    Disappointed Hound's gun isn't a better version of his hologram projector. The one which came with the toy has issues...

    Otherwise, very nice :)

    Just got this today. It is awesome.

    However, two things need to happen to make it better. First, reprolabels needs to work up a set of stickers for this bad boy. Second, another company needs to design some extras that utilize the pegs inside the trailer. Putting used chrome sprues inside of my Optimus trailer just is not going to happen. Not sure what Fansproject was thinking there, but those rows of little pegs are ripe for add-ons from other companies (perhaps even consoles that Legends figures could man like stations).

    Yeah but at the same time it was perfect for me since I already upgraded his holoprojector by taking the good from classic and fitting it up with the G1 parts(missle and shoulder clip)

    Prices when down ten bucks on TFSource. I got mine at BBTS, but right now they're sold out. I haven't opened it yet, but I think this is so cool to pass up.

    Those silver frames in the trailer are a lot less interesting to me than leaving a flat surface you can stand thing on would be.

    Or even consoles in that spot. - looks like both the BTS and Fansprojects Trailers both have design issues that make it hard to put things in the trailers.

    I just got this in yesterday from TFSource's eBay store. It was $80 shipped. This thing is awesome. The quality is top notch. A friend recommended it a while ago when I got my Nemesis Prime. I only got the Classics Prime 2 weeks ago and this is the perfect add-on. I need to get a Mirage and Hound eventually. I've got Sideswipe and the re-deco Bumblebee.

    I've got the TRU Masterpiece Grimlock. Can anyone recommend any CHUG TFs that the sword would go well with? G2 Prime comes with a sword already. Did Thunderwing ever use a sword?

    I hate to dig up this graveyard thread, but I just discovered this and it has me intrigued.

    How does the color match to Classics vs. Henkei Prime? I would much prefer the Henkei Prime, but the blue is off. Is the Classic Prime an exact match? If so, I'd go Classic. If the CLassic isn't a perfect match either, I'd go Henkei.

    Thanks.

    Go Henkei

    G3 isn't chrome but the shiny gray matches better

    Blues seem like a match to me

    Yellow ok classics is out of place


    I gotta say even with the good stuff we've gotten over the years this is still one of my favorite pieces. It's Fansproject at its best, cramming tons of features in an innovative way, with great build quality


    I love the mirror mode, I love that it comes with chromed weapons, I love the trailer hitch

    Ill never sell this thing, its why I keep a classic collection in addition to MP

    I just got this trailer today from BBTS. Everything looked fine until I got to the Stealth Mode. The instructions (and reviews) state that the mirrored surface is covered by an adhesive tape. There was none. The mirrors look like someone took a large wire brush and scratched every square inch.

    Has anyone else encountered this?

    I got mine in today. Classics voyager Prime was the toy that got me back into transformers and always lamented that Hasbro never made a trailer for it. Few years ago when I started getting into the third party scene I found out about this but never got around to getting it til now. Better late than never! I love this thing. I finally feel like my classics Prime is complete and I have it displayed in alt mode with his trailer finally attached. I love the stealth mode too, which was one of the appeals to me. The additional weapons are pretty cool too.

    If anyone has this trailer, I highly recommend the TF4 AOE Evolution Prime to go with it, even over the Henkei version of Optimus' mold. Evolution Prime's chrome legs, yellow eyes, and overall classic G1 toy deco go great with the G3 trailer for a truly complete, re-imagined version of the G1 toy.

    Also, if anyone is buying this trailer brand new via a retailer (such as BBTS), disregard my above post regarding scratches. The trailer comes packaged with protective tape over the Stealth Mode panels. In old reviews, the tape was blue; the new batch seems to be completely clear and transparent. I was lucky enough to have a BBTS rep help me figure this out.
