    It's a Transformers video thread!!! No, it's a Transformers Toy thread!!! Ah, screw it, it's going in the general discussion threads.

    Behold, my iGear Command Control Center... humorously reviewed by Optimus Prime himself.

    That's a great take on the Optimus Prime voice. Seems funny to hear Prime say "what up" but that's part of the fun :)

    Dude! Where have you been? I've been waiting to hear back from you for weeks? Haven't heard whether or not you got your birthday present yet! Cuz if you didn't, I'm going to seriously be mad at bigbadtoystore.com. I don't know how long it takes to ship something over there.

    I ordered it on the 26th and it shipped the 29th to the address you sent me. It's been 15 days and I'm starting to worry cuz it wasn't cheap. Then again, I don't know how long it takes to ship something from here to there. I sent them a message so maybe I'll find out something.

    Mmmm. I'll let you know as soon as it arrives? Best PM me the address that you sent it to just to make sure it's gone to the right place. I'm pretty sure that packages from them have to be signed for.

    What I want to know is how you got that damn thing set up! I can't seem to get mine to stay together for shit, it keeps popping apart every time I try to add a piece.

    oh, it took me three hours to get it to stay together. after countless times of trying to get the floor to fit together, i finally got it. the walls weren't much easier. they just don't fit well together. i bought some wall tacky stuff that should help bond them together so they don't pop apart so easily. i don't want them to be permantely stuck the standard way to set it up because i many be creating different scenes inside the ark.

    btw, why the heck did this get moved to a tf video discussion board? it's more appropriate to be stuck in the toy forum than the video forum? the reason i stuck it in the general discussions is because it really doesn't fit in either video or toy discussions. wow. i can't catch a break. it's like the higher ups don't want me to leave the video discussions or the world will end.

    :D

    Wow, that was funny as hell. You should've said at the end, "Now get out of my cave or I'll blast a cap in ya!" LOL But still awesome job.

    Mine just came in this (yesterday) afternoon. I want to make sure I have enough space before I try to set it up. Plus, since I don't have a permanent location for it yet, I wonder if there's any trouble disassembling it for transport.
    When I get set up, my G1 (1984-85) crew are going to have a place to crash.

    Your review definitely does the place justice.

    I also wonder if iGear will see additional sets of floor and wall plates seperately. So a person could add... oh say, just enough room for (1984-85) Prime to sit in truck mode (w/ trailer) in front of Teletran I. (Then you could portray a group of Autobots driving out of the room in response to some crisis.)

    to be honest, i was just screwing around... thus the shortness of the video. just wanted to show off the ark. it will be in future videos of mine. :)  the "cribs" idea just popped in my head while i was recording the ark.

    i would say to put it together on a solid piece of wood or metal so you can pick it up without it falling apart. it is VERY unstable. i got some tacky/sticky stuff to put between the joints and i had to superglue the labels on it because they had all fallen down the next day. i didn't want to permanently join the thing together because i might need to make different sceneries with it later for future videos like corridors and small rooms.

    thanks and i hope you are right. but if not and i have the money available, i may get another to create a larger setpiece and THEN permanently fasten it together. i would love to make the dinobots' cave and the exit ramp and possibly even the command deck (the front of the ship).
