    So I'm finally getting a Classics Prime. But he looks a lot better in vehicle mode with a trailer. So, is dropping the cash for one of these a good idea? Is there another trailer I should get?

    Does the mirror gimmick really win you over? Because you won't get too much else out of it. Trailers tend to be boxes on wheels, and this is no exception, although it does have a couple of nice little additions. If you're comfortable with the price, and you like the gimmicks, go for it.

    I've been leaning more towards the fans project trailer lately, but the bts one is nice also

    You also get a pile of weapons with it, so there's that bonus. I think Toy Arena's still got it for $70, although you missed out when it was going for cheaper.

    But if you want a trailer to complete Classics Optimus' vehicle mode (and it does go a bit better with Classics, over Henkei. The blues don't match the Henkei version), then there's no better substitute. The thing is awesome.

    G3 is the FanProject one.

    The FansProject Trailer is the G3 one

    How good the G3 trailer is depends on how much you like the gimmickry. If all you want is something for Prime to tow in vehicle mode, you could probably buy the Mechtech Trailer (I dunno if it's compatible with Classics Prime, but since it's scaled for a Voyager, I assume it's the same size as the G3). However, if you like having Roller and the Repair Turret, then you'd like the G3. Personally, a large part of my motivation for getting the G3 was the bonus weapons for the other Classics figures it came with

    G3 was a great purchase all around on my part. Chrome weapons for my other Henkei figures, Roller, and an awesome trailer for my Henkei Convoy that doubles as a display base (you can see in my Collection video, link's in my sig).

    I have the G3 trailer and I don't regret it one bit. A buddy of mine has the BTS one and I wasn't really impressed with it. It looked decent as a trailer but base mode looks weird to me and the interior seemed really flimsy IMO.

    I bought the G3 Trailer but never really took it out and played with it. Now I'm not even sure if I need a trailer. Should I hold on to it or sell it? How much can I get for it?

    I really like the G3 trailer and I would recommend it. Roller is awesome, and the "repair bot" inside is very nicely articulated. There are chrome weapons too as others have said. It is also very versatile....stand alone trailer....DIA commander can attach to the back....opens to battle station....and can even stand up to use as OP's repair bay. No brainer in my opinion. The "mirror" gimmick is an added option and to be honest, is not really that bad.

    I love having updated G1 characters so it was nice to actually get the G3 trailer when it was cheap on bbts a few months ago. Honestly more chrome weapons for my henkei figures and a trailer for prime just gives Optimus Prime an even more updated G1 look. I'd go with G3 over the other trailer any day.

    But the DOTM Voyager Prime with trailer is $90. I can get a G3 trailer for cheaper than that.
    Thanks. That is actually really helpful.

    Hold onto it until I can afford it!

    It's worth it definitely. Lots of love went into the creation for it. The mirrors are awesome. The detail is impressive. Built very well. Roller and the repair bay are great touches. Dug the extra weapons and the fact that you can store them and the sprues in the bay.

    Yep. I love my G3 trailer. I have not once regretted that purchase. Once you have it in hand, the build quality and attention to detail will be readily apparent. It has a very nice heft to it as well. And as others have stated, the included weapons cache is an awesome bonus that anyone with a Classics collection can appreciate.

    I love it, but I immediately had to buy a 3rd Classics Prime to go with it so I could display it in trailer mode in my collection. The base is a nice update to the G1, but it is just too bulky for my collection display. Rollar is really nice as well, and FP (as always) really did well with the detailing and quality of the build.

    The only issue I really had was there are a bunch of little pegs on the inside of the trailer that the weapons can be stored on while still on the trees. Didn't really like the look of these pegs without anything on them, so I left most of my weapons on the trees. Would love if someone came out with some sort of tech center that utilized those pegs.

    The trailer is definately a nice addition to the classics collection even if it is a bit boxier than the BTS one. there is just something goofy with the design of the BTS for me, but I can see how some like its look better with the classic aestitic.

    I have one and enjoy it a lot. The mirror gimmick is awesome. If you have a bunch of other classic autobots characters, there are probably a few weapons in it for you also. I think its well worth the price, even though I got mine for $50 at Christmas last year.

    G3 Trailer is the way to go. Reprolabels has a nice label set as well for the G3 trailer.
    I bought the Shattered Glass BTS Trailer for SG Optimus Prime.
