MG Master Gundam English Color Guide

Bandai Master Grade MG GF13-001NHII Master Gundam English Color Guide

Master Gundam of Toho Fuhai from Mobile Fighter G Gundam anime. The Master Gundam is the main antagonist's mobile suit in the said anime series.

I haven't watched G Gundam yet so as usual, I can't really say much about this mobile suit. I found out in wikipedia however that G Gundam was directed by Yasuhiro Imagawa who was also responsible for Getter Robo Armageddon *sarcastic snicker*. Could be one reason why the Master Gundam bears a striking resemblance to Getter 1.

The reason I was being sarcastic at the mention of Getter Robo Armageddon was because I grew up watching Getter Robo G and didn't like what the new crew did with the story of Getter Robo Armageddon. Professor Saotome of the Getter franchise was one of the characters I grew up on and always perceived him to be hero, so having him turned into bad guy wasn't fun to watch. Not to mention that the plot for the said anime was just insane and I felt that they totally butchered a beloved franchise.
