    The Takara's version of Voyager DOTM Optimus Prime with trailer i think is really awesome but almost $100 price point is fricking ridiculous. Is there any good possibility Hasbro will bring the MechTech Trailer and release it state side? It would be allot more affordable to collectors and kids, assuming it would most likely retail here for about $30-$40. What are your thoughts? Any chances?

    It's an empty box with Mechtech ports on it. Chances are slim that what Tak/To released we'll see from Hasbro. If they were to release it they'd do something to make it more worth while for the $50-$60 price tag it would carry. Like give you mech tech weapons.

    Nope. Screws up Hasbro's size classes, which Takara doesn't have to worry about.

    Ultimate Optimus is most likely the closest thing we're going to get, it seems.

    I'd love it if Hasbro would start selling online only stuff like this on HTS.

    It sucks that its a long shot for this figure's release from hasbro but that would be a good way to get it out to collectors at least

    Heard trailer in the movie turns into a ringed weapons rack. I would rather have that.

    This. I was about to say the same, actually. It would kinda make sense as a Voyager + trailer set at the Leader price point. Plus, it would give us some way to get a Mechtech sword/shield or battle axes or something (not counting the oversized axe from Fireburst OP, of course).

    Am I the only one still wishing that they'd just release a trailer add-on for RotF Prime? I mean, come on, he's begging to have one!

    That's a bit of trying to fit a round peg into a nonexistent hole. And when has Hasbro EVER done such a thing?

    If it were ever to happen it would be a store exclusive like Legends Devastator.

    Hasbro releasing a trailer by itself for ROTF Prime? Never going to happen. However the way the 3rd Parties have been going don't rule it out that way.

    As for the Voyager Prime with the trailer sadly it's not likely to happen as Hasbro fears it will cannibalize sales of Ultimate Prime (which I personally have no use for). So I'm going to have to pay in the price range of Ultimate Prime (If not a bit more) to get the one I want from Takara.

    it does
    I was thinking a trailer that transforms into a base "ring" and holds the shield, axe etc... in the trailer

    That's because Takara has the ability to price individual items different prices ex: sideswipe 14$ Bumblebee 17$

    I actually holded off on buying the DOTM Voyager Prime mold all this time hopeing that Hasbro would release the Takara Voy Prime w/trailer but now it looks like it will never happen and I will have to buy Voy Prime mold without the trailer :(  that sucks!

    Anybody else skipped picking up the new DOTM Voy Prime mold hopeing that Hasbro would release the Takara version with the trailer?
