LEO NPD VER. LEO???

After making the Megaman X Leo NPD kitbash, I was left with a ton of spare parts left over, so I decided to make the Leo NPD using spare parts and painting it OG Leo colors.  After finishing the paint work, I felt like it resembled Master Chief (or green biker dude from X2?)  a bit, though it wasn’t my intention at all.  Perhaps someone will make a more faithful rendition?  I am expecting a lot of creative kitbashes to come from using this kit with all the unique head and shoulder options that come with the kit.

This is sort of a mini-review I didn’t have planned.  I was messing around with this kit and the result turned out better than I had expected!  Next week, there will be a more traditional full review of the Gundam Wing variety.  Kit review (for the Leo NPD) and build details following the image gallery. Enjoy!
