Re-designed Nu, yes. But calling this redesigned Hi Nu makes want to gouge my eyeballs out. It doesn't hold any of the spirit the original design had.

There's a joke about what asians do to things...

"If it ain't broken, make it better" :heh:

Which, in some cases wasn't always what happened :heh: :heh:

I do hope though that the inner frame of the end product is better designed that the MG Nu Gundam. I can probably name a number of externally good looking Gunpla that have atrocious inner bodies :heh:

Would you be refering to the "Lean concept"? I guess "lean" part of that would apply to this early design of the Hi-Nu, but not the continuous improvement aspect. :p

Still, I'll wait until Bandai starts coming out with prototypes before I give up on the Hi-Nu.

What did I say about the 2500 yen difference ? Can't buy much right ?

duotiga 2006-12-07 07:21

but still..i like the boxart :D nw is tempted whether to get both or not....

LoweGear 2006-12-07 07:23

Now I'm wondering what happened to that spider stand... although it doesn't look like a slapped together with sticky tape model unlike the initial pics.

MakubeX2 2006-12-07 07:28

The only thing worthy to note for the SP is the Gold Plating, which experienced modellers will avoid at all cost.

It's much cheaper to get the normal edition (4500 yen) with the stand (550 yen). For the Dragoon effects, go get some thin wires and DIY. It much better than the effects Bandai is giving us with the SP.

I think the marketing strategy appeals to the larger consumer base that don't really know that a can of shiny, glittery paint exists. That and I think the "I have no time" consumers vastly outweigh the, experienced modelers :heh:

I love that box art. Now, if they were to make a MG Destiny Gundam I doubt there will be any special plating required....I wonder what kind of box art it would have.

Maybe they would feel the urge to include translucent WoL? :heh: :heh:

Or a light up one for that matter...

DarkWarrior 2006-12-07 10:49

Wow, the DRAGOONs look so ugly with the messy wires going all over the place. Eww.

I would've been happier if they just included the spider stand with some clear plastic WoL attachments. At least it'll look better than the eyesore we have right here.

MakubeX2 2006-12-07 16:33

For those still insisting to get the SP, there's no hurry.

Just save up and wait until the next reissue. But I'll prefer you to get the normal edition and the stand first, fix it up and use some wires for the Dragoon Effects. See if your obessesion still exist after that before deciding to get the SP.

Akyra 2006-12-07 22:16

Damn, that boxart looks good! I have to agree with DarkWarrior. The 'goon effects are messy. It looks too crowded and I thought they were gonna give us TWO beamshields?

It never said that. Someone misread it earlier, and people have been referencing the missinformation.

It said 2x beam sabers and the beam shield in the special whateveryoucall it thin plastic.

I guarantee that most of the inexperienced modelers who buy it will end up inadvertantly making it look like that.

saw this:
--> http://www.bandai-hobby.net/english/item.html
under the [mg] strike freedom gundam, it said:
--> ★ Two beam sabers and two beam shields (made with extra thin PET) included.

M_Flores 2006-12-08 04:58

Ah, looks like it's gonna be wings of paper on this one for me v_v;...

blind_ 2006-12-08 05:16

don't really hv time (or exp) to spray so the fb/sp kit is appealing,
but then i don't need the other accessories and the spider stand looks so much better.
