After the end of Neo Zeon's war, Anaheim Electronics for the first time, introduced the technology to drive full Psycho frame based based on U.C plan into Mythical creature appearance with a single angle to the pure statue and unicorn head. The biggest feature of this mobile suit is NT-D. "New-Type is that you are equipped with a system and D "Destory" mode, when the trigger is internal frame is extended, the armor of the aircraft each place is slide deployment, from the seam of the armor is exposed Psycho frame, Psycho frame that has been released this form causes a light emission phenomenon is called Destroy mode, whereby the overall MS performance psycho frames built into MS of the body is to move to reflect the thinking of the pilot directly, particularly maneuverability dramatically on the improvement. 

Pearlie white Unicorn Gundam RX-0 - Fix Figuration Metal Composite. Metal Composite treatment in 1/100 scale size with die-cast carrying an extremely solid size (20cm) as well as weight. Great proportions done by its original mecha designer, Hajime Katoki, this toy is like awesome model without having the hassle to DIY your Master Grade Gunpla. The material comprises of ABS, PVC, POM, and plenty of die-cast metal parts which give great feel when handling it. Nicely painted in pearlie white with highly detailed fine original markings all over the Gundam. 

It comes packed with a wide range of weaponry comprising with beam magnum, hyper bazooka, beam saber, gattling guns and shield. Also the set comes with optional hands and signature GFF stand base. The beam magnum, hyper bazooka and shield can just peck onto the thruster pack. Unicorn Gundam is also capable of switching between its two modes (Unicorn and Destroy modes) with slide-open armor parts. I will just show the predominant 'Unicorn mode' as I have a built MG Unicorn Gundam transformed into 'Destroy mode' which I will be featuring in my future post.

So when you thought Toynami is gone for good after their Masterpiece series, they make a comeback with their Robotech scaled down 1/100 toy-line celebrating Robotech 30th Anniversary. The toy is presented in a box with transparent plastic window showing the actual figure in battroid mode. My first impression of the toy is that the plastic looks kind of low budget. When the box was opened, the backdrop card separate the figure from a set of accessories on plastic insert. Accessories include clear cockpit canopy, landing gears, missiles, rifle (Rifle attachable to the forearm without using clip), optional hands and display stand. 

Honestly, I'm impressed with the ingenuity of the display as it can be assembled to support all three modes of this veritech fighter, as such allowing the toy to be displayed in various dramatic poses. The feet or afterburner are painted with some chrome. When I held toy in my hand, it feels light and made of cheap plastic. Then again the toy held itself well and the weight is well-distributed. At first, I'm pretty paranoid of breaking the frail plastic while transforming however the toy more durable than I imagined. Nothing break with occasional joints pop out. The toy is really nimble and extremely poseable. I would say this is nice toy to play with however lack the collection value. Personally, I think the toy's look can be enhanced by adding some panel lines. In plane mode, the toy seems to lack proportionality and landing gears too high.

Long lost Missing-In-Action AGE-2 received a total makeover to a darker and unique space pirate style. Specializing in hand-to-hand combat and stealth mode provides low visibility to enemies as Dark Hound as the mobile suit remains as quiet as a ghost in space. The unit is piloted by the leader of the Space Pirates Bisidian, Captain Ash. In the anime, Dark Hound is fully transformable to flight mode, so is the Master Grade kit. 

Gage-ing Builder Series is more simplified hence the action figure is unable to transform. Nevertheless, the great thing about the figure is that it come pre-painted and ready for play straight out from box. 1/100 scale (approximately 19cm) and action figure gave great feel of play. The two grappling hooks that look like Captain Hook, can be mounted in the shoulder binders or hand held, and beam lancer rifle. 

Like other Gaging Builder series, the parts like the body, arm and legs are replaceable to mix-and-match to make you ultimate combination. I like the original form but kiddos would think other wise. AGE card of the MS included in the set. Bandai had smartly conceal the screws of the figure to the inner side and rear. The lance rifle of the figure is made less sharp for child's safety.
