    A few updates via Seibertron:

    Some In-Hand Images of SS-38 with comparisons of Evasion Mode Prime and MP-10

    A Video Review of SS-38 with similar comparisons, scale, and featuring transformation. As far as I could see it didn't have any voiceover its just showing off both modes and transformation.

    The more I see, the more I like, the more I want.

And it's not unheard of for them to sneak in a feature like this -- Reveal the Shield G2 Laser Optimus Prime is able to connect with the original 1995 G2 Optimus Prime toy's trailer.

    Agreed Gok! I don't need more Prime trailers taking up space in storage and adding unnecessary extra cost to my purchase. I like what they did with the Legendary Prime allowing it to be compatible with the MP-10 trailer, that's all I need for the few times I feel like taking Legendary Prime off the shelf and putting it into truck mode.

    From what I saw on the video, he does indeed have a hitch! So lets hope its compatible!

    Yeah but for those of us that specifically collect Primes with trailers it’s a letdown. The only time he was seen in his Earth alt-mode he had a trailer so I would have liked one here. If I have to remove the trailer from another Optimus it defeats the purpose of my display for me.

    Yup buddy I already posted them

    But here's a direct link to the vid. It looks like a Chinese site and has a LOT of ads to wade through but the review has no voiceover once you get there.

    Apparently he's out in some US stores now and here's some more photos of him, with comparisons to Siege Prime. There's also some really detailed up-close shots of his truck and robot mode.

    The more I see you, Prime, the more I want you....
