Armor Plates for Cherudim Gundam & Others

Thanks to rpt011r for this amazing find ^^

So those armor plates are indeed an defensive equipment for Chedurim Gundam. I was having a lot of fun looking at their 'application' during free time at work today. XD

Gunpla wise, of course you'll have to assemble the armor plates yourself. The fun part is you can actually assemble them according to the pattern you like. As seen in the previous posting, there are sockets behind the plates, so I'm speculating extra parts are needed to link them to each other.

Very nice honeycomb patterned structure. Plenty of examples on how you can assemble them as well. Are you going to get more HG Cherudim for more armor plates actions? ^^

The goggles are being mentioned as well. Need to see the actual content to know what they are really for.

Anime wise, I believe the plates can move on their own to form the shield in wherever place needed when enemy fire is coming. I don't think Cherudim needs to assemble them himself. Having Cherudim to do so when he's in action doesn't sound so... cool ^^;

On the other hand, new scans of GN-0000/7S 00 Gundam Seven Sword from Hobby Japan December Issue
