    2. Not unless they release a Perfect Grade Full Armor Unicorn... God forbid..

    3. full armor unicorn is just a unicorn with tons of weapons strap on its body, and weapons do t have that much small pieces compare to the main body.

  6. If i was ever going to buy a perfect grade it would be this one.

  11. there's a third mode on top of unicorn and destroy mode

    1. The "Expensive Mode"! Nah Just Kidding,maybe Clear Psychoframe,which without LEDs would be "Deactive Mode" as seen on Episode 5,and the LEDs would do the "NT-D Mode" psychoframe

      Delete
    2. perhaps the awakening mode, the inner frame will change color if you use the LEDs ??

      Delete
    3. could be. it didn't say the psycho-frame was going to be in red. so could light up in green as well.

      Delete
    4. nah, says right there red psychoframe.

      Delete
    5. You can probably switch the color of the LED's from red to green.

      Delete
    6. OMG shut up! If it is indeed clear psycho-frame with red and green LEDs, then I would absolutely have to to buy this. I'm trying to stay away, but that would push me over >.<

  12. Nah, i'll just wait for PG Full Armor Unicorn, that's gonna be epic... for my wallet xD

    1. You know that thats not gonna happen, bandai never make bulky kits, 00 raiser was beyond the max they could handle. If they could they would have released pg red frame with a kai backpack or flight pack already wouldnt they? so stop dreaming of the impossible.

      Delete
    2. I don't see why they wouldn't. Red frame and 00 might not've had their backpacks, but the Strike had the Skygrapser and the Aile Striker pack. And the GP01 had both the normal and Full Burnen forms.

      Delete
    3. Or they might release the FAU Accessories as P-Bandai Exclusives since you already have the PG Uni as base

      Delete
  13. Damn, was hoping the MG Xi Gundam Ver Ka would be the December release. On the other hand, holy shit!!! Cannot wait for this. Been hesitant about a PG and now this shall be my first with one of my favourite Gundam.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. MG Xi Ver Ka would be a kit on the scale of Sazabi. It's a massive suit (28 metres). There has already been 2 kits of that size this year (Sazabi, Hi-Nu) so it's too soon for Xi. I prefer Penelope Gundam to Xi (that awesome flight pack) but eiher would be great...they're the 2 most powerful gundams Anaheim ever built.

  14. hakuna your tatas!

  15. Well my wallet is in danger. I think we'll see p-bandai a lot base on this guy such as green frame, Full armor and banshee

    1. if there is a Banshee norn it would be p-bandai item. Guessing there will also be a p-bandai release for fa mode too.

  36. TBH I was kinda expecting a PG Nu Gundam before this, but Unicorn is still awesome. A little too expensive for my tastes, but I'm sure it will be awesome.

  37. PG Sinanju can't be far behind

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I would die happy with a PG Sinanju. My life could be a series of torture and misfortune after that, I wouldn't even care. I'd have a fucking PG Sinanju.

      Delete
    2. I agree. I like the unicorn and I'm excited to have a PG version. however, I would LOVE to have a PG sinanju. It's probably one of the few kits you could paint in any color and still look good. Leave it standing there and it would still look menacing and commanding. Besides, it would sell just as well as the unicorn. But Bandai would probably milk the PG Unicorn line. They could easily have the unicorn and banshee using the same mold, plus the possibility of an online exclusive for the FA unicorn.

      Delete
    3. Amen to that. PG sinanju equals Nirvana for me.

      Delete
  38. Yeees!!!! I knew it would come with 2 gatlings just like the metal build!!! December. ...probably b4 or after my Birthday! This would make the best birthday gift in years!!!!!

    1. Agree fully, why so much love for one series? We keep getting the same suits over and over again...we need more 00 and AGE kits, they got so little love :'(

      Delete
    2. 00, yes, age no. it is the least popular series, bandai first realise no one was watching the series, second, the hg age line was selling poorly, third, they realise age was a flop and decided to cancel MG age 3 and age fx. Also, bandai dun own the rights to age completely. And bandai also learnt that it is not wise to leave half of the production rights to some other people coz when they make all the decision on plot without bandai's overseeing it, they fuck up a series. 00 received quite a bit of love and they will continue to do so at the 10 years anniversary, and age? My explaination explains everything..

      Delete
    3. yep anon above said anything in my head. well for Seed series, u know how much turmoil for mass people during its shows. and Bandai promoted it like crazy cos yeah first gundam series in 21st century. of course they'd be so popular in that time wether for gundam fan or general people new to anime. so, Bandai turn that massive popularity to massive profit, and hoho, Bandai rake a MAXIMUM for it 'till now...

      so yeah, business is business too, even for anime lol

  41. Omg they could make Unicorn Banshee next :O

  42. Full Armor Ver or riot

  43. So... Will the LED set be a bunch of Gunpla LED units or a bunch of pre assembled LEDs going into a small circuit made for this kit?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hold your horses, bro...
      even we gundam builders are currently discussing this PG development on other forums

      the most questionable design for the LED set IMO is, how in the hell Bandai could make 29 portable LED be put in all over the psychoframe without disassembling to the core of the part for this to happen?

      are they making every LED slot in the body can be popped out/in like the MG franchise?

      are the body have to dissamble to a certain part with bolt IF the unicorn finished first?

      or is the LED design is like MG unit or circuits like PG Zeta???

      etc...

      so much speculations before the actual preview november 21st, so be patient bro...

      Delete
    2. I should have added, "any thoughts?". well said though, dude.

      IMO, 12900 yen for the LED set... that sounds ridiculous, even if it is in fact 30 Gunpla LED units (which are a bit over priced to begin with) or a small circuit board with integrated circuits with pre-soldered or spliced LEDs similar to the PG Mk ii.

      I think the only thing to justify the price would be adding other goodies, like a small speaker circuit with transformation sounds on a light up action stand. But this is bandai we're talking about.

      Id rather go with the older PG Zeta setup since there is always room for improvements + one could use smd components instead.

      Nov 21 aint too far away though. I hope this one is not a train wreck like the 00 Raiser. Any disagreements?

      Delete
    3. ^ lol 00 raiser... the only thing that PG make me go wonder is its GN Drive, only that...

      back on topic; yeah, 12900 yen LED set really is a handful. id rather too with the PG Zeta setup, but if it will be like building cable etc, i think this LED is OVERPRICED...

      makes sense for Bandai adding goodies for set, but im assuming other setup.

      ...could it be a wireless LED with transmitter/receiver in its body...?
      of course thats my only bold assumption... lol

    1. they are going to relieve everything on 11 21 probably at the gunpla expo

  45. i think that it's nice that this happened finally. id love to see a new wing suit next to go along with the zero ew, or even a pg exia.

    they should lay off the seed though since the series needs a big coma

    ReplyDelete
  46. For god sake please make PG Sinanju

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i think Sinanju is very UNLIKELY to be made into PG line, cause the PG line is only for the ultra popular gundam/mobile suit in its series. Unicorn is the most influential gundam inbetween 2010-2014 so early speculation in those years suggesting that unicorn would be the next official PG after Strike Freedom in 2010.

      take example for the 00 series, only 1 made it to the PG line (00 raiser), not the Exia cause 00 raiser is ultra popular in 2008-2009 so Bandai take the popularity to the MAXIMUM profit. or Seed series, oh what a start of 21st century, even now mass people know like strike or strike freedom. yeah, a turmoil start of 21st century lol

      of course im not belittle-ing Sinanju, i love it so much, but then it's not in "ultra popular" category according to Bandai's market survey. i think which will be the next PG line in Unicorn series would be either limited edition green frame unicorn or banshee, of course thats my only and other forum speculations lol

      if u want to know why only selected number of PG gundam released since 1998, please check forums/wiki how could Bandai be so cruel not releasing other gundam even though it's popular to gundam fanatics... *sob

      please excuse my english, not my first language lel

      Delete
    2. At this point the Banshee is practically a given since other than the antennae and the weapons its just a color variant.

      Delete
    3. @Jason Reynolds, yeah that'll be more probable since we see PG MK-II getting both variant in PG line. of course, they (Bandai market analyser) would see how well they can get for Unicorn first before they try hastily launch the Banshee later. IMHO if Unicorn really does sale well, maybe next or 2 years from now Bandai will release the Banshee, of course that's only my assumption for now lel

      Delete
  47. can't wait to the release the Banshee next!!!! mark ll had a second very alike variation the strike had a second very alike variation unicorn and Banshee are in the same chemistry I sence a release if not next year maybe the year after!

  48. I'm sorry, but what exactly is "on display"? This has been the top story for three days, but the only thing we've seen is the billboard, and the handout. Are we actually going to see pictures of it, or maybe a physical prototype?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This is just a sneak peek, a preview. Why would bandai release the prototype on all japan model and hobby show, a show that is not theirs to control? They are revealing the prototype or display model on 17 november, gunpla expo japan, so stay tuned to then :)

      Delete
    2. bandai say they will show it on 21st of nov

      Delete
    3. Nothing. It was just a billboard. The actually reveal will be on Friday Nov 21, 2014, before the December release.

      Given the short time between reveal and release, It's either perfect, or has its shortcoming.

      Delete
    4. Come on, don't complain about the delay, at least Bandai give us a fucking PG unicorn and i will get it anyway. And besides it is 2 months away and they want as much attention as possible and i think they did a very good job at that, and showing the prototype at late as possible will be most effective so i don't think that is the problem.

      Delete
    5. The model will be shown at the gunpla expo in November.
      Prototype images may appear in hobby magazines next month and bandai may also periodically release other promotional material between now and release date.

      Delete
    6. I would hope they took the time to make it as perfect as possible. I don't think that the short time between the reveal and the release necessarily means that there are gaping flaws.

      Delete
    7. they must have learned what the fatal flaws from the MG (elbow joint, back torso lock, head transformation, knee transformation, etc...) and fixed it for the PG. seriously, if the PG still have 1 or more fatal flaws from the MG, i think im gonna be swearing till hell lel

  49. sorry if it's obvious, but does that mean two beam gattling guns? or two pairs of them?

    1. two beam gatling guns. Bandai will never give us 2 pairs (other pair will be considered to put in to a Full Ammo package, and either sell like expansion pack like Sky Grasper, or p-bandai)

  53. Holy crap, is that the Unicorn crouching!!??
    Fxxxing unbelievable!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I wonder if the third mode is the green mode? While the kit itself comes with the red psycho frame I would suspect that the LED kit could include clear psychoframe replacement parts in addition to the LEDs. If they use color changing LEDs it would be easy to switch from red to green.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes, thats my assumption too for the "Third Mode" as well. what other mode for Unicorn except the: 1. Unicorn mode, 2. Destroy Mode (Red Psychoframe), and the last 3. Enlighten Mode? (Green Psychoframe, sorry for the name in this mode, i thought it would be better than name "Peace Mode" lol).

      the Full Armor Mode would not be added in here, cause the list of weapon they give us is not entirely Full Armor pack, so exclude this mode.

      i think the most probable design would be it has clear/transparent psychoframe and the LED can be lit to 2 colours (red and green). but in the list of the above 'Gimmicks' section, it clearly said [Red psychoframe in special glow plastic], so im assuming the psychoframe would be red by default.

      this is so a brain teaser for "Third Mode"....

      Delete
    2. If the LED upgrade includes transparent psychoframe replacement parts the cost suddenly seems a lot more reasonable.

    3. interesting thought u have there...
      but ofc we can only imagine whats in the box for LED unit when its on official preview in 11/21 lol

  55. DAT EARLY PROTOTYPE

  56. Is it a tad too early to call for PG SINANJU next year?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. read the above comments bro

      Delete
    2. Yeah. Considering they stopped making mono-eye PG kits after the Zaku II and tried doing the Glorious Series line with the 1/60 Gouf and Rik Dom MS instead. I'd say chances are very slim of a PG Sinanju ever happening.

      The next PG is most likely to be the Banshee,

      Delete
    3. Unlikely; the extreme size of the kit prevents this; one of the two reasons Bandai hasn't released the Banshee in MG yet, that and the problems with posing the wing binders.

      Delete
    4. Disregard that, I'm high.

      Delete
    5. "one of the two reasons Bandai hasn't released the Banshee in MG yet"
      what?
      Banshee in MG has been out in 2012 or 2013...

      as for the wing binders (im assuming u mean Banshee Norn), im pretty sure design engineers will work that out sooner than u think lol

      Delete
  57. im pretty that this CG images would be included in one of the art graphic in the Instruction Manual in the box (not the Construction Manual, all PG line have 2 set of manual).

    pretty well done CG actually, both the ignition pose and the clear part showing inner frame mechanism.

    of course this is only my assumption for the image lol
