If anything, the face seems to be inspired by the Physalis' head. Now, I wonder if Tiera will get a cannon that shoots nukes. =p

GN Nukes? Sounds hefty but awesome.

Yeah, that does look like a GP02A mug.

If that mecha follows the lineage of Virtue and Seravee then it looks like it shed a lot of weight. Looks like a Nadleeh face behind the double chin.

I'm just hoping none of these new Gundams have bucket feet syndrome like Cherudim.

Can't resist jumping on the speculation bandwagon :D
There are these two columns on both sides coloured similar to its chest, got to wonder if they're part of the mech, or just the maintenance structure. No matter how I look at it, they're definitely connected to the shoulders.

Nope, that's an extremely weak photoshop of Cherudim.

Here, have the exact scene from S2 e19:

A bit off topic from the discussions of the newly released images of the Movie Gundams.....

This is regarding Tau Trans-Am,what exactly are the extent of the damage that the Drives suffer anyway,based on the profiles of the DX Mechanics March 09 Issue and the HG Hilling Garazzo manual?

I'm trying to know the degree of damage here,if I am not mistaken,the language used in the former implies pretty strong damage,but can somebody re-confirm this for me?

Trying to remember whether the destruction is immediet or is it a heavy damage situation where the Drive is barely functioning.....

I'm loving the shot of the Rafael, especially the Gaddessa parts. I suppose CB has gained all the design info for those suits after retaking veda.

I don't think anyone (except maybe billy) would design something like a Nuke with a GN drive, thats like putting a spear on the end of a cruise missile, you just don't need it.

instead of making a big boom, GN Nuke turns everybody in the blast radius into Innovator. :wink: insta win. :mrgreen:

If it means that my GN tumors have a negative weight and I can use them to float around, nuke me! 8)

Well, if it's Raphael doing the GN Nuking it wouldn't be a problem. Presumably it's got a true Drive and we know those produce good particles that cure 'GN Cancer' (along with bad attitudes and poor communication).

I dunno,Chall suffered radiation poisoning from a True Drive,and it affected her health pretty poorly.A rare anamoly compared to the early Tau Drives,but it still happened.And GN Particles are dangerous in beam form,poisonous or not.

Still,I think a Tau Twin Drive may possibly do a good job when it comes to mass Innovation,or at the very least many Tau Twin Drive Systems placed into a giant ship or something.They may need to use the green particle configuration though,since those have the best compression abilities.....and alot of electricity as well.But its not going to be worth it for the moment even if they have True Innovators manning them,unless they can prevent the Drives from being destroyed in Trans-Am,at the moment the Tau Drives cannot survive it.

Wasn't that due to a containment failure, as opposed to the normal particle exhaust from operating a GN mobile suit's systems?

As for the beams, isn't it already established that living things affected by beams generated from particles from a "true"/green GN drive won't suffer the effects we saw in, for instance, Louise's case?

That's exacly my point,the green wavelength GN Particles are suppose to be non-hazardous radiation no matter what form they are.In Chall's case she suffered permanant radiation effects that made the regenrative effects not work on her.

And the GN Particle Exaust of the S1 Tau Drives are harmless.It was mentioned in the 00 world Report.The only time when the red Early Taus are radiation poisonous in when they are in beam form.

But from Chall's incident,it appears that the green themselves can cause it under certain conditions.Probably less common than the S1 Tau configuration.

Considering that all GN Particles are the same at the basic level and differ only in their compression forms,I guess just because some form is good at some things more than others, does not mean that they cannot cause an effect that they do not specialise in alltogether,their probably just less good on it in.

That's suppose to be the case in all situations.Appearantly not for Chall.

Look carefully, it's quite clear Raphael's face is a Zeta mask with a chin guard on it.
