    Ever since I got my first Optimus Prime back in the mists of time, I always thought that Hasbro should have made more trailers for him. Just to expand his playability if for no other reason.

    For example, I thought they should have made a Car Carrier for Prime like Ultra Magnus'. It's a no brainer repaint that I'm surprised they've yet to do. (tho I'd want a new sculpted head for the super mode) Yeah we've gotten repaint's out the but for both toys (OP and UM) but the trailers have always just be the same mold with different paint.

    Then came the New Pepsi Convoy. Now Prime has a Flatbed (???) he can use to haul big stuff that won't fit in his old box trailer. It's a nice of pace, but it doesn't do anything. Then we just hear this week of a Convoy that comes with a new Box Trailer that does something new... Transform into a MP3 player docking station w/speakers. As an added bonus, he comes with a newly resculpted head.

    Now this begs the question, since we're seeing an uprise in the brand's popularity, what other trailers could they (HasTakTomy) make to sell Prime.

    Here's a few I'd like to see...

    1) An Ultra Magnus Carrier done up in a new color and packaged as Optimus Prime.

    2) Another (realistic) Flatbed that includes some big Vehicle/Missile that OP can use/combine with to enhance his mobility and/or Firepower. (for example: Have him come with a Helicopter that would become a flying backpack with missiles, while the flatbed could become a lauchpad)

    3) A Tanker that hides a multi system weapons platform that works with OP. (kinda like the G2 Laser Rod only scaled and better)

    4) A new Box Trailer that opens up diferently into a new kind of com station that would haveany number of potential Liscensor's logo on the trailer.

    What would you guy want?

    A ranch trailer, with a toy donkey included. Just so the box can say 'Hauling Ass Optimus Prime".

    It would be neat to have a trailer that converts into any number of trailer types.

    You could start with a box trailer where the panels collapse in such a way as to make a car carrier and then, from there those pieces could fold down again to make flat bed. With a little more engineering, you could probably fashion a tanker or grain hopper out of the box trailer mode.

    I've done some quick and dirty sketches and it's feasable.

    Actually, I always thought it'd be neat if his trailer transformed into a backup Autobot. Like, if the original '84 trailer turned into God Bomber or something, that'd be neat.

    I hate the old "Optimus prime combines with his trailer" gimmick, if they do that I will surley blow my brains out.
