    I just thought how cool it would be If Prime even If it is just one short seen of him pulling a trailer behind him in TF3 for a little "G1 nod". I would like to see him with a trailer more then a shot or two and maybe combine with it or turn into a base or something, but it would make me happy If they do it for a few moments! Would you like Prime with a trailer?

    Only if it serves a purpose. If it's just a shot of him pulling a trailer for G1 fanwank, no.

    There would have to be a reason for it. Perhaps like a repair center or a weapons depot. But just to have and thats it, no.

    Needs to have a legitimate, purposeful, explained, non-Bay reason for being there.

    Agreed.

    I think we kinda missed out on the trailer when Optimus combined with Jetfire instead of the trailer.

    how about he uses it to move other autobots or something? maybe a nest crew, sorta like how they did with the Arcee girls in the movie. only prime pulls it insteadof a human truck

    I went for maybe. And I shall now explain: This Prime has an iconic visual and simply doesn't require the trailer to be complete. However, if there were a decent reason for him having a trailer then I could deal with it. Transforming NEST battle base pulled by Optimus would do.

    Absolutely. And for me, there doesn't "need" to be a purpose; we're not curing cancer here, we're just watching a sci-fi flick. Although, I don't think coming up with a reason for a tractor trailer to actually be pulling a trailer would be very difficult. I'd love to see him with a trailer even if it's just a quick driving shot with no explanation. There were robot testicles in RoTF... does this robot actually mate? Who cares. I still liked the movie.

    Yes. and he should combine with it.

    Here's why: it gives the perfect reason to redo what is already a perfect leader mold. The overall figure would be about the same size, but naturally it'd be smaller scale. I imagine the cab would be around deluxe size, which would suit me fine, because then we'd finally have an Optimus roughly in scale with TF1 Bonecrusher (which they're never gonna redo) and Blackout.

    Here's how: Motormaster should be in TF3. After Prime defeats him, he hooks up the trailer.

    Powermaster Prime is awesome, so I say YES for combining trailer.

    Maybe a similar robot mode to Jetfire combination but of course with trailer colors and details.

    Yes, and I think of two ways of how it should be explained:

    1. Have him pull a trailer carrying some of the Autobots.

    2. Explain that the parts of Jetfire were rebuilt into a transforming trailer which Optimus can combine with when needed.

    Don't really care either way, it'd be cool though. I'd prefer it be a weapons base rather than something he can combine with.

    Maybe just have it as a random trailer left after a lost battle that Optimus uses to transport injured Autobots to a NEST pick-up site. Perhaps the truck for that trailer is smashed and on its side and Optimus rights the trailer and loads his troops into it before he hooks up and drives to meet a NEST aircraft. One scene use, decent reason for it to be used, nice nod to fans.

    I voted yes, but more of Soundwave would be nice too.
