It's a common word for gunpla fans but is unknown to others. So don't be shy if your not familiar with it. Ver. Ka is short for "Version Katoki". It is a notation used by Bandai to denote specialty models produced by Hajime Katoki.

Hajime Katoki is a popular Japanese mecha designer. A member of the studio Sunrise, he is highly recognized for his work on the Gundam series. The Ver. Ka tag first appeared as a sub-branch of the Master Grade line. Aside from having the Ver. Ka tagline below the MG logo, this models were featured on a characteristic white box.
