RX-0 Unicorn Gundam:

Unicorn's beam rifle:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/rx0_rifle.jpg
Unicorn's shield:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/rx0_shield.jpg
The shield is labeled "exclusive use", but the rifle isn't. I don't think this rifle has shown up with any of the other Gundam U.C. mecha yet, though.
The same Gundam Ace spread that had these images has a neat shot of how the rifle's e-pack is removed/replaced - it looks like it might be five e-packs (of the type used by the GP01, Hazel, Mk.II, Zeta, etc.) chained together with a handle attached to the end.

I labeled the shield as a custom type, since generally that's how the term has been tossed around in Gundam.

I don't think that's always the best option, though. If you automatically translate sen'you as "custom" then the Elmeth becomes a "Newtype custom mobile armor". It might be better simply to omit it in translation, giving us "Char's Zaku", "Newtype mobile armor", and "Unicorn shield".

Given by what I've seen on some posting on 2chan and what not, apparently it is a custom shield for the Unicorn Gundam, but I'm holding off until I can see the actual magazine myself to make that determination. I labeled it as custom in the instance of using that term with Char, considering that a majority of his things were 'custom'. Stretching it a tad, perhaps, but in this case and some of the information "presented" it can go either way.

Oh MAN, the Unicorn looks awesome. That shield and beam rifle are so freakin' sweet. And Loto's tank mode looks pretty sweet too.
Way to go, asterphage/

I fixed up the Loto some, using the art on the official site for color correction and fixing some of the details.
This image displays the MS at the same size as the original one I posted, so it clips off the antenna on the shoulder:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/loto_lg.jpg
This image has it at a smaller size, so that the antenna fits in the 400x400 box:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/loto_sm.jpg
(Here's a comparison of all three if anyone cares)

I'm working on getting a full Kshatriya out of the scans that have been posted and the official webpage but I may never finish that, 'cause the photoshopping work is kind of boring :3

Erm....On Loto's Profile is says it's based on the Guntank R-44 which is from UC 110s.....But isn't the Loto and the Unicorn from 0096?

The Unicorn looks very much like a Stargazer Version of Jegan.... There is also something 'bout it's designation and look that reminds me of the Turn A in terms of presence....very mystical.

And the Loto looks like something that isn't from Gundam....I don't know what though, but it looks dangerous.

The information in the R-44 profile is outdated. In one of our Unicorn discussion threads, there's extensive discussion about how the R-44 is the predecessor of the Loto.

In this post, which seems to be the most comprehensive commentary on the subject, the conclusion is "All of this makes it seem less likely that the Guntank R-44 could be the ancestor of a machine that's already in service as of U.C. 0096." While the MS design in Unicorn is obviously inspired by the MS design in F91, it seems like it was meant to be a mech produced before the R-44, which later led to the machine which was preserved in the museum until 0123.

yeah, is it not possible that the R-44 was built before UC 96?

Kshatriya time!

the full MS, using a couple of scans as well as the official site:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/nz-666-full.jpg

custom lineart of it without the shoulder binders attached:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... custom.jpg
Dunno if this is necessary, but it's rather easier to make out details in than the full view.

official art of it without the shoulder binders attached, from Gundam Ace:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... binder.jpg

shoulder binders, showing how the sub-arms unfold, ditto:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... subarm.jpg

funnel, ditto:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... funnel.jpg

I could probably do a better job of cleaning up the last three, but I'd rather wait until I have a chance to pick up the issue of Ace, or even just get some decent-quality scans of the pages.

So, today we've got the Starg- I mean, Unicorn, in its hype- I mean, "Destroy Mode".
Here's the art with the blinding pink glow around it:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... e-glow.jpg

And here's one where I trimmed off the pink glow all around, which I think makes the image a little clearer.

Sinanju time!

Here's the Not Sazabi:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/shinanju.jpg

and here's a larger-sized but messier copy of the cleaned-up scan, for you guys who are into that.

My best shot at cleaning up the Delta Plus, once again from a combination of the official site's image and a magazine scan...

best I can do with the Geara Zulus-
Here's the standard type:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/gearazulu.jpg
The commander type:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... mander.jpg
Angelo Sauper's custom magenta commander unit:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... uipped.jpg
Looks like it's meant to be using the Geara Doga Heavy Weapons Type's equipment.
Since the scan had all three images at approximately equal scale anyway, and it was easy enough to make the standard and command Zulus line up with each other in their images, I put together a custom image of Angelo's unit without all that equipment, using the details from the standard commander's Zulu.

Okay, first off, here's a new image of the Deltaplus:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... us_new.jpg
I made the colors match the official site's image more closely.
And I had a larger source image to work with this time, so here's a large version:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/deltaplus.png
Though it's still choppy in places.

And I don't know if this second item belongs in this section, but here it is - the Delta Gundam:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... dam_ms.jpg
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... dam_ma.jpg

And here are large versions, though they're pretty grainy.
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... dam_ms.png
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... dam_ma.png

The exact nature of this design (blueprinted by Anaheim but never built?) is discussed in this thread:
http://www.mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php? ... 200#147317
And this post on another site features images from the MS Graphica book that Mark mentioned,:
http://hk.myblog.yahoo.com/gundam_efsf/article?mid=512
It looks like those are the same CG renders of the Delta that were published alongside the new line art in Gundam Ace:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/ninjascience/1797399314/

So I guess the Delta Gundam is a MS Graphica original design that also appears in Gundam Ace FIX? I suppose it can't quite be considered to have "appeared" in Unicorn yet, since its description states that it's still unknown whether it was constructed. Still, now that there's this official design art, I think it should have a profile; at the very least it would be useful to link in the profiles for the Zeta and Hyaku Shiki.

And don't forget about the Geara Zulus from my last post!

With the release of the Master Grade Unicorn Gundam, I've got some fresh Unicorn art. Now, these are cleaned up versions of the Master Grade design for the RX-0, which is NOT the same as the novel version previously published in Gundam Ace and Hobby Japan. There are changes to the panel lines and detailing throughout, but most notably the forearms have been completely redesigned, probably to make the conversion to Destroy Mode more mechanically feasible.

Here are the full-size images:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/rx0_mg.png
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... roy_mg.png
And, at MAHQ size:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/rx0_mg.jpg
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/ ... roy_mg.jpg

Later on I'll have new images for the novel version, taking advantage of recent magazine scans to clean up some of the details.

The Jegan is here! Finally!
regular Jegan:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/jegan.jpg
Stark Jegan:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/starkjegan.jpg
I fabricated a bunch of stuff along its left side (on your right) but assuming it gets posted to the official site (or more complete scans show up) soon, I'll fix it as soon as the images are available.

Deacon cleaned up the Stark Jegan from the official site ages ago, but it has yet to go up on MAHQ.


And here are the Unicorn-version Jegan weapons:
