    I don't much like the RID Optimus compaired to the FE. So I'm displaying the RID in ALT mode and would like to give him a trailer. Any suggestions?

    Pic's, and details would be nice. :D

    Slightly hijacking this thread, does anyone have pics of All Star Prime's trailer with RtS G2 Prime? It should fit pretty well, I think.

    I've seen some members posting pictures of the figure with the Movie Trilogy OP's trailer.

    They are a million miles off. Deluxe DotM Optimus is TINY. There is no way in hell his trailer is going to come close to fitting PRiD Optimus.

    Yeah, I've seen pictures of it, too. And I think it looks silly.

    Now I have. Thanks. It looks stupid. The trailer looks tiny compared to the cab. Not only doesn't it sit flat and the wheels are completely the wrong size (and don't all touch the ground), but the size of the trailer itself is comically small when placed on the PRiD cab. Like a fat adult trying to wear a pair of skinny kid's pants. They look like a bad joke together.

    Maybe in a photo taken from the exact right angle, you can fake it enough. But in real life, no. If the thread starter is looking for something that is going to look good for display with PRiD Optimus, it is NOT the Movie Trilogy trailer. Keep looking and don't let any blind people convince you the Movie Trilogy trailer is going to fit the bill. It looks silly.

    The All Star trailer would probably go with the deluxe prime, but definately not voyager. I don't even need to put it with mine cause of the already obvious size difference. Outside of that not sure what might work, maybe the voyager trailer but you've gotta drop about 80+ to get it.

    Imagine if MASK's Rhino had a trailer like that more often.

    That would be a kick ass way to update an alteady cool vehicle by giving it a trailer like Outlaw or Movie Optimus toys sometimes have,

    I would guess some of the following might work : takara Movie Voyager Trailer or it's fake, The BTS Trailer or the G3 Trailer. or even a Trailer from G1 Optimus Prime or Powermaster prime - but linking them up might be tricky in some cases.

    I've tried the DOTM Ultimate OP trailer with FE OP. Scale wise the trailer is a bit larger than the cab, the hitch peg is too big for the hole in the hitch, but the wheels look to be the same size. Since I don't own a PRID Optimus, it is my understanding that it is only a bit smaller in truck mode (let me know if I'm wrong). I was also looking for a pic of the Japanese exclusive DOTM Voyager Prime w/ trailer as a suitable trailer for my FE OP so you might want to see if that one is more to your liking. I'm probably going to just use the Ultimate trailer for my FE Prime...

    Try looking at it in person. It doesn't bother you that the trailer looks so short in height and length compared to the scale of the cab? It doesn't bother you that it clearly sits at such an angle with its wheels off the ground?

    Come on, this looks silly.

    Voyager DOTM Prime's trailer would likely work. KOs of it on eBay go for around $40.

    G2 Laser Optimus Prime's trailer fits perfect with FE Optimus

    I did look it at it in person. When I took the photos. I'm not trying to argue that it looks great, I just don't think it looks that bad. I know it should probably bother me, but it really doesn't.

    Ah, sorry about that. Yeah, I guess mileage varies in this as it does in almost anything. I just couldn't in good conscience recommend it.

    I can't help thinking that there is a better than good chance that someone who buys the Movie Trilogy Optimus just for the trailer to use with PRiD is going to be disappointed by the size disparity. If he already owned it or if he planned to buy it anyway because he liked the DotM toy, that would be different. But if he wouldn't otherwise buy it, I think there are better ways for him to spend the $30 and get a trailer he would be a lot happier with.
