    Oh I want this. I got the CJ kit (just waiting for a replacement Classics CJ to replace the one I sold before I knew about said kit). The CJ kit is of great quality, so I'm really psyched for this one and the rumored Apex kit.

    where are you people getting them from? seriously! I e-mailed tfclub and they never responded. I hate it when people come on here and brag about all this sweet crap they got for cheaper prices but always neglect to mention where they got it from.

    Easy pass. You thought the Cliffjumper upgrade kit was expensive? Wait until this hits eBay.

    Sad, but true. I think in general the great trailers out of 20+ years of Transformer's products can be counted with one hand.

    Hey Victorysabre! Where did you get that CJ kit? From a chinese auction site?

    That is awesome. Going to do my best to get my hands on one of those sets forsure. Can't wait to see it in color too, Magnus looks kickass in bot mode.

    But really...where is everyone getting the CJ kit casue I would love to know?

    Sorry all. Didn't mean to make my post seem braggy. My brother in law actually ordered two kits from the guy (one for him and one for me) at about $35 a pop. He just got them last week and I got to pick mine up from him on Wednesday and look at his CJ that he did the head swap on. He says he got the guy's email, sent him a message, and like that they were in business. He did ask to be kept updated on the UM kit, but if what the other reports are saying is true, the UM kit will be much more readily available, so the uber price inflation shouldn't be an issue.

    I second al of that, it would be nice in theory to see an updtated articulated trailer for Op but in practice not many would buy it, especially now that we've had a few years of cab only Primes that work out as better figures at better value.
    I also agree on the rise of integrated trailers, animated Ultra Magnus is going this route and seems like it will be all the better for it.

    I'm curious about this chinese trailer upgrade but for now I'll just wait and see.

    they'll probably learn to read that part before they realize that HasTak couldn't have packed something like this in with a $30-sold-at-$20 set.

    Thanks for the info. IIRC the guy's email address was on the news thread about the CJ Kit.

    I actually e-mail the contact on TFClub and got a respose back today, his reply to me was "hi,let me see how many Cliffjumper Upgrade Kit you need ,Thx."

    Now I'm not sure if he's looking for me to palce bigger order then one or not and I imagine the language gap between or emails might get a little confusing. I am going to response back now and hopefully I cant get a price and have this Upgrade on it's way to me soon.
