    He most likely it's going to have the trailer. I mean, dinobot even got unnecessary bases and stands, why optimus wouldn't get something similar?.

    I just hope if they do the battle damage chest swap they make it look seamless.

    I do like MP Megatron, but you can tell it is just a hunk of plastic hanging off the front of him.

    No, but I would instantly leave the restaurant and then go to another that prepares the exact same dishes only larger, better quality/ingredients and cheaper to boot.

    Isn't MP1 the 20th Anniversary Prime? If so, he didn't come with a trailer when originally released in the U.S.

    No, Takara re-released MP-01 with the trailer as MP-04. Hasbro's domestic version came with it out of the gate.

    MP-04 was something I simply couldn't afford at the time. Such a huge, heavy box. Beautiful package.

    Can you all believe it's been that long since it was released?

    I would like it to have a trailer with more functions than this MP10 has. I know it has to be serie-accurate but I am sure it can have other functions

    I'm sure it will serve as a stand at the very least. And it will be featured on all newer carbot MP boxes showing them coming out :rock 

    Right? They have their dump of a thread for a reason, whet they can all discuss whatever trash they are into. But no, let's just go to the official threads where no one cares about said trash.

    if he is released with trailer it would cost too much dinobot is the first mp dinobot this is their 3 attempt do you believe people who buy mp-01 and mp-10 want another one, they no longer has the boost of the movies, releasing something like that would cost an arm and would be too riskfull , the most obvius thing would be 2 versions why risk the sales if they can release two versions and make both happy, if you want the trailer get it but pay the price, the ones that already got mp-10 and mp-01 got 2 trailers he is in the same scale as mp-10 why risk loosing a great amount of buyers, you could have your trailer in a dx version so both markets are touched and made happy.

    The product hasn’t even been 100% confirmed, and yet people are fretting about price and basically preordering KOs. :lol 

    I’d say that it’s hard to believe, but this fandom has well and truly proven to me that anything is possible.

    It'd be cool if you could use full stops sometimes. It's hard to read sentences that are a paragraph long.

    Has a KO ever used better plastic than the original? Or is your preference just for oversized KOs anyway?


    This metaphor is getting weird.


    MP-10's trailer has some pretty cool functions. The sliding out ramp, the way the side arms lower down when you open them out - it's a pretty classy design. Roller is also cool in that he can tow the trailer, hold Spike, and wield the ion blaster. I'm sure they can come up with even more cool gimmicks for the trailer, though. It'll definitely have storage for all his accessories, and some kind of flight stand integration, that much is a given.

    You're right. I forgot there was the original release packaged in bot mode. I was thinking about the 25th Anniversary (?) toon colored version that came out later.

    Neither did the second release of MP-01. You're thinking of the G1 reissue that had the DVD.

    IIRC, the only difference between the MP-01 releases was that the second had toon colors and the voice stand.

    I remember both versions being shelf+warmers in areas. I picked up the first release for $30 eventually and got several of the 2nd for $10 each.

    Best ever was Armada Unicron marked down to $3.97 at Target.

    No it didn't (Though I believe one of them came with a cardboard version)

    FanToy's first toy was a trailer for MP-01 that was just an upsized G1 trailer
