Release Date: November 2021
Price: 55,000 Yen

GunPla had just taken a huge step with this amazing announcement. The Gundam Unicorn is going to get a transformable bust model that also emits lights and produces sound effects and even voice acting from the original OVA series.

The automatic transformation also also produces both green (final battle) and red NT-D mode for the Unicorn Gundam. All transformation process are programmed in the CPU provided in the kit!

The bust model stands about 39cm tall up to the tip of its horns when fully transformed. See comparison image with a Real Grade model of the Unicorn Gundam.

The robot unit consists of multiple options in which you can choose which episode from Mobile Suit Unicorn Gundam OVA series you'd like to play - each episode will present different sound effects, music and lighting effects.

A special website showing all features and gimmicks of the transformable kit is available at the Bandai Hobby site: https://bandai-hobby.net/site/auto_trans/

  1. They really charging over $500 for a cut in half bust. I was pretty sure there was some 3rd party company that was making an actual unicorn bust that has auto transfromation for head, chest, and backpack. This official bandai bust should have been priced around $140 to $200. I don't see the price equaling the value of this bust.

    1. The 3rd party one had a bit of a jerry-rigged transformation method. Guess getting correct movement had a greater engineering cost. Dunno if it should be $300 more, but I'm sure that factored into it a bit.

  2. I absolutely agree. I understand that it is not an easy feat to pull something like this off but at this point they are completely ripping off the consumers. It is also worth mentioning that the gashapon version is half the price and offers the same features! Me and my friend were very excited about this and were happy to give over $200 each to get them but $500 is absolutely not worth it. Not in the slightest
