Holy crud, some parts of the armor look (and feel) QUITE delicate. If you exercise even little force when separating them from the runners, one can't help but to sweat a little and pray for not to screw up.
This thing comes with a monster sheet of decals and drytransfer markings, also, the psychoframe parts surprised me with their color. Yeah, they are pink, but no photo makes them justice to the real thing once you see it with your own eyes.

Also... 4 beam sabers? whoa, but only 2 translucent beam saber parts. Bleh.

Anyways, seems like a pretty good model, also, I'm of the opinion that the Unicorn mode looks more like a GM that doesn't suck lol
Careful with the v-fin, don't try to transform it more than once. I broke it on my first time transforming it back to horn mode. Stupid bandai, they give us a spare permanent horn mode but don't give us a spare v fin mode?

ouch, thats sucks... i just build crossbone fullcloth few weeks ago, a broke the skull on the head, but fortunatly there is a replacement. I've debated to get unicorn for a while, but decided not to, when it transforms the MS seens unproportion, maybe thats just my eyes lol. Last night had few drinks, got tipsy, went on the net and bought 3 MGs lol, they are all cheap ones thou 30CND each. got stop spending money on gundams for a while...

yeah... the v-fin parts are extremely thin. Had to be VERY careful to remove the small little remains of plastic from them and still, I felt like if you stared too much at them, they would broke lol.

Guess I'll have to be careful when I build my Unicorn. Not sure if I'm going to do that one next or one of the other 3 models I have to build. But first comes finished my MG Hi-Nu. Which won't take long since I only have the fins, weapons, and shield to go.

I'm not quite sure how you guys are breaking parts without the model falling off a certain height.

cuz some parts on MGs are really realy tiny and weak, on MG CrossBone Full Cloth, part of the skeleton sign on the head is less than half centimeter wide, and there is also a nub u need cut off on the end of weak part

Spoiler for CrossBone Full Cloth:

I think that may just be the sticker for the eyes, reflecting the light

for eyes better use gundam marker imo, green/red are the typical choice. I do OBB, so I don't really paint my gundams. Some times add extra colors to HGs

Ah, I see. I must have small fingers then since I didn't feel the pieces were so small as to be delicate when I assembled mine.

u mean using brush paint or air brush?

gundam markers are good for filling up small areas, not so well with larger areas

whoa whoa whoa...

there are some people who DON'T paint the eyes? If anyone uses the stickers for the eyes, stab yourself in your eyes while you're at it.
