    Well that's the first time I've ever seen this piece but it looks quite nice.

    I can't answer about quality or robustness but in terms of looks its not bad

    Looks like a modified version of TRU Japan's Battle Shield Optimus Prime pre-order bonus.

    Isnt that one made of cardboard? This one appears to be styrene and the wheels look like they actually roll.

    The design looks good, but the material looks cheap. Maybe it is just the photos though.

    Nice, another trailer that is way taller than it should be compared to the cab.

    I bought this over the summer. Great display piece. All hand crafted parts. Has a trailer stand also. Pull down ramp that could fit TFP Ratchet an another vehicle with no problem. I think I paid about $70.00. ( kinda steep )

    No trailers for either Prime Optimus mold yet. People have adapted various other trailers to work (Ultimate Optimus or Trilogy Optimus, I forget. I think someone has used a G3 trailer for it as well) but there's nothing out there that's exactly right and hitches up with no monkeybusiness.

    Maybe but I have a screenshot of Prime pulling his trailer from the ep "Convoy" as my screensaver and this one is dead on to the show art, looks AND size to the cab.

    I really love how this looks, and I'm OK spending $50 on it, as long as I know the material is good and it wont fall apart on me.

    Yeah, it's accurate, granted. This has just been driving me nuts lately, all the trailers for Primes that are wider and way taller than the cab with the wind deflector on top. Real trailers almost never do that, because it defeats the entire purpose of the wind deflector.

    Cyclonus79 sent me a bunch of pictures this past summer of the one he bought. It looks really cool. If I can snag a FE Prime at TRU I might nab one of these.

    Can we get him on here to give us his thoughts on the trailer? A mini-review of sorts. I'd really like to know what it's made of and if it's sturdy.
    Thanks
