I'm kinda tired of all the Unicorns and Sinanjus by now. But I just have to give this a try. The Unicorn FA was impressive but this one is really the icing on the cake. Perhaps it's the freaking awesome claws (Armed Armor) or the gold colour psycho frame, Banshee appeals to me more.
Like the previous versions, construction will be more complex since it can transforms into two modes, Unicorn and Destroy.

So I am back and loving it. Why? Japan is a fantastic place but I was ill prepared. Temperatures during the day hovers between 5 to 9 degrees and plunges to less than 3 degree at night. A "chilling" experience you can see. Speaking of chills, I have something to share with you guys later.
And, I got the chance to experience snow for the first time, a brief hail storm and even tremors! You can say its the complete tour package. While my family is fully prepared for the weather, I wasn't. I only have a jacket with me and after the second day, I looked wasted LOL...
My last trip to Japan was 10 years ago with my wife (then girlfriend) and who could have predicted that I am back with two kids in tow now LOL... For modelers like us, Japan is one place we must go and experience the
shopping err... I mean the Gunpla culture. And this time, I had the HAG gang as my tour guides and thanks to them, I get to shop till I drop!

Yes! Like what the title says, I'm going to Japan tonight! My last trip there was 10 years ago. So I am pretty excited about it.
Being a Gunpla hobbists, I am like returning to the motherland of Gundams. I will visit as many hobby stores as possible over the span of 8 days. Mission: to research what makes our Japanese counterparts tick? Looking at completed models on magazine help very little. But seeing them up close and personal will put things in perspective! Hopefully, I will find the breakthrough that I have been seeking for a while now.
Well, I am going to indulge myself with the local delicacies and gorged myself to death! And I am going to visit this!
So expect to see lots of pics one week from now. Woohoo...!!!!!
