1/100 GN-008 Gundam Seravee English Color Guide

Bandai 1/100 GN-008 Gundam Seravee English Translation of Color Guide

Tieria Erde's GN-008 Gundam Seravee from Gundam 00 Second Season that replaced the Gundam Virtue. Like the Gundam Virtue the Seravee also plays host to a second Gundam, the GN-009 Gundam Seraphim. Unlike the Gundam Nadleeh however, the Gundam Serpahim is not encased within the armor of the Seravee, rather it is a separate Gundam altogether that rides piggy back facing the opposite direction.

Like its predecessor, the Seravee is the heavy weapon specialist of the 4 Gundams that Celestial Being employs. Because of its bulk and girth the Seravee is always depicted to be the slowest of the 4, but it makes up for this with the firepower it employs and a GN Shield that it uses to protect itself from enemy fire.

Color Guide for the Gundam Seravee was translated from the manual posted at Hobby Search. Here's the color guide for the Regular 1/100 Gundam Seravee

The Gundam Seravee is also slightly more expensive than the regular 1/100 non-grade kit of Gundam 00 models made by Bandai, most likely because of the amount of plastic needed to make it what with the armor and Seraphim tucked within its inner frame. The Gundam Seravee Designer's ver costs 3990 yen at Hobby Search, while the regular version costs 3420 yen. The regular version costs 2520 yen at HWJapan while the Designer's color version costs 2940 yen. Over at Amiami it costs 3080 yen for the designer's color ver while the regular one costs 2637 yen. At Hobby Link Japan it costs 4200 yen for the designers color ver and 3600 yen for the regular variant.
