DOTM Deluxe Optimus Prime with Trailer Review - YouTube
How well does this trailer fit on the Voyager RID Prime?
I don't know, but I will try later today when I get home and let you know.
Well, I'll probably wait for a sale if I do, but that trailer is shinier than I thought, and the way it opens could make for a nice backdrop when shown from the outside. Like, I still wish the deluxe prime was as nicely detailed as the single pack ones (especially in the wheels being painted because the alt mode is basically the selling point here), but its definitely not as bad as I thought initially, and it might be worth getting on sale like you said. If nothing else, it might be a nice trailer to use on the RID Voyager Prime, especially since I think that one looks really great in alt mode, and maybe even on the RTS deluxe.
... copypasta ftw!
I double the sentiments of everyone else. I think the trailer looks good and, if it fits on the PRID Prime, then I'm definitely getting him. I want to take all the weapons that don't have a hidden place in vehicle mode and drop them in the trailer when I put the figures in vehicle mode.
Well honestly, even if the pegs don't match up, you can always fix that yourself. I guess I could've mentioned the FE voyager too, but I like that one better in robot mode while I like the RID in alt mode, so yeah.
Thanks for the review! Although I prefer the paint on the walmart version of the Optimus, I do like the darker grey plastic on this one. I hope my TRU gets this soon.
A couple comments though: The trailer is not really out of proportion. If you've ever seen the real thing (or just seen screenshots from the movie) you will notice that the trailer is actually quite long. If anything, the trailer could even be a tiny bit longer and still be OK (and it wouldn't hurt if it could transform into the base they showed us in the movie )
Also, movie Optimus' trailer does NOT have the blue stripe down the side, so that is also accurate on this toy. What he SHOULD have is painted rims, but I plan to use my walmart deluxe version with the trailer anyway
Is he part of the DOTM line?
Dr. Prime must be a doctor: "the medial side"
I LOVE your signature.
Wasn't aware that this edition didn't come with a weapon. Seems like we're paying more like $20 for the trailer considering the deluxe doesn't have an included Mech Tech weapon.
Packing is really awesome, but then this edition seems more like a collectors piece to stay in the box as play features seem really limited.
Honestly, the best route seems to be grab a Walmart edition at discount if you can and then try to get this on sale for a best of both worlds.
Actually, it fits and looks ok. Only problem is that the voyager is taller, so the trailer is angled and the not all the wheels in the back touch the ground
Thanks for the comments Yeah, I've had someone else say that too and I do realize that it is actually proportionate to the one in the movie. That said, the cab still looks too small to me. In my mind I am comparing them to real life 18 wheelers and I think the cab could at least be a bit taller, but thats just me
As far as the stripe, that is also personal preference. I have the SDCC Ultimate OP with the blue decal and I think it looks awesome
Sort of. Technically its the "Movie Trilogy Series", which will be a series of one figure in the US
Ha! it slipped out
Thanks! A local TFW member here in AZ painted the custom Skywarp and TC
Looks like it will at least be a nice display in the box piece.
As always, nice look at this Doc. Solid review. I think I wants this thing now!
What an un-impressive trailer
Do you have the deluxe TF: Prime Optimus? I bet the trailer looks okay with him...
Cool figure but i expected more for the trailer.
I actually like this figure, and compared to the Takara Voyager Optimus with trailer, it's pretty decent. The Takara version that I have is more to scale with the deluxe toys, but this is really nice for a Hasbro item.
IMO it's worth thirty dollars.
Well which one LOOKS better is personal preference, but as to which one is more accurate to the movie... well that's not just based on preference. I happen to prefer it without the stripe, but then again I've only seen pics of the SDCC one so I'm sure it looks cool in person too
Thanks again for the review!
Does anyone know if this is a Target/ TRU exclusive, or is Wal Mart going to carry this as well? We don't have a Traget or TRU nearby.
