G-Exes GB [Gage-ing Builder] + Head Collection

The WMS-GEX1, better known as the G-Exes is a custom mobile suit which Woolf Enneacle commissioned from the Madorna Mobile Suit Workshop in replacment his former mobile suit, RGE-B790CW Genoace Custom. Personally, I would prefer E-Exes over Genoace, but somehow I could help thinking of Transformers Ultra Magnus whenever E-Exes appears in-front of me. 

So far there isn't any 1/100 scale Gunpla of G-Exes so the action figure cum game GB Gage-ing Builder for Gundam Age is as close as you can get. It's trademark of Woolf Enneacle, the 'White Wolf' that all his MS come entirely white and bearing his red wolf insignia, which can be seen on the shield of G-Exes. Everything is cool about Woolf Enneacle for been the ace pilot at the earlier part of TV series Gundam Age and eventually took a mentor role and sidekick of the Gundam. 

The toy came with some parts painted with some panel lining too. The toy is a bit plastic looking so top coat could help improve the texture and serves as a protection to the plastic from yellowing. I bought the first set @ AmiAmi when it was on sale and another for the son to pay when the whole series of Gundam Age GB at great discount from local store. 

It's a hardy toy that can withstand rough play by children. The shortcoming of the toy would be those exposed screws, which luckily were all situated on the rear. A G-Exes GB card is also included and the G-Exes head display was a gift from Stanley. Another gimmick of GB Gage-ing Builder toy are that all the limbs and head can be swapped between MS, even with enemy unit. 

G-Exes Head is a gift from Stanley 'Arigato' and it's from Bandai mask collection Gundam head Collection Vol.1 anime PVC figure, released in Dec 2011. It came as a finished product, all painted with penal lines head model on a base. I'm not sure of the scaling for the head however, I did have some fun fitting it to the G-Exes GB like a mask, which kind of look comical. LOL

the white on white color scheme is so minimalistic, that you only can either love it or hate it... the MS are usually colorful and in that sense, i guess it should be kinda shocking for the Gundam audience, the first appearance of the Unicorn...

this toy doesn’t like bad as it comes from factory, but obviously the touch of paint gives it more realism and better contrast... it looks sturdy and it must be, the interchangeable parts gimmick reminds me of the B•Daman and Medabots action figures, it’s a very nice toy !!!... =)

G-Exes is somehow similar to Hyaku Shinki, like a sidekick or mentor to Gundam. I agreed that fans would totally love or hate it. I belong to the "love it" party. Beside, I always like the Gundam lookalike and not actually Gundam type of MS. Seriously, I like the head sculpt of this MS. I too find the totally white concept a bit too bare and that the reason I did the touch up which I'm pretty satisfied. I kind of like it been an action figure cos it more hardy to play with. I stand nicely with my other MG Gunpla.
