    Like I did with my MP Prime cardboard trailer, I took this trailer from another toy and added a peg to its post. I also added a few Reprolabel Autobot symbols. Now it can be hauled around by RotF leader OP and looks pretty good carrying the other movie Autobots :wink: 

    (I've sure been getting a lot of practice transforming this guy lately. His arms are STILL a pain :lol  )

    Hmmm... It would give me something to do with the '07 movie Optimus Prime... Some Lego pieces, some magnets... :p

    :thumbs2: 

    I got it from Target, but I've only seen it available during the holiday season. It has the truck, trailer, several smaller vehicles to ride in the trailer, and it was all only $5. It's pretty cheap plastic. I think it's just a quick money grabber they put out for Christmas. I saw it the last two years, hopefully it'll come out again this year...

    That would be awesome if you could somehow turn this into Ultra Magnus.

    Thanks guys!


    This is how I always envisioned movie Ultra Magnus, having a realistic trailer instead of a futuristic one.

    Yeah, that's my favorite part! At some point I'll have to display Prime in Stealth Force mode with the Autobots on the trailer in robot modes, armed, holding onto the sides of the trailer, standing on top, and ready to fire!!!

    I was just at Walmart and saw the trailer there. I wanted to let you guys know if anyone was interested. It again comes with the semi and several cars to put on the trailer, but the trailer is a different color now.

    Also, it was $20. I was thinking of getting it so I'd have a spare when I start an Ultra Magnus custom, but decided I'd wait and see if it dropped in price...
