Having received my Masterpiece Rodimus Prime ver. 2 in the mail this week, I had two things I wanted to verify about the figure very quickly. The first was if the quality control is up to standard this time - and I'm pleased to say he holds together quite well - and the second is if the trailer is really worth the extra expense. After playing around with it for a while, I can safely reply with a resounding "YES!" Even though Masterpiece figures are clearly meant to be elaborate collector's items, I found that the way the trailer splits open and the turret pops up to be very similar to the G1 trailers. That's something that reminded me that this is ultimately a toy and should be treated as such. It's simple and fun to use, and it gives Rodimus Prime a sort of pedestal on which to pose him. I can't imagine Roddy without it. Of course, there are those who dismiss the trailer as just a "big, plastic box" and opt for the cheaper Hasbro release. That made me think about what your feelings are on trailers in general. They seem to be a staple of Transformers commanders, but they're often ignored as just a needless expense. Some fans only go for trailers that transform into a power armour, but I find that even battle station trailers like Scourge and Thunder Clash to be essential to the characters. What do you think about trailers?
