BLOG: Box Art Extravaganza Fünfzehn

Box Art Extravaganza Fünfzehn Okay, those who are thinking twice or having a wait-and-see attitude towards the RG Unicorn Gundam may have to reconsider, at least if packaging art is much of a concern.

This is because through the power of packaging variants, the first production run of this kit will feature the Unicorn Gundam in Unicorn Mode. Yep — no bonus parts, no price differences — just the box art is different.

This is perfect for those who wanted to get two copies of this kit, to display in both Unicorn and Destroy modes. That said, those who wanted to get the standard Destroy Mode packaging may have to wait until the first production run copies are gone.

Box Art Extravaganza Fünfzehn Now for some actual box art discussion. So here is how the standard RG Unicorn Gundam packaging would look, in its Destroy Mode. Notice anything unusual with this packaging art?

First and foremost, it looks plain and boring, especially with the first production run Unicorn Mode. So much so that many have mistaken this to be fake or fan-made despite coming straight from Bandai Hobby’s website. A plain white mobile suit on a white to black gradient looks really monotonous. It also doesn’t help that unlike previous Real Grade box arts, there are no caution markings or any decals on the mobile suit.

Chances are, these might not be the final version of the packaging and they may change. Also, chances are they’re already final.

Box Art Extravaganza Fünfzehn This one’s old news as this box art was already revealed in one of the previous hobby shows. With a release expected to be around late this week, many are left to wonder how its old engineering would keep up with modern standards.
