TF Prime: Optimus Never gets a trailer

I need to stop picking up figures because then I add new projects. The curse of Optimus is back. I just got a TFP Optimus RID figure andů no trailer. *sad face*

I have not been actively watching TFP so maybe someone can help me out here. Do they show the trailer in more than one episode? I'm trying to figure out what to have it do other than explode because, well, that's hard to model. What I'm thinking is to give it some G1 love and have it stand on end and split open. Other than that, it's a box. But darnit, it's Optimus's box so he should have it. I'm just glad the figure has a trailer hitch.

I'm open to suggestions, so hit me!

The actual Prime Apex armour is just a big fatsuit basically. (and I'm not exaggerating, it really is) I think he just means it'd be cool if you made your own design.

To answer your question about when Optimus used the trailer in Prime, he used it in Convoy and Partners.

How are you planning on making this a physical object? Because if you are panning on using Shapeways or have some way to buy this then I would be tempted... as long as it works for FE Optimus.

Ah I see. I just want to have a trailer for display, really.

OK cool, thank you. Yup, Shapeways all day long for the moment. I do not have nor have access to an FE Optimus.

The RID figure has a 29mm measurement to the top of OP's trailer hitch, and the trailer hitch hole is 5mm. If you or anyone else can supply measurements I'll see if it's possible to make it work for both.

OK here is a rough layout of what I'm thinking the trailer will do. Still a lot of details to work out but I'm happy with where this is going, especially after two days.

Currently the overall dimensions of the trailer are 62mm wide, 100mm high, 276mm long.
