This post serves as a pictorial guide of the transformation of Gundam Fix Metal Composite Unicorn Gundam from Unicorn mode to Destroy mode.
First, start off the sequence by shouting at the figure in Unicorn mode, "Transform!" If that doesn't work, try "Henshin". Then "Destoroy". After exhausting the above options, you should realise that you're supposed to perform the transformation with your own hands.
Pull out both ends of the chest.
Flip up both transparent red bits with the end of a beam saber.
Pull the torso upwards to reveal more translucent red parts.
Next lift the top portion of the shoulders up.
It should look like this first.
Then rotate the triangular piece upwards till it flushes with the top portion of the shoulder.
Grip the wrists and pull downwards.
Extend the forearm outwards.
We're mostly done with the torso, with the chest and head transformation left, but I'll leave it to the last for dramatic effect.
Let's start with the pelvic region.
Flip the fly open.
dick red part outwards and align the fly with it.
Next flip the flaps of the front skirt up and pull the side skirts down. This is easier done if you detach the skirts.
Remove the rear side skirts.
Flip out the rear centre cover.
Pull the hips away from the groin.
Align the two metal bits with the plastic.
The return the rear centre cover to it's original position to lock the metal bits down.
Put the rear side skirts back.
Flip the covers of the side skirts to reveal boosters.
The backpack has a simple transformation which involves flipping then turning the beam saber outwards, and finally revealing the side boosters.
Pull the thighs downwards to reveal more red bits.
Flip the top of the knees backwards.
And the bottom parts outwards.
Pull the red bits out.
Turn the tip of the lower knee towards the red bit.
Then flip the top part of the knee down.
Pull the grey parts outwards.
And pull the ankle downwards.
Lock the grey parts back and flip up the back of the calves.
Move the flaps on the front of the feet towards the shin.
Pull the front part of the feet downward and forward.
Then flip the heel outwards.
The last bit for the lower body involves moving the parts on the side of the feet to point upwards.
Back to the head.
Turn the horn to the side and pluck it out.
Place the v-fins on.
Pluck the two parts on the side of the head out.
Flip the top of the head up to reveal Destroy mode's head.
Pull Destroy mode's head outwards and flip Unicorn mode's head inwards.
Till the whole head downwards.
And reattach the pieces on the side that were removed earlier.
Finally, flip down the chest plates.
Reattach all the weapons used in Destroy mode and the transformation is complete.
Here he is with Gundam Fix Figuration Metal Composite RX-78.
I had initially thought that there was nothing much in this figure's transformation but it proved me wrong. The transformation process was so fun that I went through it about six times the day I scored this.
If you're a big fan of the Unicorn Gundam anime, this is indeed a must-score figure.
