    In G1 Transformers, does anyone know what is with Prime? When he's in his Alt-mode, the trailer is there. But when he changes, the trailer goes Poof! and dissapers... Is it part of Prime, or is it just dissapering in to thin air?

    He doesn't use it in his transformation. It's his "base". It's like a mobile command center. It must just disappear because it must take too long to animate it in a scene just featuring Optimus.

    It just disapears. Hundreds of plot holes and animation errors in G1. Youll find shit loads of them if you watch them all. but over all a great show. :)

    It's a running gag/animation error. After the first episode, the trailer was pretty useless, so it just disappeared and was left aside until Optimus changed into vehicle mode. Maybe it gets automatically send into a subspace dimension, and then it reappears upon Primes transformation into vehicle mode.

    There are plenty of theories...
    but it all comes down to sloppy animation.

    Have you heard? It's made of disappearium. It's quite an abundant substance, it's just very hard to find. :p 

    In all seriousness, this is actually why I never took a huge liking to the trailer. I kinda sorta give Armada Prime credit for actually USING it for something other than the sake of a semi truck towing a trailer (possibly the same goes for Optimus in DOTM).

    Let's put it like this...Optimus is the robotic Richard Gere...and the trailer is like Richard Gere's hamster.

    :lol  That was a pretty good one..

    Never been a trailer fan either..it did come in handy a time or two in G1 and Armada..but even in TFA it usually just rolled away to some random corner when Prime would transform to robot mode..guess it's always there should he need it!! :thumb

    I'd like for Prime to have a trailer if it went on him like a supersuit - which is gonna happen anyway in DOTM. But I'd like for the trailer to transform into a small jetpack, like Animated Wingblade Prime - so it doesn't take up a lotta room, but still is sleek and gets the job done.

    To have a geek explanation ... I think it's all apart of some "force" type power they all have. Prime's truck disappearing is the same technology Megatron and Soundwave have when they change size, or where they get their weapons from...

    Thanks y'all. I did notice the size thing too. Soundwave for instance giant robot, to a puny little cassete player?!?!:confused:  It's messed up!!!
