    They are pretty much identical. 20th Prime has no trailer, battle damage paint aps, and short smoke stacks. The extra trailer made by another company does not transform. Go for MP04.

    Do you really need the trailer? It's just you can save an insane amount of money by just buying Prime. I went for a THS-02 Convoy to satisfy my Prime-with-trailer needs.

    I'd say forget the 20th prime and get the 25th prime. I would trade for that in a heartbeat!

    I don't see the need for getting the trailer, I'd never display MP Prime in alt mode, so the trailer just seems..unneeded.

    What I did was bought 2 20th Primes and then I was able to pick up the MP-04 trailer from board member. Displaying Prime cab w/ trailer behind the Prime bot looks awesome. I like the battle damage look of 20th Prime over MP Prime. I picked up a couple sets of long stacks as well.

    I'm a bit of a completist, so I picked up Prime with Trailer. I knew sooner or later that I'd pick up the trailer, so I just cut to the chase and went with MP-04. It's very cool and to me it's been worth it. The only pain is making the room to display it if you leave the trailer open; if it's closed in trailer mode than it's less of an issue but I like to display the trailers open (I do the same for THS-02 and 25th Anniversary). If price is an issue, just pick up the 20th Anniversary Prime by itself.
