Nothing can stop, the Danboardastator!

Here I am, hijacking Mecha Guignol for my own insidious means once again. OHOHOHO!

The good news is, I finally got around to doing this review. The bad news is, my camera chose this photo session to be more horrible than usual.

The Danboard Gestalt. (full stop) Which can be achieved by getting 5 Revoltech Danboards, dismembering them and re-membering them into an abomination of awesome.

Anyway, onto the review proper, I’ll keep this short. Like, really short.

The Danboard Gestalt is hella taller than you might expect. Especially in it’s “full head-on” mode. As you can see by the top pic, he’s as tall as Masterpiece Grimlock.

Points of articulation are plentiful but nigh useless, as the Revoltech joints simply have a really hard time holding up all that weight. This is one reason you’ll probably want to pull off any extraneous arms as they’re not only cumbersome but add slightly to the weight of DG’s limbs. With some finagling and cheating, it should be no problem getting some nice poses for the camera though.

There are a huge number of play options available to you when you do Gestalt Danboard. For instance, you can give him a hammer hand by sticking a Danboard head onto the end of a forearm. Or grab one of the extra Revoltech joints you’re left with and make a nun-chuck out of Danboard’s leftover arms. You can even have a paired down version like so:

With a shield:

In short. If you manage to get your hands on 5 Danboards (or even better yet, 6), and you’re not some dirty low life scalper, then make yourself a Danboard Gestalt. I think it’s the law (in 52 states and none of the others).
