Its been a while since my last blogpost about a Gundam figure from the Gundam Double O timeline as I have fallen love with the beautiful but expensive Yoko Littner from Gurren Lagann and been dazzled by the sparkling chibi version of the Astray Gold Frame. It’s not surprising that my last Gundam 00 figure was the Arios Gundam who’s pilot developed throughout the Gundam 00 story into the love interest of the pilot of my latest Gundam model the GN Archer.
Bad girl turned good
Initially I didn’t want to get the GN Archer but after a while decided to in one of my famed impulse buy moments. GN Archer is piloted by Soma Peries who in the Gundam 00 is the not so classic case of a bad girl turned good, depending on how strong her meds are though she also likes to be called Marie Parfacy. It seems psychotic killers who have had their brains farted on are attracted to others like themselves as she eventually falls for the psycho within ranks of the main Gundam pilots, the Doppelganger named Allelujah Haptism.
GN Archer description and Poll
GN Archer is basically a mini transformable support aircraft that that can fuse with Arios turning it into a powered up missile spewing death dealer from outer space. GN Archer cannot fight extended battles and must always stay close to Arios in order to recharge it’s power periodically during a battle.

Things I like but mostly dislike
One of the least favourite Gundam figures I own is Gundam Cherudim mainly because of it’s big ass tail-end and retarded shield bits implementation. I like the GN Archer more than Cherudim though with it’s best qualities being it’s ability to transform, girly head and torso design and decent colour scheme. I do dislike it’s bland design elements especially in mobile suit mode, limited weaponry other than two GN beam rifles and it’s so tiny I am sure a GN-X III A-Laws could kicks it’s wanna be Gundam behind all over the galaxy and force it to transform and run back to Arios with it’s tail between it’s legs.
