The Ark Addendum - Sixshot's Transformation (part 3)

OK, let's finish off this badboy! It's Sixshot's final transformation sequence; his gun mode.  Unlike his other four transformations, this one starts in robot mode and ends in gun mode.  I don't think there's any special significance to that, but I found it curious.

Also note the dotted line connecting his rifles to the side of his gun mode. These sorts of lines showed up a lot in the 1987 character models, on both sides of the Pacific. In fact, there's a scene in Money Is Everything where the animators misinterpreted the lines connecting Blot to his backpack weapon and drew it that way.
