Oh joy, limited edition MG Unicorn Banshee and RG Strike


I do hate you, recolors. I really do. I've gone on so many times about how much I hate them and how lazy it is, but then I just can't stop myself from doing anything about it. This time it's the two Gundams I have grown to love the most, Gundam Unicorn and Strike Gundam. Now they're both headed for the exclusive Bandai Pro Hobby Shop.

Fresh off the heels of the announcement of the Master Grade Gundam Unicorn Banshee, they now have the "Final Battle" version. All this means for the uninitiated is that the Psycoframe is now green instead of gold/orange. They did do one thing different as now those parts will light up. Okay Bandai, you got me. Shut up and take my money! Oh wait, you made this an exclusive to be released in May for 5,250 yen. Way to go!

Trying to appeal to my other Gundam fetish is the Real Grade Strike Gundam. They're releasing it in two varieties: the original version as well as the Phase-Shift Down (read: gray) version. They both cost the same, 2,100 yen, and will be released in March. There's no difference in parts, just colors. Again, it's web shop limited, so feel free and try to get these.

I hate myself for saying it, but I want that Final Battle Banshee if just for the LEDs. It's about time that they got to doing an official version to do the trick that so many Gunpla builders have already done.
