Gundam: Nadleeh

From Gundam Wikia:
GN-004 Gundam Nadleeh (aka Gundam Nadleeh, Nadleeh), is the hidden form of GN-005 Gundam Virtue in seasons 1 of Mobile Suit Gundam 00; was later succeeded by GN-009 Seraphim Gundam. The unit is piloted by Tieria Erde.

Behind the masculine bulk of Gundam Virtue, it hides the slender feminine form of Gundam Nadleeh within. To activate Nadleeh, Tieria must utilize his quantum brainwaves to interface with his cockpit to discard Virtue's armor. Designed to serve as Tieria's "trump card," Nadleeh is capable of using Virtue's shoulder cannons as hand-held guns; it's regular complements, GN Shield and GN Beam Rifle (derived from Gundam Plutone) are stored inside Ptolemy in case of emergencies.

In regular combat, Nadleeh is a high speed melee combat unit; it's unclear if Nadleeh comparable to Exia. When Nadleeh is unleashed in battle from Virtue, Nadleeh would reach for its cannons to clear the battlefield with heavy beam firing. When launched just-as in battle, Nadleeh can use fire-and-shield tactics with its shield and beam rifle. For melee combat, the unit has a pair of beam sabers for close range combat. It's unclear of the complete range of Nadleeh's abilities as the unit was rarely deployed for battle. The true power of Nadleeh lies not in a firefight, but in its Trial System.
I bought another 1/144 model kit to complete my Gundam 00 units. It should have been Gundam virtue, but I really didn't like the fat Gundam, so I opted for the slimmer, sexier other self instead.



I really need a new camera. One that focuses really well, and one that enhances the color. Tskk.... Too bad I'm still broke. *Sigh*
