  3. I feel like I'm being plunked. And wasn't the old MG Nu Gundam designed by Katoki anyways?

    1. hell no, the designer of Nu Gundam was Yutaka Izubuchi.

      Delete
    2. What I meant was Katoki did lineart for the [previous] Master Grade.

      Anyways, I guess we now know what the next UC Real Grade WON'T be.
      (I still say it's GP01)

    3. The next rg is going to be destiny. I don't realy like destiny, but I'm probably going to buy it since I thought RX-78 was the most boring design EVAR, but it was my first real grade because real grade versions are always look amazing.

    2. Yeah me to maybe Sazabi will be next.

    3. Is it a 2.0? Probably. Or probably not. We have MGs like Wing ver.Ka which is basically a redesign of Wing Zero Custom, or RX-78-2 ver.Ka which is widely considered as ver 1.5 (before ver 2.0 existed).

      Ver 2.0 significant features are super articulation and moveable fingers. With how things are going now, they are probably sticking with the swappable hands, and knowing ver.Ka lineups, articulation isn't its strongest points (but aesthetics is).

      Delete
    4. Articulation not strong in ver Ka??? I think the Gundam Wing Ver Ka's have something to say about that.

      2.0 is fair to say, partly because anything is an upgrade over the original Mg. While it was cool to have metal parts for the waist, it looked horrendous. The head was too big for its body, and it has that "too much weight on one wide" problem. Now, that's to be expected and the metal was supposed to offset the weight but it didn't.

      Delete
  5. I guess it's a reworked project with the katoki label, like with his previous mobile suit designs. So excited for this information.

  6. Success, so glad I didn't buy the original version!!

  8. Bandai's using the Nu Gundam evolve ver. as a possible design! Sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  9. So Katoki is gonna ruin Nu Gundam too with non-existent waist and LEGS. And people are looking forward to it? One of you fools even thought Katoki designed Nu?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Your ignorance speaks for you. Nu Gundam design is Izubuchi's work, not Katoki. He also designed some ZZ suits (Dreisen, Hamma Hamma) and all War in the Pocket mechanics.

      Delete
    2. wow such an arrogant pr*ck. any form of design is and always will be subjective anyway. majority loves katoki's slimmed/toned versions that's why seeing a lot of people here are excited. no need to rub your opinion and call somebody a fool just because their preference differs from yours. too childish. i feel sorry for you.

      Delete
    3. This is robot sir, who need too-human proportion structure? If you don't like Katoki's work, just say it, no need to call someone fool just beacuse they glad to see ver. KA

      Delete
    4. @Elvin: He didn't say Katoki designed it; he was only commenting that other people thought he did.

      I'll miss the Izubuchi design, as much as I wanted a 2.0 of Nu I'm not sure I'll like this version, but I'll wait till I see it.

      That said, Katoki's favorite song must be ZZ Top's "Legs".



      Delete
    5. You are right, sorry, I take my words back. Still, it was a really an unnecesary and inflamatory post. Anyway, I love Izubuchi design too, but I'm really looking foward for this one, not only because I like Katoki's work (I hate those microscopic red decals he seems to love to put all over the suit, though) but also because the old MG was so dispropotionated that it crying out loud for a new kit for a long time.

      Delete
  10. While I am rather stoked that the MG Nu will be getting a re-designed kit, I finally just bought the VP Nu Evolve conversion kit T_T!! Talk about timing LOL

    ReplyDelete
  11. The only downer for the Nu Gundam would be if it's like Wing Gundam Ver. Ka. which was based upon the Wing Zero model. Then again, I hope they do have a redesigned inner frame for Nu Gundam and something that'll keep the fin funnels from tipping the suit backward (perhaps even recycle the frame from Hi-Nu Gundam).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Uhm, no offense but the Wing Zero EW was based off the Wing Ver Ka.. And chances are this MG Nu will have a entirely new frame. Cant use the Hi-Nu, Hi-Nu being shorter than Nu by 2meters. The original MG had Die-Cast parts in it to counteract the weight of the fin funnels. Bandai can opt to do it again this time around, but i do believe their engineering has come to the point where they can pull it off without die-cast

      Delete
  12. Great... and I just bought the resin conversion the MG Nu Gundam to turn it into the evolve version. I know this is a whole different beast, but I still can't shake that "you have been trolled" feeling T_T Anyways, this is still very welcome!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh snapppppp this made my day more cheery for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  14. What if... it's just a different set of decals than the old one

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. has there been a ver. ka kit that was just a new decal set?

      Delete
    2. Can't you see the illustration? Its clearly different from the old MG. As far as I remember, none of Bandai's promo illustrations differ from the actual product in terms of detail.

      Delete
  15. Hopefully this is a brand new mould.

    No more Ball-jointed waist please!

    I acutally jsut bought the old Nu a few weeks ago.

    It's rreally odd, like a hybrid of moderna nd old Gunpla design philosophies. The waist down has a ton of parts and is really cool. Asider form the ball joints at the hips, you'd think it was from a modern MG. The Arms as well have a good amount of pieces.

    However, the upper torso and head are PATHETIC. Seriously, I bet some HGs have more parts for their torso/head than the Nu! The upper torso and head by themaelves, You'd be justified in thinking they came form a 1/100 NG.

    ReplyDelete
  16. hohoho! this is just so awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm more curious with the additional payment more than regular MG... $40-50 more for this kit?

    It better be worth it because I can't imagine what kind of special features will they include in this kit aside from the size since Nu is the biggest MG that I have so far...

    Basing from the old design, I speculate that the funnels might give us an updated version. Of course, it has to be different from Hi-Nu... Hoped that it'll be like double fin funnel!!!

    :D

    1. the nu is your biggest MG? try MG perfect zeong...

  18. i bet it will have some real grade style panel lining and design.also maybe a improved innerframe

  19. Can't fucking wait for this. too orgasmic

  20. and here i was contemplating on quitting since i lost my MG blitz gundam's shoulder piece. seems bandai keep pulling me back in

    ReplyDelete
  21. ver. Katoki eh... well I can't say anything against the Katoki designs but based on experience... Katoki kits have terrible inner frames :|

    though i am hopeful i wouldn't get disappointed on this one's inner frame

    3. SI-NAN-JU almost a PG... in terms of inner frame.

  22. Hope this has effect parts for it's funnels similar to MG hi-Nu or the robot damashii fin funnel effect parts. xD

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have waited a long, long time for this. Thank you Bandai. Now if you would only release action figures (figuarts I suppose) of classic gundam pilots, I would not ask for more.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hopefully it will be taller than the sinanju without the funnels to keep it accurate.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hmmm pretty awesome ...
    Though I am a bit disappointed that it wasn't the Hi-V(Which I guess doesn't really need a redesigned MG, but would've been nice"
    I really hope they fix the old MG's giant head ... and a way to shoot off the funnels would be nice

    1. Hi-Nu are ... actually... hhmmm... i mean... ahh... A EPIC PIECE OF SHIIIIITTTTT!!! Really pricy for crappy efect parts and awful-horrible-terrible poor quality joints (WAIST-SHOULDERS) and don't forget ther "redesign"...

      MG RX-93-2 deserves a 2.0 revision. REALLY.

      Delete
  26. I hope it is pricey because they will add HWS conversion parts with it! Anyway, it was about time they did this!

    1. MG Nu 1.0 is like 5000 yen, with diecast part. that can be a possibilities for HWS, at such price point. dunno tho

  30. Hopefully we'll get Sazabi ver.Ka if this sells well. BUT I want a CCA Grunt suit in MG too. ;w;

    ReplyDelete
  31. really excited about this news !! hopefully bandai will revise the proportion of Nu.. (that giant head -_-). a little bit curious bout what will the 7350 price tag brings to this kit..

    ReplyDelete
  32. i can't believe it's already been 25 years since Amuro "died" (still remember going to the theatre to watch the movie). i think this is probably bandai's way of celebrating the 25th anniversary of Amuro's final battle.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I know. I remember watching CCA in theatre in Hong Kong. Much like The Transformers The Movie killing off Optimus Prime. Things have never been the same. "Char" is back as "Full Frontal" but they can't bring back Amuro other than a showing a picture of him in Bright Noah's office as a fan service. Think of the fan reaction if during Bright’s video call with Beltorchika, there’s a “Amuro look-alike” person in the back ground. Personally, I’d love to see Sayla showing up in later UC episode, though very unlikely.

      Delete
  33. This probably means we will eventually get a ver. Ka of Hi-Nu......in the next 25 years lol. I would be a middle aged man by then. But my Gunpla skills would have skyrocketed too haha.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Reading through all of these comments, almost everyone brings a good point. I think with this news of this brand new Master Grade Nu Gundam ver. Ka. , so early, and far from the release date, that we'll be getting a brand new model kit. Look back to last year with the December MG, it was just another Unicorn Gundam with new weapons, and we got news on it only a month or 2 before it was released. It's August now, so that makes me think that Bandai is designing new(Nu) everything. From the inner frame to base it off with acurate proportions, new armor of course to fit it beacause its a different design, and redesigned weapons/accessories. The big question would be whether or not if this kit will classify as a "2.0", or not. The best way to tell is when we see the actually prototype, by looking at the hands, if they are those super articulated ones previously seen on many "2.0's" , then maybe it will be, but if it has the "swop-out fingers" , it might be that its a ver. Ka. That really doesn't decide its version though. A new frame could be used for both the ver. Ka release and maybe a later release as a 2.0 model kit. I know this was long but i just wanted to get my thoughts and opinion out there to maybe help a little.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's not a 2.0, it's a ver ka. they are not the same thing. Case in point, rx-78 ver ka is not the same as rx-78 2.0 and was released much earlier. Also, 2.0s are revisions to older kits that try to make them as anime accurate as possible, while also updating the older version. This is not anime accurate. It's just katoki's take on the Nu gundam. Lastly, it says ver. Ka in the name...
      Also, hands mean nothing in ver Ka or 2.0 kits. Sazabi is a ver Ka and has 2.0 hands. Wing ver Ka has no swapable hands. And mk II 2.0 has the normal hands you'll find on, say, Infinite Justice.
      This is no 2.0, but is proly the closest we'll get to a real 2.0 Nu gundam in a looooong time

      Delete
  35. Anyone recall seeing this picture by the 1:1 Gundam while they were testing the large screen? This Nu was accompanied by Sazabi.

    As someone else has pointed out, the release of Nu and possibly Sazabi is most likely for celebrating CCA's 25 year anniversary.

    I will definitely be picking this up!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hey, know you mention it, yeah, I remember those pics! Sazabi looked FABULOUS! Here's hoping you're right!

      Delete
  36. Wouldn't be surprised if Sunrise/Bandai throws in a CCA cameo for the last 2 episodes of Gundam UC with ver. Ka versions of Nu and Sazabi. My big question: what if Nu ver. Ka becomes the OFFICIAL interpretation of Nu Gundam in future media installments (game, OVA, anime, etc)?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Now That's the BEST fuckin' DETAIL I've Ever Seen

    EXCELSIOR

    ReplyDelete
  38. Judging from the design, this looks like a new frame. I think (and considering Bandai's habit of milking good ideas) that in the near future that this could be released as a Version 2.0 with some minor changes.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Come on people. The original RX-93 nu Gundam was a 1987/88 design. Sure the existing MG kit looks more screen-accurate, but that doesn't mean it can't be updated/improved/refined for 2012. Even if you look at close-up MS illustrations from the 80’s, you can see many panels and “warning labels” Don’t jump the gun based on one picture. I think the whole upper body has a lot of Formania details and the price isn’t too outrageous

    I know this MG Ver. Ka nu isn’t necessary, but it’s still a nice offer. Although I’d be rather more excited about Ver Ka Sazabi (with Formania details).

    ReplyDelete
  40. OOOH YEEAAH! I'm so fired up! To be honest, I think it looks better than the original master grade. I think I might buy it

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Totally agree. Ka has brought the design to a more contemporary look but still keeping the classic touches all in place.

      Delete
  41. What I hope what the release of MG Nu Ver.Ka is leading to is Sazabi, Hi-Nu, and Nightingale ver. Ka kits. If Izubuchi does not want to redesign Nightingale like he did Hi-Nu for the Master Grade release (or Bandai does not want to use him for a redesign) Katoki can either make Nightingale more streamlined and smaller in scale or make it so badass that Bandai would be so convinced to at least release it in HG form.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Personally I never like Nightingale's design. It's too much of a monster to suit Char's style.

      And if a MG kit is made for Nightingale it will likely cost even more than MG The-O. Articulation will be very nearly non existent as well.

      Delete
    2. Katoki does not redesign kits like that, if he make a smaller nightingale, he would be altering it to much, besides katoki redesign kits by making them that they work and function like their original counter parts, but with another interpretation on the aesthetic design. They (if some they bandai decides and I don't see it coming soon) release MG nightingale they should be doing the original version, If they could make MG perfect zeong and MG the o, they could do nightingale (its even smaller than the o but much wider)with decent articulation, but of course in terms that weight issues are not a big problem, since with the design of the nightingale is almost impossible to escape weight issues

  42. this is what i wished for so long, NU 2.0

  43. i wonder if it still has metal parts?

  46. I really need this one!!! hell no to normal MG...

  47. RG Nu Gundam, is that you?

    ReplyDelete
  48. exterior doesn't look different from previous nu
    I think I'll pass, not interested in this one, and quite pricey too.

    but if they have something special with inner frame, perhaps I'll reconsider again.

    ReplyDelete
  49. How accurate are Katoki's CG art compared to the actual, physical model? Since if the images so far indicate what the MG Nu ver. Ka will look like, I will be VERY excited.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just hope that considering the price, the overall articulation of this kit would be better than the first Nu Gundam MG. *cross fingers*

    Will definitely save up for this if ever...

    ReplyDelete
  51. da*n it.. another trolling item.. XD

    ReplyDelete
  52. Dat CG art! So darn smexy. Screams [RG] all over the place. <3

  53. im happy for this release but this better not be the big dec release

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. How can it not be? Isn't Nu ver. Ka aka Nu 2.0 epic enough to be the December release? Sans a Sazabi ver. Ka or Nightingale release, this is the most anticipated kit this year besides RG Zeta.

      Delete
  54. and after a few months they will release a HWS of that kit i will going to get that!!!!
