    Cheaper than the City commander set per trailer.

    I hope this is a misprint:

    "This trailer is being release in Red for Optimus Prime, as well as a Black version for Nemesis prime and others."

    Red? That seems like a ridiculously dumb choice, if true. Hopefully it's wrong, and it will end up the traditional silver/blue.

    Anyhow, these are definitely pricey, but at least you get two trailers for the price. And the repair bay mode actually looks fairly nice.

    I can't believe I'm actually considering getting these.... I literally have an entire cabinet filled with Prime Trailers that I don't have room for (since I usually display my Primes without trailer, in bot mode). And here I'm considering buying two more unofficial ones. Being a collector is like being mentally ill. :p

    I'm hoping somewhere in the translation there was a mistake and it's a trailer for the Red version of Prime.

    Huh.. more trailers for classics figures. Running out of room. May need to build them a storage space for their trailers...

    The title of the item is "Classics Trailer Set - Red & Silver Prime and Black Nemesis Versions"

    I don't see how it holds 1-2 deluxe cars when the 2 shortest deluxe cars (bumblebee and hound) don't fit in all the way without the door open. I suppose if it's open is can hold more but closed it seems like there's a 1 car max. On the positive a base to help with displaying figures is good. I can see it looking pretty sweet when opened up

    $60 is almost definitely a pass though. I'll wait until I get a look at the finished product and all the accessories before I decide

    That was my first reaction as well. I need to learn to read all the info before freaking out.

    Let's see... $60 a piece or $110 for both. Cheaper then City Commander per trailer, but... I don't know if I need a trailer that really doesn't do anything but become a base. I really never use the bases anyways. So... I guess this is a pass for me... but it does look freakin' sweet. Just not something I need I guess. Well, maybe I'll decide once I see some painted images... probably won't get the Nemesis Prime one though.

    I'm a maybe. If I can spare the money, which isn't likely. I've got some time though.

    I was hoping for more, but I'm glad I'm still getting a trailer for Henkei Convoy.

    The repair bay mode does look sweet. Not sure if it's $60 sweet or not though.

    It's nice... Better now that I've seen the base mode. But I'm DEFINITELY skipping the nemesis version (just got Shadow Commander for that!), and need to see final pics of the normal version to determine if Prime needs a new trailer ;) 

    I'd probably just use it to store TFC Battle Rollar in vehicle mode.

    Yaay! Finally something I'm underwhelmed by.

    I might pick up the Prime one, but the paint apps are going to have to transform it (pun intended), Shadow Commander will do me just fine for Nemmy though.

    Very not bad. I like the extra storage bins/closets/whatever. I was hoping the battle platform would look more like the G1 counterpart instead of a more traditional construction crane like it is here, but it's not a deal-breaker. Great job, you crazy add-on making fans you! You're totally getting my money.
