    So I have the Takara MP Prime w/ the JustItoys Trailer and the Hasbro MP Prime. Since they're rereleasing the Hasbro MP Prime and MP PRime w/ trailer (which I really want) so I was going to sell my Takara MP PRime BUT the box was signed by Mr. Peter Cullen "Optimus" himself and I'll prob lose money selling it. So should I:

    1) Be a completist, go broke and buy both the rerelease?
    2) Buy the Takara rerelease and switch the boxes and sell one.

    And I usually buy from TFSource but I was going to buy MP03 and MP04 from robotkingdom which will save me $60 (less shipping which will probably run about $30) In the end, I'll prob get it cheaper and faster. Has anyone dealt with them before?

    If you have the original with a trailer why do you need the new one?

    Oh and don't sell yours...having Peter Cullen's signature automatically makes it priceless!

    Whatever you do, don't sell that signed box, that's for sure!

    I'm in the same situation where I have the JustIToys trailer with the MP Prime cab. I think it would be safe to skip the MP-04. The JustIToys trailer displays perfectly in Alt mode, and who cares if it doesn't open.

    I'd still get the new US 20th Prime since the deco is significantly different than any other release.

    Grimlock - The JustItToys Trailer isn't transformable and it doesn't fit any alternators so the new trailer is improved and officially licensed (too bad there's no roller)

    Cheebs - I def see your point and I most likely will get the US 20th Prime b/c of the colors. What suckers we are for repaints and slightly repainted bots.

    Think of it this way, how often are you going to open the trailer and play around with it? Or store a BT or Alt in it? If it is strickly display piece, then just skip the new trailer and keep yours how it is.

    Don't sell your signed one. That's one of a kind!
