Why is it that the Japanese color figures seem so much cooler? Is it just the novelty factor, or are the color schemes actually more appealing to the eye than their American counterparts? In Ranger's case, I think it is the latter. Originally I wanted him just because he was essentially a repaint, but upon receiving him and seeing the figure in person I think his colors work so much better than the green/pink/blue sported by Joyride.

There isn't really much more to say about this figure other than he's obviously part of Masterforce, my personal favorite of the three Japanese series. And even though he wasn't a stand out character like Metalhawk or Overlord, he definitely had a distinct personality. Almost like that of Hound in his love of nature. I also enjoy that he was Canadian (or retreated to Canada, whatever). Just a nice guy who loved his horse and got pulled into war.
Anyway, I'd love some feedback on the pictures. Honestly I really don't have a process down yet so black background pics take much, much longer than white background and I'm not sure look as good, but I'll reserve judgement for at least one more post.
C-303 Minerva! Or is it Minelba?
