Love those instruction sheets.

You're absolutely right - as wonderful as the toys are, the instructions (and even the packaging) are just as magical. I used to pore over the catalogs and manuals that came with my toys from that era, especially the few Japanese imports that I was lucky enough to find. Knowing that I was probably never, ever going to see most of those items in person made them even more interesting...

Oh, the random catalog or multi-toy instruction sheet was a window into a mysterious and fascinating world back then. A friend has several figures from this line, including Daimos and Danguard, both of whom I lusted after. But Danguard was the only one that I tracked down many years later (US release). Such a great design.

Sleepy Hollow Dangard

Two In One??
Hahaha! Dave, you're totally right about the mislabeling, and I never stopped for a second to question the packaging.
The Dangard ST toy is totally not a transformer, but they went and stuffed it into the category by drawing a Sleepy Hollow version Dangard, LOL.

Nice pics and review as usual.
