MG Hi-Nu that Gunota just posted. I think I'm used to the redesign now.. it looks pretty good.

sadly for me all i can say is that i will never respect this design unless it gets animated to win my heart over, whcih probably wont happen. i have much love for the original Hi-Nu design :( In all honesty, i prefere the Nu Gundam design over this too :(

LightningZERO 2007-01-26 09:00

It looks great to me. Have an unusual but yet great mixing of blue and white. Hopefully I will have enough money to buy it when it is released

duotiga 2007-01-26 09:36

i also like colour the combi...as for me i am quite used to the overall redesign....time to save up...cannot imagine being 2x in a mth spending 100++ for kits.....

Hmmm, I wonder if i can get staff discounts if I work for them...so tempted to learn japanese and apply for jobs at Bandai now...or even at Bandai America...

HGUC is getting better and MG is going down the drain. This is the opinion of modeller's in Singapore I know. And mine.

Our reasons?

1. HGUC Powered GM and GM Striker are just so damn awesome in detail and articulation. Not to mention their low price tag of 1200 yen.
2. MG Hi Nu and it's inability to stand on it's own two feet without support. This is very obvious in March's Dengenki Hobby. Almost every shot of it has a clear plastic block supporting it. I'll bet it'll have a lot less plastic than the MG Sentinel FAZZ yet costs 1100 yen more.

1. There's a stand, use it, it looks awesome. Otherwise its easy to stuff up the legs to add more balance

2. FAZZ has always been the leader of plastic per unit price, so everything else will pale in comparison. But I so agree MGs have gone up in price lately. I think its the abuse of ABS plastic that drives up the price, but thats just my opinion

And your opinion somehow gets more validation cuz your modellers?

almost every kit in hobby magazines has plastic cubes and support and whatnot to hold them up. Its no surprise. Hi-Nu doesnt need a stand to stay standing, it needs a stand cuz its a laregly space-use mobilesuit (GP01FB for example looks, very awkward standing around doing jack squat, same fo Gp03. Hell, Ex-S can stand on its own too, stand included for obvious reasons.)

Have you built or seen the MG Strike Freedom? its backpack effectivly doubles its overall wieght and yet it can very easily stand on its own WITHOUT any awkward positions. (my review of it). Hell, the backpack for the Hi-nu doesnt even look half as substantial as the SF, so i dont think backheaviness will be an issue.

On the price of the Hi-nu...im guessing its the stand and the Funnel affect parts, not to mention the size of the gundam. Though it is surprising to see it at that price without the metal joints...

As for the bit about HGUCs...the majority of the models iv build are MGs or NG/HG 1/100s but thanks to AoZ, iv done a few Hazels and the Hrairoo. The AoZ material is quite...plain and ok, nothing great. What was great was the HG Strike Noir i did that really was 'next-gen'. In essence, the HG Noir was a HG with MG quality without the inner frame.

really, the quality of the kits isnt getting stale, rather the opposite unless youre doing rehashes/repackages/recolours.

EDIT: nevermind. it did now.



Anyway I'm glad that this erh... Lo-Nu kit doesnt come in two editions like SF did, so I can the complete package get it anytime without having to wait for specific re-issues.

Akyra 2007-01-26 20:41

EDIT: Whoops, mis-read the msg. But still, release so many models like this...still BLOODY BANDAI

Unpainted sample. Looks great despite all the naysayers.

duotiga 2007-01-28 06:36

hhhmm...didnt know Hi-Nu includes hyper Bazooka also......

M_Flores 2007-01-28 07:26

It doesn't look bad at all. In fact, it looks tuff. Very tuff. But, as said many times, the bulky, beasty Hi-n was a big part of the reason I was into it in the first place. ZZ or Ex-S just doesn't do it for me, it has to be a Nu. This Hi-n still looks good, but it doesn't have the presence of the fictional beasty old Hi-n. If I wanted a slick and slim, slender type over powered MS, that's why there are the Freedoms - I don't need that in a Hi-n. Anyway, that's my opinion. It would be cool though, if Bandai included extra parts to kinda build this Hi-n to finish up the original bulky design as the modeller see's fit. Oh well, I guess there are still the resin kits.

LoweGear 2007-01-28 07:45

From the pics, it looks like Hi-Nu is actually stable enough to stand unaided without those clear plastic supports O_o

DarkWarrior 2007-01-28 11:50

Looks like a very solid kit. But I just noticed that Hi-Nu has no place to store its bazooka like the original Nu did, which is slightly disappointing.

The shield weapons are also noticeably gone

Fome 2007-01-28 20:40

I'm just wondering if it's already been established if this kit will sport the internal frame of some of the newer MGs. I would hope that it could hold up that bazooke straight forward without sagging. I hope it will have at least Strike Gundam level articulation.

Meehlimo 2007-01-29 01:24

Lol i cant say anything about the frame cuz of costs but articulation u can deff bet its 5X bettter than strike cuz its a newer kit. Bandai has deff been making an effort to refine the kits frames.

Look at the PG-esque details of the internal frame. A pity Bandai choose to do away the diecast metallic parts of the Nu for this.

Meehlimo 2007-01-29 07:15

wow damn that awsome now we know y the price tag is so high....
