    Nice, I just ordered it yesterday from Target for my 1.5 yr olds. They love this scale.

    So they can release this trailer but not for the G1 reissue? ;)  I might get this for for a friend of mine.

    In case anyone was wondering... the Flip Racer Optimus that comes with this trailer, is not identical to the previously released single-pack toy (which I first thought it was at first glance).
    The back wheels don't have pins in the trailer version, and there is silver paint on the fists, while the insides of the wheels are painted green (which matches the trailer wheels, if you have both Optimus toys and don't want to mix them up).
    I can't tell how the back wheels are attached if they don't have pins anymore, as I wasn't going to dismantle the toy to find out.
    A couple of other subtle differences was less red paint on the cab, which ends up revealing blue plastic in the side vents... while the headlights were more of a yellow color the same green as on the wheels.
