Lol...it's just over the top. But I like it!

That action base a special edition? I am planning to get the FA Unicorn as well, but I can't find any info on that base...

Those are the most overkill weapons a gundam can carry with its arms. Still, it looks badass in a weird way. Just imagined if Unicorn use all those weapons at the same time in battle, the opponents would become cosmic dust .

I wish they'd have made some sort of locking mechanism to have it hold the weapons horizontally, instead of aiming at the ground. Still looks awesome though.

When are you going to add the glow in the dark effect?

im not surprised. dalong owns every gunpla kit in existence :P well, almost all of them, i think he is missing most of the SD stuff.
but im sure we will see a MG banshee. im pretty certain we will get it after the next episode of unicorn, just like they did it with the delta plus: first it briefly appeared in the OVA, after that we got a HG and after the episode in which it was actually in combat they released the MG.

the effect is actually rather faint and not easy to make out. i blame the terrible lighting in my apartment XD i think the pigments dont get enough light to charge up properly.
however, because the pigments have a very bright yellow-green color they make the psycho frame pieces look a lot more vivid in the daylight! it still looks like the original color, its just a little more intense^^ that alone made it worth it!
the shields glow a lot though because the psycho frame pieces in them are very big.

So how come we haven't had any of the usual crew posting this crap?!

HG 1/144 G-Bouncer

HG 1/144 Gundam AGE-2 - Double Bullet

HG 1/144 Zeidora


And a little something for Nike, Exia Rasier!

That Zeidora looks like a brother/sister of EVA 02.

Wow, I didn't notice that.

I admit the first thing I thought of when I saw it was Bionicle.

How about you placed the FA Unicorn aganist the EX-S side by side to compare the size and bulk ?

And for those interested, the FA Unicorn is now in major retail stores (i.e. Toy R Us) from where I am selling at US$130. It sure weighs a ton.

i dont think so. the exia wasnt designed for that bulky backpack, its way too skinny for that in my opinion!
the custom sword looks good though.

It looks as if they're supposed to be there, yeah. Then again, 00 with a drive-cone on it's back would look 'tarded.

Zeidora reminds me a bit of the reborns gundam, mostly the chest

here we go:


the unicorn is taller with all the stuff added to it but the Ex-S is a lot wider all by itself. the unicorn still looks a little skinny :P but all the stuff added to the arms helps a lot!

$130 is a good price though in my opinion. including shipping and customs fees i paid 130€ for it which is about $170.

Overall, for 8000 yen, the Ex-S still held it's own aesthetic value. The FA unicorn just looks messy compared to the Ex-S. But the armaments of the FA Unicorn has their worth when it comes down to kitbashing.
