well, here's my only problem, this is the only version you can get!
I want an ark that's a playset sure, but, kinda morso leaning towards the starwars millennium falcon playset. That's it!
Dear kre-o,
your bot sets are lackluster, and boring, but if you make vehicles, like the ark, and dare I say the nemesis (YYEESSSS) than that might be your fine point!
Imagine if kre-o made GIANT arks and nemesisisisisis however plural is on that :lol:
That might make them some cash!
PS: I don't know wich one of you guys said it, but this smily, IS HELLA CREEPY! :ic$: :ic$: :ic$:

Decepticon Prison Cells? I thought Decepticons went straight to the Execution Square in the movieverse. I guess the gullotine didn't made it through the planning phase.

I want the Ark even more, now.

I couldn't finish watching the review. I wanted to reach in and duct tape his mouth, just so he'd shut up. He ruined the review by getting the camera too close, shaking it too much (he's not Bay), and he was constantly spazzing out with his hands. That might just be one of the most annoying reviews I've ever seen.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who noticed his sound even more annoying then the guys who makes Bad Movie Beatdown.

And now I know how this video made first place at Botcon:

FINALLY! someone with a head on his shoulders! it boggles the mind how he got over forty thousand people to watching his videos, thankfully there are other much, much better reviews of the set now, I recommend Protoman or EWalterJR's reviews.

Looking for:
Actionmaster Prime's Armored Convoy, just the cab and trailer with it's smokestacks, add in anything else if you want <=D.
ROTF Skystalker's right wing piece (Left axe)and Star Convoy(Encore).

My TRU had a ton of these out today. I told myself I was gonna skip it but once I saw it in hand I had to get it. Just openened it up and man it's cool as hell! In bad need of some detail paint work but other than that its awesome. Makes me want to actually but some legends figures for it. The sound effects are really cool especially the one that goes off when you place a pilot in the seat when it's in space ship mode. TRU had it on sale for $25 so its a bit more than the other playsets but well worth it. I almost wish they had made other add on sections for it so you can make the actual play set bigger but for what its worth I think it's awesome..

You can add on to it. The weapons platform bases that Megatron, Optimus, Bumblebee and Starscream have, all have connector points that attach.

Optibotimus has a good review of this. He points out that the kreons look alot better with this then the cybervirse and they do more to scale. If a repaint of this playset comes out I wonder if it will be yellow for G1 style. I really like this playset I have two of them one in base mode with my kreons and one in ship mode with two lego astronauts looking at it.
