    Ok, so to the people who pre-ordered the City Commander trailer set. After you get it open, what are you gonna do with it first? Put it in trailer mode? Attach it in bot mode? and then what? I plan to see what it looks like in trailer mode, switch it to bot mode and then try out some posing...

    Pretty much the same here, depending on how it's packaged. :D 

    Also wanting to shoot a review for it once I get the hang of how it works.

    I'm gonna try it out with the truck for about 15 seconds, then transform it into armor and never change it back.

    Yeah, pretty much.

    I got an extra UM from a friend who didn't want it anymore (back when they were plentiful in stores), which I dismantled to repaint into the Dreamwave colors (teal mouthplate, white legs).

    I got to thinking, and decided to reassemble it, so I could have one in armor, and one without (my UM has a blue mouthplate & red eyes).

    I plan to put it in trailer mode and set to work figuring out how to make it a better trailer.

    I'll take it out of the package, realize that I can't deal with it right now, and get back to it a few days later.

    When I first get the set, wait, I didn't pre-order it.
    I might get it later when I can deal with it, money is just too tight now.

    The re-release of MP-02 caused me to cancel my armor order. : \

    My guess is that it'll be on display with the classics in armor mode for some time.

    Basically gonna take some detailed photos of him in both modes, then probably display him on my shelf in his armor duking it out with Energon Galvatron.

    Haha... well, i do pick them up and transform them back and forth on occasion. But even when i do transform them, i always keep them in robot mode when i put it back on display.

    As for my UM, will definitely be doing some photoshoots of him versus Devastator. I'm guessing they should be around the same size, and its nice to see a classics Autobot head to head with Devastator, even if he isn't a combiner.

    Now to just expand the Decepticon roster...
