RX-0(N) Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn – 1/100 Master Grade MG – Black

How many Unicorns can you build? I still can’t believe I’m conned by Bandai to this extent, alas. May be I should just do the normal Black Unicorn with the giant claw and complete the collection, haha.

The Banshee Norn is one of those annoying P-Bandai exclusives. When it was announced, there was a riot with people hating Bandai for making this exclusive, and I totally concur… this is a very cool design and it probably has much more screen time than the normal version, so the decision to make it exclusive is purely a marketing decision. Perhaps they just feel they can’t put out so many new UC kits on the shelves to bump the Build Fighters? Ah well whatever.

I was really indifferent to the kit but since no one has put out a properly exposed photo of the glowing Banshee I figured I should do it, haha. The yellow fluorescent plastic is quite weak in responding to the black light, so I needed to expose it for 30 seconds to make it glow properly. Otherwise everything else is standard Unicorn fare. As usual with dark kits I drybrushed the edges a bit as well.
