    This trailer (or at least the original version of it) is already out in Japan, right? Has anyone put this trailer on other Primes to see how it fits? Classics voyager prime or the new TF: Prime Voyager prime?

    I wasn't interested in the Deluxe Optimus mold... but this? This is pretty cool. I'd buy it with the trailer.

    I hadn't expected that the line would actually be called "Movie Trilogy," but it is promising, since it's proof that there will be another movie line after DOTM, and that there could be hope for figures we haven't gotten yet.

    Actually, when my company asked back before the Investor Day event, we were told that he would not be getting a DOTM figure. They told us that they had license issues that prevented him from being produced in time for the 4th qtr, and that they were aware of the fans desire for the figure.

    This came from a female member of the TF Marketing team at Hasbro. We only got to talk to her after pressing the issue for several weeks. Even then , her answers were contrary to what we had been previously told about Mirage from them, and that being that they had secured the license prior to the film (DOTM) going into pre production.

    Who knows? i just think they really screwed up the entire DOTM line when compared to the previous movieverse lines.

    They could have had both Mirage and Wheeljack produced, in multiple formats, way before now. I hope this isn't a trend that they will continue with future films in the franchise.

    The license issues are with Ferrari. We've known about this for a while.

    You may have known about the license issues bro', but I didn't. Especially when i was told two different versions. However, I'm interested in hearing exactly what you know about the issue, as it may help in quelling this issue once and for all.

    Hasbro paid to have him in the Movie, they can certainly pay to have him as a toy. Not sure what the big deal is.

    Screw the Ferrari, just make him look as close as possible without the Ferrari logos. We'll add our own decals :)

    Basically, Mattel, one of Hasbro's larger rivals, had first dibs on making Ferrari toys. I'm not sure why they can't make something like in the game, but I'm sure there's some legal reason behind it.

    Now....this is not biblical but remember we were told they couldn't get mirage/dino to us before q4 of this year. There are reasons to this, the launch of the new trilogy line at toy fair, and after speaking to one of my friends who organises it says there doing reveals. Plus the DVD follow up releases and also the announcement of tf4 which the trilogy line will supposedly lead us into :)  most of this is speculation but there is definite reveals at toy fair uk am aware of.

    If anyone is to consider getting this,what i suggest is might as well get the Chronicle Optimus Prime box set,at least there is the G1 Optimus Prime in that set & is a japan version.

    good question! I should think it's the case. No point for Takaratomy to make multiple trailers especially for Deluxe and Voyager Classes. Also, slightly ''off topic'': Takaratomy needs to do a Leader Class trailer, an Official one.

    There is more than just "paying mattel" its a lot more complicated than that.

    i second that.
    So many Leader Primes have been released,not one trailer for them?
    No thanks to Ultimate Prime,seeing as how the Prime figure is smaller than the other Leaders.
    Maybe someone should release just the trailer itself like the Ironhide add-ons?
    If any company has plans to do it, please include an arsenal of weapons that our Primes can use.

    Since it's the deluxe trailer, no.
