I'd prefer it didn't transform.

If we are getting the so-called Core class figures and they are of the Ark's passengers, then I completely agree. If not, then I personally do not want an Ark at all. Not a fan of the Last Autobot and that's the only bot whose name has been mentioned. I get his appeal for Marvel G1 fans who read that one issue. But I am not. And I doubt I am the only person who isn't.

Not going to complain if it is, though, as I'm sure something else Transfomers related will be available for me to spend that money on lol.

If I had a requirement, it would open to be a diorama of the main control room, which kind of seems like what it's going to be judging by the photos. So, basically, if true they nailed it.

If it doesn't transform then that saves me money. I get that the Ark is an important part of G1 lore, but I personally don't want or need an Ark. If it transforms and it isn't an Animated Omega homage, then bot mode will have to be pretty good for me to buy it. Happy for those of you that are excited though

I'm interested in the idea of a transformable ark, but I would have to see how it's executed before I make a decision on whether or not it's something I would be interested in. Not that I'm going to be able to get whatever the next titan is in any case. Even if I could muster up the cash I'm not sure I would be able to justify spending that much money on one single transformer. Even if it a big boy.

As long as Earthrise Optimus can wear it as Armor... :P

It's going to be one big mass of orangeyness either way. Core class still wouldn't scale with it considering how many bots were inside it, so it may as well transform but I think I'd be leaving it in ship mode if I had the space for it.

Now that would be interesting, as then it could be used by all figure classes.

Not crazy about it just being a play set. I would hope it at least has a base mode or something. Or at least includes a deluxe figure with it

I'm split on this. I don't like how the Ark looks in the cartoon or as it will be here. The G1 comic version of the Ark looks much better to me. However, the orange and the curves will make it easier for it to be the Last Autobot, if that indeed is true. If it is, I'm sold. If it isn't, then I'll wait for further info.

How it looks in the picture is how it looks in the cartoon. It was the same in Siege as well...just less...green.

Would ER Optimus Prime be $70 if he came with Roller and a jet pack? Nope, so what makes Rodimus so expensive? Rodimus doesn't even need a complex transformation to be cartoon accurate, he can literally be "G1 with elbows" as they say.

The Commander Class Rodimus I want is the "New Rodimus" fire truck.

He could be a pre-tool of RID Prime/Super Fire Convoy as a 2022 Commander Class.

Duke Fire from Brave Police J=Decker would like to make your acquaintance.

Both Takara's Transformers and Brave designers say the two are unrelated and any similarities are coincidental.

I've heard that a lot over the years, don't believe it. I've always felt Takara wanted to cover just how much they reused between lines over the years.

If I'm going to put down a lot of money, it better transform. Besides, what's the point of a playset? No mainline figure will be able to fit in it. I doubt Micromasters & Mini-Cons will either.

And I fully support it being The Last Autobot. I realize a portion of the fanbase won't get the reference, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be used.

I would be happier if I could find the damn thing.

WFC Titan class TFs are very hard to find. Even online finding Scorponok has been impossible without having to use second market sellers who double or triple the price. And unless Hasbro has a money back guarantee on the release date for the Ark even pre-ordering is next-to-impossible for people like me on a fixed income where $160 can buy a lot of food.

I'm aware of that. I know the toyline supports the current media, and vice versa, so the Ark has to look the way it does. I was just saying I prefer how the Ark looked in the G1 comics. It was blockier and more angular, not to mention metallic light blue instead of a Dorito. And I was hoping a Titan figure might be an exception. But whatever. At least we're getting an actual Ark. Hopefully it won't be just a hollow shell we can throw some legends class figures into.

There's also been mention of Vector Prime which actually makes a little more sense. He was a time traveler and Kingdom is about time travel, plus his design is apparently based on the Last Autobot so there's a few layers going on there. Imagine if Vector Prime comes to the Autobots for help with an issue in the Beast Era and to get them there he merges with the Ark to make it into a time machine. And it's such a forced merging that the robot mode isn't quite complete making him look like the Last Autobot.

A Titan class Ark just sounds so unappealing to me, especially without a wide range of characters to scale with it. A big playset could be cool but it taking the Titan class slot for a year? Even if it does transform I'm afraid it'll be compromised by the focus on the playset aspect. Wish this could've been a smaller more affordable Unicron, Tidal Wave, another combiner BW or not, or something really off the wall like a Victory Saber set.

I've always been a proponent of more larger aspects becoming figures. More City Bots, more spaceships. They've tried to retroactively do that with The Nemesis, ala Aligned Trypticon (although only a 3P actually bothered to make that a figure) and I've always thought The Revenge, for example, would be a really good potential figure too. Obviously it would have to be a new character altogether. The entire franchise is all about robots that are More Than Meets The Eye. I've always thought if it doesn't transform, it doesn't belong in this line.

BUT, The Last Autobot, already had an altmode. He should have been a figure years ago. Animated OM was ready and waiting to be an Ark based figure. Standardise his design and there is no reason why he shouldn't have been? TLA doesn't have fans, only existing for a few panels. Only those with exposure to the Marvel Run even know he exists. So his selection is puzzling. If it were based on the G1 design. This would have to be Heavily altered to accommodate the design of the Ark.

Although there is already repaint potential. Cartoon or comic...

It would never be a G1 version of Animated Omega Supreme especially not with Siege Omega being the second last titan, and hell will freeze over before they make a straight up Animated Omega Supreeme figure when there's no existing media in recent times to warrant it, it's not like Cybertron Optimus Prime where it already had the same aesthetic as G1, the Animated art style is too drastic of a change to be fitted in without major adjustments and by that point what would be the point of making him be anymore?

Why would this matter? it's not like Hasbro couldn't just "change" his alt mode it for the sake of the toy like they do for others in the lines.

They were both spaceships anyways it isn't that different.


Plus it might only just be a Last Autobot/Vector Prime homage in bot mode and not necessarily the same character.
