1/100 GN-006 Gundam Cherudim English Manual & Color Guide

1/100 GN-006 Gundam Cherudim Construction Manual

After the GN-002 Gundam Dynames came the GN-006 Gundam Cherudim. This one was piloted by Lockon Stratos. As with the Dynames, the Cherudim acts as the long range weapons platform of Celestial Being. Its use however has differed slightly than with the original Dynames.

In Season 1 of Gundam 00, the Dynames would most often act in tandem with the GN-001 Gundam Exia of Setsuna F. Seie providing long range support while Exia attacked the enemy in close quarters. In season 2 however this was rarely seen. I am assuming this was because the Lockon Stratos in season 2 was inexperienced, and thus needed more mentoring. Plus add to that the fact that the 00 Gundam that Setsuna piloted in Season 2 was powerful enough to not usually need support anymore from the other Gundams of Celestial Being. But then again, as always, that's just me thinking out loud... *snicker*

The 1/100 Gundam Cherudim is selling for $37.00 at Amazon, 1819 yen at HWJapan, 1907 yen at Amiami , 2600 yen at Hobby Link Japan.
