    I know I have seen this on Ebay before. It is obviously a GIJoe Defiant or Crusader shuttle repainted and stickers slapped on it.

    I kinda like the idea. It'd be a neat playset for HOC's.

    I really hope that we get an actual Hastak Transformers transforming Ark one day. Even if it is just a deluxe like Energon Sharkticon. This was a nice try, but not nice enough.

    You know the funny thing is we are all calling it a fake,( which it more than likely is) but wouldnt it be funny if it was an action masters prototype ark or something cool like that? the paint job looks professional as do the insignias

    oh man...that'd be awesome...even though i think im gonna sell all my actionmasters...except tracks....maybe hasbro was testing with repainting an old joe vehicle to work with action masters, but then AM died, leaving this to be doomed to obscurity

    Just out of curiosity, can anyone post a pic of the gi joe ship they think this is a re-paint of? The paint apps look pretty good, but I need a closer look.

    I think it may be legit, being it is stamped 1987, which would be a logical release of a scrapped prototype, after the 1986 TF:TM...

    Defiant launch complex:

    The Defiant came out officially in 1988 and was discontinued domestically in 1989.

    The mold of the space shuttle only was re-used in 1989 to create the Crusader Space Shuttle.

    so i don't think it was ment for a TF line, although I think the bigger shuttle (The one this rides on) would have made a better Ark.

    It's a custom, but pretty cool tho! It works nicely w/ wst & scf's. the inside control panels are detailed w/ diff colors.
