    Aren't the only missiles that come with G1 Prime the ones that fit the trailer bay robot?

    Alright, I went ahead and snapped a missile off of the runner from my New Year's Convoy reissue just to help answer this. It's the short pod shaped kind. I've also got a long safety-style missile with the pod tip from the initial U.S. reissue.

    The important difference here is that the U.S. version had vertical grooves on the shaft, which has been common in more modern toys than G1. I guess it was retooled this way in addition to the missile length since this keeps them locked in better. The Takara New Year's reissue'd got the original style completely round shaft.

    I couldn't even fit the Takara missiles into the MP-10 repair-bot's cannons, unless maybe I forced them. The post would have to be filed down. The grooves on the long U.S. missiles made the post just thin enough to fit in there snugly. It won't close with the long missiles, but it was clear that the shorter missiles would collide with the "shelves" on the trailer walls as well, even if they had fit.

    So, the long missiles at least fit when it's open. Since the trailer is large, they don't look quite as comically huge. The short missles would probably be better if they fit, but it still wouldn't close. I don't have the entire library of missile variants, but from what I'm seeing, the only option for closing the trailer would be to cut any missile off below the pod tip, leaving 3/4-1/2 inch of post that may have to be filed down slightly to fit. It looks as though it might close if the pod was resting flush against the gun barrel.

    Then what are you waiting for? Go buy an MP-10 and a G1 Convoy reissue and show us how it's done.
