HUGE! That is the first thing that you will notice with the box and the head display itself. This was only released in Japan, you can only get it if you win the top prize in the 7/11 Gundam Raffle. If I remember it correctly, it was 900 yen per try. Gundam Unicorn fans will surely love this Banpresto Gundam Unicorn Head Display. Among the hauls last week, this one is one of the boxes we were excited to open. Because of it’s size, we were thinking that it might be around the 1/25 to 1/30 scale. But I am thinking 1/27 is the exact scale. Anyway, it can change from the Normal mode to the Destroy mode, depends on how you want to display it. Initially it is packed in the Destroy mode. Colors are nice, glossy and seems to be made of good quality paint. Plastic quality is very typical of Banpresto brand but good quality if you ask me. Lastly… Awesomeness level – 10/10! I really love the play and display value of this head display!

See how nice the colors are? 🙂
I must say I am impress with this… I think a little light mod and some panel scribing will give it a more awesome look!
Transforming to NORMAL mode
Exploded view of the parts
Now lets see the manual on how to convert to normal mode
Ok then, first thing to do is remove the face! Waaah!
Replace it with the normal mode face
Then put it back 🙂
Now we should flip the cheek armors 180 degrees like what we do to the MG kit
Like this 🙂
Front view – left is the destroy mode, right is the normal mode
Then use the extra horn clip to position the horns like shown below
