  • Upper torso can slightly bend forward and tilt sideways.
  • Shoulder joints can swing forward.
  • The arms can...
    • Swing on a peg-and-socket joint.
    • Raise horizontally.
  • Upper arms can rotate below the shoulder.
  • The elbows and knees can be bent up to about 165 degrees.
  • The manipulators...
    • Can swivel on a ball-and-socket joint.
    • Feature 3+1+1 articulation on each of the Emotion Manipulators' finger.
  • The waist can rotate. (Only 90 degrees to prevent any possible damage for the LED straps.)
  • Front, side, and rear skirt armors are poseable via ball-and-socket joints, to avoid interference with the leg articulation.
  • The upper thigh joints can swing frontwards/backwards, raise horizontally and/or rotate on each piece.
  • The elbows and knees can be bent up to about 165 degrees.
  • The ankles can be bent forward/backward and tilt sideways.

Weapons/Other Gimmicks

  • The hands are swappable.
  • Any of the weapons can be wielded by the emotion manipulator hands. (For ranged weapons, you must use the trigger-finger hands for gripping stability.
  • Unicorn Gundam can be transformed between Unicorn and Destroy mode.
  • The cockpit hatch can be opened/closed.
  • Beam Magnum can be held in the either hand. Secondary handle can be deployed for holding the weapon with both hands.
    • Beam Magnum can be stored on either forearm or on the backpack.
    • Ammo pack can be detached.
      • The three ammo packs can be connected to form a single high-capacity ammo pack.
  • Hyper Bazooka can be held in either hand.
    • Hyper Bazooka can be stored on the backpack.
    • Ammo pack can be detached. A different rear part will be required when displaying the Bazooka without ammo.
  • A beam saber can be held in each hand.
    • Alternatively, the beam effect parts can be attached to the hilts on the forearm to form the Beam Tonfas.
  • A shield can be attached to either forearm. This will require some parts swapping in order to connect the light piping mechanism of the shield to the main body.
    • The shield can be transformed between Unicorn and Destroy mode to match the MS itself.
    • A pair of Beam Gatling Guns can be attached to the shield before connecting it to the forearm.
  • The model can be mounted on the provided Display Base. This is required if the builder wants to use the lighting gimmick.
    • The angle and height of the support arm can be adjusted to accommodate aerial poses.
    • The MS Cage and the individual stands for the Shield/Gatling Gun can be attached to/detached from the Display Base.
    • The Beam Magnum and Hyper Bazooka can be stored on the Display Base.
    • Beam Saber effect parts can be stored underneath the base when not in use.
    • The MS Cage has a box for storing small parts (e.g. figurines, extra weapon handles) that are not in use.
    • Each Shield/Gatling Gun combo can be mounted on their dedicated stands. They can all be connected together using a provided connector part.
      • These can be attached to the back of the base for storage mode. The wiring for each is connected on a reel. This can be unwound, allowing various positions for each stand.
      • The stands can be attached together. This configuration is used for mounting the three Shield/Gatling Gun construction when combined.
  • Light-up Gimmick can be activated in a cycle:
    • First press - Eyes and head camera light up.
    • Second press - The psycho-frame lights up in pink color.
    • Third press - The psycho-frame lights turn green. A pulsating effect is activated when the model is left in this lighting mode after a few seconds.
    • Fourth press - The lighting cycles through the previous modes in order and then turn off.
    • If a shield is connected to the forearm, the psycho-frame on the shield lights up as well.
      • The same is true when the shields are connected via the stands.
    • Note: Light-up gimmick requires 3 AA batteries (sold separately).

Tips & Tricks

  • For better results, some or most of the details are needed to be applied and panel-lined with Gundam Markers and/or Mr. Color Paints.
  • Top coat (Mr. Hobby recommended) can be used to protect applied sticker/marking decals and if any, painted details.
    • If using matte/flat-finish top coat, it is advisable not to spray on the clear/translucent and the softer parts - can be done by masking or spraying top coat while the said parts are separated.
  • A higher degree of care is recommended when posing/transforming this model in order to reduce the risk of damaging the LED strip integrated into the whole kit. This is especially important for rotating parts (e.g. head, upper arms): while the joints allow full rotation, doing so will sever the LED strip in the respective area. The instruction manual indicates the recommended direction and range when moving these parts.
