Thanks for the input from those who responded. I went to a local collector show last night and found a GP02A and the FAZZ full armor both master grade. So I will probly end up ordering the IWSP next. Though I'll probly just stick to painting and paneling these 2 seeing how much there is to both I really don't wanna try my first full custom on them. Ill probly end up messing around with puddy on my Gundam X 1/100s I have to try my hand at it.

Its a good thing they finally decided to re-design and (re)release the Hi-Nu. The original looked pretty damn crappy in my opinion.

AnimePaul 2006-12-21 15:46

Was the original Hi-Nu ever released in MG form before?

jbui 2006-12-21 15:49

Nope, only converison or resin kits.

Meehlimo 2006-12-21 17:32

I liked the bulky hi nu looked more tough this skiny one makes it look like it could be bitchslaped into pieces.:(

The Alpha Numbers have something to say to you regarding your opinion on their senior field commander's mecha.

Ok is there a major difference between the aile strike + skygrasper pg kit and the rogue strike + skygrasper kit? cuase there seems to be a $100 difference just wondering why and if it was worth spending more on the rogue?

AlphaDragoon 2006-12-21 18:53

That Full Burst Strike Freedom looks pretty damn awesome...but no WoL-esque flares for the exposed wings? They very clearly showed in Final Plus that those things come out when the DRAGOONs are in flight.

LOL XD


I gotta admit though that one of the reasons why I digged the Hi-v look was because it looked like a beefier, bulkier, Obelisk-The-Tormentor version of the original v Gundam. If they skin it down, then IMHO, what's the point of this Hi-v then, might as well just get the original v Gundam if you want a sleek, skinnier look.

Oh wow, only a few visible joint pieces are gold plated. The disappointment continues..

More pictures

M_Flores 2006-12-21 20:29

Hmm... I'm thinking maybe mounting a Legend or Destiny Gundam on that stand and turn the dragoons around to make it look like SF's dragoons are firing at them, lol.

The poster is also rather disappointing though. I at least wanted some cool artwork or portrait of SF.

This man/woman/whatever has gained the wisdom of ages and captured my thoughts exactly.

SNT1 2006-12-21 20:55

lol, I thought the SF FB mechanism parts are plated all over. Makes it even less worth it; the only thing that makes it worth it (to those who buys the FB mode) is the Barbie-Accessory jewelry boxart of the FB mode.

oh, and its Nu Gundam, not v Gundam (thats a different mecha altogether)

kct 2006-12-21 21:07

At least I'm not expecting to be interested in SF at all. Well, back to the plan for the Zeta 2.0 or see what happens next year.

Meehlimo 2006-12-21 21:54

I thought they were putting 2 frames in it? 30 more dollers for a second stand and a few chrome pieces is criminal.

He was using the Greek letter for Nu, which looks like a "v". So technically it's correct.

It's about 20 dollars more expensive, not 30. But still, this screams ripoff.. looks like Bandai outsmarted us all.

I wonder how many gundam fanboys will go insane over this. :D

kct 2006-12-21 22:49

My eyes burned. Believe it. And I'm not even a fanboy of any universe.

dagr81 2006-12-21 22:49

i was going to get the SF and now that i no this i think i will stick to my wing zero
and my only model

MakubeX2 2006-12-22 00:00

Regarding the slimmed down version of the Hi-Nu, if you look at things from another angle at how it originated, it kinda look appropiate.

Hi-Nu was how the Nu is suppose to look like in the novel before it got sort of redesign for the movie. But somehow the design of the Hi-Nu got beefed up later on.

So my point being, that should people not think of the Hi-Nu as a upgraded beefed up form of the Nu but as how the Nu is suppose to turn out, it's actually not so bad.

SNT1 2006-12-22 00:07

^"beefed-up Hi-Nu" is probably all the finished G-sys kits we are so used to. I guess looking at it that way it isn't too bad, considering most G-sys variations have rather radical proportions anyway (i.e. bigger shouldered Ex-S, better Ex-S!)

When I say original, I meant the one from Char's Counter Attack.

- Tak (Admit it, you know for a fact Sazabi in that looked so much holier)

WaytoDawn 2006-12-22 00:33

This is a serious dissapointment...they charge an extra 20 bucks for this???I seriously want to sue bandai for giving such a messed up SF...They gave the action base instead of a custom stand,that i can tolerate. BUT THIS?!?!Only certain visible parts are gold plated????ARGH!!

thats it....money gone down the drain....now then....to try and save this wacky job from bandai. Any1 recomend a good type of gold paint?

kct 2006-12-22 00:34

Well, this Hi-Nu is what the designer wanted to tell people on 'how Hi-Nu was supposed to look like from the start'.

You said Hi-Nu in your post, not Nu. So what original are you talking about now.

And which 'Nu' was available in CCA? I mean, if you can't figure it out by now, there is really nothing I can add.

- Tak

dodgethis_sg 2006-12-22 01:44

What? You think I am like 75% of the people here who can't tell the difference between the Nu and Hi-Nu?

Let's take your original post in context and break it down.

"Its a good thing they finally decided to re-design and (re)release the Hi-Nu. The original looked pretty damn crappy in my opinion. "

In your first sentence you are talking about the redesigned Hi Nu. And in the second you are calling the original crappy. Since you do not specify which original you are refering to, the second sentence automatically implies that you are calling the original Hi Nu design crappy.

So now, you can go GEMU GIRU GAN GO GTFO.

SNT1 2006-12-22 02:41

either way, I can't agree that CCA Nu and original Hi-Nu lineart is remotely close to 'crappy' XD Pure 'Buchi goodness on both of these.

sx3 2006-12-22 03:02

original Hi-Nu looked better :(

I don't know, and I don't care. Although I am sure those 75% of the people here would be offended by that very comment. Nonetheless, it has nothing to do with me.

I won't stop you from exercising the right to mis-interpret my post anyway you wish. I've explained enough.

012Zer0 2006-12-22 08:01

all they have to do now is make a MG Nightengale...

lycantivis 2006-12-22 11:43

Can any one tell me the difference between http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN938257 Rogue striker + Skygrasper and the http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN934101 Aile striker + Skygrasper? Cause there is a 100 dallor difference in price between the two. Is the rogue model that much better than the aile? Or is there something I'm missing? Like is the aile 1/100?

DarkWarrior 2006-12-22 12:24

The PG Skygrasper only includes the Skygrasper and the Aile Striker pack. The actual Strike Gundam is a separate item. On the other hand, the PG Rouge + Skygrasper includes the Skygrasper, Aile Striker pack, and the actual Strike Gundam itself (in pink colors).

In other words, if you bought the PG Skygrasper, you would need to also buy the PG Strike Gundam. PG Strike Rouge just combines the PG Skygrasper and PG Strike into one nice package, in pinkish colors.

Hope that helps.

lycantivis 2006-12-22 12:35

Oh ok. Thanks for explaining that it was buging me on the price difference and not knowing why. I started my GP02A last night looks so good so far. Keep in mind I have never done a MG or PG so to me its amazing I'm sure I am going to just die when I do PG. I am going and geting the MG IWSP rogue strike tonight along with some gundam markers and paints to start with.

lycantivis 2006-12-22 12:44

Why the sigh? Its a really kewl looking model in my oppinion, of nice size and has a stand. There something I need to know about it? Cuase tak like many of the members that post on this thread I rate highly cause yours and others work is amazing.

lycantivis 2006-12-22 13:02

Thats what I mean thats an amazing custom! Yea the kampfer has turned out alot of kewl looking customs, personally I'm not a big fan of the zaku faction types but I know a good looking model when I see one. Probly the only ones I like are the kampfer and the Sazabi.

SNT1 2006-12-22 16:04

The Kampfer looks too messy with its camo/weathering (I cant even tell at first glance!).

The Strike looks great however. Not the IWSP. The pack makes the whole thing suck. If an Aile is put in place itll look awesome :P
