    Haven't seen these for awhile, and always wanted one. Man, I can't afford one right now. He used to auction them off individually and they went for around $120.

    Edit:
    I see he's put quite a few bulk auctions up for them in the past 10 days. Go pretty quick.

    That's not a bad KO trailer. Bought one myself over a year ago.

    There is nothing that compares to this.

    The non-TFing one is retarded IMO, and the TFing one Takara put out is different, new molding and takes on things.

    This is just a scaled up version of G1 Primes deal, and perfect at that. No MP Prime should be without this.

    I saw the last auction of these go so fast i didn't even get to post a thread about it in this forum. I am thinking about getting one but I am in Aus so will cost me about $172AUS including shipping and I only payed $100AUS for Masterpiece Optimus so do you guys really think its worth that much cash?

    I mean, its just plastic right, not diecast?

    The shipping is the only thing that holding me back too. I had a DVD Prime, duffle bag, and air fresner(all some premier giveaway) shipped from Canada for under $20.

    How is it packaged?

    So you're all set to get one then? So you reackon its worth the asking price just for a trailer. Its just I look at the price all up and see a few transformers in it or one trailer. I mean, MP needs a trailer, but this would end up costing more than the MP-04 set :S

    To answer your question though I think packaging is acceptable. Looking at feedback one person said their box was damaged in transit - not the trailer, and no-one else has said anything bad about shipping apart from one about the price.

    I've wanted one for a year and it looks to be worth every penny at $100, BUT THE DAMN SHIPPINGS OVER A THIRD OF THE COST! I'm still on the fence, but I have a crude-it card that wants to buy it for me. I feel for you overseas folk, I wouldn't buy it for $175.

    Yeah I know what you mean and yeah sometimes being so far away from USA and Japan does suck for collecting Transformers. I remember buying THS02 and saying that'll be my MP Prime, then I manage to find the classics version of MP Prime for $100 and even though I have MP Magnus, Prime still rocks. THS02 comes with a trailer so I said, "I don't need one for MP Prime" but now, one that is exactly the same as G1 (which I never had, i only had G2 and I sold that when I was younger), it would go perfectly with my Prime considering the colouring of the edition I have.

    Edit:
    To be honest I always consider shipping part of the cost price because most of the time the seller gets some of the shipping money as well (ie: doesn't cost em what they charge - of course there are many honest sellers as well). But yeah, I mean if $137 (including insurance) is good for this trailer USD then I say go for it, but I wouldn't think of it as being $100 and shipping, just an overall cost - but that's just my thinking.

    That looks awesome, even better than the official version, iMO. I really want one. I hope they're still available when I can afford it, time to start looking for stuff to sell.

    Just thought I'd chuck it up cause I know like me, there are a few people on the fence

    I bought this trailer a while back and it is definitely worth it.

    One thing I don't like, though, is the stickers. They are printed on very cheap paper and the two stripes along the sides of the trailer are extremely difficult to apply perfectly. They don't allow for any mistakes and once they touch the plastic, they're stuck! If you buy this trailer, definitely be ready for the stickers.

    Other than that, this is a great piece. My roller wouldn't stay in but I altered the spring and it works perfectly. Definitely recommended!

    I have that one and love it. The kiss-player girls even fit in the seats and the repair gun cockpit.

    But does anyone now who or what that human figure is in the pictures?

    I bought one of these a little over a week ago. I've been eagerly waiting for it. How long did it take to ship for anyone else who bought one and lives in the states?

    What he said! I have one and I LOVE IT!!!


    The thing is, he's in Canada, but it ships from China. That's why the shipping is high and it takes a little while to get it. But man is it worth it

    At first glance it looks kinda cool; an alternative to the more hefty and accurate sized Justitoys one. But the plastic looks cheap and yellowing, and the stickers dont really fit the MP aesthetic. I'll stick to the real thing, (which cost me a fraction of what this one's going for) thanks.
