I actually think it looks pretty cool. It adds a bit of design to an otherwise relatively plain looking Gundam.

Also what's wrong with Bandai milking the Unicorn series? It's currently the new running series (or OVA series to be precise), it's popular, and Unicorn is within UC timeline so it can make sense. =)

It kind of makes the Unicorn itself less unique in my opinion. The whole point of the Unicorn was to have a Gundam that has a complete psycho frame and now the Nu, which is much older than the Unicorn, does the exact same thing.
I know it's just a non-canonical redesign but in my opinion this kind of makes it look like they are trying to milk Unicorn even harder than they already are^^
Well the Unicorn was supposed to be developed from the Nu so guess it having a partial P-Frame is fine by me.
But I like this look much better than the older vers. It's much more mechanical looking than the more smooth style.
As that older style feels abit dated to me, just like with the RX-78(altho it's newer updates aren't bad)
Sadly very few gundams have that classical look that can uphold through time unlike say some classical cars.

Will be getting Nu regardless, it's simply awesome looking now

Agreed. =)
As you know, I'm not really well versed in UC series. I didn't know that Nu was supposed to be developed into Unicorn, but I do see similarities there so it makes sense that the Nu Gundam would have psychoframe showing.

I would say Gundam Mk.II and (especially) Zeta Gundam's design are timeless. You can put them side-by-side with any other modern Gundams and they won't look outdated .

What "BOOM"? Zeta still looks sexy and futuristic next to 00 Qant, Exia, 00 Raiser, etc any time .

Zeta...00 mecha designs.

Nope. 00 is way more futuristic and streamlined.

Streamlined doesn't always make them better.

In fact to many people it can be a huge problem, very much something you hear alot when people who prefer Wing Gundam Zero to Wing Gundam Zero EW.

Not the hugest fan of Zeta, but I do think that Zeta and more so HS can easily stand next to anything from SEED/OO/Age.

I agree. The MK-II is one of my favourite designs and its definitely a a timeless design. While I'm not the biggest fan of the Zeta, it looks more futuristic then a lof the other designs out there.

I think the semi-psychoframe on the new MG NU is meant to emulate the end of the movie where Amuro overloaded it to push back Axis.
The model interpretation of it is obviously a nod to the unicorn, and a cool gimmick, but the in-canon explanation doesn't from out of nothing.

Makes sense, but I never saw much of UC at all aside from 08th MS Team and random episodes of various series here and there.

Well, as a newly minted UC fan, they can milk Unicorn for all I care.

Nu looks amazing. But isn't it supposed to have a psychoframe cockpit only, and not around the entire MS?

I think about the final scene of CCA,where there is that amount of particles,maybe there was a chest,arms break to release the particles and we don't see it in the show.. and like Bonta Kun said the Unicorn is a develop of the Nu,so a psycoframe that "appear" from nothing (in the Unicorn) is less "magic", I know,but it more justified by the presence of this in the Nu..

otherwise,it's a choise to reveal the frame..

MG Nu Ver Ka. is definitely a buy for me. From all the features that have been given to us, the price tag looks like its worth it for this model.

All the more reason you should go and watch all the UC series, at least watch the Original series, Zeta, ZZ, and CCA

Really disappointed Bandai cheaped out on the white plastic for the claws and the fuel tanks. Guess I'll have to try my hand at some proper painting.

So far all of the Zulu kits from Unicorn have been built really sturdy. I really like the Zee Zulu's. Hopefully Angelos Rozen is built just as good, with all its display pieces.
