    @Sam called the under trailer storage way back when we first saw the trailer. Eagle-eye Sam! Good call!

    So they made a completely new trailer with more features than the previous.



    But pure greed.

    And to give people a better looking Sideswipe in the process :cool: 

    It was confirmed in the interview that Roller can pull the trailer, but nice to see that he can also hold Prime's gun!

    Haha thanks for remembering me guys! It was mentioned in the interview that the Starscream parts couldn't be stored in the trailer, which logically meant that all the other parts somehow could. Underneath the trailer was the only place that we hadn't seen, until now!


    I hope this isn't the only way that the rocket pack is compatible with Sideswipe...

    Though it does look pretty bad-ass!

    As I've stated previously, I've preordered my figure with Nippon-yassan (havent paid yet though, using their pre-order service).

    Has anyone on here got any honest experience with them?

    Just that since my pre-order, I've been reading some real bad reports on them.

    Dont really want to cancel as at the moment the price inc postage is at £300 GBP.

    They are legit.

    Just expect zero communication and a very slow service. Luckily, I never had a problem with any of my orders.

    You should be fine.

    Good to hear.

    I havent used them for about 4 years. Most of the time back then my stuff arrived OK, though there was 1 order that I had problems with.

    But 4 years on I could do with hearing how they are these days.

    Late delivery shouldnt be a problem, as the wife has told me it'll have to be a xmas present anyway :) :) :mad:

    It's only getting more expensive the longer you wait.

    Women actually respect a man having a hobby, nerdy or not. Show’s passion and direction. Women love men being passionate about something. Anything.

    I believe the jet pack uses Sideswipes gun mount on the roof which is also available on the back of bot mode. It may look a little weird though.
