Review: 1/144 HGUC RX-0 Unicorn Gundam. Unicorn Mode and NewType-Destroyer

The first kit out of the Gundam Unicorn series, the eponymous Gundam Unicorn was certainly delayed from DABAN’s queue, but here it is.

For some fans of GunPla a series’ story and characters can make and break the appeal of its franchise. Gundam Unicorn was initially released as a Manga series in Japan written by Harutoshi Fukui. Its story and character posed as non-issues in attracting audience, thanks to Hajime Katoki taking point of the mechanical designs. Bandai marketing betted big on the model kits as they launched the Gundam Unicorn line long before the commencement of the OVA in March 12, 2010.

The MG Unicorn Ver. Ka was released a bit earlier, attracted a lot of attention brought about the attention to detail it gave (aside from the sheer amount of decals) and its unconventional transformation gimmick. Even though these gimmicks was traded for the limitation of articulation.

Well some of those limitation won’t be felt much in the kit, after all this is just a HGUC release that uses the 2009 HGUC standard. So let’s get it going then.

Let’s talk about Bandai’s HG Standard.

HG 1/144s. (L-R) Spiegel, Geara Zulu (Guards Type), AGE-1 Normal, Banshee Norn, Jesta.

The kits above are just some of the 1/144 HGs over the years. Strictly speaking, the 1/144 Spiegel is a HG class 1/144, There is simply no HG 1/144 back then (1994 release). They (the HGs) are mostly reserved for 1/100 scales. But even for 1994 standards till the EW HG 1/144 release. The Spiegel is years ahead in terms of plastic/color separation in its time. Why so? Look at the foot unit, usually they are just mono colored red or whatever the foot color is. Just one color. Spiegel has two colors for its foot unit! (Well Dragon Gundam does too). Anyway, the main objective of this blog entry is to discuss the current HG standard release and how it differs then and how it is done today. Of course there are some kit/designers are just too stubborn to follow standard. Some deviants did well, some are just okay. So let’s get it on so that you’ll know what I’m blabbering about!

So what makes it a Standard release you ask?
