    I did a search and haven't seen any significant discussion about this, let alone mention of it at all.

    Does anyone think that Prime's trailer will appear? It wouldn't seem complete without it and all the pictures that have shown up so far show him sans-trailer. Given the complicity of the transforming, I think his trailer would be an awesome addition. Without flames, of course. I didn't think Prime was fast and furious.

    Nope. Hasn't shown up so far.

    Doubt Prime will show up with a trailer.

    The more Prime toys I can buy without having some space-killing brick of a trailer to stash in the closet, the better :)  At least RID and Armada Prime could combine though.

    No mass shifting, or other G1 tricks are in the movie. Unless the trailer is part of Prime's transformation (which it isn't) then it won't be in the movie.

    Not necessarily. He may have the trailer before revealing the robot mode, like in the road working for some truck driver... or maybe the Autobots get together with humans, load a trailer full of explosives that Prime would charge against Megatron and get out of the way on the last minute or something...

    I think the makers of the movie just didn't want to deal with Prime's magic disappearing, reappearing trailer and trying to show where it went all the time. Which I can understand.

    Though it would’ve been kind of funny if they tossed in some in-joke about the trailer for the fans.


    Some Autobot, “Hey Prime, where’d your trailer go?”

    Prime, “I…I though I left it right here. Oh, there it is.”

    *Trailer sitting in a parking lot a block away with no explanation as to how it got there.*

    *rembers leaked script*
    I don't think it'll spoil anything but...
    Spoiler, the "link" is the text

    With the "you can look under the hood" designs, It'd be difficult to make the trailer useful in the transformation. It could turn into more armor... but for it to to be believable to anyone that its a trailer, you'd have to have its interior empty. Another option would be to have it filled with boxes, but who wants optimus to have parts made out of cardboard. Last option is to have blatent robot parts inside the trailor but then it clashes with the rest of the design.

    He could, of course, have a regular trailer that's not part of his design at some point that in some way homages his original trailer, then, during the course of the movie, he ditches it altogether. I'm sure we might get to see some sort of homage in that department.

    Na optimus is to sweet to be carrying around a trailer, not only blocky it would slow him down greatly, and he wouldnt need it in the first place because he wouldnt use it for a dam thing lol!!!!!

    Put me in with the 'No Trailer' crowd. I'd LIKE for him to have a trailer (With a huge Autobot emblem) for nostalgia purposes, but doubt they could make it work with their design criteria. I hope they fit in a trailer anyways though, even if it's not a transforming trailer.

    I say give him a trailer when he first shows up, and then have him throw it at a guy right after the first time he transforms.

    Prime runs in on a battle between Megatron and Bumblebee and uses his trailor as a chair!:)

    What haven't read the leaked script? Prime runs in hits Megatron with the trailor while Joey Styles screams Ohhhh Myyy Gaawwddd!!! and all the onlooking Autobots start chanting E-C-Dub!
