Secret Base King Walder Skull Brain (green)   Leave a comment

The early Secret Base fight figures were heavily inspired by the aesthetics of the Henshin Cyborg line, more specifically by the Walders.  The King Walders were the enemies of the Cyborgs, and were clear colored figures with vinyl guts instead of mechanical innards.  The Walder like included three evil original character costumes in vinyl, and are some of the most iconic vintage Japanese figures.  It was only fitting, then, that some of the earliest colorways for the Skull Brain, the second Secret Base sculpt, were directly inspired by the King Walder figures.  I got the green version in the mail today, and it is an awesome figure.  The clear vinyl head and colors of the inner head mimic the colors of the green Walder and his Plantman evil costume, and look great.  The outer head covering is actually made of super soft vinyl, which I was not expecting, but is completely awesome.

Skull Brains look best duking it out with Skull Bees…
