The Nu-Zeon Gundam is a bit of a beast. It’s got a really hefty box for an HG — I forgot to take a photo, so you’ll just have to trust me on this one. It’s easy to see why, anyway: it’s got hulking weapon and wing parts!
There’s an unusually lot of red going on in this desgin — and some pretty cool antennae and accessories. Let’s dive in.
Here we see the Nu-Zeon in all its glory holding the Zeonic Sword. You’ll notice that the tip of the sword rests in a base; that’s how massive it is. Kudos to Bandai for including that base — it will probably go a long way in helping the kit stay balanced when on display.
More configuration options, including the massive Hi Mega Saber. I love this one — wait until you see the effect part in the box!
On the right, you can see an even greater option for customization: pick up the Marsfour Weapons, and you can arm this super-armed Gundam a little more.
Here’s the front and rear shots of the completed kit in a standard pose, along with some background information on the Gundam.

…and a ton of polycats, the clear yellow effect part, and just a few stickers.
The effect part is long. Check it out compared to the box:
…and that’s without the hilt!
