    I picked up TRU Hotrod/Rodimus and as much as I would love to get the official trailer. I cant see my self spending 1500.00 just so I can get the trailer.

    Humm... this is a good one.

    If you asked me a year ago, I would say, yeah, no brainer.

    The only problem is iGear (most logical company to do this) is busy with a butt load of original stuff. So I am not sure.

    Not gonna happen.

    Rodimus's trailer is unique to one toy.

    At least with Prime there are many versions that can use it thus creating a higher demand.

    There are at least 2 version of Rodimus that we know about. 3 versions if you count US / Japanese.

    considering you can still get mp9 for only 80 bucks over the tru retail there is no way youll get a trailer that size for less than a hundred.also its not just a "box" as many seem to think but it functions in actually making him a PRIME.
    as far as im concerned hes hot rod only and rodimus in name only.
    i just dont see a third party making a trailer for him.

    Nah. The trailer would cost somewhere in the neighbourhood of 100-120 USD, based on the various Igear Prime trailers. Couple that with an already 60 USD toy [at best], you're better off just getting the japanese version.

    Prime did not get a trailer in the US not because it was omitted [first few years, at least] but because it wasn't made until 2-3 years later.

    Question is, why do you want a trailer? I bought MP-04 and I really under utilize that trailer. It sits there with other figures on top of it.

    Not sure if that question was directed to me or not but I figured I would answer it anyway. Unlike MP prime I feel the US version of Hotrod/Rodimus is incomplete. What we go from Hasbro is strictly Hotrod. Yes we can make the Robot form into Rodimus but if we want the Alt mode form for Rodimus then we are SOL...

    Haha, well, I would sell it for how much you can get the iGear Trailer for. You'd be better off getting the trailer for the roller and all.

    If your one of those who have 2 MP figures and pose them in Alt mode and in Bot mode, then get the V1. Even if there is something wrong with it, you won't tell. Most issues are in bot mode.

    If you plan on transforming back and forth. 50% of the time, the trailer is no where anyway. But it depends what you like.

    I had some one tell me the Optimus trailer was a waste. I only came to that conclusion for myself after I got it. Sometimes that needs to happen.
