    Which Optimus Prime toy had the best trailer?

    This was most aimed at G1 Prime so which toy did G1 Prime's trailer the best?

    But if there was a trailer from some other Prime that's just too awesome to keep to yourself...then let it be said here also.

    Probably the closest to the original is MP4, then MP10. MP4 has no roller but is damn close to G1 other than that.

    MP-10, to me, does a great job of taking the classic trailer and upgrading the detail. Plus, a nice Roller is included unlike the previous MP trailer. I think he looks cool standing in front of it as a repair bay, while some of the other Prime's base modes aren't very cool at all to me.

    I think Powermaster Prime's is the best simply for the large robot combination, but it's not the best looking as a trailer. At least the God Ginrai/PMPrime reissue version doesn't have hands on top of it, though.

    Armada Prime's is interesting because of the automatic transformation, even if the results are kind of a mess.

    I'm going to call Energon Prime's trailer the worst because it is a rhombus and the drones slide right out of it constantly.

    Are we not allowed to choose G1 Prime? If we are, that's my choice.

    The G3 trailer for Classics. That is a thing of high quality beauty.

    G1 or any one that base off of it like the masterpiece ones. Don't care for the dotm deluxe trailer.

    Is not much to look at, but I always liked the Armada trailer just because it worked by remote control... Look Ma, no hands!!

    Favorite trailer though is still G1, the one that started it all.

    I really like the G3 trailer also. It has a lot going for it.

    I don't get it, there's only two official versions of the G1 Trailer that I've seen and one of them actually IS the G1 Trailer. The other one is Moth Man Prime from DotM.

    Expanding to all Trailers I think the best one is RID. G1 mostly just disappeared and rarely ever did anything. Armada transforms into pants. Energon just holds the stuff that Optimus actually uses. Cybertron's is pretty good but mostly just there to add two giant guns to him and I guess make him fly which is cool. The movie trailer makes him look like a moth and is not at all screen accurate. RID is really the only trailer that actually seems useful not to mention it's also the only trailer that if you take it off in vehicle mode Optimus is useless without it. He only has 2 tires on the cab unlike the 6 that all the other Optimus' have.

    MP-10, and a close second is G3. I just wish that someone had made some computers, etc to put over those pegs that the weapons came on on the G3 trailer. MP-10 is just outstanding though, molded great, good detail. Just wish there were some missles on the little arm thing in the trailer and a spring loaded thing for Rollar.

    Eeeeeeh.

    G3 I think wins this.

    Battle Tanker is awesome too though, especially with the upgrade parts to make Deluxe Laser Prime into a Voyager...

    I also have a soft spot for Armada Prime self transforming trailer... I liked its chunkiness.

    THS-02.

    Complete storage for all the accessories, auto-transforming elements in base mode, first trailer with a ramp that isn't made out of teh trailer doors, handles for Optimus to use the gun platform in his trailer, a roller with articulated axels along with his hose and nozzle thing, roller can carry Optimus' gun, and the trailer can even store a jetpack.

    Nothing is as feature-packed as that. It also introduced a bunch of elements that have been seen in trailers since.

    I love powermaster prime, I got him brand new back in the day. However, it's not a very good trailer. The original trailer is my favourite really, I love the strange accessories, stickers and the Roller launcher. I guess that MP04 is almost as good, but lacks that quirkiness of the original.
    As far as ultimate Optimus goes, all the official pics have it mis-transformed. It's supposed to have the wings down, like jetwing prime. If they had done the pics better, I think it would have made more sense.

    Armada Prime in the Powerlinx colors. You can put Overload on top of that base mode or fill it with minicons.
