The box...

I'm so lucky to get this item with 50% discount from the recent Gundam Sales in HLJ - the official online shop for Shewsbury Land... for 2,375 yen it's crazy not to get this item (original price is 4,750 yen)

Out of the box... you will get all these stuff...

As always, let's have a look at the body...

The face of Seravee...

The head on the backpack that can transform into another Gundam - Seraphim Gundam.

Unlike GFF where there will be decals all over the body, the Robot Tamashii are lacking that features but action pose wise... I personally believe Robot Tamashii are much better than GFF.

Let's play with the weapons... this Seravee in a way for me is like the Launcher Strike Gundam

Apart from the 2 GN Cannons on that shoulder, there are 2 other GN Cannons on the legs of Seravee...

You can combine that GN Bazooka - 2 become 1...

And you can also connect that GN Bazooka (in a single mode) to the GN Cannons mounted at the back/shoulder of Seravee...

Now let's show them all.... just like in the anime, there are hidden hands inside the GN Cannon and it can be used to hold beam saber...

And now let's focus on the backpack or rather Seraphim Gundam...

One thing for sure, the designer choose an unorthodox way in designing the backpack of Seravee or rather the body of Seraphim. Everybody was surprised when they first see that there is a Gundam head at the back of Seravee. At that time before we all watch the 2nd season of the anime we always wonder what the heck is that but surely we thought that design is cool.

In the first season of Gundam 00 anime, Gundam Virtue have Gundam Nadleeh hidden inside it. Seravee Gundam in many ways is an improve version of Gundam Virtue and therefore Seraphim Gundam is suppose to be the improve version of Gundam Nadleeh...

I do have 1 complain about this Seraphim backpack... as the manual is in Japanese therefore I have no chance to understand the information written there and all I can do is to rely on the photos but then again it is not helpful... it took me a solid 1 hour to finally found out how to transform the Seraphim into the backpack and also how to attached that "Gundam face" on it.

To be fair I could go online and search for others blog to learn about it but unfortunately I don't have internet in my house so I have to really look at the items and try to figure it out my self.

Let's have a look at the body...

Some posing with the beam saber...

Overall, I'm still pretty happy with this Seravee/Seraphim set as I am lazy to do the GunPla model kits nowadays. Apart from the complain I mentioned above on the lack of information to transform the Seraphim I guess I don't have any other issue with this item.

Nonetheless I think if you buy the GunPla model kits surely it has it's own greatness and weakness as well. For sure the articulation of the recent 1/144 HG kits is so impressive that make me look down at those previous HG 1/144 kits from Gundam Seed and Seed Destiny era....but 1 thing that I hate about the recent HG 1/144 kits from Gundam 00 anime is that on certain models Bandai is so stingy to give us the beam saber part.


  1. One of my favourite. Paint it...put some stickers. you will surely love it. Hehehe

  2. Unfortunately, I don't have painting skills and tools/equipment...

    Will end up ruined this stuff if I try...

    Stickers/decals, can consider that... do they have Gundam 00 anime decals already? Will check that out later... cheers...
