    There's a few things I really like about the design and a hand full of others that I don't like at all. I wouldn't crap on it though as quite a few folks are really looking forward to owning for altmode and I'm an altmode dude so I can dig.

    Also, does this belong here or in "News"?

    Kinda big the big blocky build!!

    So with the minifig. does it imply scaling with Unicron??? I mean they would have a hard time fitting inside the Ark that came with him

    Hmm, is there any noting that it's been modded? This is the first copy I've seen that has the Bridge/Command Centre windows blued somehow (seemingly non-transparently from the up close photo)?

    I'll probably pick it up and keep the big bot in ship mode and the Mainframe component as Teletraan. Enough there to pick it up, maybe not fiddle with it a whole lot.

    Seems a quite dark colour to shift clear yellow to by lighting alone?

    I'm confused. These are decent pics, but we've already seen full video reviews.

    It's not what I was hoping for, but I wouldn't call it terrible.... It would have to be falling apart.

    The big open gaps in the side are so freaking bad. This figure is easily big enough to have retractable covers, or to just not be designed that way. On top of that I just find the robot mode kinda weak. Too gangly. They should've done something similar to Animated Omega Supreme and make him bulky.

    He looks pretty good to me but I'm not weighed down by expectation, a nice and big Ark toy to play around with sounds pretty fun to me.

    This is the best looking titan since Trypticon.

    Sorry, but the Ark itself almost ranks up there with Supreme Starscream in terms of looks and don't want or need. Just...gah!

    Methinks the Hasbro team got the wrong character selections for their classes. Victory Saber should be a Titan-class set and the Ark should have been a Haslab project.

    I'll be waiting for a Selects Mainframe and a proper Ark playset. I've waited almost 40 years for the latter...I can wait a while longer.
