    These guys' hands are so full...not sure when they will have the time, but I'm hoping they will release the trailer b/c that should mean more Steel Cores....I'm hoping

    For me, the trailer will bring some fun to the warbot series... I'm thinking a trailer full seated with corers on a road trip with booze...

    Honestly the trailer pics were revealed so long ago and things have def. Been revealed and released since so I'm don't think it's a matter of time crunching since everything has to eventually be scheduled for release. I just hope it's sooner than later!

    Nice!

    The trailer looks cool but I think they'll have a very hard time selling it without doing a new run of SC himself. I'm not very big on trailers that do nothing but transport and open up so I'm hoping their is more to it than that, like it at least can become a set of armor or weapons like the Revolver RnR stuff.

    Well, you never know, after all, FP is the creator of City Commander, Protector, and G3 Trailer, so that's not unheard of. However, if I'm FP and I see all the demand for this guy, I'd be producing more runs.

    I've learned with these guys that just because something appears to be a no-brainer doesn't mean it will ever happen. They could have milked the Protector moulds but still haven't. They are silent as the grave about their future intentions and are obviously playing a very long-game indeed. I would have thought at least a Virus repaint of Steelcore let alone other repaints would have been mooted by now. They haven't.

    That said they don't ever seem to "abandon" something that's been in development so maybe it'll just pop up on FPC in a years time or so. It would need Steelcore to go up with it though.

    Is that a bash or an actual proto shot?

    I really have no plans to get the trailer, if it becomes available. Doesn't fit my fanverse take for the character.

    The trailer stores the cores.

    That is a useful feature... but perhaps an exo-suit armour trailer would work too.

    The only criticism I have with Steelcore is the lack of movable wrists/opening hands and a certain lack of weapon storage points. other than that I like him a great deal still and would still like a trailer for him.

    I find his hands are a bit skinny so they don't always hold weapons well - shame no ones seemingly made him new hands yet.

    - only repaint I personally wanna see is the yellow construction ones from the actual fiction . I'd buy three and out them with yellow giant.

    - I don't think there'd need to be another run of Steelcore for it. Wouldn't hurt but definitely wouldnt be a necessity since so many own it at this point.

    - I like the idea of storing multiple bots but I do hope for some sort of easter egg since the bots have storage in both of their core-r's modes.

    - Speaking of storage, does he have areas to store the blade on either mode?

    I just slide the blade on this back, and it kind of clips in underneath in vehicle mode.

    I would like the trailer to be some sort of upgrade for steel core. I think a neat idea would be if the trailer had a separate transformation as a sort of utility body for any number of cores. Or perhaps some sort of mega weapon utilizing all the cores. Like a giant cannon or something.

    Given FP's experience in M3's trailer, they might apply it on steel core's trailer so we can get a multipurpose partsforming trailer with a sword, seats (at corer sits on) that becomes some additional shoulder or leg armor, and watever...

    ...but not nearly everyone owns one that wants one (me, for example; wasn't aware of much of 3rd party stuff when SC was out before), and those who don't yet shouldn't have to rely on stupid markups like BBTS's to get their hands on something that'll make FP more money if they produce it again :p
