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.

DABAN Review: 1/144 HGUC MSN-001 Delta Gundam (DABAN)

So yeah, HGUC MSN-001 Delta Gundam came before the earlier released HGUC Delta Plus kit. I loved Hyaku-Shiki from the Zeta Gundam series but I don’t want to pick the released kit due to it was released in mid-2000 and I don’t have much faith/liking to the kits made in that period.

Honestly, I haven’t worked on a gold-plated kit before. I preferably don’t want to but I want to complete the Gundam Unicorn HGUC line, so this would be my current exception.

The big question most of us had was how are the runners constructed. Key word being ‘undergate’. Well I am glad to inform everyone that, yup, these runners are undergated. Yes, Daban pulled it well enough.
