MG RX-93 Nu Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai Master Grade Amuro Ray's RX-93 Nu Gundam English Translation of Color Guide

Amuro Ray's RX-93 Nu Gundam from the anime series Char's Counter Attack. Definitely a very peculiar design for me because the fin funnels are placed off center from the back shoulder. It kinda breaks a paradigm for the need always for symmetric design in order to equate a sense of balance. I still prefer the design of Amuro Ray's RX-93 v2 Hi Nu Gundam over this.

I read before (not sure if it was Time magazine) that in a survey conducted that had people judging whether a person was beautiful or not, those that were most often judged beautiful were said to have very symmetric features. By symmetric it meant that from the centerline of the nose the distance between the face features (eyes, ears, cheeks, etc) were always equal in length to the centerline. Talk about going off tangent again from the theme of this post, hehehe.

The RX-93 Nu Gundam is also a memorable mobile suit, because along with the Char Aznable's Sazabi, were the mobile suits used in the epic duel at the end of Char's Counter Attack that had both men drifting out in space with their fate unknown.
