I've decided to start doing some of my own off my mind kind of like the staff do with their news sometimes. One I thought of is what happens to Optimus Prime's trailer go when he transforms? In pretty much every series when he transformers into a truck the trailer comes and just attaches to him and when he turns into a robot it just disappears. It's like it just goes off into some other dimension or something when he transforms. Not only that, in the DVDs for Transformers Animated, there are shorts and in one of them a bunch of kids are asking Optimus a bunch of questions and one of them actually asked him where his trailer goes when he transforms and he couldn't actually give an answer (which I found to be pretty funny because not even Prime himself has a clue what happens to it when he transforms). So what ideas do you all have about what happens to his trailer as he transformers?

I don't think it does. When he transforms, I usually see it just fly off and it's completely gone and no one seems to know where it went.

Personally, this is the one I agree with most.

Yeah. And in Energon it contained those parts which would combine with him whenever he turned into Super mode. But in Cybertron, it just disappeared completely when he transformed and only appeared when he went into super mode or turned into his alt mode.

I thought Cybertron was pretty good. Energon was crap though.

I think in the IDW series they said it was "mass displacement" where he got rid of a lot of his mass. It was in the Escalation arc.
