    Buy G3 and don't look back.

    The reason the BTS trailer has been slashed so heavily is probably that now that the G3 is out, they can't sell the damned things anymore :D .

    G3 is where it is at. Fansproject's trailer just does so much more. It has a better claw/repair bay mode with roller (who can hold the weapons, launch, among other things), it can fold out like the original, the claw can go into pew pew turret mode, and there are weapons and weapon pegs for other classic toys.

    Not to mention the sexy mirror mode.

    Really, I didn't even give the BTS a second glance, even before G3 was revealed. Its disjointed design kills it for me. I appreciate the attempt to do something different and in line with the Classics redesigns, but it didn't work. It's half a truck trailer welded to a ... camper? It doesn't look like anything.

    Now G3 has its problem of being a bit overly large for the truck that's actually towing it, but that's more a fault of the original design that it's supposed to be replicating. It's just got tons more bells and whistles, equaling a ridiculous amount of playability. It's a solid, high quality piece of work. Sure, it's pricey, but in the end, you feel that you've gotten more than you deserved for your money. It's beautiful.

    The BTS trailer never interested me since I knew the G3 was coming. I got the G3 and it's freakin awesome. There's several things I really didn't like about the BTS one. The fact that Rollar IS the trailer wheels, the flimsy-ness of the base mode, the plain flat pannels the flop down to support the trailer, the big cabinets for the guns that just get in the way, plus I just don't like the look of the design of the BTS trailer. There just isn't nearly as much thought or quality put into the BTS as there is in the G3.

    I'd have to agree with the crowd here: G3 without a doubt!

    I wouldn't mind picking up the other one for Nemesis Prime, but otherwise stick with G3.

    G3 is the way to go. You will get the best bang for your buck.

    G3. This is not debatable or up for discussion. This is one of a few things about transfandom that is a matter of fact, not opinion.
