MC Hi-Nu Gundoom

YEAH!!!.. since everyone getting one.. i don't want to miss one too.. haha.. since the seller told me it is limited edition with wing effect.. i do get a lot of information before getting it.. like the scale which is slightly bigger than 1/144 version but it still stated the scale is 1/144.. i haven't build it yet but i can tell something about the structure from other review now.. i mean in briefly.. most of the part are not molded separately.. even though the details are great but the structure seems more simple than the original Bandai HGUC Nu or Hi-Nu.. the size is bigger with more detail but less complicated.. erm.. how will you judge it?.. for me.. i would say the reason fall on the price tag.. if i want to get a conversion kit that as detail as this with complicated awesome inner structure.. the price might at RM 200+ for a 1/144 kit..  

the boxart here is fine.. but not the rocket/bazooka launcher.. not sure why..

the box come with two sided boxart.. is this from China too?.. i think they are smarter in terms of copyright now.. rather than giving what Bandai give us.. they give us more.. but still.. there are something missing.. such as the molding method for the parts.. like i said.. if it come out with more detail and complicated structure.. it "might" beat Bandai.. but there is one problem with this kit which also the backfire of its specialty.. the details on this kit.. with the amount of details offered from this kit.. there are nothing much left for modification.. some of you might think it do not need to.. but not for some modeler.. 

i was wondering where is this "MC" manufacturer from?.. and the detail of this manufacturer.. but i do hope it release more kit in this type.. and better quality of plastic.. but i'm not too sure about the plastic of this kit yet.. let see what i can i review more soon after my exam.. 

thats all for this month.. and this is the surprise i'm talking about.. never thought i will get "bootleg" kit again.. but this is not a ordinary bootleg but might be the threat for third party gunpla modifier like G-system or vp-model.. haha

Everyone is getting this... I'm gonna have to jump on Ebay later on.

Tsukinari said...

Nice Get~... Everyone is getting this Gundoom XD

chrismandesign said...

for the box, i agree that this couldn’t b considered as a bootleg, un-official is pretty fine, like the fan projects, that in some cases have the same or even better quality than the licenced products =)

seven6398 said...

Tom: you may follow the link i provide there..

tsukinari: thx.. are you getting it too.. the seller is from Perak..

Chris: not sure about the quality yet but it still better than those TT Hong Li, Bendai or gaugau.. haha..

it is non scale I think,, but this design from MC model is more awesome for me

Q said...

lol you managed to get yourself one at the end.

The Gundoom does attract a lot of attention for being different and has a lot of 'original stuff', even though I have heard that it is actually based on a conversion kit. The concept of bootleg is now getting a little stretched into the grey area by this model. I'm not for or against this, but "un-official" is a nice way to describe it I suppose ^^;

Looking forward to see you building it with verdict!

RIP666: if follow the normal standard scale from Bandai.. it should be non-scale but MC stated it is 1/144.. so the actual one might be bigger so that it wont collide with those licence stuff with Bandai.. i think.. haha..

Q: haha.. sure.. June.. might be the month for it to rise here.. now we are waiting for Z to review it.. with his photo style.. it should be sufficient to show the articulation of this kit and how dynamic can it pose in the photo..

counting on you.. Z..

Seems this kit is very popular. As you say, it's not in 1/144 scale, but something around the 1/110 more or less. Nevertheless, it's basically a bigger HGUC, with plenty of details molded in the plastic, giving it vibes of a MG plamo.
It's a pretty good kit.
