The Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn is the updated version of the Banshee showcased in Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. The initial appearance of the Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee was almost identical to its sister suit, the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam, except for a different color scheme and additional armaments. The Banshee Norn features further improvements to the platform, adding the new Armed Armor DE and XC. The Armed Armor XC attaches to the Banshee Norn’s back and unfurls when the Mobile Suit enters Destroy Mode. This equipment amplifies Banshee’s power output and allows pilots without Newtype abilities to use the built-in NT-D System, similar to the n_i_t_r_o system installed in the MSN-001X Gundam Delta Kai. The Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn’s golden collar and deployed Armed Armor XC resemble the mane of a lion, specifically the Lion present in the famous 15th century French tapestries La Dame à la licorne (The Lady and the Unicorn), which appear during the series.

Included alongside the Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn for accessories:

  • Beam Magnum
  • Revolving Launcher
  • Armed Armor DE
  • Shield
  • Beam Jutte Effect
  • Beam Saber x2
  • Beam Saber Hilt x2
  • 1/144 Riddhe Marcenas Figure
  • Action Base Adapter

The RG RX-0 [N] Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn is one of many early Real Grade models utilizing pre-molded inner frame pieces in its assembly. These parts combine hard and soft plastics to create large movable joint sections, to which builders apply additional frame pieces and armor over the pre-molded parts. The RG Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn uses twice as many pieces as its High Grade counterpart, providing greater color accuracy on the 1/144th scale. The Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn uses the MS Joint System from the RG #25 RX-0 Unicorn Gundam molded in gray and transparent gold to recreate the activated Psychoframe. The RG Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn is the only 1/144 scale rendition of this iconic design to feature a transformation into Destroy Mode! Bandai provided detailed instructions showcasing all the necessary steps to transform the model, which does not require the use of additional pieces.

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

Each armament features updated designs loaded with surface detail without straying from the silhouette of the source material. These weapons feature the same excellent color separation as the Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn, providing some of the best-looking 1/144 scale weapons Bandai has ever made! The Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn includes the same Beam Magnum as its sister suit, only featuring an underbarrel Revolving Launcher loaded with different weapons. One of these weapons is a Beam Jutte, which projects a beam blade to deflect incoming Beam Saber attacks when the standard Beam Sabers are inaccessible.

Description

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. Making your own panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.

    Very nice transformation gimmick for a 1/144 scale. Lots of detail on the kit overall.
