    You might be able to get the KO of it. Boku trailer. A legitimate UFO one won't be had at a reasonable price IF you can find one.

    Apparently it feels a bit more fragile. I have the Boku one and have transformed it only once as it was to pose with my LT-02 and I can’t say anything wrong about it. Just does the job really.

    I have a legit one and two of the wheels on mine just up and broke off. All by their lonesome. No one played with the trailer, I transformed it a week or so ago and one came off in my hand. Put it all back together and on display and another fell off just sitting there. Such a disappointment.

    Yeah... the original UFO trailer is pretty thin itself as far as plastic goes. Mine is fine.

    Can you tell me where you got your stickers for the UFO Annular Trailer? Are they still available? I've been looking for years!

    I did tell you where I got them... a long time ago. You said they weren't right. The link to the ones I used is in our DM. I used real reflective tape for the red and white markers on the sides. Here's the link again though if you changed your mind...

    OMG I'm so sorry. I am old and it's been a very long time. There's no way in hell that I'll be able to cut and apply reflective tape, so I'll probably just get the robotoybase stickers and call it a day. While they are indeed not 100% accurate, at this point I don't care and they will work. I have bought a lot from robotoybase over the years, so that's the way I'll go. Sorry for the trouble @artimus prime .

    No worries. I hope that another company tries to make the trailer.

    Indeed. Hell, if another company does go for it, they should include a sticker sheet. Packed in free with the early bird preorders, then made available separately. :)

    There are 4 versions of this trailer. I have owned three of them. The original is by UFO then there was a unnamed fourth party company that made one it was an exact replica including all of the thin plastic. Boku is the best version of this trailer because they made all of the plastic thicker and it's slightly flexible which means it won't break as easy. And it easily weighs a lot more than the original or the first KO. Last is the kids hearts trailer which is even thinner and cheaper version of the first KO. It's missing a lot of paint and has a lot of flash marks and just flash all over the pieces there are ugly seam lines everywhere and on all the copies I have experienced the wheels are not pinned in straight so the trailer Bob's up and down when it rolls.

    Original UFO. Great engineering but the plastic is questionable SmartSelect_20201113-172248_Chrome.jpg
    Unknown fourth party. The first KO of the trailer. I bought my new for about $50 the same year that the original came out. Same plastic quality pins tend to slip out of their holes and everything has a loose tolerance. What little paint there is is applied very messy. received_1806893572735065.jpeg IMG_20180119_161852.jpg IMG_20180116_013424.jpg IMG_1432.JPG IMG_1435.JPG IMG_1434.JPG IMG_1433.JPG
    Boku bk02. Weighs almost twice as much as the original or the first KO better tolerances all the way around better paint application thicker plastic by far the best version of the trailer. I have bought and sold this one twice and I just purchased it again this year and I'm not letting it go this time. SmartSelect_20201113-174614_Amazon Shopping.jpg kid heart hz-01.
    I believe that this KO is made based off of the first KO because the tolerances are even worse and none of the panels are actually flat everything is slightly bowed period none of the wheels are pinned probably the cheapest version that you can find and if you're okay with it teeteringprobably the cheapest version that you can find and if you're okay with it teetering a little it's okay as a display option but I do not recommend this version. 762019125838AM_O1CN01Q13Nd31nzKEyscHlf_!!6834951604.jpg 762019125838AM_O1CN01Q13Nd31nzKEyscHlf_!!683495160.jpg

    onlyplace that I have found that sells the boku version only has the combo bk01 and bk02 together so trailer and weapon set. It goes for about $240 American after shipping directly from Japan and is sold through Amazon. I purchased my third copy of the Boku trailer from the same seller so everything is legit with them. Link for anyone who is interested. You have to make an amazon.jp account even if you already have an Amazon account in your native language.

    This is my version of the trailer and the accessories. I will need 3 of his shields (maybe i try to order 3d printed versions)The DOTM jetpack isn't screen accurate. Also work a ROTF Jetfire Upgrade kit what will be compatible with the trailer. I have for him 2 Energon Blades, 2 Hooks, an energon axe, A pair of cubec guns (need to repaint them), Buster gun, DOTM blaster, Striker shield, metal fist, Jetpack. And finally the homemade Jetpower upgrade kit.
