MG 00 Raiser English Manual & Color Guide

MG GN-0000+GNR-010 00 Raiser English Translation of Color Guide & Manual

Finally released this month by Bandai was the 1/100 MG 00 Raiser (Double O Raiser) flown by Setsuna F. Seie in Gundam 00 Season 2. This mobile suit is comprised of the Double O Gundam mecha and the O Raiser support craft.

In the anime series, the purpose of the O Raiser, was aside from a weapons platform, was to stabilize and maximize the twin GN drives used by the Double O Gundam which had a nasty habit of shutting down whenever Setsuna used TransAm. The O Raiser was piloted by reluctant Celestial Being captive, Saji Crossroad.

Prior to this, Bandai already released a 1/100 00 Raiser (normal and designer's color) as well as a Perfect Grade 00 Raiser. Then of course there was the 1/144 variants of the 00 Raiser.

This kit comes with 1 LED Unit but the actual model kit can be fitted with a total of 5 LED units. 3 of which can be used in the Double 00 Gundam while 2 can be fitted in the O Raiser. You also have the option to build the Double O Gundam as having GN Condensers instead of GN drives, to recreate the 00 Raiser from the Gundam 00 Movie. 00 Raiser had lost its Twin Drives at the end of the Season 2 when Setsuna and Ribbons Almark decided to have their Exia vs O Gundam mobile suit death match.

I saw some Gundam LED's being sold at Amazon. Do take caution however in leaving your LED unit on for a long time (like by connecting it directly to a DC power supply instead of using batteries) as it might end up melting your 00 Raiser or worse, burning down your house when your 00 Raiser catches fire from the heat.

The 1/100 MG 00 Raiser from Gundam 00 is selling for $63.38 at Amazon
