Cherudim Gundam Saga

It has so many straight lines

It has so many straight lines that it looks like it comes from a video game.

But, whatever- the HeavyArms is so far my favorite of the heavy-firepower Gundams out there.

That, or Full Metal Panic

It's pretty much a generic anime robot with a Gundam-looking head. Maybe a cool toy, but it doesn't really LOOK like anything!

Also, what is it with anime robot designers that put these GIANT storage containers for the tiniest weapons? Evangelion, you've got these huge shoulder fins and they have a knife? This guy has these giant boxy things, almost as big as his thighs, and they've got pistols? I mean, I understand the appeal of pop-out deployable stuff--it gives you some great action-animation opportunities--but the color scheme is "gritty realistic", not "deployable toothpick".

on that...

this is just a mission pack of the original cherudim... the real cherudim's purpose is to snipe. while this version, the purpose being to attack enemy bases, has never been used in the anime. and i repeat never been animated in any form whatsoever only can be seen from the manga 00I which is now used to tie in with the movie and 00V which is more like a historian's take with the mecha designs. and as for it looking like it's from full metal panic... yes it's the same mecha designer as kunio okawara has really stagnated. one can look at gundam seed destiny and all one can mostly see compared to seed majority of those designs are just rehashes of some form. the only mecha designed by okawara in 00 is the 0 gundam which josh has reviewed previously.

Yeah its a beefed up version

I like this version than the regular chreudim, and yeah its pretty monochromatic but hes awesome. He also has a few more extra articulation features than the orginal.
