That's so cool to see. Desertion of the Dinobots is one of my favourites.

Another week, another Ark Addendum update from Jim Sorenson's blog, Disciples of Boltax. This week's update takes us back to the Japanese continuity with Lightfoot's transformation sequence.

[quote]As far as the image goes, it's pretty lovely. As usual, more effort than strictly necessary seems to have been put into this purely internal document. I do find it slightly awkward that the Godmaster controlling the Transtector winds up on his back, though. Not a problem with the transform, a problem with the toy, but still something that bugs me a bit. [/quote]

After taking a week off, Jim Sorenson has updated his Disciples of Boltax blog with another Ark Addendum Update. This week we take a look at one of the Trainbots named Shouki. Even though Raiden's toy might be out of reach for many collectors, we can still take a look at Shouki's transform.

[quote]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.[/quote]

The Trainbots, like the Constructicons, did come from Diaclone and had 6 members:

- Shouki (roughly "Devil Queller")
- Getsuei ("Moon Shadow")
- Seizan ("Blue Mountain")
- Yukikaze ("Snowy Breeze")
- Suiken ("Drunken Fist", after the style of Kung Fu)
- Kaen ("Blaze")

Me being a train lover Raiden is a coveted item, I just wish he was released in the US. :)

The latest installment of the Ark Addendum from Jim Sorenson's blog Disciples of Boltax gives us a closer look at another Japanese G1 Trainbot. The last update brought us Shouki's transformation sequence, this week follows up with Getsui's.

Jim Sorenson has updated this blog, Disciples of Boltax, with his last remaining Japanese G1 Trainbot transformation sequence. We've previously seen Shouki, Getsui, Seizan, and Suiken. This week brings us Yukikaze. Unfortunately Jim lacks the last remaining member, Kaen and their combiner form Raiden.

Yukikaze (like Yu-kee-kah-zay). It's a Japanese name, but as it's rendered in katakana like most names, it has no meaning whatsoever. Were they written in hiragana or kanji (the more traditional characters), they have these meanings:

- Shouki (roughly "Devil Queller")
- Getsuei ("Moon Shadow")
- Seizan ("Blue Mountain")
- Yukikaze ("Snowy Breeze")
- Suiken ("Drunken Fist", after the style of Kung Fu)
- Kaen ("Blaze")

This week's Ark Addendum update from Jim Sorenson's blog, Disciples of Boltax, brings us another animation model from the Masterforce episode Kidnapping!?

This week's Ark Addendum update brings us another set of models from Sunbow's pilot episode of Transformers "More Than Meets the Eye". We get four models of the space cruiser that the Decepticons set out to build shortly after being revived. The ship went unnamed in the cartoon, but while conducting interviews with an original designer during his work on The Complete Ark Jim dubbed the cruiser "The Victory". Visit Jim's blog Disciples of Boltax for more of his thoughts on these models.
