    1. Yeah I don't get it, why not release norn reguler instead

      But then again its bandai we're talking about so deal with it maybe..

    2. My answer is: they actually changed stuff here and there. See the bend of the knee on the second to last picture? Yeah, this would be impossible with all the iterations of the Unicorn. My wildest guess would be that they learn from the Perfect Grade.

      What you talking about? It's just the old ver ka. Banshee with orange psycho frame.

      What is the new thing you saw?

      Can you be more specific and compare it to the old banshee ver ka?

    4. The old banshee ver ka had green psycoframe.

      I think that kind of angle just gives an illusion that it can fully bend the knee into full degree while in reality it's not, just the same articulation as the MG Unicorn OVA version.

  2. Really Bandai? No claw and beam gun? Without those, Banshee isn't Banshee anymore

  3. Calling it now, it's gonna be the poorest-sold kit of the year.

    1. "Waaaah, nobody buys our retail products anymore, let's move everything to P-Bandai!".
      Nobody will buy your retail products if it's shitty, Bandai. Just give your fans what they want, and it will sell.

    2. I don't think so, there are some people like me that prefeer the novel look of the banshee without the claw and the arm beam gun

      Delete
    3. You know you can just not equip those, right?

      Delete
    4. Yes they can be unequipped from the P-Bandai release to make it look more like the novel version. However it will a)not be a regular release. b)not be exact to the novel.

  4. I think they should have made this a pbandai just like the original MG Banshee Ver.ka with green psycho frame (late 2012). I think it's unnecessary to mass produce this kit when 2012's Banshee has the same accessories, plus the railgun and the claw, but minus the beam magnum. I think in general, if you are a fan of Gundam Unicorn and build MGs, you'd probably already bought a variant of the Banshee since it's release in 2012.

  5. Jesus Christ this is not even milking anymore. The cow is dead, this is salvaging the cow's corpse to see which part is edible.

  6. Nothing to see here folks, just another remold of a not so good model kit

  7. Where is the Revive Zaku II and GM Bandai? It's Christmas, give some good news for once. Instead get another one of these overrated and overdone Unicorns.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hang on, retail?
    This is what I think P-Bandai should be fore tbh but whatever floats Bandai's boat I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  9. And second question is: it will be better than old ver.ka or not?

    ReplyDelete
  10. so this doesnt come with the claw ?? That's stupid

    ReplyDelete
  11. ...OK. I like it, but... ok. This is better than the anime version in my opinion, but it could have been p-bandai and i'll be fine with it

    ReplyDelete
  12. What's the point? The MG Banshee(OVA Version) already came with a beam magnum and shield (you'll have to find the MG Unicorn(OVA Version) instruction manual to build it. They're spare parts)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, MG Banshee OVA doesnt come with beam magnum rifle parts. Only the shield as leftover parts.

      Delete
  13. I guess this is Bandai's way of saying we're not getting a Unicorn 2.0

    ReplyDelete
  14. Are people really complaining about a retail release not being P-Bandai?!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Because we already got a good-enough MG Banshee in 2012. This is simply a color variant of the MG Unicorn Gundam with a new horn. Hell, this was already released in P-Bandai a few years back, only with a green psycoframe.

  15. The only good thing from this version? The gold v fin and mask is actually GOLD PLATED. Not some crapy gold plastic.

    1. ya, but Banshee v fin still need sticker on the bottom part

      Delete
    2. Yes,I want to believe they will make gold plated for v-fin and mask like they did with previously P-Bandai Final Battle ver which is just Banshee ver Ka with green psycho frame. That and waterslide decal. Only the good points to buy this MG.

  16. Would I be naive in hoping that they fix the flimsy inner frame (especially the legs, and general all around transformation mode). Because I have the OVA version, loved the looks of Banshee, but disliked the flimsiness of it. Hopefully this one has better build

    ReplyDelete
  17. They should have fixed the flimsiness from the OVA version, right? Was I being too naive? if they do, I would consider to buy it to replace my OVA ver. Just because I love banshee

    ReplyDelete
  18. What’s the difference between this and the old release of the Banshee? Didn’t it also have the standard orange frame and the arm parts?

    ReplyDelete
  19. What is the point of this? This is pretty dumb. They could have made an MG Kshatriya instead.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Are you people serious? Back when the banshee Norn was a P-Bandai everyone was annoyed but now that we've got essentially the same release as a non P-Bandai you're all whining that it's pointless...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Are you blind? This isn’t the Banshee Norn. This is just the MG Unicorn OVA version colored black with a Banshee head. No new backpack/shield extension, just a pointless Unicorn variant; the only redeeming factor is the water slides.

      Delete
    2. It's not pointless for anyone who likes the banshee norn but doesn't want to pay P-Bandai prices. It's literally the banshee norn except for like 2 things. Bandai has played both sides. They've released something that will please both the readers of the novel and those who wanted a regular release banshee norn.

  21. Why? Just why? The MG Unicorn mode was very flimsy from the beginning and every Gunpla fan has been begging for a MG 2.0 when the RG came out. Instead you just release a P-Bandai Unicorn variant and give it orange psycoframe. One of the laziest kits Bandai has put out for retail release next to the Tristan.

  22. i do see another difference besides the chest, the dark blue v fin crest in the ova is gold in the novel, but i also recall the novel version had a purple chin as opposed to the ova's orange

    ReplyDelete
  23. Isn't it's time for a revived Unicorn kits in HG and MG?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Looking at the RG banshee norn now that it's released, it actually has the extra parts to make this.
