I went the longest time not liking Geno Saurers, but then I finally came to my senses. I got this one about a year after it came out, when they miraculously became affordable to the masses (Thanks, Toy-Wave!). These guys aren’t really white, but more of an off-white “bone” color that my camera—awesome as it is—can’t seem to capture. This was part of the limited set for the 2005 Dinosaur Expo at the Tokyo Science Museum.
When I discovered that you could put the cannons on in place of the crab claws (aka “X-breakers”), I liked this guy a lot more. Actually the claws aren’t so bad, but the guns really do it for me. The painted Raven (uber villain brat from the Chaotic Century anime) figure is from a gashapon set I got from YJ. I also tinted the eye pieces and painted the teeth (poorly), for more contrast.
Geno Breaker, in mini form! I don’t normally get into the action figures Hasbro made, but I got this one accidentally, plus I’m on a Geno kick, so here he is. I actually like him better without all the extra equipment, and the head spear reminds me of a cockatiel. Pics 1–4 are right out of the package. Pics 5–8 are after a much needed touchup paint job. #9 is of the whole “family”!
