Toy News: Official Stock Photos of "Cyberverse" Ark Power Optimus Prime

Earlier this year it was revealed that "Cyberverse" would be switching gears with a new subline known as the "Power of the Spark". Among the figures in this line is a large Optimus Prime figure that comes with The Ark! The Ark is both a ship and armor for Optimus Prime. While the scale makes zero sense, it is a fun play pattern and 30+ years later after its introduction, toys of The Ark are still rare in the Transformers line.

Toy News: "Generations Selects" Snaptrap Prototype Photo

Earlier this month Takara Tomy revealed a teaser image for what fans speculated would be a "Generations Selects" Snaptrp figure. Now thanks to a photo from (what appears to be) Figure King magazine we have our first look at the grey model for a "Combiner Wars" style Snaptrap! The figure appears to be a heavy retool of the "Combiner Wars" Silverbolt sculpt, which went on to be reused several times over the past couple years.
