Does that solve the articulation or transformation issues? For me, the HGUC line seems more suited for me. You'll recall that I like the 00 MG line because it totally captures the feel of the Gundams more strongly than the HG line, but in UC, the HGUC line does an excellent job of reminding me how awesome the mobile suits are, and is lighter on the pocketbooks. I'm not a hardcore Gunpla collector by any stretch, so I pick and choose carefully to ensure I get the kits I really like and not spend on kits I might regret buying later

You don't have to apologise to anyone if the local forumtroll misunderstands you...
I think you're well aware that suiton's positive contributions are few if any, so pay him no mind.
Anyway, like the others say, a destroy mode FA unicorn will surely come, the question is if you're willing to wait for what could be some time...
In unrelated news, it's is 6:23 AM where I live atm, and I cant.fucking.sleep. fml

being a unicorn fan that almost collect different types of scales kits & figurines, for MG size the best is still GFFN Unicorn. MG Unicorn transformation makes the kit flimsly
HG kit is still looks good in terms of proportion even though i have Super HCM Unicorn which i have yet to open it
Robot damashii....smaller & if you want to play with it as the articulation is a lot better than HG
SD well....cute i say
I also have the GFF Full Armor Unicorn Destroy mode which yet to open also

I don't have any experience with Gundam product other than the model kits, but the GFF FA Unicorn always interested me. I would love to know what you think about it^^

On an unrelated note, if HLJ keeps up this super slow pace I'm gonna look for a different store to order my models from... It's been a week since I ordered my MG Jesta, they took my money within 24 hours of my purchase and they still haven't even send it out yet. Or did I miss some sort of Japanese holiday? O_o

damn, that's tough. But for me this means that I haven't slept at all last night. I had to wake up for class, which started at 8:45, and figured those two short hours of sleep I might have gotten would only tire me out. So yeah, I feel fine right now *twitch twitch*

Also: Nice to see another dutchy here, where are you from?

Several posts have been deleted and if you guys don't drop this pointless argument, you will get banned regardless of any warnings you may have received in the past.

Enough is enough.

^ Nice comparison between HG & RG Destiny. Just like I thought, the HG's feet look a lot better. What were Bandai people smokin' when they made the mold? Those feet almost ruined a nice kit.

That said I'm waiting for RG Destiny Deactive or Heine. Not a fan of the traditional color (There's MG Destiny EBM for that).

The harch reality of life, unless you take 2 weeks vacation

But even with vacation there is little time to do gunpla construction

Alot of dutch speaking people here it seems. Kan het niveau alleen maar ten goede komen

Anybody noticed that the powerpack for perfect strike which come with the new MG strike need to be painted white? That's a letdown

Looking at the destinies side by side (RG and HG) the HG looks way cleaner. I'm not too big a fan of armor riddled with panellines, thought that was more a late '90s, early '00s thing...
