The Ark Addendum - Shouki's Transform
Oops, sorry, I glance up and the next thing I know, two weeks have gone by. I realize that last week I skipped The Ark Addendum, but this week I'm back in force.
Time to break out the Trainbots! I'll warn you in advance, I don't have all of their transform sequences. I'm missing one of the train-to-robot sequences, and I don't think I have Raiden's combination either. Still, I figured that it was better to post what I had than not.
What boy doesn't love to play with trains? I know I loved them when I was a kid. There's something so majestic about a mighty engine pulling a dozen or two cars along. Thee have certainly been no shortage of Transformers train toys, most of which come from Japan. The trainbots were the first dedicated train team from Transformers. (Well, there was the Astroforce... oh, I'd love the models for the Astroforce!) They'd be far from the last.
As for the specifics of Shouki's Transform, I don't have too much to say. It's not spectacular, but it gets the job done. I do remember that I had a lot of fun researching the Trainbots for
Transformers: The Complete Ark (order it today!) . Getting the best translations for their names and a bit about their personality was very satisfying. Hope you enjoyed those efforts, and this transformation.
