    Seems a little silly, but I guess it's not unexpected.

    Maybe on the next iteration the trailer will be COVERED IN CHROME.

    That's pretty cool. I didn't know it had a trailer. Now the price doesn't seem all that high to me =P

    I like the black and white look Prime himself looks like he was cut from an old movie. I don't really care for the clear trailer.

    So it is true that Convoy has its conscious transferred to his trailer/roller. This is why the trailer/roller is still active and Convoy in "sleep"/"play dead" mode.

    I'm debating on getting another MP Convoy mold. IMHO, this looks better than the MP-01B release.

    On a side note. I Bet there will be another MP Seeker release in the next 18 months.

    The clear trailer is sort of a funny idea.... as if, when Prime dies, his trailer becomes a ghost as well. Or maybe, since Prime died in robot mode, the trailer gets stuck forever in subspace! Poor thing.... it and Roller are like Egyptian slaves who get killed and buried with their master when he dies. :p 

    Speaking of Roller, anyone actually considering buying this Cadaver Convoy (and I count myself among those) should do themselves a favor and check out the KO Transparent MP Roller Set on BBTS. It's on sale for next to nothing, since up till now it's unlikely anyone saw the need for a clear Roller. But it would look quite spiffy with this clear trailer, I think, and it was limited to only 500 pieces (at least that's what they say). Even though I'm still a bit on the fence about Convoy himself, I pre-emptively dropped one of these little suckers into my Pile of Loot this morning just in case I take the plunge.

    Meh...I'll pass...if the trailer was "dead clear" - like smoked in effect with a non-colored autobot symbol and stripe, I would buy but since it's not...I'll pass and put that $300 elsewhere...

    the red autobot insignia and the blue on the trailer doesn't make sense at all....too pricey for me

    prime himself looks cool though

    I'm finding that pretty sweet. Seems fairly accurate, but I guess the transparent trailer is just completely made up (since it wasn't actually shown around OP's "death")?

    I'm thinking it'll be the silver, 'reawakened, coated, spore proof' MP-Prime...

    And it'll come in two variants, painted silver paint apps or chrome plated bling silver version.

    They'd better sell it with a matching trailer either way!
