MG RX-93 Nu Gundam Ver Ka English Manual & Color Guide

MG Nu Gundam Ver Ka English Translation Construction Manual & Color Guide

The much anticipated Hajime Katoki's version of the Nu Gundam was released this December by Bandai as a 1/100 Master Grade model kit. It differs greatly from the original Master Grade RX-93 Nu Gundam released by Bandai, obviously because its a Ver. Ka special. Notable features of it is that it incorporates a hidden green pycho frame in its inner frame and its fin funnels can be configured in an optional double fin funnel mode. There is also an option to install the separately sold Gundam LED lights in its torso to light up the Nu Gundam. In my book, Bandai really gave the fans what they wanted with this release.

The 1/100 Master Grade Nu Gundam Ver Ka is selling for $ at Amazon, 5600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 5950 yen at Hobby Search
