    1. i think hi nu looked pretty good but that huge stabilizer on the ver ka's back looks weird. plus the funnels look more like a cape than a pair of wings.

  2. I've never posted here, never cared too.

    But all of these releases are like a Gundam fans wet dream.... All I need left is a MG Kyshatria ....

  9. In tears* thank you Bandai!

    ReplyDelete
  10. AMEN! Cause in my opinion Bandai never released a MG Hi-Nu Gundam. I completely ignored that filth they released several years back. Such a horrible design they went with before.

    ReplyDelete
  11. OK. I like Ver Ka releases, truly, just that I REALLY hope this design keeps the funnel binders similar to the original lineart design. They really screwed it up with the first MG Hi-nu release (among other things with that kit!) and a lot of 3rd party releases liked to tinker with the design of those funnel binders. Keeping my fingers crossed this release will have the dynamic proportions of the original lineart but with the touch of hajime katoki :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Don't we already have a decent quality MG Hi-Nu that was released like 5-6 years ago? Unless they're going for the original bulky MSV design, I don't see the point.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You see, that old MG Hi-Nu Gundam was a color variant and retooled of the very first MG Nu Gundam release back in 2000. Even if it was decent, It missed out on 14 years worth of advanced technology put into gunpla and with the release of the Nu Gundam Ver. Ka 2 years ago, I think the Hi-Nu Gundam deserves a Ver. Ka upgrade as well.

      Delete
    2. Well... actually the "original MSV design" is the original novel concept. The old MG Hi-Nu are a redesign from the "original bulky MSV design". A shitty restyling.

      And that old MG have a lot of bad notes. The weak arms/legs, really poor quality ABS joints, the hideous waist unit, the terrible funnel binders,... and that horrible horrible fuel tanks.

      Yep. That is. And don't forget the chinise botlegs. and sorry 4 my poor grammar.

      See ya!

      What are you smoking? MG Hi-Nu had almost nothing in common with the old MG Nu, it sure as hell wasn't a color variation like you're implying. The only thing remotely similar about them were the funnels, but that's it. Different inner frame, different weapons, different armor pieces, better engineering, etc.

      FYI, MG Hi-Nu was a very good kit when it was released, but it pissed some people off because the proportions looked absolutely nothing like the original lineart. That's why I'm glad to see a Hi-Nu Ver Ka that's closer to the original design.

      Delete
    4. I did say it was retooled, not just a color variation. Read. Carefully. Oh and like what @Anon9:12 said, the old MG Hi-Nu had problems and the most common problem was that FLOOPY left arm whenever the shield is attached. It is annoying as hell whenever you do some poses with the shield attached.

      Delete
    5. Either way, this new Hi-Nu Gundam Ver. Ka crushes and renders the original Hi-Nu obsolete. The old MG Hi-Nu is now unbearable to look or admire at all thanks to its Ver. Ka upgrade.

      Delete
    6. @Kenny Bridges
      Call it retooled, a color variation, or whatever you want to, it's still completely false. The engineering was similar to Seed MGs of that time, and it was in no way a "retooled" MG Nu. So that "It missed out on 14 years worth of advanced technology" line is utter BS.

      Delete
    7. @Kenny Bridges
      And I just noticed your comment below saying don't even own a MG Hi-Nu. Haha wow, what a waste of my time. Did you at least build the MG Nu? Actually nevermind, no point in continuing this conversation.

    If we get PG Unicorn I'll definitely buy it!

  15. more like hi-nu evo botleg

    ReplyDelete
  16. YESSSSSS! FINALLY WE CAN FINALLY UPDATE OUR OLD Hi-Nu with this!

    But we don't know if this is gonna be ver 2.0 or Ver.Ka... C'mon Bandai, be precise!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm actually not all that impressed. Unless it's got some kind of cool transforming gimmick like the Nu Ver Ka, I don't really see that much incentive to put my old MG out to pasture for this.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Assuming that Bandai only released this as a way to reuse the frame of the Nu Ver Ka and make more money, it will more than likely have the same (or a similar) transformation feature like the Nu Ver Ka.

      Delete
    2. Your "look alike" (crap)Hi-Nu ??

      Delete
    3. that old MG sucks in terms of proportions
      this thing however, is ....masani PERFECT!

      Delete
    4. Look carefully at torso unit, knees, shoulders and front skirts. There are some gaps. Maybe there is a phycho frame gimmick. It Would not be a surprise. But the fences on the chest are at different postion and elbows are different. this is not a frame reuse, at least not all of it is reused.

  18. BTW: THIS IS NO GUNDAM BOY, NO GUNDAM!

  20. I gotta say this Hi-Nu looks heavily influenced by 3rd party resin kits such as those by VisualPollution:
    http://www.visualpollution201.com/gallery01/gallery_2010_01.htm
    and Anaheim Factory:
    http://www.anaheimfactory.com/products/hero/rx-932_verka/932ka.htm
    though nowhere near as detailed...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Its based on the original lineart. Resin kits dont have detail, they just have a shitload of panel lines. Thats not detail.

      Delete
  21. Its appearance is not so much "ver.ka "as original illustration.

    ReplyDelete
  22. hope that this is not the final product. the body seems to bulky, the proportion is not good enough for a ver. ka.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Bandai wants to kill that chinise botlegs and the garage kits makers??? MAYBE.

      Delete
    2. @alvin lioes though I agree with the proportions not having a "ver ka" feel. The proportions are damn perfect and accurate from the original art
      this thing has 100x better proportion and bulkiness than the old MG.

      Delete
    3. "the proportion is not good enough for a ver. ka"
      Thats a dumb statement. Since its a Ver.Ka then that means Katoki is directly overseeing its development and he obviously chose all the design aspects including proportion.
      He is trying to re-create the original Hi-Nu design, the other MG was a bastard design.

      Delete
    4. Anyway this is not the final version, we can see the grain of the paint covering the prototype plastic. Just wait for the final product.

  30. Whew! So glad I didn't bought the recent RD Hi-Nu. I don't usually collect MG but this is a MUST have for me!

    Now the waiting game begins. :D

  31. IMHO this is pretty similar to the robot damashii version of the hi-nu. isnt it a bit bulky ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually, Hi-Nu is very bulky in its original lineart. Much more bulky than the Nu.

    2. yeah i've seen the lineart, looks funny imho, short and bulky. well anyway i probably get this one as i've been hesitating to get the old hi-nu.

  32. Is it just me or does this kit not have the ver.ka-esque design :S

    ReplyDelete
  33. the design and detail seems not finished yet. a few parts of the gunpla still looks fat and not proportional. it's not the characteristic in Ver.Ka line.. maybe this is just the earllier prototype for the expo. I hope the design&detail gonna awesome........ JUST TAKE MY MONEY THEN.... haha

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The Ver.Ka line has no set characteristics. Its whatever take on a design Katoki wants to do.
      He obviously felt that Hi-Nu needed to have a MG that was close to the original design.

      Delete
    2. It's just that Katoki didn't do what he normally does, with the long legs and very sleek design, and that's a good thing IMHO since this design is still faithful to Yutaka's original art.

      Delete
  34. actually i expected more of this. this does not compare to the latest ver.ka's like sinanju, stein, nu or sazabi. not at all.

    sigh, sorry guys i don't usually like to whine. but, all the hype announcement. first the "new grade" nightingale, and now this. all of them trampled on my expectations. the pg unicorn is yet to be shown, but i won't buy it anyway so what do i care

    ReplyDelete
  35. it's proportion just like robot damashii hi-nu

    ReplyDelete
  36. Holy shit this is more like a ver. Iz
    still, good job Katoki, we needed an accurate Hi Nu.

    ReplyDelete
  37. How if "un-Katoki' detail is meant for balancing it with 1/100 Nightingale so it'll not outstand nightingale if you want to display them together? It can be different if both Hi-Nu and Nightingale released on same line, like Nu and Sazabi IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I wonder if effects are included like the first MG

    By the way... Hi Nu Gundoom is very good in design, newly added weapons (they can be combined), and those monster wings of light gimmick.

    I don't know if this ver KA will beat it but currently my best choice of Hi Nu is the Gundoom. We'll see. I have high hopes for this ver KA since it may be my very 1st MG

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Wing of light is stupid for a Hi-Nu since its not meant to have it. But the chinese like adding pointless gimmicks for the cheap idiots that love those shit quality knockoffs

      Delete
    2. yep, IMHO adding non-canon weapons is retarded, specially the wings of light, y'all seedfags probably have fallen for that.

      this design is 100 times better than that gundoom since this is pretty damn accurate to Yutaka Izubuchi's original design.

      and as cool as it may look, that gundoom's soul cleaver doesnt suit hi-nu. those kind of weapons suit non-UC mechs best.

      Delete
    3. those 2 replies above me cannot be a student of Chinan... they lack imagination :P

      Delete
    4. @anon 7:31
      really? imagination? what the fck is this? Build Fighters?, Why would anyone, specially bandai, include non-canon accessories, (Wings of light, soul cleaver) to their MG modelkit, you do realize that, that will make fanboys lose their boners.

      talking about non-canon, Hi-Nu itself is technically non-canon since the Nu Gundam, in the movie is considered canon. blah blah, who cares, seed abused wings of light and made it lose its coolnes, V2 is the only acceptable MS with WOL

      and remember, noone cares what you think, but Hi-Nu is NOT meant to have wings of light. Damn chinese bootlegs adding overused mainstream gimmicks.

  46. Well now we have to original lineart for the Hi-Nu in MG format now it seems...

    Impressive!

    I don't particularly hate the first MG Hi-Nu (unlike some of the purists here) since it looks a hell lot sleeker and up to date compared to original design, but it's making me reconsider what should I be putting up on my shelf now.. If this kit has some sick gimmicks with it then it could definitely give the 1st MG Hi-Nu a run for its money on my shelf.. XD

  47. For all the damn fools out there saying "ooo this isn't katoki" "ooo this is too bulky": THIS IS HOW IT WAS MEANT TO BE

  48. I'm not sure why, but this seems less mindblowing than the Nu, Sinanju, or Sazabi ver. ka. Can't put my finger on it. It looks... simpler? Box-like? The funnels aren't the right color, boring plain white instead of the striped funnels the Hi-Nu really has. Not sure why it seems less impressive.

    Regardless, any gunpla collector will get this anyway including me. I mean, it's the fucking Hi-Nu Gundam for fucks sake.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. "The funnels aren't the right color, boring plain white instead of the striped funnels the Hi-Nu really has."

      Nope, the color is right. Stripped fin funnel's color on original lineart more like applied gradation painting than parts-per-parts color section. Just look at this:
      http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130207174216/gundam/images/8/8e/Rx-93-v-2.jpg

      you can see the blended area on fin funnel's purple, but not on overall body armor. Why? Because unlike fin funnel, Hi-Nu,s has body armor with separated color from beginning.

      As for why you feel less impressive, the answer is simple. This have less detail than previous Ver. Ka like Nu, Sazabi and Sinanju. But I think it's more because Katoki decide not use same treatment as Nu and Sazabi. When most of Nu and Sazabi's kit is still stick to it's original design, Hi-Nu only have retooled, sleeker version. Now he want to make this Hi-Nu more faithful with original lineart.

      Tl;dr, Nu and Sazabi Ver. Ka crazy detail overwhelmed Hi-Nu Ver. Ka and you dissapointed with it.

      Delete
  49. Uhm... This is still just a prototype, right? The proportion is quite bulky and less details than the old Hi-Nu. And also, why I didn't felt the excitement nor amazed on this announcement? Is it because they showed us the prototype first before the lineart?

    ReplyDelete
  50. It doesn't seem so detailed as the other recent MG ver ka kits. Hardly any color differences or panel lines that we love from the RG & updated MG line... but maybe it's just a prototype and I'm worrying for nothing I hope.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ugly!!! Fat!! They stick too close to the original concept design!!! If only it was a bit as thick as the nu gundam ver ka., Would have been perfect!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. No psychoframe? XD Joke aside, I already have the HG and RD version of the Hi-Nu. So far the RD is more faithful to the original design but lacks the third beam saber. This new one looks like its also trying to follow the original design. I can't put my finger on it but the proportions seem off for some reason and I don't see any indication of any gimmicks yet. As much as I like the Hi-Nu, it looks like the Nightingale will be occupying the top of my Must-Get-List for this year.

    ReplyDelete
  53. everyone is just being spoiled by the euhchineseeuhm Hi-Nu. Because it's all skinny and bright colours. Well I do agree that MG Hi-Nu Ver. Ka has less gimmick... I still think it's one of the better looking Hi-Nu out there. And to people who say it's fat... you obvious don't how Hi-Nu was intended to look like.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow... Much hate for the first"MG Hi-Nu... why? I think it has a good design and proportion. The original design I dont like because it is very bulky. It's a shame I dont like yet... I hope later call my attention

    3. Nu Gundam has a taller head height by 2m. Its always been the taller one.

    4. actually it was suppose to be smaller than Nu, cuz this is not a complete version of Nu , it was actually a novel version of the Nu gundam so the official height was 20m instead of Nu's 22m

  59. Just to those people thinking that the Hi-Nu ver.Ka will reuse the internal parts of the Nu ver.Ka kit:
    Hi-Nu is 13% shorter than Nu. You can't reuse parts unless the redesign includes a height change along with the proportion change.

    1. You obvious don't comprehend what Ver Ka means. Ver ka are suppose to be accurete too the line art. Oh and look closely at the Hi Nu. It's it's a painted 3d printer prototype.

      Delete
    2. Not really. Ver. Ka. means what Katoki wants to make and design, not suppose to be accurate to the lineart. Just look at PG SF, it's bit different from Okawara ver. As for Hi-Nu, he decided to make it to faithful as Izubuchi design, the original Hi-Nu designer.

      Delete
    3. I wonder whose the doofus here. Ver. Ka are suppose to be accurate to the line art? If you must know, Ver Ka means that it is design by Katoki Hajime nothing more nothing less..

      And Speaking about accuracy, if you look closely, the prototype has wider shoulder compare to the line art thus making it look less proportionate. So how can u say its accurate to the line art?

      Delete
    4. Yes I still calm it is more accurate too the lineart simply because most of the hi nu artwork that I seen has shoulders, legs and torso like the Kit shown. the hi nu was never proportion it. Another reason. Is yes katokl is heading the project so the end result (the Kit) it based of his lineart and design. So it's accurate too his work.

  62. P-Bandai Hyper Mega Bazooka Launcher, please! I'd pay a lot for that!

    ReplyDelete
  63. This is excellent that they want to pay homage to the original design. I have always wanted this in MG since the resin that I have is showing it's age and has no movement. But the design is old and this version is no where as awesome as the resin from the 90s. So I would have welcomed them taking the original design then tweaking it as they did with the old Nu design and tweaked it resulting to the awesome Nu Gundam ver. Ka. They could have simply updated the Nu's armor and other unique few parts such as the funnel holders, weapons, arms, feet, etc. but still use the Nu Gundam ver. Ka frame. Updating the proportions would have been great too and NOT using the crappy weapon design seen in the MG Hi Nu. I just see myself taking the Nu Gundam Ka and converting it to a Hi Nu and there has been a lot of awesome conversions. Anyway. this might be too soon to say since more gimmicks might yet to be revealed. But if the final version is exactly what we see now... this will definitely not stop people from buying the Chinese version.

    Side note... now that they have done this... I hope they release Nu's full armor version too!

    1. calm down,it's just a bloody 3d printed prototype. bandai (and katoki apparently) is hiding the secret on this one, the way they did with nu and sazabi ver ka. it will be awesome for sure just like Nu and Sazabi ver ka. speaking about full armor, they indeed give us the HWS for this, and yes, it's p-bandai as ususal http://gundamguy.blogspot.com/2014/05/p-bandai-online-hobby-shop-exclusive-mg_16.html

    ReplyDelete
  66. Ok, while this looks good, this shouldn't be under the ver. Ka line. Maybe ver. 2.0 or something. Yeah, I know it's close to the original design, but why under ver. Ka? I rather Katoki sticked to his usual style instead of the classic design just for the sake of matching aesthetics with the RE 1/100 Nightingale.

    ReplyDelete
  67. A "Ver Ka" is called as such because Katoki oversees both its design and production. While we have seen some common characteristics in its works, it's definitely not going to prevent him from doing things differently. While this kit has tried to be faithful to the original lineart, it still has several differences that make it stand on its own. What is more, it's still lacking the Katoki decals we've come to expect.

    I don't think Katoki made it this way to match the Nightingale. The RE/100 is a different Gunpla category and it's likely Katoki has no say whatsoever in the design of a different line.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Katoki and his famous "Ver.ka" emblem are famous for "changing the original design" of a mecha. He changed wing, wing gundam, nu, sazabi, the ball, crossbone, rx 78, etc. The unicorn was his design. This fat hi-nu, he did not design this nor did he change the original fat design, so why did they call it "ver.ka"? Some say he supervised its production. Duh?! Stupid answer. Heres what happened: "hey katoki, we will release a new hi-nu, but we will keep the original design and slap your logo in it! Is that ok?" Katoki:"Well... Your the boss.."

    1. FYI, Crossbones is his original design too, but because Hasegawa's drawing style it not looks like Katoki's design. As for Hi-Nu, the previous MG is redesign already that why he "reverse" it. I don't think bandai just slap Ver. Ka. emblem randomly without Katoki supervise it. So much unrevealed feature on this Hi-Nu, they will reveal it slowly as always.

  73. You know what, I take back what I said before. After seeing the new high-res images, this kit is actually looking pretty sexy. The design has grown on me.

  74. Looks too rough. Hand joint can't even hold up the gun. Left should can't hold up the weight of the arm and shield either. Hope it is only temp finish display.

  75. It might not be to the liking of those who love the original design of the Hi nu, but I personally would love it if it had some gimmicks like the Nu Ver. Ka where it could expose some parts of the psychoframes. Not necessarily needed, but just as an added bonus given that its Ver. Ka design.

    But its still a great design on its own anyways.

  76. By the looks of it, I think we are yet for another surprise. I'm still crossing my fingers that this one may have a Psycho Frame in it. Damn you, Katoki.

  78. There still hasn't been any reveal on it's extra gimmicks? Since it's almost close to its release already, I must say I'd expect to have at least a sneak preview of any sort of hidden gimmicks like the Nu Ver. Ka since Katoki usually adds extra goodies in his designs.

  79. All these people hating on Chubby Nu are pissing me off. It's faithful to original lineart so it's not greeble-infested liek the other Ka kits. It's supposed to be fat and plain.
