    New trailer for ROTF/DOTM Leader Optimus Prime. Already out. Similar to the UFO version, maybe not as good looking, but still decent and better than just an empty rolling box.

    Very interesting. This came out of no where. However, it does not look nearly as good as the UFO one. Nice find!

    Yeah, to me, this one is to the UFO trailer what the BTS trailer was to the G3 trailer. I gave G3 + DIA Commander to Henkei Prime and BTS to Classics. I guess I'll be giving this to Buster Prime #1 (mouth version) and the UFO one to Buster Prime #2 (faceplate version).

    For info, a source link would be really useful (read: saves me doing a ton of legwork on something I'm indifferent about) for posting news stories.

    Looks a nice set, and great if that's what you want to finish up the look of your DotM Prime, but I don't know, I prefer the look of the UFO one, and I was never big on trailers for Primes that didn't turn into armour anyway.

    Ah, should have guessed (was almost there, googled another auction but that one used images lifted from ACToys)

    Cheers dude, much appreciated.

    I think this would have been more popular if this came out last summer. I would have been interested. But with TF4 coming out with new molds, I think people are going to skip this and save up for TF4 figures...I could be wrong...

    This is cool and all, but I'm still waiting for someone to build 3rd party versions of some of that concept armor from DOTM...

    Prime looks like he's wearing Megatron. :)

    Is this a WIP? Because it's... really not good. :( 

    He does! If someone tries it I hope they make the panels more geometric instead or curved and pointy.

    This is already for sale without preoeder? Very surprising for the extra option on top of the UFO offering. I am intrigued.

    The first one looks like bone armor. Weird design, that. The second definitely has Beast Hunters Optimus written all over it. I'm certain the TF Prime designers recycled parts of it for the show.

    That said, this trailer looks OK as a trailer but it's not very accurate in armory mode. Seems pretty lazy, design-wise. Sticking with UFO for now.

    Although not a complete fail, since it at least tries to mimic the look of the trailer as weapons cache' from the movie, major demerits for not getting the shape right. Not circular enough and at it's sure to be exorbitant price it's a pass.

    Agreed. UFO is still the way to go. This just looks lazy and not worth the cost. Bad timing for this attempt.

    I know I'm probably in the minority but I would actually buy a trailer that is a plain, empty plastic box (like voyager DOTM Prime has). For display purposes only, yet cheap enough.

    I really don't want to spend so much money on gimmicky trailer that would look empty if I don't shell out even more money to fill it with Dr. Wu and similar other gear. It just adds up to the final cost of the complete display.

    Looks decent but UFO's looks better.
