    not the faintest hint of a true premium paintjob. looks plain ordinary.

    The Megatron set that will be come out seems way better than this set.

    Yes, the trailer is compatible with both Primes.

    I wonder if you could put any deluxes in the trailer and have the side close up?? Probably not but it'll be cool if you could.

    The Primes look great, but I am sick of trailers that are just big boxes that do little or nothing. It has so much potential! Ultimate Prime was a lemon in some aspects, but at least we have a trailer that does something other than.... open.

    I'm getting this to give the Wal-Mart deluxe Prime a trailer, while displaying both the in robot mode. The trailer looks okay, but I wish it opened in a more traditional way. I suppose they save on a hinge with this design ...

    That box art is extremely lame, too.

    At least someone can maybe make a custom of the actual trailer that Prime used in DotM out of this one....

    I actually really like it. The G1 Prime is one of the few G1 toys I've been interested in adding to my collection simply for the comparison, and the DOTM prime fixes everything I hate about the single-carded one. Plus, trailer.

    I bought it. My old Optimus off when I was a kid is battered to pieces. The trailer is in good condition, though.

    Always promised myself I'd buy a new one just for the nostalgic reason. So I went for this.

    Now considering do I buy the Masterpiece (have earlier Prime masterpiece) or start throwing cash on Hercules....

    Is it just me, or is G1 Megatron without his chrome just depressing to look at?

    I was just going to ask if it was a different trailer for the McDonald toys. Nice, definitely bought!

    DOTM Megatron looks great, but not for the price.

    Yeah, I've always preferred the mold chromed up, either in the silver or the darker Black Megatron deco. It just works better for guns.

    I actually want the G1 Megatron pretty bad, I love him in all his dull goodness. I want to buy this set but I don't know if I'd be able to unload the DOTM Megs. Doesn't seem like anyone likes him either.

    I just noticed that G1 Megatron seems to be compensating for something with that big blk Canon,

    Dude, I actually like that DOTM Megs, but it's the G1 Megs I'm not loving out of this set. Pretty sure you wouldn't have a problem unloading the DOTM Megs at all. Heck, I'd be interested.

    The Prime set looks blah. What is the point of this thing?

    I actually really want both of these sets, one because I`m more of a newbie transformers fan and have never before had the chance to get either g1 primes of megs and I really want them

    And two, because the only reason I don`t have either of those dotm molds was the paint jobs, and these sets have rectified that.

    So I`m going to try really hard to get them both as they`re all going to look AWESOME in my budding tf collection.

    Both of those sets look so cool!
