    So i know im late to the party but i need some advice. I really want MP Prime with his trailer. Should i try looking for a MP-01 Prime and buy the Justittoys trailer separately? or will i be saving money if i just get the MP-04 that already comes with the trailer? Also which trailer just looks better?

    Yeah its not even worth tracking down MP-01. Everyone wants 200+ for that Convoy and when you think about it.... for that price, you could buy the same figure PLUS a trailer.

    No Brainer in my opinion, MP04.

    EDIT: Also, keep in mind the Knockoff Trailer is what 60 dollars?

    None that i've ever noticed. Takara doesn't do the Hasbro

    "Alright, this is the second reissue. Make Prime Hot pink and give him a purple gun"

    MP04 all the way baby! I'm glad I didn't skimp on this guy. He's awesome! Cool pictures there Chris! Except the last picture is missing the WST Prime on top of G1 Prime!

    I lol'd xD

    Maybe you guys can help. I've already got MP Prime (it's the 20th anniversary DVD one to be specific lol) so what's the best option if I want just the trailer? And do any of the official ones come with Roller?

    (I actually came onto this forum to make a topic about which trailer I should go for =P)

    Why go for an unofficial trailer/MP1, when one can get the complete package such as MP4?

    The only reason I can think of is reports of quality control issues with MP-04.

    I myself would go with MP-04. But i bought MP-01 when it first came out. I decided to keep it and years later bought an official trailer from a board member. the guy was from Australia. I believe MP-04 was released locally over there.

    I would say if you already have MP-01 just go ahead and get the KO trailer. You'll save money. that or sell your MP-01 and use the money to buy MP-04.
