    I'm ready for people to never EVER again mention KO's in a thread covering the official (legal) release. We can do it guys! But it'll take us all to destroy the evil forces of the KnockCons.

    Now...Let the diatribes railing against me for championing legal IP commence!

    I like his TFP look, but the head always looked off to me.

    Prim himself looks absolutely glorious, but that trailer is an abomination. The designers should have been able to do something about how ugly the little wheels look with that much space above them before the main body of the trailer. It's just hideous the way it is and really detracts from the look.

    The wheels look like that because they fold flat for the open mode. Lets the base sit flat on the floor. If they put wheel wells on it, it would stick out. Course, it does still look a little daft, and could have been avoided by having swing arms like the g1 original to support the elevation.

    About the best response (while keeping it light hearted) imaginable. I tip my cap to you, sir.

    To be honest, I'm mainly just trying find reasons to use memes. Next on my list, Baby Yoda.

    Looks like they're on a hinge and the shots seem to show the trailer lies flat on the ground. Granted i didn't watch the tonton review, so if they don't fold flat, then it's a very bizarre choice in terms of appearance.

    I feel eh about this now that I've seen the final product. I was really excited initially, but now I can't justify buying it. Not that it's expensive, and it is cool, just not cool enough. We've had so many neat selections for Prime this year, that perhaps I've just become spoiled. I'm excited for those out there looking for a nifty definitive chug at the voyager scale. It definitely foots the bill. For whatever reason I can't seem to get excited though. Weird. Is this what collector fatigue feels like?

    The trailer is a total after thought. I watched the video review and it’s clear about 90% of the engineering and 75% of the materials went into Prime himself. It’s incredible how well done he is. It addresses almost every complaint we’ve had for years.

    I would have bought it at a Voyager price point without the trailer it’s so well done. The trailer is a bonus for folks that really want Prime to have a trailer. I’ll almost certainly set the trailer aside and never again touch it.

    Long time listener ... first time commenter. And all I can say is Night Flame nailed it. I wondered if it was just me who thought. \"Wow Hasbro you really tried and succeeded on this Pri ... what in good God is going on with that trailer?!?!?\"

    Yeah, seems like it was a bit of an afterthought.
    Not sure if I'm the best person to say so, but welcome aboard!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that sees the problem with trying to mainstream IP theft especially in these days where Hasbro is heavily catering to us and at a time where toys are in decline due to a number a reasons and Hasbro is barely able to maintain it's foothold in major stores we have people championing KOs and frothing at the mouth to post about it in every thread.

    I would expect mods to move these distasteful posts to the proper place.
