Took some time to build but worth it
The Golden Lion makes its MG debut! This suit comes from Episode 4 of Unicorn Gundam and is known as the Black Unicorn. It converts from Unicorn Mode to Destroy Mode just like MG Unicorn. The gold-colored psycho frame is made of special material which reflects UV light when black light hits the frame. The impressive weapons on the left and right arms also feature expansion gimmicks to make this kit extra intimidating. Don’t miss out!

A little too ambitious
If you're like me, you first saw the Banshee and thought "that looks bad***" and went and bought the kit. Unfortunately, this kit is plagued with a few fatal flaws that make it very difficult to recommend this to most builders.
First: the good. This kit looks imposing. the colors are great, the psycho frame is vibrant and contrasts nicely, and the included runners also have the leftover parts to make the Unicorn's shield, Nice! The kit is dark, so forget any panel lines. There are a few nice included dry transfer decals, but investing in a gold waterslide decal kit will do winders for this one.
To cut it short: the ankles suck. The legs of the unicorn variants go through a huge change in the transformation, and unfortunately the ankle joints just don't hold up. In unicorn mode, you can work it very carefully and manage to get it to stand. In destroy mode, you can almost forget about it. Get a stand. Thankfully, the shoulder and knee joints are sturdy enough that I haven't had any sag in an entire year of having this kit posed dynamically in destroy mode.

Awesome looking kit... but....
This kit is very visually pleasing. Just don't expect to be transforming this once you've got it displayed after the first time. For me the joints are super week, the transformations feel as if they would fall off or break off if looked at funny. If you're just going to have them crafted, and set on display like I am, then yeah it's a good kit. Just transform it, pose it, and probably glue it into place because it'll flop around or break.
