    Wellllllllll, I'm not exactly crazy about it just now. It doesn't even look like the trailer can pivot on UM in vehicle mode, to say nothing of restricting the articulation in robot mode. Still, it's a WIP. It may yet win me over once it's in colour.

    Well, if I can get one for around $100 count me in... but I may have to think twice about it if it goes for the kind of prices that the Cliffjumper upgrade kit commands.

    I like the way the kit looks on him, colored will make it even cooler. Don't quite know about the trailer by itself. Of course I'm a bot guy, rather than a vehicle mode guy!

    This kit looks absolutely AWESOME!!!! The idea of an armored command trailer (ala Universal Soldier, or the one in the Dead series from George Romero) is just plain cool.

    I'm wondering how much a set of the CJ add ons would cost to ship in bulk? And if the people who are looking at said set and can get them for $30 realize that there are enough people on this site willing to shell out for it that they could make a profit? Not counting on much, nobody even wants to link to a site with prices on it at all. Guess I'll be learning Kanji too...

    That's a great idea. I'll give $40 + shipping to the first person that has a CJ upgrade kit in the states that they are willing to sell.

    Yeah, don't really care about the trailer mode, so long as when it's done the 'bot mode looks good, which currently it looks awesome!

    looks good, too bad these guys are crooks, they shill bid on the cliffjumper sets, that's why they were going for so much. They also jipped me on a an ebay auction I won from them.

    It looks really cool but I can't really see shelling out more than like 10 bucks for it when I can spend like 30-40 bucks on a brand new figure.....It's too bad Hasbro doesn't fo these things, they would make a killing!!! Just another thing they aren't doning.

    Hasbro doesn't do this because fans aren't willing to pay much for trailers when they can spend on other figures. That has made trailers expensive to produce (read that as in there's not much profit there), so it seems Hasbro will be dropping them for good.

    The problem is that Hasbro hasn't done that many great trailers over the years. I mean in the past 10 years there has been only two true trailers and they both sucked (Armada and Energon). The Armada one barely worked as a base and turned into crappy brick pants for Prime while the one in Energon was essentially a slanted box. On the other hand the integrated, pseudo trailers have worked quite well (RID and Cybertron).
