Just wondering which classics optimus trialer to go for and what others think fansproject or bts
I've heard nothing but bad about the BTS one.
Also, I have the Fansproject G3 trailer, it's thoroughly awesome.
^ This! I watched many reviews of both trailers back when they were first coming out. BTS just didn't look very good at all. The G3 trailer is VERY nicely done. As with every other Fansproject product I've bought, I'm VERY happy with the G3 trailer.
EDIT: The BTS trailer looks confused with it's overly angular front end and more boxy square rear end. The design just doesn't flow at all.
I love the FP version. It looks awesome and I got it for $52.
G3 all the way, add the reprolabels set to it and never look back.
As an added bonus, the Fansproject G3 trailer also comes with a bunch of accessories for other Classics figures.
Hands down G3. I've heard about a lot of QC problems with the BTS
I went with the BTS trailer. I like it, and it's shape matches Classics Optimus' 'futuristic' design. I don't have any QC issues with mine, in fact this thread is the first time I've heard anything about QC problems with it. The G3 looks great (it is a FP product after all) but It doesn't match aestetically IMO.
I just picked up a G3 trailer and i have to say im also very impressed with it. The extra weapons are a great value to it as well as the *cloaking* mode for the trailer. If you have a City Commander armor it also has an attachment for a god ginrai style hookup so prime can pull both trailers!
No argument here. The G3 is the best I've seen and I have one as well. So go with that if you can.
G3 all the way!
Plus, you have a nice little spot for a Classics of Henkei OP in the box for a nice MIB display.
G3. I'm very happy with mine, and so will you.
G3, no question. Awesome trailer, awesome roller, plus additional weapons for Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Mirage, Hound, and Grimlock. Only downside in my eyes is that you got all those weapons but no Ion Cannon for Prime.
In all fairness though, I never picked up the BTS trailer as I planned (the Nemesis version). So my opinion is very biased.
g3 all the way, don't like the bts one, and seeing all the reviews that the platform couldn't hold a deluxe, passed on it
i had a similar conundrum last week. Went with G3. Robot Kingdom had it marked down to $49. win.
I have both trailers and the Fansproject G3 trailer is by far the better of the two.
I also have both and the G3 is far better than the BTS. Both sets come with additional weapons but the G3 weapons are of a higher quality and are chromed where as the BTS weapons are just black.
Having said that, I want to stress that the BTS trailer is good and I do like it. The G3 is mainly better because of its higher quality of engineering and its "cloak". If you like the aesthetic of the BTS then it is a fun toy with good play value in base mode. The base mode is actually more of a base than the G3 that is more like a fitting station for the Powered Commander.
The Fansproject G3 trailer is really cool. It's especially cool if you get it on sale, as both TFSource (where I got mine) and BBTS have had them for around $55-60
its a landslide for G3 trailer. I believe Polenus did a review on comparing the two.
