A Stellar Kit. Head Assembly is a Pain though While I am a novice when it comes to Gunpla, the assembly of the Chest, Waist, Arms, Feet, and Legs are straight forward builds. All are composed of small pieces that slide, flip, and rotate to reveal the translucent orange pieces. It is an intricate, and time consuming build that results a tightly fit- dense model.
The Head feels like it is from a completely different manufacturer however! The face plate of the Gundam is two separate pieces a gray plate for the stickers of the eyes and a translucent orange piece that you stick the mouth guard to. You join these two together with a male-to-female connection port. This forms the plate itself which has a single pincer joint connection to the top of the head. The top of the head is the normal center ridge that runs the length of the top of the head that most Gundams have, for the sake of convenience, I will call this the "Head crest" The head crest is the foundation point for everything else on the head. It is first a bright yellow piece with a large pincer joint at the front. You attach the face plate to a rod just behind the primary pincer joint. you then attach a gray slider with a hinge joint at the back, and a blue plastic cover to the top. there are two parts that you connect to the gray slider. The back of the head: which is two orange translucent pieces that join on the hinge, and the blue "cap" which fits around the crest and connects to the slider. This part is a royal pain due in part to its connection method and my stubby fingers. The Cap has small inlets that I will call "Line connections": a straight male-to-female connection but instead of the cylinders its a thin rectangle extrusion and an inlet. These line connections attach to the extrusions gray slider. This is a pain because I could never line them up properly, but I would connect them, this made the connection very weak and would fall apart quite easily. On the orange pieces you attach the side panels of the head, completing the helmet look, this panels have small, frail male-to-female connections, making it weak. The point I'm getting at is, the Head is hollow. This is so the big golden panel that is in front of the face (faded image left in package art) can be flipped inside the head from the outside. Normally this style of design works but the head is constructed so flimsily with small, frail, and few connection points that the head feels like its from a different kit. Everything else of this model is dense, Loads of small pieces that fit so tightly together, you have to completely remove the Sprues and make the piece flush so it can fit in. The designers clearly cared about this kit. Just building the model and feeling all of it's little intricacies, you can tell the designers really cared about robot. So why oh why does the head look and feel so rushed?
What you have here is a fantastic model. A dense kit with tons of small pieces that form this marvel of a time sink. Its all lovingly constructed and clearly evident that months of R&D went into this, but The head is down right Alien in comparison. It has all the design elements of the rest of the model: Small pieces, sliding, rotating, flipping, orange. What the head lacks, seems to be the design philosophy. The pieces in the kit are small but nothing felt frail, quite the opposite in fact. You end up making these surprisingly heavy bricks of plastic, the feet especially. The head definitely seems to be the last thing R&D touched as it is Nothing compared to the rest of the kit, the pieces actually were frail, the connections were astoundingly weak (The unicorn horn was a ball joint that "fit" in the yellow crest's pincer) and the hollow head was far too malleable. It feels foreign, just actively different in feel from the rest of the model.
What a Looker Very long build. It IS a Unicorn model after all. Looks great next to it's counter part and is actually a bit more sturdy than Unicorn Ver.Ka. Overall. It's a great model and you just GOTTA get both. They stand out when they are together.
Love it!! Finally got my hands on the banshee. Very easy build and only complaint which some have already stated it can be a little tricky to pose. But all and all it fits right at home in my collection.
Finishing: Top Coat/Super Clear (Not for use on psychoframe parts)
