The RX 93 Nu Gundam follows on the heals of the Sazabi Real Grade kit that was just announced. This was shown off at Tokyo Base in Diver City before more details at the 58th Shizuoka Hobby show. Much like the Movie Char counter attack, we had the Sazabi. And to even the playing field, we have the Nu Gundam (thank you Char by the way). Well known to have a psycho frame this kit’s Fin Funnels are ready to go with much more hyper articulation than most kits. Real grade kits are really (more and more) the only way to go for quality and detail.
Here are some more details translated from the Japansese site:
Various gimmicks to reproduce the setting mechanism and the poses in the play, and the original gimmicks based on real machine test results are condensed to 1/144 scale.
NU Gundam’s distinctive coloring is reproduced in molded color. The white body uses three light gray molded colors to increase information density.
Joints are built into the shoulders and abdomen, and can move flexibly. It enables twisting and shoulder extrusion, resulting in more dynamic posing.
Armor on the shoulder has a built-in mechanism that expands in tandem with the internal joint. By expanding the range of motion of the shoulder, reduce the interference between parts that occur in posing etc. holding an arm.
The lumbar joint moves finely for each block, expanding the movable range of the leg. The knee can be pushed forward widely, and a powerful pose with a wide stance can be produced even at 1/144 scale.
The legs are equipped with “Multilink Gimmick” where the armor slides in conjunction with the movement of each joint. Poses with large knees are also reproduced naturally.
