    So does OP in DOTM combine with his trailer? Curious to know cause I heard someone talking over at work that his trailer apparently
    blows up
    ?

    In the Chernobyl scene, the Driller knocks Optimus aside and his trailer falls off, immediately transforming into this ring-like weapon platform. Optimus runs through it and grabs a sword and shield.

    We see him with his trailer driving down a Chicago road when the Driller, once again, emerges from the ground and knocks him over. Optimus says something like "I need my trailer!". Few scenes after that, he's already got his Jetwings.

    That's about it for the trailer... not sure if it blew up.

    Gee that kinda sucks, so
    Ultimate OP
    is kinda a waste of a toy since it doesn't actually happen in the movie?

    The last I believe we saw of the trailer was it getting flipped over by the Driller. Optimus said he needed to get to it, though it was never shown. He just shows up later rocking his jet wings.

    It sorta does. It's a truck and trailer that transformers into an armored up Optimus Prime with jet thrusters and wings. It's not film accurate, but it does give kids an Optimus toy with a trailer.

    You mean us a trailer? :p 

    Yeah but heck why didn't Hasbro just package the Japanese exclusive and be done with that? Releasing Ultimate OP is weird IMO, but I still wanna get it at the Wal-Mart price though.

    And I was expecting OP to shoot at least either Megs or Sentinel with that huge gun of his.

    because it would cost more than what many reasonable parents would want to spend on one toy.

    i DO wish they woulda showed the trailer transforming into the jetpack

    there's an in-game cutscene in the DOTM game where the trailer transforms on and around Optimus into the jetpack and it is epic. i soooo wish i coulda saw that in the movie

    I was pretty surprised they didn't have a big "combining with his trailer" scene in the CHicago sequence: All the stuff they could have potentially cut, and they (most likely) cut that?

    (unless maybe it didn't look good enough/was deemed to expensive?)

    Yeah I was expecting something like that too ala Jetfire-style, but he just came flying in.
