RX-93 Nu Gundam Double Fin Funnel Type joins Tamashii Nations’s METAL ROBOT Spirits line of high end mecha action figures. “METAL ROBOT Spirits” combines the elements of the name brand figure lines of ROBOT SPIRITS with the “Chogokin” series to feature die-cast metal parts and joints.
Designed by mechanical designer Hitoshi Fukuchi, the RX-93 Nu Gundam Double Fin Funnel Type, as the name implies, is a version of the iconic RX-93 Nu Gundam equipped with a second set of Fin Funnels. The Nu Gundam Double Fin Funnel Type was featured in the 1988 Char’s Counterattack Mobile Suit Variations design series.
Originally designed by Yutaka Izubuchi, the RX-93 Nu Gundam was famously piloted by Earth Federation ace pilot Amuro Ray in the 1988 Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack film.
Set fourteen years after the One Year War in U.C. 0093, Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack serves as the final confrontation between legendary rivals Amuro Ray and Char Aznable. Char has risen to power as leader of Neo Zeon and plans an all-out assault to decimate the Earth’s population to revive the planet. Released to theaters in 1988, Char’s Counterattack grossed 1.16 billion yen at the box office.
