    You can easily ask your favorite radicon to make you one, although it is HIGHLY unlikely that you will get it for anything less than $400....

    It takes time, up to and beyond a year, to design and produce toys and accessories. DotM only came out 4 months ago. Have patience.

    In the meantime, start saving up. The G3 trailer was released at $90, BTS trailer at $70 (?) and you're asking for this DotM trailer to do far more than both of those. It's not going to be priced below $50.

    How about a Dlx Jetfire that comes to bits like a Kabaya kit to parts form into Jet-Optimus ?

    One idea might be to have long wings and stuff that can store inside the Legacy Trailer to wing-Optimus the cab that comes with that all in one box.

    If you want just the trailer buy the Japanese Exclusive.

    I don't think its impossible to make quite cheap wing add ones all you need is a partly hollow wing system that fits over his kibble block it would only need to be 5 separate pieces of plastic. plus a couple of chain guns maybe.

    I can see someone making the chainguns and sword / axe if you ask nicely.

    Even if they didn't have to charge more, they probably could charge more, so why wouldn't they?

    LMAO! The $40 price point is so funny! Don't think it'll happen at that price. and i don't think 3rd parties will risk making movie styled toys since it's not what the collectors usually buy (think classics, G1s, and MPs)

    Anyone else kind of get a sarcastic vibe from OP's post? It's kind of like he's making fun of people who complain about prices for 3rd party products.

    I'll throw my hat into the ring with you for extra incentive on the maker. You got another 40 bucks here as long as it is cast in resin and comes with led lights and smoke effects coming off the backpack.

    Yup. I could really care less about one for the Deluxe Prime (wouldn't mind if they gave us a basic trailer for him with no gimmicks). A leader class one similare to the custom one we have seen would be epic in the display. Wouldn't need the flight tech (hopefully Hasbro releases that Prime at some point). Just the circle with weapons on it.

    As far as saying that collectors wouldn't be into it, there are plenty of collectors who would be into good movie upgrades. Got the Starscream set on preorder, and would definately buy this one.

    pretty much.

    anyway, 30$ shipped. 40$ is too rich for my blood.
