  2. Please oh please be nontransforming. I would happily buy a unicorn mode and a destroy mode.

  4. This was obviously going to be made since the big Gundam statue in Japan is Unicorn and because Bandai loves to release an excessive number of model kits based on this series. I think this is exciting for fans but at the same time it is very scary since it is very likely that Bandai is going to release many of the variations through their Premium Bandai, Online Hobby Shop service.

  6. I'm not surprised by this at all. It was merely just a matter of when this kit would be announced. I'm not a real big fan of RG kits (due to their frailty and large amounts of tiny parts) but if this kit is going the full transformation route I'm staying clear.

    Bandai couldn't get the MG version to transform without making it a mess- whats the hope the smaller 1/144 will do better? I'd be pleasantly surprised if it wasn't the case... but given their track record...

  9. I hope Bandai release a green frame triple gatling gun shields version as a non p-bandai. I sure that this kit come with only one shield and no gatling gun like sinunju's bazuka.

  10. I'm both excited and wary of this, I love the Unicorn as one of my favorites, but if we've seen anything of transforming Unicorn kits, it's that it's definitely not easy, and now we're doing it with 1/144 scale and the RG pre-molded inner frame, that just screams fragile. [-(

  11. if it using transforming sequence as the MG does have (which have a not so good rumor) then we're like holding a hand grenade that can explode anytime

    it would be better if bandai separate them into unicorn mode and destroy mode with normal RG price (2700 yen)

  12. Hope that they dont reuse mk-2 frame like the sinanju

  13. Man the expectations are so rock bottom for this kit. So when it's out its either plastic grenade number 3 or a good kit. I wonder which it'll be.

  14. So do you guys think they gonna use cross inject plastic for the V fin

  15. RG barbatos lupus rex will be nice!!

  16. Looks good. I dont expect much since rg kits are fragile, but i hope it will be better than sinanju.

  17. I'm seeing a transformable RG Nu in the horizon..

  18. Wow! It really does fully transform. Can't wait for the final release.

    ReplyDelete
  19. So no gatling gun with this kit. T_T I hope the gap between arm and shield can be adjust. It look too far with out gun attach to it.

  20. Is it going to have the RE: 0096 decals?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Man, with every new image of it I'm getting more and more hyped. The description on 1999.co.jp boasts stability in both Unicorn and Destroy mode along with the Advanced MS Framework. Can't wait for its release.

  22. hope the hyper bazooka compatible with rg sinanju

  23. Still waiting for that RG Banshee announcement, and the P-Bandai Norn expansion pack.

  24. The box art seems a bit boring for RG, it feels like it lack something, why don't make the standing destroy mode back-to-back with unicorn mode, like in ver. Ka artwork for example.

  25. Hopefully the transformation is easy like the mg and not finicky like the rg zeta

    ReplyDelete
  26. Completely new inner frame looks pretty sweet! I hope it comes with a pre transformed V fun like the MG. I broke that thing just trying to get it to open...can't wait! Still need to finish RG astray and NG Barbatos though.

  27. I've seen the review on YouTube, the transformation is very similar to MG and articulation is less fragile than RG Zeta or RG Sinanju, believe it
