GSG.Gallery - FW STANDart RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 01 (Destroy Mode / Rouse Drive Ver.)

Unicorn Gundam's Rouse Drive version is also known as the Awakening version, where its psycho frame glows green in colour. Except for Katoki's version (or Ver. Ka) of the MG Full Armour Unicorn Gundam, (now please feel free to correct me if I am wrong) all other Rouse Drive versions of the Destroy Mode Unicorn Gundam are either limited or special editions.

What we are sharing today is a Fusion Works iteration of the Rouse Drive which was featured as an exclusive at this year's International Animhiation Festival held in Hong Kong. As the first FW that we have acquired and having being labelled as a limited exclusive, we had our expectation high while we awaited its arrival into our hands.

Like most of the Fusion Works STANDart releases, the Unicorn Gundam (we are talking about the RD version here as we do not possess the standard released one) is highly detailed, with parts that are appropriately coloured and noticeable panel lines that could be drawn. We had however, in the course of our expectation, factored in the fact that this is a candy toy, and thus will have some degree of inconsistency in colouring and a very limited articulation.

The main draw of this Unicorn is the green psycho frame, which in this case, has been molded transparently. Although it does not glow in itself, its visual effect is greatly enhanced when external lighting is used.

As always, pictures explain everything beyond words.
