The race to find the Allspark is on between the heroic Autobots and evil Decepticons on the Cyberverse animated series! With the Allspark, both sides can harness incredible new powers, including the power to convert Earth vehicles into Spark Armor: battle-ready gear that allows them to fight in new places and in new ways. Bots with ground-based alt modes can use Spark Armor to take flight, while those who soar through the skies with flying alt modes are suddenly just as formidable on the ground. With the Allspark at play, see how its power will be used to defend Earth… or threaten it.
Optimus Prime harnesses the power of Allspark to convert the Autobot ship, the Ark, into powerful Spark Armor!
Kids can collect other Spark Armor figures (each sold separately, subject to availability) to discover more exciting characters from the Cyberverse series -- great way to introduce kids and new fans to the exciting world of Transformers!

It's big, although not quite as large as I had expected. I was very tempted to pick it up, but $50 is still a bit high for something with that level of articulation. Especially with the Unicron figure in the future, I have to save where I can.

Thanks, that's great news. Is it as BIG a box as it looks?
My local Target in Omaha, NE is resetting their toy aisles, and there were two of this figure on the bottom shelf as of last night. So he's likely to be in other stores very soon, if not already.
