A custom RX-93 Nu Gundam model recently sold for ¥926,001 (roughly $10,000) and has amazed not only Gundam fans, but regular netizens as well. This beautiful model, which apparently took 10 months to complete, started at merely ¥100 before racking up 311 bids and reaching the ¥926,001 final price.
As a Gundam fan and former model builder, I am in absolute awe of this masterpiece. This is a work of art, plain and simple. The timing of this auction is also somewhat peculiar, with an anime about Gundam model (gunpla) building currently airing (Gundam Build Fighters). An OVA about Gundam models (Model Suit Gunpla Builders Beginning G) was also released back in 2010 to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of Gundam. Check out our review of it here. In the meantime, you can see more incredible pics of the custom Nu Gundam below.
