Anyone here own the MG Nu Gundam?
I was curious to know how they like it.
What are the pros/cons?
I know on Dalong's that it scored a 97 which is great but I couldn't read the explicit details mentioned.

dj898 2007-02-27 23:51

ok... straight from horse's mouth - I mean ^__^

Dalong Point - 97 pts

Seam Line - Head. And did I say Head?
Poseability - less than stellar with legs but overall excellent
Joints - One of the best in the MG line up except its fingers
Inner Frame - Beginning of full body inner frame
Options - Excellent
Parts No. - 421 parts
Overall Impression - Amuro's last MS. One of best joint, best proportion (not its head) and best action pose.

Updates Galore~
...well no, the usual


From The Gundam Base.Side 1:
MG Strike Noir
HGUC Gelgoog/Gelgoog Cannon
HGUC Blue Destiny Unit 2
HCM-Pro Gundam Ground-Type
HCM-Pro Gelgoog (Kuspen version) + HCM-Pro Gelgoog (MS IGLOO version)
HCM-Pro Freedom Gundam
EX Model Hildolfr
HG SEED Destiny kits (clear versions)
1/100 Akatsuki Full Set
MG Strike Noir
as i thought...mainly the same deal as the MG Strike with new armour...still this looks like a winner. Also, it just me or do those arms not flex as much as the MG Strike's any case...this is a must-get

1/100 Akatsuki
This too looks rather nice...if only it wasnt so damned expensive...

HMC Pro Freedom
THIS is very interesting...take a look at This image...isnt this exposed area under the cockpit exactly where...*best left for another thread i think*

duotiga 2007-02-28 09:08

i am getting the strike noir is akatsuki :D

LoweGear 2007-02-28 10:08

*gasps for air at seeing Strike Noir boxart*

THAT is the most AWESOME MG Boxart EVER O_O

Of course, it graces a kit that's just as awesome, even if it isn't 100% original like I would hope. But it is a beautiful kit XD

if it's the correct size, you wouldn't wore out the screw head even if you forcefully try to turn it on. this is of course base on the user using the screw driver correcty by inserting even force on the screw head while turning and not just turning without inserting enough force for the screw head and the screw driver tip to mate correctly.

The reason I said hobby shops is because normal hardware stores wouldn't have those tiny screws since 99.9999999% of their customers wouldn't need to buy them for their job. you can also try radio shack and maybe some computer stores since they might have similar screws used on mounting drives or small fans.

I can assure you that the screw driver tip is not worn out.
Thanks for the tip on Radioshack. I hadn't thought of that.

The strike noir looks quite cool. I especially love the noir pack, but I have a few complaints.

The gold triangles on each shoulder look like they will be stickers. I really wish they would actually have a separate gold piece underneath that shows through triangular holes, but alas, I'm fairly certain this won't happen.

Those monochromatic pistols and ball-pivot turrets are going to look horrible if not panel-lined properly. The pistols in particular look like they're made from just three pieces--right side, left side, handle. If they just had even one extra piece in a different shade of grey, they would look significantly better.

Meehlimo 2007-02-28 14:20

If i have any complaint about the awsomeness of the MG strike noir its that it still has the orginal strikes hands instead of the new 2.0 peg hands which imo should be standard on all new kits.we really dont need the 200 diff hands it comes with just 1 multi use set anyone agree?

Fome 2007-02-28 14:39

I personally like the multiple hands better. You get cooler looking finger poses with those. The multi-purpose hand always looks somewhat curled up.

LoweGear 2007-02-28 16:50

In terms of playability the multiarticulated-hands are better, however the fixed posed hands not only look better, they're also much sturdier, and you get to have fingers posed in ways you can't do with the current limited articulation of the poseable hands. Sure the lack of a Ver. 2.0 wrist joint is disconcerting, but it's not like you're gonna make the Noir do handstands or katas all the time (unless that's what you're after). Anyways, B-Club's bound to make fixed pose hand sets for the Noir anyway, so it's no big loss.

IMHO, unless the model has incredibly big hands (MG Rick Dias and PG's), fixed pose hands are much better on most models.

DarkWarrior 2007-02-28 18:29

IIRC, the original Strike frame doesn't even have pegs on the hands, so I guess it's a good thing they decided to go with fixed posed hands which can hold the weapons properly.

And the model looks pretty good overall, but I'm disappointed by the lack of a stand (It's the most expensive Strike variant so far too..).

kct 2007-02-28 18:55

...I don't know, but giving it a movable waist is the final nail to me...

it includes a gundam action base stand as shown in the pics.:)

Shinji103 2007-02-28 20:23

Personally, I like the fixed hands better for stability as well.

Akyra 2007-02-28 23:27

Question, how do you guys panelline your gunpla? Like what sort of pens do you guys use? Can you actually use the Artline range to do the job?

I'm not so sure about that. In their HGUC Blue Destiny pics they also have the Blue Destiny on an Action Base :twitch:

It'll be good if they did include an action base, but let's not jump to conclusions just yet.

DarkWarrior 2007-03-01 00:00

Yup, Gundam Base uses the Action Base often to do some dynamic poses for its promo pictures. Just because it's shown in the picture doesn't mean it'll be included.

And if there was any lingering doubt, Bandai's Hobby Site pretty much confirms that no stand of any kind will be included.

Edit: Wait, what the hell..? According to Bandai's site, the Zeta recolor is due out March? Huh...

LoweGear 2007-03-01 00:23

LOL @ Bandai Hobby's description on MG Strike Noir:

★ Hand gun, giant sword, and rifles can be held in the wrists with snapping functions.
★ The shoulder armor can rotate and open, and thigh armors can be slided to show the inner mechanism from the openings.
★ Hand gun (for side armor), giant sword, duel beam rifle, wrists, gun-holding wrists, and hands are included.

I'm thinking someone was thinking of Strike Freedom too much when they wrote this...

Akyra 2007-03-01 03:08

According to their Jap site, they are re-releasing the old 1/60 Gouf and Doms, but they didn't mention anything about that on the Eng site...
