Another 1/100 custom, once again based on an existing Build Fighters custom suit. I’ve never actually watched G Gundam, but I’ve done a bit of reading up on it so I know what generally happens in-show. I knew what series Master Gundam was from instantly when I saw Master Chinan’s glorious entrance in the last episode of Build Fighters; this suit’s sheer badassary during that battle was enough to make me take to the suit and its unique color scheme instantly.
A part of the same batch in which I picked up the iGear Hench and MP-10 Optimus Prime, this Generations Warpath was quite a random little figure that happened to land in my lap. I had never taken much interest in the Generations line, but I heard a lot of the toys that came out of it were either a hit or miss.
I’ve never been a proponent or supporter of knock off toys and third party brands, so I usually stick to authentic products. Third parties can be useful for some spare accessories or missing parts and whatnot, but very rarely have I ever actually taken interest in actual non-brand items. Given those facts, it should be unsurprising that this is my first time experiencing a third-party Transformer toy.
This Hench figure from iGear (a very well-known third party Transformers producer) is basically Brawn from G1. I only got him in a big ‘ol Transformers bundle set recently that came with two third party figures and the actual Masterpieces in the batch that I wanted.
As a kid before the Master Grades came out, I’ve always coveted the NG 1/100 Gundam Seed kits. Unfortunately I never got around to them, but then I didn’t need to since I already have all the MG versions. However, when Robo Toy Fest rolled around last time, I couldn’t resist grabbing this nigh-complete built kit for a mere $5. I figured it would do well for some paint practice and and custom work.
