It is not hard to see why the STANDart Destroy Mode Unicorn is popular. It stands tall against most 1/220 figures and the shiny red transparent parts are just everywhere on this thing. If not for the extensive detail and eye candy though, this figure does come around as very two dimensional and a bit flat. Perhaps a little bend to the arms or knees would have made it feel a bit more three-dimensional.

The STANDart F91 as a figure is very detailed but suffers a bit from the "early STANDart build", where certain parts are exceptionally willing to fall out of their sockets. While not as exaggerated as with the first generation STANDart figures, the arms and shoulder mounted beam rifles do have a tendency to come off even during gentle handling (the same problem is replicated in my blue figure). Another low point is the lack of other in-universe figures for the F91 to pose with. There's the (huge) Assault Kingdom Jegan I guess, and aforementioned Crossbone Gundams. It is such a shame that the awesome Crossbone Vanguard mobile suits are yet to break into anything bigger than SD format.
FusionWorks delivered another mighty fine STANDart set here. It is obviously still in demand considering the relative rarity and high prices of these figures today. If you are just starting out with a STANDart collection just remember that you can pick up 5-6 of the cheaper figures for what you will be asked to pony up here.
