    Robotkingdom just put up preorders for the BTS trailer -- purple and clean (?!?!) versions. Purple obviously is for Shattered Glass Prime, and by clean, I'm assuming they mean "clear" for Henkei Crystal Convoy.

    Edit - Clear version confirmed. It looks rather nice! Not sure if I want to track down another clear Convoy to put in vehicle mode, but the end result seems to be worth it. Also, new arm accessory is highlighted in the photos. Robotkingdom reports that the purple version is limited to 450, while the clear is limited to 350.

    Is that even the right shade of purple?

    I think the trailer purple needs to be more bright to be SG.

    Much rather see the g3 trailer repainted like those.

    That being said, BTS has yet to "wow" me. I have hopes though. I think they have a lot of potential!

    I'm definitely going to get this. SG Prime is the only version of the mold I own, and I really like the BTS trailer.

    The clear version is definitely something to think about. It's too bad there's no clear and coloured equivalent for G1 Prime. The coloured clear plastics used for Ghost Starscream and Henkei clear Convoy look great against a light source. Now I really want to see the Henkei clear Convoy parked next to this clear trailer.

    BBTS pre-orders up now too. They are doing that same deal where you buy both in one pre-order and get a discount, which is about $10 in this case. Not so sure about the Shattered Glass one though. I don't have any SG figs... yet. And, they would be expensive to start collecting. Hrm.

    They also have a pic of the "Clear" version that VE Talus already edited into his post below. I hadn't seen that yet until this morning. That looks really cool! Definitely a different take on the whole "Invisible trailer" that FP did with their's.

    Not really feeling the SG trailer but the clear one.... What is it about transparent plastic that's so damn sexy? I've already got the regular BTS trailer, which is kinda meh, but suddenly I want the clear one!

    Cool idea but clear plastic normally make for more fragile toys. I might get it for the novelty.

    Ah, you might've got the "clear poison" like the folks on the Singapore thread like to say :)

    Now I don't know if these can REALLY sell. :sly2: 

    I mean, just look at Shattered Glass Optimus Prime & Crystal Convoy to see how expensive these are nowadays.

    You telling me they're gonna market the duo only to have collectors buy 'em in the first place then go hunting for both of these Primes next? :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: 

    I could be wrong saying this but unless one owns these molds to begin with else its a futile attempt best avoided. :rip

    If they are going to remold parts a tail hitch for the trailer so you can daisy chain things behind it might have been nice to see.

    I hope that the guns that come with the trailers are new colors too - Purple guns for example would be nice to go with characters like CounterPunch and Bugbite.

    And the clear guns might look nice with Micron Legend Standard Convoy as indeed the Trailer might too. I'll be interested to see if the guns are transparent or if they are clear blue.

    I don't own the E-hobby Clear Convoy - But I'd still buy the clear Trailer (if i can find it for a good price) just for the guns and as i think it might look nice as a display base for clear minicons/Microns and as a trailer for the other Clear Convoys I have from other lines like Micron Legend. You can also think of the clear trailer as Transitional "Phase-mode" just before the Trailer disapears to use with the normal color one.

    But I think as a base for clear Microns & Clear Legends toys is quite a fun idea and another alternative use.

    I'd like to see the new arm pieces made available separately as an upgrade for those of us who own the original trailers. It looks like the new variation won't need to be folded over & blocking the cargo area when the trailer is all closed up.
