WOW. If only it was $50 instead of $75... My parents would probably not let me spend so much money on a transformer item, even if I wanted to. As awesome as it is, the price tag is just too high! Oh, and his gun is HUGE. No wonder why he's the city commander XD Are his hands fists with a hole in the center or are those weapons permanently attached to his arms? As great as it is to see these pics, I wish we had better, more detailed ones. Like ones showing what he looks like from the back and stuff. I'm sure someone on youtube will do a review of this set the day it comes out lol

Oh and it looks as if the entire trailer is built around his gun...Looking at the robot mode, it's hard to imagine that somewhere in all of that bulk, armor, and weaponry is a small, innocent little voyager class robot. It's quite impressive, but still I don't think it's worth $76.99. I'd rather buy a masterpiece figure, instead of having to pay for this and also trying to find a sale of this mold for a reasonable price (I don't have any classics prime molds).

That trailer is going to be the greatest unofficial Transformers product ever. Out of everything that has been made, the UM trailer is the one thing everyone should have.

 

I have been a lurker here for a LONG time, but your post begged me to join. A very strong statement about a trailer that to me looks very clunky and, at least in vehicle mode, appears totally functionless- what kind of trailer is it supposed to be??? Granted it's an improvement in robot mode, but a far cry from the greatest unofficial TF product ever. At least 2 better come to my mind- the Justitoys Masterpiece Prime and Megatron add-ons are quite nice and are much cheaper than this. Furthermore, I would argue that Prime's Justitoys trailer actually LOOKS better than the Takara version though unfortunately it doesn't transform.

 

I own Classics Magnus, and would love a trailer for him and all of my other cabs that are currently trailer-less. This set, however, is not the answer to my prayers and I will be passing.

 

Hasbro/TakTom really need to step up to the plate and start making trailers again. A cab without one IMO looks silly.

:wtf Are you high?

 

No offence, but I have to agree with Mike Prime. This is indeed the best non-official TF accessory to date. The trailer may not be 100% realistic, but the cab that Magnus transforms into isn't either. The aesthetic of the trailer fits the aesthetic of the cab. And the robot mode is pure Ultra Magnus awesomeness.

 

The MP add-ons, while cool, were not really necessary for Megatron or Prime's character representation. This trailer, however, is necessary regarding a "proper" Classics Ultra Magnus.

 

You can disagree with me on that point, no biggie. I am, however, very perplexed that you don't think this is a suitable trailer/armour set for Classics Magnus.

IMO it's perfect and you're expecting too much out of both Hasbro/TT and the fine folks who make these add-on accessories.

I'm not expecting too much. If Has/Tak could make a G1 Ultra Magnus in 1986 that was functional in vehicle mode with trailer, but a brick in robot mode, then I expect that by 2008 they can do better. I'm sick of Ultra Magnus as white OP. This custom add-on does try to pick up hasbro's slack, but I think it could and SHOULD be better. Again, what kind of trailer is it supposed to be in vehicle mode? A car carrier? Does it perform that function? It doesn't appear to do so. I admit, it makes robot mode look better, but again it is far from being the "greatest unofficial product ever." Therein lies my issue.

 

We can agree to disagree, and I sincerely hope you like your $76 unofficial modification. I also hope we start seeing even better pictures soon.
