    that would be pretty cool. i dont gave an mp-44 trailer anymore but if i did that would be a great addition! i like the idea of G1 prime having "minions". i remember when i was a kid there was a period of time in my personal head canon that soundwave was the decepticon leader (well i didn't own a megatron!) and it'd be cool for prime to have his little dudes go up against the tapes. lol. now we just need the trailer to become something more combat useful! haha. perfect effect's jet power revive and the retool are pretty cool ideas actually but going that far may not mesh well with a G1 MP collection.

    I think they could just expand on the repair bay idea that it started out with. Have arms, scanners and welders come out of the sides of the open trailer. Also make a tray that folds out to put all of Ratchet's tools on. But everything would still need to fold out of the way to make room for Roller and the gun platform.

    I got the blue one. Opened it and man do I love it. Haven't had the time to transform it yet, but I am excited.

    I've got blue and, while I love it, there's already paint chipping off the feet. Damn! Then again, it helps to match my OG G1 Prime figure better.

    I wasn't expecting much when I pre-ordered this, so I was very pleasantly surprised when he turned out to be a good figure. He's mostly simple and straightforward, with the exception of the red shoulder panels plugging into both the bottom of alt mode and the tailpipes. As others have said, the shoulder/rear wheel section needs to be gently rotated forward to line up the tabs on the bottom. With the tailpipe section, it helps to do one side at a time; secure the red panel on one side, lower the tailpipe section into place, then tab the 2nd red panel section over it (and also into the bottom tab). The tailpipes also have to be exactly straight out, as they won't fit any other way.

    I contacted TCP and they said they thought this guy would come in latter this week. Must be coming by shipping container. Fanstoys usually gets 3 day notification. Is that because they are air mail?

    Both very nice. I think I'll keep the blue one in bot mode as mini-Prime. Would be nice if there was a spot to plug in the other end of the hose, but I found a crack around back on each to plug things in. Eww, it wasn't as gross as it sounds.

    Now where is my 4th Party MP-44 Trailer?

    There’s a small hole on the inside of the forearm that I plugged the hose into.

    The doors that cover the hands don't click in so I'm going to try placing tiny tiny magnets on them to see if that helps.

    If that goes well maybe I'll try it with the wheels too because they don't click in anywhere either, and I'm not a fan of the 6 wheel independent suspension it has going on

    Could also try adding floor polish (or another tightening agent) to the swivel points, make the wheels and panels sit still more

    I was really torn over which one to get, as both colours look great. The G1 Roller my brother had was the blue one, but I went with the grey version in the end, as I knew that if I got the blue one and posed him with Prime (as pictured in the quote), I'd only ever see this:

    Also, one of the wrist flaps on mine has come really loose already. Anyone got any tips on how to tighten it back up?

    I can’t unsee Diaclone Twin Twist with the blue one, but ordered it anyway because the silver one was sold out on ShowZ, lol. :p 

    If silver ever restocks I’ll probably get it.

    Undecided on the IDW colors one.

    Got this guy in last week (blue) and I love it. This is well worth the money, I can't believe how solid, how good this figure is for the money. Hasbro has budgets and shareholders, I get that, but they should still be ashamed of themselves. Inexcusable that a no-name, renting a factory for a small run, can make a better figure across the board. Packaging included.

    Absolutely shameful and inexcusable. Hasbro, this is one of those times you can GFY.

    I can't get over the build quality, the articulation, the paint apps, the plastic quality...it's insane for this price. This also doesn't excuse XTB/KFC/SND for their "The One" Prime. No excuse for that being $80.00 and they can GFT as well.
