    It's been a while since the playset to end all playsets was released, and I find myself loving the Cyberverse Ark all over again.

    From the lights and sounds to the only official space bridge representation in toy form, I like everything about it. What do you use your Ark for? A base? A ship? Do you use the weapons on other places?

    I'd like to talk about it!

    (Roller discussion is also acceptable)

    I've been using MP-10 Convoy's trailer as a base for my TFP Cyberverse Bot figures, and the DOTM Ark for the Cons (in place of the Nemesis). Seems to work out quite well.

    Mine is an Autobot base the Decepticons are attacking in my movie Cyberverse display. I've got Optimus' trailer in battle base mode attached to one side of it.

    Right now my Decepticons are repurposing it as a base. They are literally posed "assembling" it: some are posed attaching parts together, others are carrying supplies, still others checking to see if a particular thing is working; it's pretty damn fun and I really aught to get some pictures.

    In the meantime:

    My minicons inhabit it. I consider it the ship they used to escape from cybertron with.

    I got one for about $10.81 at Target, quite a nice set, my only major complaint is why only one functioning missile launcher?!
    Anyways, it serves two purposes; base for movie Autobots and base for the Transformers Prime Autobots.

    Mine is sitting on my desk right now, as I contemplate how to mod it. I'd like to add more engine thrusters to the rear to make it screen accurate, as well as LED's in all of them.

    I'm also researching how feasible it would be to paint.

    The Ark just barely fits on the cabinet-top I got it on (camera was NOT cooperating...):

    My K-mart has them on Clearance for $20. Been thinking about picking one up to use for Prime Cyberverse, but I think I'd prefer to wait and use that money for the Driller or Wheeljack's ship.

    Although if the price goes any lower, I might have to bite.

    I personally thought the Ark was a pretty dull playset and sold mine, but I'm glad to see you guys having fun with it! Some cools scenes.
