Ok, I posted this before and it got moved or deleted because I can't find it anymore.

A while back I saw a custom Prime trailer that someone did and in his post he showed the link to the trailer he purchased. I seacrched and couldn't find it, can someone direct me to it please.

Thanks.

Hey I thought the Alternators are 1/24 and if Optimus is to scale to the Alternator line shouldnt the trailer be 1/24?

No, Optimus is his own scale and it isn't mentioned on the box. But he's not scaled with the BTs.

Actually, he's not.

His wheels are undersized for his scale, and the "real" Prime should have a 45-foot trailer. However, most all modern trailers (and toys/models thereof) are 48 or 53 footers. Combined with needing smaller wheels to match Prime, 1/32 is "undersized" but ends up looking right.

My guess is Prime's 1/28.

I think it is mentioned somewhere in the instruction booklet of MP Convoy that he IS in fact in scale with the Alt/Bins. I'll have to check again.

I suppose the reason they don't advertise it so on the box is that Prime doesn't actually look like a real life truck as much as the BTs look like real-world vehicles.
