Recently, there was a massive raid done by the Shanghai police on a large factory that produces unlicensed Gundam plastic models. The raid was a huge blow to the bootleg Gundam industry, bringing down one of the biggest illegal plastic model manufacturers in China.
And in gratitude for that raid, Bandai has gifted the Shanghai police with a one-of–kind GunPla. This GunPla is a golden Unicorn Gundam, and is from their Mega-Size model line of 1/48 scale GunPla models.
The special model is now on display inside one of Shanghai’s police precincts. Surely it is a tempting thing to steal, but remember that this is in the middle of a police station…
China has been cracking down on many bootleg merchandise as of late, also recently raiding a factory manufacturing bootleg anime figures.
