    I believe that would be Armada Prime's Trailer.

    The trailer is from Armada Optimus Primem,it becomes his legs for super mode.
    EDIT: ~insert name~ JUST beat me to the answer. You and your damned timing you :p 
    Oh also,you shouldn't manually transform it,it will break. It actually recieves a wireless signal from the Optimus prime figure once you transform him,starting a fully automatic transformation for the trailer.

    Hmmm, Maybe I just got lucky. ;) 

    Just first glances, I've always thought of some sort of a boat out of his trailer. Maybe I'm crazy, but that's what I always saw when I was younger.

    Sweet find I also have this trailer and Optimus. I plan on using it for my Classics Optimus Prime kitbash I have planned.

    I going to see If I can gut the electronics out of the Armada Optimus figure so I just have to press the button to get the trailer to change instead of having to transform the figure.

    Y'wot? You mean you intend to electronically reconfigure the prime fig so the button on the cab roof transforms the trailer? How do you intend to do that - are you an experience remote control programmer? :p

    No I'm not but it should be as simple as just cautiously removing the electronics and .......yeah maybe I should just leave well enough alone!!!:lol  I was looking at it today and I decided to re think my plan. And I didn't know you could just press the button on top of the cab, I always thought it was the hidden button in the shoulder that triggered it.:poke

    No, the button on the cab doesn't do it, and I don't think the shoulder one does either - they're both for light and sound effects. The one on the shoulder lights his right hand up when he's holding his gun so the barrel illuminates. The roof one is for when he's combined with his trailer in robot mode and activates a sound effect therem, as I recall.

    That's why I was confused; I don't think there's an actual button to press to activate the trailer signals; I may be on a wrong'un, though.

    [edit]

    I've just put batteries in, for the first time in ages. There's actually two hemispherical white buttons on the underside of the cab, both of which are either pressed or released during transformation.
    There's one just inside the robot's right shoulder, which is released when you open out the robot arms; this converts the trailer to base mode; when pressed it turns it back to the trailer.
    And there's another just inside the waist (behind the left leg), which is relased when you transform the cab to torso mode (with the leg becoming the left arm. When the button is released, the trailer converts into the legs of the super mode.

    Little tip, though, don't try to convert between base and super modes without going to vehicle mode first; the trailer doesn't like it much and tries to preform bigger movements than it needs to, which can put strain on the ratchets (although as I've said, I've been transforming mine manually for about five years, and after just reinstalling the batteries, it's working fine).
