HGUC Unicorn Gundam Assembly

New images showing the assembly of HGUC Unicorn Gundam in both modes:

Unicorn Mode - Arms and shoulder. From Apron Person Model Production Diary.

Without the transformation gimmick, the forearm beam saber cannot be used, a feature which is accessible only by the Destroy Mode I think.

Destroy Mode - Upper body. From Gunpla Secret Base.

Vulcan on the shoulder joint needs foil sticker to cover up the top portion.

Much better articulation for the shoulder this time as compared to the MG version. At least there won't be any worry that flipping it to the front is going to close the chest piece. ^^;

Face design is longer as compared to the MG version it seems?

If you look at the part separation of the shoulder and arms, as well as the body unit (Unicorn mode done by Apron Person Model Production Diary yesterday), you'll find that there's a nice mix of the same parts and the unique ones to each mode for each component. While these two models aren't that bombastic enough to amaze me, I find Bandai's planning and design of the models to be pretty awesome ^^

November 19th release. Unicorn Mode - 1,575 Yen (inclusive of tax), Destroy Mode - 1,890 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Images are from Apron Person Model Production Diary and Gunpla Secret Base.
