    OK, I ordered the 20th MP Prime trailer from BBTS.com and I would like to get some ideas of what I might use to make a MP Roller. I have been tossing around the idea of using the wheel base from Strika, but I cant get past what else I could use. Not to mention the wheels don't really look like Rollers. :banghead: 

    Help and comments appreciated.

    At Toys'R'Us, there are these R/C cars called Super Slicks. They are by Fast Lane, which is the TRU in-house brand, so they shouldn't be TOO exspensive. The neat thing about them is that they are customizable to an extent, in that you get a basic remote control car body, that you then clip a real car shell onto. I've got one that I'm planning to make a Roller shell for... it's the perfect size for MP Prime. The only drawback is the fact that you need to 'bash a third set of wheels onto it.

    I always thought a Cybertron Clocker would make a good roller update WITH and alt mode.

    I really like that. Seeing it colored clinches it.

    I'm currently working on a MP trailer, and I threw together a little Roller to go with it.

    I may end up doing another one at some point, but for the time being, this'll do.

    It's an old Tootsie Toy camper/van that I bought at Goodwill for 25 cents! :) 

    I sanded all the atrocious red paint and gaudy 70s stickers off of it, painted it with the metal the same textured grey I'm using for the trailer, then painted the plastic with the Krylon plastic spray paint I'm using for the plastic details on the trailer.

    He'll do for now. Scale's about right, if nothing else!

    I'm thinking a little red siren and a few autobot symbols might help as well.

    yeah too big. Works great though.
    That does give me another idea though. Perhaps I will pick up a spare tank Hot-Shot when he comes out.
