    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    If they think it will make money you bet your A$$ they will make a RG IBO kit. But I still think we need more ZEON stuff. We have 1 ZAKU 1 Sinanju 1 Z'Gok and that is it, well technically 2 ZAKU one green and one for Char, but really? Come on it is one ZAKU. So 3 ZEON suits out of 24 kits? Well with the unicorn it is now 25 kits. And ZEON only gets 3!!!! Yes their are a few others. But they are just recolors of existing ZEON kits, and all P-Bandai so not easily accessible to the general public. (Yes mass production type Z'Gok I'm talking about you)

    List of things to do today. 1. Get a sword. 2. Name it Kindness. 3 Kill people with Kindness.

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    I'm not optimistic about the RG Unicorn; RG's -- seems like as a rule -- are fragile, save for a select few. Bandai tried to go big and made the Zeta transformable, and that turned out to be a disaster. But unfortunately, from what I've seen very recently of the RG Unicorn, I think it and the Zeta are going to be contending for "Worst RG kit" because it looks like the Unicorn will also transform... Now, don't get me wrong, the Unicorn and its "brothers" are cool-looking, but as kits they seem to do better either in HG form with separate kits for unicorn and destroy mode or as gigantic PG's where there's enough "space" to appropriately transform it. This is just my opinion, but as an owner of the FA Unicorn Ver. Ka, I can honestly say it's one of the more disappointing kits I've come across. It's a terrible floppy mess, not to mention about as poseable as a brick. The only good thing about it is all the weapons it comes with...as they make great additions to more deserving Mobile Suits.

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    Ya it looks promising, but you did notice that they had one transformed and one not. So like my Zeta maybe they transformed one and left it alone and then got a second for Unicorn mode.

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    ^ Agreed. I'm almost wondering if they'll make it a nightmare to transform on purpose, so that way, instead of going through the pain of transforming it, people will buy two and keep one in unicorn mode and one in destroy mode. Lol.

    It looks nice. Also I can't tell if it's just the lighting or what but is there 2 slightly different shades of white for the armor?

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    Yes there should be two shades. Like the NU Gundam one is a bit off white or very light gray the other is white. But the Off white parts are only here and there around the moving parts.

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    The RG line is great as long as you don't change your pose or transform all the time. They have better detail and articulations that some of the older MG kits and it also does not take up as much room to display. Going to get one soon as pre-order is up. Will also get the ZZ ver ka as the original MG is so old.

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    I plan on getting this kit or the P Bandai (Green Psycho Frame) predictable... Going to gluing all the parts to make a permanent destroy mode.

    I'll get a HG normal Unicorn to compliment this.

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    Hopefully they will make a RG banshee that is not P bandai...

    I forgot to check HLJ for a few days and it turns out that the Unicorn was up for pre-order but now is order stop. Manage to get a couple from Hobbysearch but not the initial release version (no idea what it is other than difference box art). Check Hobbysearch if you want to pre-order one.

    Re: RG 1/144 Gundam Unicorn!

    Anyone see the P-Bandai Zeta? Change of color, add 35 bucks onto price. WTF. Wonder if they improved the frame/transformation at all, or if its literally just another color....
