Gundam Fix Figuration Metal Composite Unicorn Gundam (Destroy Mode)

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.

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.
