    At first there was nothing. Then I tried to add a Powermaster partner. I failed. Then I tried to add an engine that would transform into a jetpack and a battle helmet for the super mode. Not convincing enough. Then I thought about doing an engine that would transform into a weapon for the super mode. Weapon ended up being too small (looked more like a pistol). So here's what I came up with: an engine that stays attached and transforms into an integrated dual cannon in truck mode, the only mode without any weaponry so far. Stealth Force mode!

    Front view: all looks normal, save for a couple new hinges next to the grill

    Oh look, they open up and there's an engine inside!

    First flip the entire engine block forward and then flip back the central part and this is what you get:

    Stealth Force mode (w/ trailer)

    Transformation to robot mode is unchanged.

    All was good until here, but then I came across a problem: I couldn't attach the jetpack in super mode anymore! before the jetpack used to peg right in the middle of where the solid grill used to be and sandwich the front the of the truck on the other side. Now with the central part full of hinges and stuff, it wasn't possible anymore.

    So I redesigned the front part of the trailer (the jetpack) once again, made the hitch pin longer (to move it slightly away from the robot) and move it to the very front (so it would peg lower on the backpack, under the grill), changed the cover plate (made it shorter to gain some clearance behind Prime's head), then added hinged "grabbers" on the front of the truck that magically end up pegging on the only nubs available on the T bar AND fitting under the top portion of the cab in truck mode. Still had to redesign one last time the front of the truck to move those hinges in the middle of the plate to make the jetpack perfectly perpendicular to the ground.

    Robot mode - engine flipped forward, ready for super mode

    VoilĂ ! I don't think there's much left to improve at this point, the list of features is getting long:

    TRUCK MODE

    -front grill that reveals an engine that converts into a weapon
    -functional trailer

    ROBOT MODE

    -hitch that turns into a weapon
    -hidden weapon under the left arm
    -chest windows open up to reveal the matrix of leadership
    -full range of articulation

    SUPER MODE

    -trailer transforms into armor
    -hidden upper arm weapons (both arms)
    -trailer feet double as forearm weapons (both arms)
    -full range of articulation preserved

    You're updating this like crazy, and tbh I can't wait for it to be the size of China. Also, much better than the mask.

    An Onslaught style turret on the trailer? The platform would split and unfold as extensions, while the guns themselves would become hand held, and maybe combine into Primes classic Ion Blaster. Wud do ya' think?

    I'm not sure, I kinda still want Prime to keep his "realistic" alt mode. I'm trying to see if there's room left underneath the trailer to accommodate the wings and maybe a bigger handheld weapon. There's not much left!

    I don't know about integrated wings, but you could certainly make his accessories turn into cargo of some sort. Also, friended, if you don't mind. :)

    Several revisions to the trailer. Changed a lot of parts from red to black or silver, added hand blasters for combined mode that double as clips to solidify the trailer, new and simpler hinge connection for the rear trailer halves and at last, real feet for the combined mode! I decided to sacrifice just a tiny bit the flat trailer surface to integrate the feet, I thought it was worth it. Also made slight revisions to Prime's upper legs.
