Optimus Prime Hit With $236,000 Insurance Premium

Saving the world from evil Decepticons isn't all it's cracked up to be. For one, the overheads are ridiculous. With gas set to hit $4.00 a gallon, Matrices of Leadership running a cool $6.5 million and less than understanding insurance agents, we're surprised they don't pack it all in for a lucrative reality TV show gig or just subcontract the work to Halliburton.
