Since its announcement, many fans have been asking whether the life-size Unicorn Gundam can transform or not. Fans have previously taken pictures of the statue’s construction, and they seem to confirm it can. However, Bandai itself still hasn’t confirmed it officially. But now, through Gundam.info, they’ve officially confirmed that the Life-size Unicorn Gundam can transform between Unicorn Mode and Destroy Mode.
They are officially calling the statue “RX-0 Unicorn Gundam Ver. TWC (Tokyo Waterfront City)”. According to Gundam.info, it measures in at 19.7m in height, which of course is taller than its predecessor. The original RX-78-2 Gundam which stood in Odaiba only measured in at 18m in height. Gundam.info also revealed that the statue will weigh in at approximately 49 tonnes.
As for its debut date, Gundam.info has also confirmed that Bandai will unveil the statue on 24th September 2017.
Beside the statue, they will also have a Gundam shop called Gundam Trailer Shop. It also opens on 24th September, and will boast a variety of GunPla and other Gundam merchandise.
