No Trailer for MP-10B Convoy?

According to my local hobby store, the upcoming MP-10B Convoy will NOT have a trailer included.

What's up with that, I wonder?

Maybe it is so they can keep the price down. I don't even know how much it will cost as I'm not interested.

Does Black Convoy have a trailer in the comics?

Comic? AFAIK MP figs don't usually come with them, except maybe the non-cannon ones like the black versions of OP and Rodimus. And since I don't own a black version of OP or Rodimus, I've never read any of the comics.

Black Convoy? Pfft. They ran out of red at the factory, rung Takara and they said
"No probremo, we'll just make another character and charge double!" Bwah ha ha ha!
They probably realised that MP10 didn't move as well as hoped with the ridiculous price tag and wanted to keep things cheaper.

MP-10 didn't sell? Man! I don't know how you can define "didn't sell well" when nearly every japanese online store I rang up had 'em sold out.

AS for this black repaint..........well squeeze it while its hot~ Heck, sometime down the road, MP Soundwave is gonna be released as Soundblaster.

I would have thought that the lower price (£130 in the UK, MP10 was £200+) would have been a clue.

Sold out doesn't necessarily mean it sold well. How many did they order the first time around? How many of these retailers that you rang ordered a second run? How much did they make after their mark-up?
I bought mine off Robotkingdom with that coin box gift 3 months after its release.
Without this information in front of me, I can only speculate, which is why i used the term probably.

As for the repaint, just give us an all white MP10 minus the trailer. You threw a swerve ball by giving us the black repaint first, just cut the horse crap and paint that sucker white already.
