    hello fellow radicons!!..its adypax here..nd here is my 3rd, 10mins minor mod..

    i love the takara's optimus prime with trailer..but i didnt like the voyager Dotm Prime to pull it around..I love HFTD voyager Prime..but he got no trailer hitch..so what did i do??..i did something that i never thot i would do on my fav prime..

    so i took off hftd optimus prime trailer hitch..and cut the sides off..now the black connector already looks like a trailer hitch and once i connected the dotm trailer to it..
    well..waddya know it fits nicely..now i have a very almost accurate dotm prime with trailer!!..yay for me..

    c&c are welcome..cos im a still a noob at this things..

    Nice idea! I wonder if it'd work well with Ultimate Optimus Prime's trailer...

    Doubt it. HftD Voy Prime is tiny in alt mode.

    was thinking to drill a hole too..but the height clearance between the hitch and trailer would be an issue..thanks guys!!!

    i think the easier way would to have just take the back part off & stick it there.

    that would be easier sir..but then the trailer would be without the rear mudguards and he will look naked..

    Leader Optimus already had a hole. I had to glue on the peg so the trailer would be parallel to the ground. If I used the regular peg, it would tilt forward and the back wheels would be off the ground.

    I know the thread is talking about the voyager toy, but I thought you were talking about mine when you quoted my link earlier...
