HG RX-0 Unicorn Gundam [Unicorn Mode] English Manual and Color Guide

1/144 HGUC RX-0 Unicorn Gundam [Unicorn Mode] English Construction Manual and Color Guide

Banagher Link's RX-0 Unicorn Gundam from the Gundam Unicorn OVA. This time released as a High Grade model kit by Bandai in "Unicorn Mode" This is the default mode of the Gundam Unicorn. Once certain parameters are met the Gundam Unicorn transforms to Destroy Mode where it expands to an even bigger version of itself.

Bandai of course made a High Grade version of the Gundam Unicorn in Destroy Mode. I'm wondering now, why Bandai wasn't able to configure the High Grade version of the Gundam Unicorn to transition to Destroy Mode like it can in the Master Grade version. Must be because of the cost factor involved, but that's just me thinking *snicker*

The 1/144 HGUC RX-0 Unicorn Gundam [Unicorn Mode] is selling for 1100 yen at Amiami, 1050 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1200 yen at Hobby Search.
