    Got it today. Even better than expected. Super sturdy cardboard box with Classics-like artwork. Trailer is sandwiched in a plastic tray. Instructions are done Classics-style too. Simple and elegant.

    Trailer itself is amazing, quality on par with official products. All components are rock solid and paint apps have been nicely applied. Transformation is fairly easy: detach Rollout from the trailer, compress the wheels toward the body, Rollout is ready. Now unfold the 2 black panels from under the trailer to give the base some height, then deploy all the different panels to form the base. Easy but far more interesting than all the G1-like trailer because ramps unfold from all directions. You also need to fold up the little crane inside as it sits upside-down in trailer mode.

    In base mode, there's a little landing pad for Legends Cosmos (as seen on the box), 2 compartments with 2 hidden guns, one for Bumblebee, one for Rollout, ramps, a rack to store Prime's weapons, a crane cab that can rotate, move up and own, an articulated crane arm too. You could also stand the little Spike and Sparkplug figures (Impossible Toys? can't remember who made them) next to the crane's cab, there's a little platform up there. You can park deluxe cars in the base too.

    Unlike the City Commander trailer, this one can turn. You can also store one deluxe car inside in this mode.

    Seriously, it fits superbly the neo-G1 theme of Classics. Prime was an update of the G1 figure and so is this trailer. Money well spent.

    Got mine today as well, FAR better than I expected. OUTSTANDING quality, you would never know this was an unofficial product.
    Roller is superb, lots of detail. Great paint apps, especially on Roller. Everything looks real professional and fits together well.
    ReproLabels needs to make a set for this.

    My one gripe, same as a lot of people is that rollers wheels don't lock in trailer mode. Other than that its pretty much perfect.

    Just want to say, I did the box design for this product, along with doing the bios for both version Rollers. :)  I'll be getting my trailers soon, thanks to BTS, and can't wait. :D

    Honestly, I'm quite underwhelmed by that. It looked so much better in the pre-release pictures. The box art is gorgeous though!

    Glad I decided against one of these.

    OR1ON P4X, could you take a picture of the bottom of the trailer and one from the side hitched to Optimus? I want to see what the black panels that give it height look like and how much room there is between the trailer and the cab. Thanks for all of your information. It is really helping me decide to buy or not to buy.

    Seconded, I also would like to see what that looks like as well (have been waiting on someone to post a review).

    Thanks in advance.

    I saw on the BTStoys website that this thing can be towed by Animated Deluxe Prime, but has anyone tried having it towed by Animated Voyager Prime?

    If so, can I request pics?

    Thanks for the review. Not much of a base mode, but Roller, the guns and the trailer mode are great. I'm glad that I ordered mine.
