So this may sound like Inspector Gadget, but there was a cartoon about a guy with a robotic arm which would sometimes turn into a blaster or a laser cutter or something useful, but I can't remember much more than that... It may have taken place in a desert (ice or sand) again can't be sure.

It wasn't Japanese; it was either American or English.

    Are you sure you can't remember anything else? That description seems quite broad May 1, 2015 at 0:04
  • Can you remember anything about the art style? Were all the characters humans? May 1, 2015 at 3:17
  • Sorry - can't remember much more - They WERE all humans if I remember correctly, but I think the main character sometimes lost control of his arm and he had to use a certain item, like it was cursed or something??? Sorry I can't be much more help :/

Is it like this question? It sounds very similar. The answer to that question was "The body electric".

You might be thinking of the English dub of Trigun.

Dark Horse cover of "Trigun" issue #1

The main character, Vash the Stampede, had a cybernetic prosthetic left arm that hid a pistol/submachine gun:

In a few scenes where he lost control of himself, his right arm would turn into a powerful organic laser cannon:

Vash's right arm has shaped the "angel arm" cannon, which looks like a life-sized figure in white, complete with wings, containing a glowing golden orb and outlined in blue energy filaments
