Cracked-out RTM dub name: Gus
Headmasters animated series
- Voice actor: Kazumi Tanaka
When Scorponok’s Decepticons returned to planet Master, Kirk served as the leader of the resistance group that formed to oust them. They met with little success, until the Autobot Headmasters arrived on the planet in pursuit of the Decepticons. Chromedome arranged a meeting with Kirk to formulate a new plan, intending to corral the Decepticons amidst the cloudy peaks of a nearby mountain range. The plan was put into motion when the villains attacked a city, but backfired when the clouds did nothing but provide the Decepticons with cover, which only increased their advantage. During the firefight, Kirk’s fighter craft was shot down and Chromedome believed him dead; when the battle was concluded with a Decepticon victory, Kirk hauled himself from the wreckage of his craft. Chromedome apologised for the recklessness of his plan, but Kirk admitted that he was to blame too for willingly going along with it.
(Note: For whatever reason, Kirk’s color model is completely different from his toy, decorated with green, blue, yellow, grey and white, where the toy was grey and red.)
TV Magazine Masterforce prologue
Some time later, after the Decepticons had been forced off of Earth and a larger war began based around use of advanced technology from Planet Master, Chromedome and the other Headmasters took it upon themselves to train Kirk and the other Headmaster Warriors in the use of their powers.
- Kirk (Headmaster Warrior, 1987)
- Available exclusively in Japan, Kirk transforms from a grey and red robot into a head, in which mode he can connect to any of the larger Headmaster toys. He goes for ludicrous sums of money on the secondary market, to say nothing of the super-rare, entirely white version of the figure which was only available in certain Japanese toy stores.
