The Ark Addendum - The Ultimate Doom (part one)
The Ultimate Doom - a three part episode with an epilogue. Certainly one of the largest Transformers stories told. And yet, it starts so small, a simple Decepticon attack on a solar power station. It was a very slick move on the part of the writers to structure the story this way. It lulls the audience into a false sense of complacency. Of course, the story would soon take many twists and turns, but these are the models that get things started.
Incidentally, I'm really glad that I was able to track down the model pack for The Ultimate Doom. Quite a lot of those models found their way into The Complete Ark, including a full page devoted to the Decepticon undersea headquarters. I also rather liked the drill on the hood of Brawn's vehicle mode, and was happy to be able to slip that in.
