    I'll admit I don't spend, well, any time in this forum due to my disdain of the movie series. I don't own them in any media format, I own very few of the toys; you get the picture.

    After not finding anything on the TF Wiki, do we have any sense as to the size of the Ark from DOTM? Perhaps an extra or an early art piece that gives us a clue as to the scale of the ship?

    120 Meters? 300 Meters? Anyone know?

    I was curious as to this as well. I've searched extensively on the internet and found nothing on it. I would guess , though that it is roughly 300-800 meters in length. We never get to see the entire ship on the moon, only shots from the aft area.

    Best way of thinking about it might be to use the front "window" as a frame of reference compared to a cybertronian, and then the size of that window compared to the ship using the toy dimensions.

    Totally off the top of my head, let's say a TF is around 15-20 feet tall, the window looked about 2-3x larger than a TF, and about 4-5x windows for the length of the ship, so by my estimate somewhere between 120-300 feet long.

    Looking at pictures of the Ark and pictures of the people in it and outside it. Humans with suit on probaly around 6 foot tall. Now look at them on the ridge looking down at it. Its massive. They where proably a good football feilds lenght away at the time the camera pans in behind them on the ridge. Then cnce they are inside the Ark Theres a shot where you can see behind them and it seems to go on for a bit.

    My guess is its about two hundred yards or more.

    I would imagine a transformer would look to the Ark the same way a human would look to a big passenger jet.

    Yeah, somewhere in the range of 1600 feet seems to fit what we see on screen. Who else could we ask to find the exact specs though? Just be fun to have a tech sheet on the Ark's type of ship, weapons, ext.
