I have to change the 'MB' to 'MG' on the Hi-Nu sentence since you made it sound like you already have the 'TBA' MB Hi-Nu already. ;) 

 

Well I have issues with the sculpt of the Metal Build Hi-Nu (especially the lower legs) from the pictures we have seen for the last Tamashii Nations event

I agree. It doesn't look like the traditional Hi-Nu legs. But I'm guessing the MB legs will just hold fine than its model kits counterpart.  :good:

I know that metal build takes a lot of stylish liberties with the designs but dayam that Hi-Nu looks blegh. did they get the proportions wrong or are we too used to katoki's hi-nu :0

 

nah, the Hi-Nu had the super thick legs before Katoki got to it.  Also, the original, pre-Katoki design had the polka-dot shield.

Yeah, but it's canon though.

Based on what?  A single black-and-white illustration from back in the day?

I question its canonicity. :huh:

The legs of the MB Hi Nu does look off to me too. The shape is fine, great even, but the lower half definitely needed to be enlarged eg. a lil bit longer and girthier. Cause the arms and head/torse look exceptionally long and large respectively. The shield could be mounted abit higher too.

The providence also look REALLY off.  

but what the heck...im hoping to get both anyway 😂

I’m fairly certain that the inevitable HWS will come with a white shield so not to scratch the precious polka dots when attaching the HWS „thing“ to it.

I’m glad not many people are interested in the Hi-Nu. Will make it easier to order for me. 😛

It is going to be hilarious if the Hi-Nu is the easiest Metal Build to pre-order because no one likes the shield.

What are the chances that Bandai is going to make this thru their Chogokin line like the RX-78F00? I know I don't like that Long Range Fin Funnel, but if this is the only way of having a Chogokin/Metal Build-esque Nu-Gundam, would you guys get it too sans the rainbow-colored Amuro insignia and bluer blue/grey parts from the original scheme?

Im actually thinking of selling off all my metal builds.

if anyone needs an MB let me know! I might have it. 

You're thinning the herd now? I'm going to do the same on some figures once I'm not too busy juggling between stuff. :rolleyes:
