Gunpla TV – Episode 295 – Golden HGUC Unicorn 03 Phenex Destroy Mode (Narrative Ver.)

The Future is looking bright for Gunpla! This week we take a look at the shiny new HGUC Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex Destroy Mode (Narrative Ver.) with it’s fancy Gold Coating!! Keen viewers may remember we covered the non-gold coated version of this kit previously so this week is a good chance to compare how the more expensive coated kits stack up to the non-coated! A wild Haro Ball also makes an appearance!

In this episode:
1/144 HGUC Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex (Destroy Mode) (Narrative Ver.) [Gold Coating]
1/144 HGUC Unicorn Gundam Unit 3 Phenex (Destroy Mode) (Narrative Ver.)
Haropla Ball Haro
Super Mini-Pla Ninja Gattai Muteki Shogun: 1Box (5pcs)
Super Mini-Pla Getter Robo Armageddon Vol.1: 1Box (3pcs)

  3. I’d be interested in seeing what the sales numbers are for this Narrative Unicorn. I can’t imagine it is selling as well as previous versions what with those ridiculous twintails, but I also can’t imagine it not selling a whoooooole lot.

  4. Waiting on a kit to arrive, couldn’t get it because of postal worker strikes.

  5. Some say The Todd loves Balls…

    … but I’m just sitting here waiting for ‘Figure-rise Standard Ayame.’

  6. I’d like to see the Phenex in a matte gold, like the Hyaku Shiki 2.0 gold, that would be SIC!

  11. I second that, I would like to see more of the HLJ’s installations and people that work there that does not show regularly on camera.
    great job guys, love the show, and love HLJ, you should give away or sell some HLJ t-shirts!

  18. The gold played version of the Narrative Unicorn not being P-bandai makes me so happy. I can’t wait to get my hands on one when class is out.

    Reply
  19. All that gold is certainly intimidating. I would be super afraid of messing up the finish.

  20. If possible, I would love to see you guys replicating the Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative Anime Pose!

  24. Hello, would be glad to see “the room” too.. this room and Todd’s one… he always says there’s a ton of kits on his shelve 🙂 Always cool to look at a good well made mecha collection…

  25. Not really a fan of the Phenex, it’s just too gold. Then again, my favourite MS is the Hyaku Shiki, so I guess I’m just weird.

  26. great show guys! that gunpla is hella shiny:P

  27. Oh boy, the Phenex is such an eye-sore. Probably better when animated, that chrome gold is just so impractical. That said, it would make it easier to do stuff like weathering, since it’s likely that sort of effect in metal would dull over time, so things like sanding off the chrome where you want to apply battle damage would work fairly well (given the way typical manufacture of anything metal is usually applying a layer to a harder, but more corrodable metal, so it would present the dull plastic gold colour underneath).

    Speaking of stuff that tends to get missed out on Gunpla TV… any chance of us seeing the finished Gojulas The Ogre Todd was supposed to be finishing some time this millennium?

  28. Love that shiny gold colour phenex , really cool.

  30. My God, Todd looked like he had a hangover with those big sunglasses, hilarious. Now I understand why he was missing on the previous episode. Too much party!

    Reply
  31. I like the Phenex, but I love the Haro Ball

    Reply
  32. So close to 300 episodes. Better get everything ready ahead of time. Also would love to see who Todd will get into a lightsabre fight with next (now he will be ‘welcoming’ someone, just like Syd did to him).

    Reply
  33. Bandai really should start engineering all kits with undergates, gives them the freedom to make special coating releases that won’t have unfavorable words spoken with the unsightliness of nub marks.

    Reply
  34. The Phenex is so shiny and reflective on top of a really busy design. I love that it exists but have a hard time looking at it for more than a minute. 😎

  43. This shiny Phenex is it the secret hidden in the ark of the covenant. When you open the box, it will burn you away!

    Reply
  44. I don’t think I could ever go in that warehouse. I’d just stop and build everything in sight.

    Reply
  45. The one thing you never want to hear when building a kit is ‘click! click! SNAP!!!’
    So heartbreaking

  55. I gundpla tv episode without Todd does feel a bit strange as good as the other guests are. Welcome back!
