    Re: BansheeNorn's WIP Thread

    Thanks man!

    I've never seen anyone really customize this kit too much, so that would be really cool to see indeed.. I'll leave that to you pro's out there! ;-)

    I figured the Banshee would be a darker colored plastic.

    Nope. These kits are all molded in the same clear plastic which gives them a transparent look. A darker shade of plastic would suit the Banshee better, but as you see, these kits aren't meant to be accurate to the anime.

    Re: BansheeNorn's WIP Thread

    ^ I was just about to mention that, after googling up these memorial clear versions. Pretty odd, the entire kit is all white clear plastic.

    Re: BansheeNorn's WIP Thread

    These kits were released to celebrate the conclusion of Gundam Unicorn and could only be obtained through participation in the Gundam UC Playback Campaign in Japan. There are 6 different Memorial kits: Unicorn Gundam (Destroy Mode), Sinanju, Kshatriya, Delta Plus, Banshee (Destroy Mode) and Full Armor Unicorn (Unicorn Mode), each limited to 500 pieces.
    This was previously a Japan release only, but now they're giving away another 175 sets to the rest of the world in the Gundam Mid Year 2014 Campaign.

    I bet if someone could get the whole set and refrain from building them. In a few years, they'd be worth a pretty penny.

    Re: BansheeNorn's WIP Thread

    Yeah. Most of these kits are kept in private collections but luckily a few have ended up on Yahoo! JAPAN. They weren't officially sold, so prices are pretty much market driven and go as low as 12,000-20,000 for the Delta Plus/Sinanju, up to 25,000-32,000 for the Unicorn/Banshee in Destroy Mode.

    @Zaku: or adding UV reactive paint or something to the Psychoframe. :D

    That, is pretty creepy looking. But awesome at the same time.

    「Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee (Destroy Mode) Memorial Clear Ver.」


    Part 1 of my build of the Banshee Memorial Clear Ver. I started the build just like I usually do with the head, torso/arms first, and I must say the clear plastic is really beautiful! Unfortunately, being so bright and clear, it's kinda hard to capture that beauty well with my camera. It also makes reading the numbers on the runners difficult sometimes. It's like my eyes can't focus and after a while it hurts my eyes to look at all that white, haha.

    That plastic certainly does look great. Do nub marks show badly on it?

    Re: BansheeNorn's WIP Thread

    Nub marks are much less obvious due to the clear plastic. Your eyes just get overwhelmed by all the brightness and hue of whites, lol.
