    I recently got my hands on a Classics Optimus and I really want to upgrade him with a trailer. Now In already have the City and Shadow commanders for his repaints, and really don't like the look of the Powered.

    Can anyone recommened another good trailer that go with Classics Prime? and possibly a good weapons set?

    By third party standards, $55 practically seems like a steal.

    Hey It is a steal for me since I paid over $400 for both City and Shadow combined.

    Are there any other trailers for Classics Prime? And Weapons?

    There's the TFC Gear of War 2 set. It comes with a bunch of weapons for more than just Classics Prime though, like Movie Leader and I think Alternity...

    And I can't recall if Venksta ever came out with his weapon upgrade through his Renderform site, but that looked good as well (better than the TFC set).

    ^As Kusanagi posted above, the TFC Toys Gear of War 2 sets provides a nice (more G1 accurate) rifle for Optimus with working LEDs, though I don't know if it's still in stock anywhere online.

    I don't believe Venksta released the weapons for Optimus that were displayed but I think they may still get a release? I don't believe they were officially canceled. Plus he has a sword and shield set that can be used by Optimus and most other Classics figures.

    I have both the BTS and the G3 trailer. The BTS has gone onto my "to sell" pile, the G3 is an intrinsic part of my collection now and Classics Prime, Sideswipe, Mirage and Grimlock look naked without it. A fantastic piece of kit.

    G3 trailer is the way to go, it's also a plus it comes with weapons that go nicely with the henkei/classics characters.

    If you don't mind painting there's some cool stuff on shapeways: axe, am armor, smokestacks, rooftop, swords.
