    The mechtech gun for OP looks good, for some reason the trailer looks like cheap KO plastic. I don't know, I guess I'm use to my FP Trailer which is quality.

    The Takara repaint of OP does look better than the Hasbro release one with the "carbon fiber" look, but for $70 bucks I don't think it's worth it, I wouldn't pay more than $40 on this item..

    Nice review as always Peaugh!

    Another great review that is most likely going to cost me some money. I am on the fence about this figure and I can't quite decide whether or not to spend the money, but reviews like this don't help me save any money.

    Oddly enough, I'd rather have this for the prime that the trailer. The trailer just seems like an empty box with a bunch of holes to store guns, unfortunately. I love Prime's new gun. Looks a lot like the gun he used when they were in the warehouse in RotF.

    Hey Peaugh,

    Have you tried this trailer out with the Classics Prime? I'm tempted to get this for the trailer and then sell the Prime, as I want a trailer for my Classics Prime.

    If the head on 2010 Unicron can get a U.S. release, so can this.

    Takara are too cheap to absorb the cost of the trailer all by themselves.

    There's no release planned for the 2010 version of Unicron. What are you talking about?

    Is it compatible with Battle Blades Prime?

    Have been seeing him around for the past two weeks as he's widely sold at toy stores over here, yet I never gave two hoots about picking him up since I already have Habro's Voyager. Being a self-proclaimed Prime fanatic, this review has really left me on the fence. It is a bummer because I am rather tight this month saving for the Takara Jetwing.
