Deluxe Nu Gundam RX-93 Char’s Counterattack 1988 Bandai America

This is the big 12″ deluxe version of the Nu Gundam from Char’s Counterattack. This model was an upgrade over the Mark II (see the figure on the left – purchased in Japan 1985 – which was part of Z Gundam or Zeta Gundam) and featured fins on the back that could independently attack an enemy. I believe they could also form a shield around Gundam as well. This cartoon came out in 1988 I believe but we didn’t see this toy until much, much later as I bought this in a toy store in Portland (of all places) in 2003. I’m guessing since there was a Gundam craze in the early 2000’s (Gundam Wing, G Gundam were playing at the time in the States on Cartoon Network as Toonami), they just thought they could make some money by introducing anything Gundam related.
