    Sorry but it looks way too cartoony to me.

    If all the black panel lines were gone and instead there were actual grooves and a more interesting visual depth to the trailer then maybe I'd like it more.

    looks like all they did was scan in the patterns from the cardboard cutout and print it on some Styrene and add some wheels.

    It's the lack of detailing on the plastic. The drawn parts make it look cartoony.

    Last I saw this thing, it said it was made out of PVC.

    I'm pretty sure we saw this before. Isn't this a custom someone made out of foamboard?

    Not a snowball's chance in Hell I'd spend $70 on an accessory for a toy that cost me $20.

    How does it look with FE Optimus in truck mode? You're using both FE Optimus and PRiD optimus.

    I think it looks pretty cool, by the way.

    But is it $70 cool? Especially when it's made of styrofoam.

    Pass. I only like buying trailers when they have cool gimmicks. You could buy a G3 trailer for that $70.

    Thanks for the pic:thumb 

    Yikes! $70?! Tttttthat's a bit much for anything, really. I wasn't aware the trailer was for sale, and I never thought of owning one myself, but still for something handmade, it does look cool, just not my cup of tea (for purchase, anyway).

    I'd be interested in making one like it myself. Foam core is really nice to work with.

    Yeah, a guy who posts as chenchuanhao makes these, they are custom non-transforming trailers he makes for different size primes.

    Oh boy. I ordered 1 of these under the assumption that it was going to made out of plastic like the G1 trailer. I'm not impressed with any of these pics so far an feel like Iv just been stripped of $70. Your saying this thing is made outta styrofoam ?

    ^^ Well kinda...it's foamcore. It's foam with sturdy card on either side. It will display well, but it's not a toy. $70 is reasonable given the labor involved, but it seems the seller should make it more clear this isn't a toy.
