    Personally speaking, if the Ark turned into a playset instead of a robot, I wouldn't want it. As it is, this would be the only titan class figure (aside from CW Devastator) I will own.

    At first I didn\'t like the arks hand but now I kinda like them. It\'s shape and default posing of them kinda emphasizes the sheer mass of him. as if he pushes the limit of what a cybertronian can be with his armoured yet boney proportions.

    Would have been cool if they made the ARK a female titan. since ships are always referenced as her. Or a play on mother ship.

    The Ark's robot mode poisoned our water supply, burned our crops and delivered a plague unto our houses!

    Yes, he is (in some continuities):

    Last Autobot - Transformers Wiki

    Moreover, The Last Autobot has more than a passing resemblance to the mysterious Thirteenth Prime:

    I actually find this figure lacking due to only having 2 modes. Granted the 3rd throwaway mode for most of the Titans is not something to write home about. Yet it has a charm to it.

    The first 3rd party company to make better hands for this guy gets my money!

    I haven't bothered with upgrade kits for any of the other Titans, but this guy is badly in need of real hands....

    you'd think at a titan budget they could have pulled off a less compromised alt mode if they didn't have to work in a thirds mode.

    If you read down to the end of that page, you see that he actually seems to be based off Prima's appearance the Marvel comics, not The Last Autobot.

    The only thing I'm not totally on board with on this guy is the hands. I appreciate the thumbs having a hinge, but they just look akward.

    Nope. Just checked the cartoon. Well, that's a disappointing inaccuracy...

    Yes, but we already have a Prima Prime Master:

    [​IMG]

    And here is "Thirteenth Prime":

    [​IMG]

    They can't BOTH be Prima. And we know in the Funpub continuity, The Last Autobot is Autonomous Maximus, one of the 13. In the IDW/POTP continuity, there is some mystery around the Thirteenth. Is he Optimus Prime, "The Arisen"? Or possibly The Last Autobot? The do share a color scheme.

    Edit: Or maybe the names of these two should be switched: make the orange/blue one Prima and the silver/blue one Optimus. But personally, I was never a fan of the "Optimus is one of the 13" concept.

    Btw, what killed the "Playset"/base mode play model of the toy industry? My other wallet buster aka videogames!:drunk 

    Yup! I was also a part of the perp that help nuke the Playset :cry  play model.

    So Hb, again taking a risk (thank Primus it isn't another crowd funded project like Unicron which I unfortunately had to skip (the taxes would have nuked me at it's time of release)) with this.

    I’m way more into the bridge section of this than I expected. It’d be nice to have a bunch more figures that can fill those slots for crew on the bridge.

    I am a bit disappointed about the size in robot mode

    Perhaps some add-ons from the 3P could cover the gaps in the alternate mode and make the robot as tall as ER Scorponok

    I love how everybody's nitpicking about the Ark's robot mode, complaining about the hands or the head sculpt n' crap..

    And meanwhile I'm just sitting here impatiently waiting for August to roll around because not only will the Ark look great for my G1 diorama, he'll look amazing with my Metroplex figure too. Not to mention we're getting a Teletraan-1 that doubles as a bonus deluxe figure, some really nice looking blue blast effect parts, & the two golden discs~!

    Frankly I think everybody can take their negative skepticism and shove it. Don't like the figure, then don't buy it. Problem solving made simple.

    Am I the only one with it on pre-order that is slowly starting to not like it?
    Those hollow gaps in ship mode where the legs come from seem lazy, among other things I'm noticing.
    Seem so hollow.
