    I recently bought a Classics Prime and I was wondering what a good trailer for him was. I'm looking for either the armor upgrade or G1-type trailers. What ever you can recommend to me that's good. Thanks.

    Ideally; G3 trailer and Powered/DIA Commander armor both. If you're only getting one though, I'd look at what else you have. The G3 trailer's potential is maximized if you have the other figures who have new weapons in it, but the Commander armor needs only the Prime to work well with it.

    (Also if you get the G3 trailer; get the reprolabels upgrade for it. I can't say in words just how much better those things make it look.)

    Go with FansProject's G3 Trailer. About $60 on BBTS and TFSource. It's a great piece of work.

    I have the Commander Armor but that's because I hate standard trailers. They serve no purpose in my collection because they don't transform into shit so I don't play with them.

    Death333, you make a good point. Maybe I'll look into the armor.

    DIA Commander

    Meant for Henkei Prime, works fine with Classics when combined though.

    Helluva price drop since I got it anyway...

    I found an auction on eBay for all 4 Fansproject Trailers, and it says the Powered Commander is limited to 500 pieces and was a TFCon 2009 exclusive. I wish I knew this before I started looking for one. I don't want to pay an arm and a leg for one. =/

    I kinda prefer the colors of the Powered Commander armor to the Japanese one. Sure it's cheaper but...

    Well, BBTS has them in stock.

    Here's the Commander armor (though only the D.I.A. version which was specifically for Henkei Prime). If you want the TFCon Powered Commander though, yup you're going to have to pay an arm and a leg.

    And here's the G3 trailer.

    Definitely the G3 trailer. And if you also want the DIA Commander armor, it works WITH the G3 trailer. The G3 trailer has a fold out hitch thing for the DIA/City/Shadow/Powered Cammander armor to attach to.

    G3. The DIA Commander armor isn't even meant for Optimus/Convoy.

    I've been looking into this lately too.

    I just ordered the Fansproject G3 trailer and the sticker set for it from Reprolabels. I'm pumped!

    I went with this one over the commander armor trailer because I like the "updated classic look." The commander armor is cool looking and all, but Prime doesn't look like Prime with that steroid suit on. I think it looks pretty silly as a trailer too. Maybe for Magnus, but not Prime. Just my opinion.

    Best of luck with your trailer decision. I know I read a shit-ton of articles and reviews yesterday.. as I watched the Phillies sweep the Astros.

    ^ Who cares? It makes a great Powermaster Prime.

    It's all down to preference. the DIA commander set works fantastic with Classics Prime. If you don't want the trailer to sit around while in bot mode or if you like the more compact look, go DIA armor as its actually cheaper now. If you want the G1 look and have other classics figures, go G3. I own both, and I personally love the armor more due to its function, but the G3 trailer is also a fantastic piece of work.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either.
