The Transformers Galaxy Hong Kong Fans Group have posted a small gallery of the miniature Mount St. Hillary Playset that appeared on ToaBoa earlier this month. The playset is designed for use with smaller scale figures. As you can see the gallery features a selection of WST's interacting with the set.

that was... unique.

2 questions:

1) Is that computer console a cardboard insert or a sticker?
2) Is Prime farting at the end of this thing?

Answered respectively:

Hard to say, looks like a sticker.

Most definitely.

Too cute! With this being for smaller scale bots, I kinda expect the simpler, fun style and color. In fact, I DEMAND it!!! :twisted:

Definite buy. Love it.

Only thing that could make it better would be thrusters of the ship sticking out the side.

Maybe another 3rd party company will make Ark thrusters to complete this set.

While I really love the concept I have to say that this set would really only look decent with WST figures. Those of us with none are kinda hosed unless we want to drop a bundle on a whole bunch of figures to make this play-set worthwhile. None of the other smaller figures in the TF lines are going to look right with this so what is the point of making something so cool for such a very limited line of TF's?

Don't get me wrong, I do like this set and I'm not dumping on it for the sake of simply being negative. I'm just actually a bit frustrated at seeing something that is both so cool and at the same time utterly useless for me. I don't have much in the way of disposable income and I tend to feel much better about my purchases if I can at least justify getting it. (please note that by "justify" I mean BS'ing myself into believing that I really need this)
These guys are not doing themselves any favors by making this set in the scale that it is. They should have gone for something a tad bit bigger even if it does mean having to spring for a bit more on the cost of the plastic. They would be able to sell enough of them to cover the increase.

For peeps with short attention span's, comic book style presentations are great. If I was a hardcore G1 fan or had more WST figures I'd so have this :D

I now truely know, that Optimus is directly related to Domo-Kun ;)

That thing looks so cheap it would look out of place anywhere but a kid's toy area.

Honestly, it looks like it would work with Legends scale just fine.

You do realize that you are not helping my wallet out one bit, right? :P

I was trying really hard to convince myself that the Legends figures would be too big for this play-set but every darn time I look at the pics I keep seeing one of my Legends Class Movie Primes in the place of that WST Optimus w/trailer and it makes me want this set more. If the Legends class look good with this then an assault on the base by my team of Micromaster Constructicons would look freaking awesome! :grin:

Clearly these guys are smart; I mean, they're following the first and most important rule of photography: if you want something to look cool, add a lens flare.

So many lens flares = so much coolness.

Still not interested in their product though >_>

Apparently Optimus' exhaust fumes are also incredulous. There's your new MySpace headline.

I do like the look of the thing, though the lack of the ark crashed in the side kills it for me. C'mon, that couldn't have been that hard to pull off could it?

Yes it is, and it is awesome. Really tight and transforms really well. Size is on par with the Dinorobots. Check out Robotkingdom to get him.

This will not be part of my fairly large collection of WST toys. It looks cheap and far too plain.
