The Ark Addendum - Dauros' Transform
Another week, another Ark Addendum. After going to the Sunbow well for a bit, I figured I'd bounce back to Japan for a lovely Masterforce transformation. This one belongs to Dauros, and they certainly squeezed quite a lot of info onto one page. my favorite part is probably his hand swapping for his gun in the upper left.
When I was a kid, I had this toy, or rather Skullgrin, and would let him flip his hands around for guns while still in robot mode to do extra carnage. It hearkened back to More than Meets the Eye, when robots would routinely replace their hands with tools and weapons. Skullgrin was probably my favorite Pretender toy as a child. (Favorite Pretender character: Bludgeon.) It was fun that Budiansky gave him a spotlight issue. I suppose my like for the character is pretty evident. I wrote a whole Monster from Mars riff into the first
