RG Nu Gundam Fin Funnel Effect Set Unboxing

1/144 RG Nu Gundam Fin Funnel Effect Set

The RG Nu Gundam Fin Funnel Effect Set is finally here, a change of pace in the steady stream of HGBD:R kits that we’ve been seeing. This kit is a limited edition, meaning it’s possible that once current supply is gone, Bandai might not produce any more.

There’s one more precursor we should mention: this kit does include parts to build the Nu Gundam itself, in case there was any confusion. (Our website doesn’t specify, but we were working with equally vague pre-release information…)

The Box

Of course, the box focuses on what everyone buying this kit is buying it for: the plethora of effect parts. You can see them here in use in two configurations, as well as laid out in the most aesthetically-pleasing way you can lay out effect parts.

The other side of the box gets into the details of the kit. We’ve seen these details before on the first release of the RG Nu Gundam, so there’s not much new to see here — except for another cool action pose with the effect parts!

  1. Those effect parts look pretty.

  2. Really appreciate that this kit comes with loads of hands, way nicer than those tiny moving hands that are delicate for RGs. The effect parts as well the rest of the transparent pieces on this kit look amazing. Wonder how all of this would look like under a black light.

  3. Hoping to see this effects set be sold seperately.

  4. Do you know if the fin funnels will fit in the back of the gundam for the double fin funnel look?
