Unicorn Gundam is fitted with an operating system called the NT-D, which will automatically triggered when the presence of a NewType is detected on its immediate battlefield.
Masked as NewType-Drive, its true name is actually NewType-Destroyer, an anti-NewType operating system (Obviously).
Upon detection, the Beast of Possibility will convert into its Destroy Mode, greatly increased in performance and mobility in order to deal with the threat that is a NewType.
The only flaw of the system is its inability to distinguish between true NewTypes or the artificial Cyber NewTypes.
Due to the massive stress faced by the pilot during its operation, the system limited itself a 5 minutes time frame (In order not to kill its pilot by accident) before the fail-safe kicks in, reverting it back to its Unicorn Mode.
As such the system is more suitable to be used by a (Cyber) NewType. Oh, the irony!
Previously, I’ve covered on the articulation and overall exterior of the 1/60 Perfect Grade Unicorn Gundam, as well as its various gimmicks in its Unicorn Mode.
For this round, we’ll look at the included weapons and other optional stuff available to the Unicorn.
First on the line is the Shield, a standard defensive armament aside from all the usual basic offensive weaponry like the Beam Rifle or equivalent.
In the story, the Shield holds within itself an I-Field generator, able to deflect incoming beam attacks, except solid projectiles or point-blank attacks.
It wasn’t another two weekends after that I’ve finally top coated the finished model with clear aerosol spray cans I got locally (Originally intended for Mr. Hobby Matte Clear Top Coats but they are way more expensive and are out of stock at the time; FYI: 1 Mr. Hobby Matte Clear = 4 local clear…).
Behold, the Beast of Possibility in its glorious Perfect Grade!
Clad in stark white armour, Unicorn looks terrifically menacing in size, being a 1/60 Perfect Grade and all. Before moving further in, let’s have a look at 1/60 PG RX-0 Unicorn Gundam in its standard—well—Unicorn Mode.
Continuing from earlier post, let us have a glimpse at the many figures and stuff on display during the event.
Kotoburd made an impact (OK, OK that was a lame pun…) during Cosplay Invasion 4, at the figure display booth of which I’m one of the exhibitor of. =w=
After two months worth of uneasy wait since its release date, I’ve finally procured my
holy grail Perfect Grade Unicorn Gundam from a comrade supplier, albeit missing its L.E.D. set… D:
According to inside news, Bandai actually had an internal smuggling problem at their China factories, causing shortage of the L.E.D. units worldwide.
There’s also another rumour that Bandai rejected many shipments of the said L.E.D. units due to their lower than usual quality, thus had to freshly remade the units causing massive delays, much to the dismay of Gunpla fans.
Not sure if they are true, but my own L.E.D. set would definitely be delayed to at least May… >,<
Anyway, here’s a look at the packaging of the Perfect Grade…
