    In DOTM, while in Chernobly, Optimus was with his trailer, which turned into a weapon platform upon Shockwave's show-up.

    When the autobots rolled to the space station to take off in Xentium, Optimus was with the trailer at first. But when he and sam were saying good-bye, the trailer dissappeared.

    The autobots turned up again in the later part of the movie, after their "feign-death" by dropping into the Atlantic. Then Optimus said "bring the war to them". The trailer was not seen there.

    When autobots planned to break into the beseiged city, Optimus transformed into truck and the trailer was with him once more. But the trailer was toppled by the driller and seemed not be of use any more.

    Where did Optimus "hide" the trailer after Xentium and before final battle.

    It was stored in the ship.

    He probably left it around the corner when he saved Sam and Epps and said "We will kill them all."

    And he used it to fly after the Driller toppled it over.

    I hope they make a cyberverse trailer that actually has the weapons platform. Not the crapy one they had where it folds out.

    This.

    This. ;) 

    And this.

    It could have always been an error as well, but just because his big-@$$ trailer is not visible when they return to Chicago doesn't mean he doesn't have it. It's not out of the question to assume that it just always happens to be conveniently out of frame either. Same way Obadiah was conveniently not-visible in that establishing wide-shot in Iron Man just before popping out of nowhere (hiding behind the pillar? The couch? Under the coffee table?) to immobilize Tony. Why would he have his trailer chillin' next to him at the launch of the shuttle when he could simply store it somewhere on the Xanthium? Or heck, it might not even have left NASA for all we know. No need to have his trailer out in the middle of the open when it could spoil his "show up out of nowhere to save the day"-sequence.

    "Sam, I'm sorry, but it's ove- Wait a second. Is that Optimus' trailer over there?" *Decepticon ship fires* *kills everyone* *Optimus shows up* "Dammit. The sneak attack was spoiled. Stupid trailer."

    They dropped it off at the dump.

    Luckily Optimus stopped by on the way to Chicago and got it in the nick of time.

    Well of course. They're still inside the trailer. Or they were. After the trailer transformed into the weapons depot the first time they were sort of shredded to bits. :eek:
