This just arrived at my house the other day. All in all I like it. Using the Headmaster and Targetmaster yield ridiculous results, as expected.

It's a shame about the parts forming. There had to have been some way to incorporate that large pieces of plastic that hide the trailer into robot mode. Even if it was to fold up into a kind of shield or something. And it doesn't attach too well to Classics Prime in Trailer mode. At least not for me. The hitch int he back just fits too snugly and the way it's made prevents Classics Prime from really turning in tat mode, at leat with Prime's knee flaps int he proper configuration. So there's a few flaws.

All in all, I think I paid a bit too much for it at the regular retail price. But only a little bit; it gets a lot more right than it does wrong.

Mine arrived today. :)

I love to tweak every figure I own -- either through customization, or through non-destructive modification to make them look like their 1980's counterparts a bit more.

Check out these changes to Trailerforce:

I ordered mine yesterday. When should I expect it?

And, if there will be no MP Powermaster Prime, is this good enough to be considered one? Even with the plastic Prime component?

Anyone know if there has been talk of recolors of this one (like a slightly remolded and recolored version for Magnus?)?

energon rodimus is too small for it, isn't he? otherwise that'd be the repaint/remold I'd want.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I received mine, surprisingly fast. I had a Powermaster Prime waiting for him, but it didn't really appeal to me after combining them. So i tried out my G1 Optimus. I like the look much better. I don't have a Classics Prime because I think it looks hideous in both modes, but the G1 Prime looks pretty good with this 3rd party piece. I don't think it was worth $180 (shipping included), as it's flimsier than I thought it would be and not as heavy. But overall I don't regret it. I never really liked the original Powermaster Prime because it wasn't posable at all. This one is looks much better. My only 2 minor complaints with the figure itself in robot mode are that the wrists are a bit too loose and don't hold up his 2 big guns well, and the shoulder joint sticks out too far and looks too skinny. it there way a way to collapse the arm into the shoulder a little, it would look more sturdy. Bottom line, I'm not ecstatic, but I'm satisfied.
