Mine just came in from entertainment earth. Figure is so stiff but in a good way. The metal builds are definitely stepping up the game

Wow you’re right man. Makes me wonder if the blue fin order might come before the My amiami order on the EVA-02

Looks like they have made some significant improvements to the range of motion of the figure.

The rifle and shield seem too small to me. Anyone else here feel that way?

The hands are better, but the elbows look terrible. 90degree max bend and no double-joint is going to severely impare the ability to pose.

When are they going to release the funnels, and I hope they stay on?

Have we even seen the funnels mounted to the Nu? I feel like they're not worth the absurd asking price if you can't even attach them to the figure itself...

Feel like they've really milked 00 for metal build. I hope it's at least something other than a Sestuna suit derivative (feel like they've basically done all of them at this point too). 

As for GFFMC, I hope they stick with UC suits. Feel like the GP-01 or RX-79[G] has been begging for one.

Agreed!

I’d especially love to have a GFFMC Gerbera Tetra or Zephryantes (sp)

It says there that the GFFMC has been teased in magazines, it’s the Snow White

The GFFMC is probably the snow white Wing that was teased in magazines recently.

Same here. More love needed for U.C. Metal Builds. Any Gundam from 0083 up to Unicorn would be much appreciated.

I'm okay with more 00 metal builds but only if it's the rest of celestial being or enemy suits. Reborn Gundam would be a nice pair to the 00 raiser after all of these years.....and I've been clamoring for a dynames for years now. And this is why I support 3rd party options since Bandai may never make the dream happen.

I'll take any lockon suit in MB. I'm looking forward to seeing the full Snow White mostly though.

Forgive me, I know next to nothing about Gundam. I'm half way through Gundam UC right now and that is the extent of my knowledge. And I mostly collect toys for aesthetic reasons so "history" isn't much of a factor for me. That said, that's the Unicorn correct? What am I looking at? Is that a soon to be new release? It looks massive. How big is that thing (I'm a big toy fan)? Bandai? I think I see another in the background with the shield? Same toy different display? I think I need something like that in my collection! Thanks!

Ah yes..... now boarding the bandai metal structure hypetrain!

This is the gundam used by amuro, in the apex of amuro's and char's rivalry, in the OVA gundam char's counter attack.

Holds a very special place in my heart,when anime was hitting its strides in the 80's.

It is the RX-93 Nu Gundam from Char's Counterattack, the theatrical movie released in 1988, which, at the time wrapped up plot lines from Original Gundam (1979), Zeta Gundam (1985) and ZZ Gundam (1986).  It was meant to be the "ultimate" Gundam, but with recons, it was eventually superseded by Mobile Suit such as the Unicorn.

What you are looking at is the first product in a new line called Metal Structure which is essentially a 1/60 scale "Perfect Grade" model kit made into a fully completed and painted figure.  The "toy" went on sale at the end of August and sold out faster than most Valkyries considering this thing costs over 100,000 yen (not a typo).

Well, we haven't seen his Union Flag & ELS suits. ;)

To be honest, I don't mind closing my MB Setsuna's suits with his ELS unit. I don't mind too if some 3P company will do it. As long that it looks nice and tight. ^_^

Thanks for the detailed reply.

That...............................thing............................is......................................AWESOME!

I'd pay $1000 for that I suppose. I wonder how much they will go for in the secondary market. I guess time will tell. I'll have tom keep my eyes peeled for info on when it ships in here.

Thanks again!

if you'll base it on current "Pre-order" scalping price, it's currently at least $1500 with some postings reaching $2000.
