RX-94 Mass Production Type Nu Gundam 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.
(Ka Signature) is a sub line of ROBOT SPIRITS figures that have been designed under the supervision of renowned mechanical designer Hajime Katoki.
Designed by legendary mechanical designer Kunio Okawara, the RX-94 Mass Production Type Nu Gundam, as the name implies, was a planned mass produced version of the iconic RX-93 Nu Gundam. The high-end unit was being developed to counter Neo Zeon mobile suits such as the MSN-03 Jagd Doga. The RX-94 was featured in Okawara’s 1990 M-MSV (Kunio Okawara Collection) 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.
Tamashii Nations will release more details for the METAL ROBOT Spirits(Ka Signature) Mass-Production Type Nu Gundam next week on September 30.
