HG Raphael Gundam English Manual and Color Guide

HG CB-002 Raphael Gundam Construction Manual and Color Guide

The CB-002 Raphael Gundam of Tiera Erde from the Gundam 00 Awakening of the TrailBlazer movie. Not sure if this mobile suit supersedes his previous mobile suits, the Virtue and the Seravee because its designation is different. Previous suits of his had "GN" on its designation, this one begins with a "CB." Similar to the designation given to Ribbon's Gundam.

This suit also doesn't seem to have a mobile suit within a mobile suit, like the Nadleeh hidden in the Virtue and the Seraphim hidden in the Seravee. This makes it all the more interesting to watch the Gundam 00 Movie because of this development. At the end of Gundam 00 Season 2, Tiera Erde was shot by Ribbons Almark, but he was able to live on as a part of the giant computer of Celestial Being known as Veda. In the movie we see that he was given physical form once again.

The High Grade 1/144 CB-002 Raphael Gundam is selling for 1450 yen at Amiami, 2000 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1600 yen at Hobby Search.
