Yea but no doubt the FA Unicorn would have benefited from the Black Friday deal greatly;)

Just like I want my Hi-Nu now but it's bloody backordered!!!:frustrated:

Looks like I'll just get the Infinite Justice and a few HGs or maybe with a Deathscythe.

Also after having a look through the catalog, why the hell haven't Bandai made a MG V2 Gundam or Formula 91 MGs??!!

it would, but its only for kits that are on sale right now :P so im not mad about that, its not their fault that the kit is being released next month and not now^^

and there actually ARE two MGs from F91. although they are techically the same model... the F91 itself and the the F91 Harrison in blue^^
but you are right about there not being a MG V2.

The information I have says the parts are still there. Granted, I'm still waiting for the official solicitation sheets which has the Product SKU, estimated package dimensions, runner count, # of product in a case, etc.

suiton629 2011-11-24 18:18

Yea~! Finally some more Unicorn Banshee stuff!












bio9205 2011-11-24 18:46

Finally, official OVA linearts of the Banshee! The golden face will take some getting used to.

Yeah, a V2 would be really, really nice, but perhaps the transformation on it is still too complicated to put into a MG kit today, i mean the Victory itself is really tiny and fragile

Yeah, same with the horn, it looks so out of place in unicorn mode, the golden faceplate is pretty horrible aswell :x in destroy mode it looks great though.

i do dunno what the hell those two Banshee weapons are useful for though, i mean the magnum + shield is pretty much a ultimate sword and shield combo

casval cehack 2011-11-25 00:15

Since Banshee's "rail gun" doesn't fold in Destroy mode, I'll have enough justification to buy them both, just like for the Unicorn.

Bonta Kun 2011-11-25 01:46

So I'm right in saying the BF deal at HLJ is now in affect yea?

I have a aweful time with time zones etc...

I won't be getting that, despite it being such a great looking kit. I wait for a HGUC-Version.

Yea never actually thought to go to the site and check....

It's late and I'm tired, trying to starve myself of sleep so I can go to bed sleepy later tonight, trying to get back into a good sleepy pattern again.

Anyway missed out on the Infinite Justice just like I expected, knew it would sell out before I got round to placing a order.

Well just went for a couple of 1/144 instead. Didn't feel like a Deathscythe since I want a Hell ver. and I don't really see the point of me getting normal ver.

BTW whats the deal with the Metal Build Freedom?
Is that a first?
Whats the scale?
Is worth considering to get?
And who am I kidding, I want it!!!:D(looks like I've found my Bday treat!:p)

bio9205 2011-11-25 04:48

I do hope that in the actual OVA the Banshee's beam rifle will be able to fold out in Unicorn mode, else it'll be a joke just using its beam sabers. (Not that it'll be any less deadly, but still.)

The gunpla version photos look stucked solid, but the earlier damashii figure posted here works as designed.

Btw, I just got the RG Freedom. No free stands or tweezers this time.

It is used for panel lining on recessed channels and some raised panels. All you do is to press and run it along the panel lines, you let it dry-up for a moment then lightly clean it up with a cotton swab.

Thanks, dude. Guess I will try it again on my next build :)

You should also get like rubbing alcohol or thinner. Dip the q-tip/cotton swab in the solution, shake off the excess, and then rub off the excess panel line marker from the panel lines...But only do this if you let the panel line marker dry too much. :D

No problem! Just time it right when your going to clean off the excess as you want it to stick into those panel lines and don't worry about leaving too long to dry before cleaning, you can still easily clean it up with the cotton swab without any thinner. But if it really sticks onto the plastic, use a cotton swab with a drop of thinner(not too much as it may end up running along the panel lines and ruining your work) and rub it on to the intended surface then wipe it clean with a cloth, cotton swab/ball or tissue to remove any remaining ink residue.

Thanks again :) I will keep that in mind^^

Alright, caption below the shot of the Banshee's version of Unicorn's Magnum and Shield confirmed that they will be bundled with the HGUC Banshee along with the new armaments. Which is certainly very kind and uncharacteristical of Bandai.

bio9205 2011-11-25 22:50

That's awesome news! Maybe the lack of trans-clear parts make the Banshee cheaper than the original Unicorn to produce. :heh:

Now I`M surprised! Definitely did not see that coming. Thatīs indeed very uncharacteristical of Bandai O_O

MakubeX2 2011-11-26 03:52

A quick examination of the HGUC Unicorns' runners will shed light upon the truth behind Bandai's reasoning :-

http://img443.imageshack.us/img443/5...2097096786.jpg
http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/6397/1322097458058.jpg

It's most likely Bandai is too lazy to remove the branch containing the old weapons from the runners, so they just copy everything wholesale and introduce a new runner containing the new armaments for the HGUC Banshee.

But it's still puzzling as to why not an increment in the pricing with the intorduction of the one extra runner ?

bio9205 2011-11-26 06:40

Well, I'm not complaining. Like I said, could it be that trans-clear parts cost more to make than normal solid ones?

pumpkins 2011-11-26 07:11

so will the banshee (banshee mode) come with the bazooka or will it come with the rifle? just wondering only, either way i'm happy you get an extra weapon with this kit. :)

Officially, in the case for the Banshee, they still refer to it's NT-D mode as the Destroy Mode. And the Bashee NT-D will be packaged with the magnum, same as the Unicorn NT-D.

casval cehack 2011-11-26 09:01

Not an uncharacteristic goodwill from Bandai at all; they simply can't separate the magnum for the Banshee NT-D since there are no "optional" gates on the Unicorn's NT-D's D plate.

Any translations on the HGUC Juaggu?

It's understandable. But, as I had said, it will appears that at least an additional runner will be required for the Beam Launcher and Claws. With no extra charges at that. What gives ?

Loosely :-

"We are happy to annouce that the Juaggu who had made an impressional appearance in Ep.4 will be made into a kit. There's no release date yet, however."

oh, i was referring to the banshee normal mode, or whatever it is called when the psycoframe is not exposed. just wondering cos for the destroy mode maybe about 3-4 pieces are for the rifle, however for the unicorn mode nearly half of the runner is for the bazooka..seems to be an awful amount of plastic to put Xs over in the manual.

it has been done quite a number of times for the hg exia variants.. then it was just extra armor pieces here and there. extra weapons here will be much better :)

not really. giving us more plastic is still cheaper than designing a new runner or having the molding machine run differently :P

It's not a matter of laziness but efficiency. The Banshee literally is a Unicorn recolor with a different v fin, mask, and collar. It is cheaper to make a new runner with many new parts separately than it is to try to cookie cutter an existing runner to make the new parts fit and have the same runner count.

As for the price being the same, you have to remember that transparent plastic is pricey compared to normal plastic. The Banshee instead of having translucent plastic has the wonderfully "adored" (or hated) Strike Freedom brown gold. This drops the price, but because of the added parts for the new weapons, the price ends up being the same.

On the other hand the Unicorn mode of Banshee is indeed 100 yen more since a new runner is being added without any changes.

Rising Dragon 2011-11-26 16:51

And later they can always do the Gundam 00 route and release a version of the Unicorn with the translucent plastic.

Well, it's nice that they had managed to do with an increment in parts with little changes in the pricing.

But think of the possibilities if Bandai had thought way ahead of time here. Something tells me that the changes made to the Banshee was an 11th hour thingie and we might have transparent yellow instead of brown gold if everything was planned from the start.

Derringer 2011-11-26 18:29

I think we still would have had that Strike Freedom/Sangokuden Gold, but a trade off being that we don't get the Unicorn's standard weapons. =/

Bandai seems to think gold=brown gold, which is unfortunate if you don't paint kits and also unfortunate in that the chemical composition of this on ABS plastic is weaker than the normal gray plastic. Anyone who has the MG SF or PG SF knows that those pieces are extremely weak and are prone to wearing away through simple movements.

...Yikes. I don't own any kits with that colour, so I wouldn't know. But the brown-gold pieces seem to be scattered amongst the armour, so I guess with the exception of the V-fin, they won't be very prone to breakage.

Exia_00 2011-11-27 04:58

Im hoping there is a better finish to the yellow on the banshee, but then again could this be an evil way to boost sales of a "titanium finish" hmmm...

duotiga 2011-11-27 07:01

i dont think they will be making chrome gold for the pyscho frame for Banshee though...the cost is just top great to make it chrome
