Welcome to my rough, yet fairly thorough review of the differences between the new MG Unicorn OVA version and the previously released Ver Ka edition.

In from a design prospective there aren't a whole lot of differences between the Ver Ka release and the new OVA. Surprisingly the OVA release comes with the exactly same runners as the Ver Ka. The new parts come on two small additional runners. Apparently it was cheaper for Bandai to keep the same molds and include the extra runners.
Some more progress today.
Lessons learned so far? Resin fucking sucks. Despite a good cleaning my primer acted completely different to resin than it does normal plastic. It also has the tendency to randomly break, as you'll see when I post close up shots.
Worst of all, is that the antlers came all fucked up. I did my best to bend them back into place but they're still bent. Another thing that sucks about resin is that you don't really see minor imperfections until you paint. I had to clean them up several times followed by a bit more paint in order for them to look as good as they do now.

A little something I cooked up yesterday. It actually took me longer to export the video without any quality degradation than it took to reasonably match up the video & audio. iMovie is the biggest pile of shit.
The first seven minutes of the soon to be released first volume of Gundam Unicorn. Video's been released by Bandai.
I think it looks pretty good, even if it's a YouTube presentation whose source quality wasn't that solid to begin with. Apparently on Bandai's site you can view it with subtitles, but the video isn't working for me to begin with.
