The Ark Addendum - Snapdragon's Transform (jet)
Howdy, y'all! Once again, time slips away. I meant to get this up last week, but I remain swamped! It's a good thing, but I hate to leave you hanging.
This week, one of my two transformation boards for Snapdragon. This is the jet version. It's a pretty simple transform, which is I suppose fitting for a pretty simple toy.
I never had Apeface as a kid, but Snapdragon was one that found its way into my big box o' toys. I didn't care for the name, and still don't. I suppose they wanted to emphasize the jaw, hence the 'snap', but it doesn't work for me. Especially since most of the other names were all overtly head related: Apeface, Mindwipe, Skullcruncher, Hardhead, Brainstorm, Chromedome, Highbrow. (Weirdwolf is the other odd man out.) Also, his dino mode is pretty lackluster. He makes a decent jet, at least.
