    Trust me I got it when it first came out, the only thing different is the color. They called it the "Unicorn" version, but it is just an off white and pinkish color change.

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    I am actually enthusiastic about this kit. It looks really good and Bandai has come a long way since the MG Unicorn Gundams. So, here's hoping this Unicorn is higher then the old MGs. I will not compare this to the RG Zeta, because unlike a others, I never really had a issue with mine. Well, aside from the v-fin, I did have trouble with transforming it to waverider mode however; I have trouble just transforming simple transformers. Lol

    You're just like me. The simple crap is beyond me at times but quantum physics is easy.

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    Reviews are out and this thing looks amazing. Trying really hard not to add it to the stash. Anybody have it and built it? Are the reviews to be believed?

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    Mine just came in and I'm glad that I pre-ordered as by all account, it seems to be a solid build. Problem now is that I have to wait till Oct for the water decal. Will have to see if there's anything you have to apply during the build. If not, I will just paint, build, gloss coat and line. Then wait for the water decal before the final flat coat.

    Mine just got here today. I'll probably do a loose build before taking it apart to paint. Will let you know.

    Might take until September, but I got the RG Unicorn pre-ordered. Bandai, if you got a P-bandai kit for a Full Armor/Green frame kit... Take all of my money right now.

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    Has anyone painted the V fin gold? If so, what gold and from who? I was thinking maybe the Hyaku Shiki Gold from Mr. Color, but at the same time, may want something a bit more semi gloss, and shiny. Suggestions?

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    I have it painted gold on mine. This is just model Master chrome, painted with a tamiya clear yellow. Then painted it over with a semi gloss clear.

    Aclad might work or Tamiya Gold Leaf.

    Thanks for the reply. Kinda hard to tell how bright or dark it is from the picture. I will try that combo. I am also thinking about mixing some gold leaf with a tiny bit of yellow or clear yellow to increase the brilliance.

    Use a junk kit or some plastic spoons to test your paint. In fact, try making some paints samples of all those suggestions for a comparison.
