I recently stumbled upon a mint in box Murasame Liger; who also happened to be the special edition with Ruiji figure. Cute! He was a pain in the sense of painting his white mane; the mane spikes come all gold and it’s that slippery oily plastic that paint has a hard time sticking to; even enamel paint. He’s also the first zoid I fully line paneled and ugh.
That blade is ridiculous, the spring load is wicked fast and it’s so long extended my lens kept focal blurring out the Liger so I don’t have any good shots of the spring load in action. I might shoot video of it.
Worth it in the end, he looks stunning. The Hayate Liger I had since 2006 and I took him down for a dusting and then decided to panel line and gold trim him so he matches the Murasame.
I’ll have to get a Mugen Liger at some point. I love the Genesis kits, they are really nicely built even if they aren’t as hands on as previous models. Makes me more inclined to customise them; I have a Soul Tiger in my build queue I’ll tackle soon.
