    I know Optimus is a semi with the ability to put out fires. Most of the series he's been trailer .but as of Human error part 1 He had a trailer or plugged into a trailer like Rodimus prime. also on hasbro.com the show a Optimus firetruck but the buy now dosent work. Has anyone seen this?

    The Voyager mold of OP has a "fire truck" attachment. It is really his axe folded in on itself with a working water gun slapped on top. That is the closest you are going to get to Fire Truck Prime.

    He can attach many different trailers in the show. He has classic G1, fire truck, dump truck...it think that is all, but the fire truck is the only one represented in a toy.

    ...just have to say this, I got my OP Voyager, only to transform it the first time to discover that he didn't have his Autobot symbol...I was a very angry southerner. That is never a good thing.

    This is why i cant wait for Animated to be released in japan. The fan companies are focused on henkei stuff cuz that is what they have in stores. We might get a firetruck trailer when japan shifts focus to animated

    Because Animated is not getting to 52 episodes, it is unlikely that TakaraTomy will release Animated in Japan. That, and they watched the sales figures here very closely, to the point that it may not have been "successful" enough for TakaraTomy to consider bringing over.

    We have yet to see what "Wingblade Optimus Prime" looks like. Perhaps he has a trailer-like thingy that forms his "wings" or what have you.

    Unlikely.

    Animated never hit Japan, so they'd be relying COMPLETELY on a United States/UK source-base, and I'm pretty sure Hasbro would flip out for safety reasons.

    EDIT: I'm aware that Animated hit other countries as well, but I have no idea what the assortments or waves released there are. Sometimes they only get one to two waves of a certain size-class and that's it.

    well Takara did release Beast Wars Returns which was only 24 episodes and kinda a flop in the states too toy sales wise. I don't think it will be anytime soon but I can see Tomy using it to fill a gap and releasing the primary show characters at least

    FWIW Kickback... for the first time since Generation 1 (and maybe not even then) Australia has gotten every wave released thus far (we're currently up to the Prowl in Armour/Blurr/Waspinator wave).

    We normally get shafted.
    But there's always a few (FAB seem to be shelf warmers as does Blitzwing and Lugnutz).

    this is true. we missed a lot of the unicron trilogy lines, and some of the movie ones too. the only shelfwarmer i've seen in the animated line is ultra magnus, and we STILL have regular movie bonecrushers everywhere

    Later versions of it did add an Autobot logo, but it's really ugly. It's not the same type of emblem that every other Animated toy has.

    In a word, YES. If Powered Commander and other Classics inspired Optimus trailers can be done -- and a Rodimus Prime "Protector" trailer to follow -- then we want this!!

    We need a Fans Project type company whose sole focus is on making animated figures more awesome.
    I can think of several things that this hypothetical company could do:
    1) Firetrailer for prime
    2) conehead attachement for starscream clones
    3) some kind of body kit to bring Sentinel and Lugnut up to scale

    4) OMEGA SUPREME (j/k, sort of)

    That would be cool! :)  IF FansProject (I think it's from Japan) can make awesome Commander Trailers, I bet they could make a decent firetruck trailer for Ani Ops. BUt then again, that's if any Jap designers want to..

    -----

    And yeah, if Optimus is really a firetruck in the Animated series, there should be a firetruck version of him. I mean, I would be glad if they could make one :)

    I would buy the hell out of that.

    Someone in the Radicons section is already scratchbuilding an Animated Omega, btw.
