bandai really is making this pretty interesting^^
hmm. so the ver.ka is the novel version?

im not 100% sure. all i know for sure is that the banshee in the novel looks just like the unicorn, except for the different v-fin and the black color.

its supposed to be a lion XD
the whole theme behind gundam unicorn is the french tapistry that we saw in episode 1, called "a mon seul désir" ("my only desire").
it features a lion (the banshee), a unicorn (the unicorn gundam) and two women, one of which is handing the other woman a box (probably symbolizing the box of laplace). but thats just my own interpretation of this

Ver. Ka is the Novel version. (it doesnt have vulcans except in destroy mode)

Ver Ova has vulcans in unicorn mode.

Sucks that the HG Banshee doesn't have clear parts for its Psycho frame. I guess it's a good thing I only consider MG or at least 1/100 No Grades.

Hmmm, I'm 50/50 on this...

On one side its great they gave the Banshee a different weapons layout than Unicorn. They look cool, the rifle looks like one of the Bits from the Nu and Hi-Nu Gundam. While the other is a giant claw, but....are these weapons practical???

Just hear me out,
How is this rifle going to measure up to the beam magnum, would it even work like it? And the Claw, I'm assuming it only work in NT-D mode. Compare to the beam saber I can't see how effective its going to be in combat. Then there is he fact its not going to have a shield, so it really has to count on the I-Field to cover all defense. Last but not least, how is it gonna use its beam sabers on the forearms or grab its two on the back with is stuff in the way. I guess it can disassemble the weapons to free his hands.

That's about it, like the gimmick just not sure how it will work in a fight.

yeah, but we will most likely have to wait until may 2012 to find out how its using its armaments^^ but im pretty sure the banshee will make a brief appearance tomorrow or MAYBE even show off its own NT-D (like the unicorn in EP1).

Tbh, those weapons of Banshee's look more like from the 00 universe or Wing universe (or both). It's not very UC-ish.

take another look, both arm-sabres can still fold out even with the brick-claw and funnel-gun

The inspiration behind this revised weaponaries for the Banshee is most likely based on images of a lion, which is also the imagery for the Banshee as a counterpart for the Unicorn as well based on the medieval tapestry shown in epsiode 1.

The claw is obviously the head of a lion and the foldable rifle is the tail.

I gotta be the only one who looks at the Banshee and says "what's the difference?"

Not to say I know much about how to tell apart from being fake or real...but, I'm fairly certain that is the real deal.
