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.

Thanks for the English translations of the Trainbots' names, JelZe. I always wondered what their names meant.

The Trainbots were the only ones w/o English names, right?

Thinking about this ship, the Victory... and the Nemesis. Which one was the ship fans have accepted as the one where all the season 2 conehead seekers were on and 'rescued'? I remember watching specifically for which ship landed where, etc.... but the ships all kinda look the same.

Anyone have a definitive list of ships and their resting places up their sleeve? (ha)

The Victory is the one which crashed into the ocean in MTMTE3.

The TFs Wiki page tells you what happened to the Nemesis (http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Nemesis_(G1)) in the different continuities.

I think the confusion comes from BW calling the ship in the ocean the Nemesis. Of course, the name of the ship crashing into the ocean in MTMTE3 was retconed, so maybe that explains the inconsistency, although in the cartoon, there are definitely two different Decepticon ships.

That was it!! I watched BW and it confused the issue. Thanks for the help, Joetx. :APPLAUSE: .

No problemo, gothsaurus.

Since it's been 20-something years (man, I'm old) since I last saw the episodes in question, I didn't recall what happened to the Nemesis in the G1 cartoon myself. All I remembered was it spinning out of control in MTMTE1. I had just assumed it went back to Cybertron b/c it definitely wasn't the ship that crashed into the ocean in MTMTE3.

Nope, the Dino Force from Victory had non-English names as well:

- Gouryu ("Mighty Dragon", T-Rex)
- Gairyu ("Armored Dragon", Ankylosaurus)
- Doryu ("Earth Dragon", Stegosaurus)
- Kakuryu ("Horned Dragon", Triceratops)
- Rairyu ("Thunder Dragon", Apatosaurus/Brontosaurus)
- Yokyryu ("Winged Dragon", Pteranodon)

This week's Ark Addendum update takes us back to the Japanese Masterforce series with an animation model of Cyberton leader Hawk's car. Be sure to check out Jim Sorenson's blog Disciples of Boltax for more interesting Transformers related information.

See, the leader of the Cybertrons, Metalhawk, had a human disguise, Hawk. Naturally, Hawk needed to get around, so he drove this nifty little two-seater.
