    Newbie Unicorn Question

    I'm considering to get my 2nd Master Grade 1/100 kit sometime soon and I have been considering between Unicorn and Exia (Perhaps 00 Raiser instead).

    I'm curious as to how the transformation in Unicorn works. Is it just detatching parts and then reatatching them? Or do the parts actually slide into the transformation?

    I hear there are like 5 different MG Unicorn sets or something, whats the name of the one that has the best transformation method?

    First off, let me welcome you to the message board! You should introduce yourself in Members Introduction forum.

    Also, questions about what kits to get or about a specific gimmick of a kit go here, in the General Model Discussion forum.

    This forum is the Help and Feedback forum for getting help on how the Message Board works and reporting bugs and the like.

    Now, on to your questions! I can tell you that while MG Exia is a GREAT LOOKING kit, it has some stability issues. If you are going to get it, get a stand for it too. It's feet are so tiny so it's hard to get it to stand and everything on that kit moves so it can be very finicky and tricky to pose just right. The Unicorn is another story, I hear the hips and ankles can be a bit loose in Destroy Mode, I can't actually account for that claim as I have three versions of the kit, but none of them are built yet. The transformation is done by sliding the panels around, turning parts, and popping things out. I think the only thing that may need to be removed and replaced is the V-fin. again this is going by what I have seen on the net, not what I have actually built.

    Personally, given the choice between Exia, Unicorn and 00 Raiser, I would go with 00. It's a bit more stable than Exia, they fixed up quite a few of the flaws in design. I have heard mixed reports on how well it holds it's GN Sword III. Some have gotten it to stick straight out no problems, other seem to see it flop down after a few moments. but other than that, it's pretty solid.
    Until Next Time: Happy Building!

    Thanks for the tips and insight! This will definitely help me decide which one to get.

    And sorry about posting in the wrong section, wasn't entirely sure where to put it so I put it where it seemed to fit.

    Hey, that's why we're all here to help each other out and share our knowledge. It's okay to post in the wrong place from time to time, especially when you are new and nothing has been explained. So no worries on that, buddy .
