Does anyone have the MG Rick Dias. I've been looking at it for a while and can't decide whether to get it or the MG Force Impulse. Any recommendations or comments would be welcome.

Honestly they both suck unless you're a good painter. HG Destiny is the best from the HG Seed line.

rrobbert184 did a review of him recently actually.

He was hoping for a Virtue to Nadleeh transformation for it too.

Good luck with your decision.

Anyone know if the MG GP02 has screws though?

Get ballute if you want to paint the model. Orignial Hyaku Shiki is cool, nice gold chrome parts, but if you mess up, black parts will show if you cut it. Hyaku Shiki HD color I like also.

If you want nice chrome parts, get orignial.

Prime92 has reviewed the TT Hongli Unicorn. Her lighting wasn't great so its difficult to tell if the pink plastic was dark or light.

I've the Bandai original and the shade of pink used for the clear pastic is absolutly perfect. I'd get the official one if you have the funds.

The Bandai original is a pinkish red. If you wanted to darken it a red sharpie or some Tamiya clear red paint would work.

I think I recall ZR0 mentioning that he darkened his Unicorns psycho frame.

Are u sure i should get bandai ver. cuz theres like a $30 gap between the TT hongli and bandais price.....
I think there almost the same quality......

That $30 could be spend on other stuff tho...

I can't comment on the TT Hongli version as I haven't seen one but the Bandai version is a really great MG.

If both versions are of similar quality then it down to personal preference. Have a look at both Prime92 review of the TT Hongli ver and ZR0's reviews of the Bandai ver on youtube and go with the one you think is the best. I understand your dilemma as $30 will easily get you two decent HG kits.

If ur goin to mod it get the TT hongli. If u want one to look like it should(decals and clear stickers) get the bandai version.
But remember that the TT hongli has the gatling guns and a stand.

There are actually 2 versions of the hongli unicorn. The first is the generic bandai copy, and the other comes with the gatling guns and action base w/c is of course a bit more expensive.
