In "Dark of the Moon", Optimus Prime rolled into battle with a trailer that transformed into a weapon storage platform. This was a dramatic callback to G1 Optimus Prime's trailer. However, the "Dark of the Moon" toy line never included a trailer that transformed in quite the same manner, leaving it to "Studio Series" many years later.

As part of their promotion for the upcoming "Generations Selects" Star Convoy figure, Takara Tomy has posted a two page comic featuring Optimus Prime (aka Convoy) and Galvatron taking on some nasty invaders with a little help from the Matrix of Leadership! This comic plays off of the play pattern on Star Convoy, showing Convoy changing into the larger "Star Convoy" form and the creation of his Matrix blaster.
