    Hello fellow fans.
    When the lists first started popping up, there was a listing for deluxe prime, and then voyager prime w/trailer.

    Now we have voyager prime solicited w/out trailer.

    Don's leaked drawing said deluxe.

    What if hasbro is just testing the waters w/the voyager prime w/out trailer, then releases voyager prime w/trailer as an ultra size class($39.99).

    Would you buy it?

    *I was wondering, what if an "energon megatron switcheroo occurred?" As in the toy was originally developed as a deluxe, but scaled/sized up in order to fit another size class? Then again if this had happened, and if the original prime was a deluxe, he probably would have looked short and a lot smaller than megatron. I assume hasbro wanted both leaders in equal size at this point in order to balance out(Note in recent years, both have never really been the same size in their regular modes)*

    Well of course I'd buy it with a trailer for 40 bux. I've paid more before for Primes that don't look nearly as good, so I don't see why not.

    It would depend on the trailer. If it transforms into some kind of base/combat deck, I'd probably be inclined to buy it. If it's just a box for Voyager Prime to tow around, probably not.

    I don't know. Trailers are cool, but mostly all they do is sit around and gather dust.

    No - what's the point? The G1 trailer is boring. It's a box. It's just going to gather dust on MY shelf.

    Obviously, everyone's entitled to their own opinion.

    Quoted for fact. I don't think anyone is going to refuse Optimus just because of no trailer.

    ^ same here. I've only bought one Prime without a trailer; Armada bendy Prime, and that's only because I wanted a new minicon.

    It all depends on how good the trailer was. It would have to include Roller, and it would have to include the same features the original had, launcher, repair drone, etc. Maybe if Roller transformed, or if it was big enough to hold Classics Hot Rod. I wouldn't mind seeing the original redone to be more modern, so long as it did more than the original did for that price.

    So you don't buy these things for their quality, just for their accessories?

    Depends on how kick-ass the trailer is.

    I'm getting the figure either way, trailer or no trailer.

    Same here. I've never really worried about trailers unless they combine with Prime, heh. Though if one ws offered I'd get it unless I already had the other one.

    Everyone's entitled to their own view, though.

    I think if Hasbro relased the toy without a trailer, then released the mold again with a trailer, there'd be a lot of disgruntled fans.

    Certainly, I for one would feel like my brand loyalty was abused.

    Probably true. Generally, I don't get much out of the trailers, especially non-combining ones, so no trailer is no big loss at all for me. If they offered a version with, it would depend on how kickass it is like others have said.

    I have not the slightest intention to buy that MP-04 "trailerful" Convoy, for example.

    I would if there was an option to just buy the trailer since I'd already have the cab, just like for the MP :p
