    So I got one thanks to my ever accomodating Missus: IMG_20200706_121943.jpg IMG_20200706_121918.jpg

    She got it from IDToys here in the UK and it has a HasHong Kong sticker on the back so........must be retail release there.

    Hmm, do I need this?

    Wish it was just the bot, don't need a gray trailer.

    Trailers make Primes.
    No-trailer Primes are just incomplete, has no real transformation.

    It's the opposite with me, I don't have Earthrise Prime (I get that it's a great figure), but for me it's just another red and blue prime in a sea of red and blue Primes in my collection.

    I'm excited for Zombie Prime and can't wait until it ships next week(?) since it's a unique/rare take, looks cool, and I still get to experience the Earthrise Prime mold. :D

    I hope there is a gray repaint of the Centurion Weaponizer Pack Roller eventually! Heck, throw in a gray energy axe too!

    It may not accurate to the movie but using the trailer as it's intended repair bay seems appropriate.

    Henkei Convoy/Op is still my CHUG S1/2 Prime. Never got the Combiner Wars, Siege or Earthrise. So having the Siege mold is a reason I still have it on pre-order.

    True, but a big factor is space on my shelf. I have room for a fig, but not a laid out trailer for a dead Prime.

    We'll see.

    Understandable.
    Too bad you couldn't just pop the sides off to slim it down some.

    One of the ER trailer complaints is that it's small. That may work out in your favor.

    True. It's a continual game of Transformers Tetris I play. The big space in front of Sandstorm is reserved for MMC Dicamus/Roadbuster so we'll see.....

    The trailer can also be propped upright for repair bay mode, so you can save on space that way too.

    Trailer mold also includes parts of the main figure, so it couldn't come without the trailer as is

    And, let's face it, if they're selling "Dead Prime" to specifically reference the movie... being able to put him on his death bed is part of it.
