[GALLERY] Bandai PG 1/60 RX-0[N/AA] Unicorn Gundam Unit 02 Banshee Norn [Armed Armor Ver.] - Customised Build

Model Number: RX-0[N/AA]
Designation: EFSF Prototype Full Psychoframe Armed Armor Equipped Mobile Suit

After close to 5 years, the Black Lion finally stands.
Issued as a build challenge cum Perfect Grade experiential experiment to @sldsstudio, the design brief for the PG 1/60 RX-0[N] Unicorn Gundam Unit 02 Banshee Norn was simple: retain as much of its original colour scheme as possible but also add as much realism as feasible.

The goal was to create a Banshee faithful to its initial design colouration, yet with added mechanical details achieved through painting to bring it into the real world. The build also incorporated the Armed Armor equipment (BS and BN) found on the non-Norn Banshee, resulting in a look that is similar to the Unicorn Plan B but with its own distinctive visage.

The Bandai Perfect Grade 1/60 RX-0[N/AA] Unicorn Gundam Unit 02 Banshee Norn [Armed Armor Ver.] soars into battle with the Armed Armors XC, DE, VN and BS - a veritable mobile suit armoury that is able to counter any conceivable threat.

In DESTROY Mode, the "psychoflame" blazes brilliantly, complementing the Banshee's deep midnight blue and star gold main colours to evoke imagery of its namesake: a fiery banshee. Although transformation takes a while to get used to and can be heart-stopping at times, the end result is well worth the effort.

Seriously, check out the videos of it lighting up below:
