Unicorn Gundam - Unicorn Mode

What a difference!

Those panel lines make the difference between an unfinished-looking Gundam model, and an amazing, dynamic figure. You did a great job adding them, and they turned my feelings about the design and the toy around 180 degrees.

no kidding. most of all the

no kidding. most of all the mobile suits coming out look so plain without panel lining. i wanted to buy some of the exclusives like he guncannon, but looking at it without panel lines, i decied to pass. i love this design, but the lack of finish makes me frown. come on, bandai!

love unicorn gundam

i love the design of unicorn gundam :) I'm pretty ok without the panel line. But I wish bandai will give some marking in this toy. Otherwise it does looks bland.

Thanks everyone.I usually

Thanks everyone.I usually don't like to mod my toys in any way, because it does decrease the value of the toy. But with the Unicorn Gundam, the need to add a little extra something to the figure overcame my need to keep the figure in mint condition.

Rupertvalero- I know what you mean about these figures needing to be complete, paint and all; especially if you are shelling out some mad cash for the Tamashii web exclusives. I would not dare put a marker to those. I wonder what Bandai's reasoning is for not doing the panel lines on Robot Spirits line.

no kidding. im a decent customizer, but i don't want to mess up the great detail like on nozzles and thrusters on my Nu gundam and unicorn. you are right, for the top dollar, we should get more out of it like the great attention to detail and finish we get from Robot Damashii evangelions.

Unicorn Gundam

This Gundam is the reason that I started to order stuff from Japan. The design is striking and unique, I really like the white color for this mobile suit, and that it doesn't make use of the more common Gundam colors (blue, yellow and red).

I like this thing so much that I bought two MG model kits, the titanium version and the new (not Katoki) master grade.

Sadly I wasn't able to get the GFF Unicorn Gundam, because of it's price.

This looks like a good figure, but suffers a bit for not having more painted detail. You did a great job with the panel lining, it really brings out the details of the figure.

RupertValero- I have not

RupertValero- I have not handled a Robot Damashii Eva, but they do look pretty good. I might just have to look into getting one , as I don't have an Eva units in my collection anymore. I have also wanted to check out the Soul of Chogokin Spec Eva units (What can I say, I am a sucker for toys with removeable armor).

mikespiegel- Thanks. I am a bit jealous of your Unicorn Gundam collection. The Unicorn Gundam is a great design. It brings a fresh perspective to the Gudnam look, while still keeping it's bonds to the source material. I am with you on the GFF Unicorn Gundam. While I would llove to get one, it is a little past the price point that I am comfortable spending on a toy.

Thank you

Thank you, I felt quite proud when I was able to get the titanium Unicorn Gundam, If only I could spare some time to finish building it (the mobile suit it's completely finished, just the rest of the accesories to go).

There was also the GFF Next Generation Unicorn Gundam, which I was about to buy until I found out that it couldn't switch to it's Unicorn mode.
