    I'm sure someone else has already done this, but I got both the Fansproject and the BTS-01 Classics Prime trailers in the mail yesterday, so I thought I'd post some comparison pics for those still one the fence about which one to get.

    If anyone's interested, I have some more pics, and am happy to answer questions about either trailer. Enjoy!

    The G3 Trailer isn't by iGear it's by Fans Project.

    Excuse me, I have some tact. Make way,..make way.

    Thanks for all the pictures.

    It's genuinely helpful to see these for people that don't have them yet.

    You, sir, are absolutely correct! Don't know what I was thinking, but I fixed my post. Can a mod fix the title, please?

    For a minute there, I thought iGear had KO'd BTS.Toy's trailer. :lol 

    I like the group shot with the BTS Trailer in base mode. The G3 trailer's base looks plain compared to it.

    Both trailers are pretty cool. The G3 trailer actually has more features though. There's the "stealth mode" with the mirrors, and the repair bay mode. Roller shoots out just like G1 Prime's trailer. The drone thingy stands up and can become a weapons platform for Prime. And the trailer has the attachment to pull the City Commandor armor. And the whole set comes with extra weapons for some of the other Classics characters.

    The BTS trailer is cool in that it folds out into a little base, but there isn't much else going on. It does come with a new gun for Classics Bumblebee, though.

    I guess I feel that you get more features with the G3 trailer. Just my opinion though.

    Man I wish I could afford a g3. I just spent 200 on the diaclone commander, and the superion upgrade set. I wish I had the money to get this g3 trailer.

    i had major complaints about the design and quality of the BTS trailer but i liked the styling much more than the g3. it matches the neo-g1 theme a lot better than the g3

    the g3 does have so much more features but it also costs money so when it comes down to it, you get what you pay for

    I think this would be a better comparison if you also showed the mirror mode and the vertical bay mode of the g3 trailer. I also think you should show the sticker sheet. How come you don't have the other side of the bts trailer open?

    I don't have it, but any I don't think it opens, atleast none of the pictures of it or the video review I watched have it open.

    G3 for the win. No doubt about that. I like it but I can't purchase it right now.

    Yup, what barrelks said. BTS Trailer only opens up one side. The other side is fixed.

    And yeah, I agree with jason_jupiter that the aesthetics of the BTS trailer fits classics/henkei Optimus Prime better than the G3 Trailer. Although that's the only advantage BTS has over G3...

    For me, these trailers are huge space wasters... so I'm going for the more superior product. Have sold both my BTS OP and Nemesis Trailers to accommodate the G3 one.

    G3 FTW, not enough extras going on with the bts trailer to justify it's price tag, every aspect of the G3 has had thought and consideration put into it, bts's collapsing side bugs me

    I'm gonna go with the G3 trailer, just looks too perfect. Plus I love all the weapons it comes with.

    Several things prevented me from buying the BTS Trailer. I really don't like the aesthetics of it. It looks like they didn't know what to do with half of it. Roller IS the wheels of the trailer. The bits that prop up the trailer are just flat slabs. The guns look pretty meh to me. Those cabinets are too big and seem pretty useless. The overall quality just didn't look that great from all the reviews I saw of it. Plus I knew the G3 trailer was coming.

    Having seen prototype pics of the G3 trailer, and already owning some Fansproject products, I already knew it would be 1000 X better than the BTS trailer. All the features and the design and aesthetics of the G3 trailer look SOOOOO much better to me than the BTS one. People have been complaining about the stealth mode.... I had that thing pre-ordered before I even knew about the stealth mode, so that was just something extra to justify the price even more. Mine hasn't arrived yet, but I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on it. IMHO even though I never owned the BTS one..... G3 >>>>>>> BTS
