  1. I love the colors, but hate the asymmetry. The Astraea is the pinnacle of 00 designs, and this just doesn't live up to that. Interesting that it appears to have a cone thruster though.

    1. I mean, to be fair, the ultimate pinnacle of 00 designs (00Quan [T]) is RIDICULOUSLY asymmetrical. Different shoulders, the GN shield, etc.

    2. They made astrea's face look generic.
      Its like how season 1 main gundams head looks much better than seson 2 mains.

  2. A new, upgraded version of the Gundam Astraea? I'll take it. Astraea doesn't get much love nowadays.

    1. seems more like it's actually a downgraded 00 gundam despite the name. they seem to have just changed the head, backpack and chest.
      the backpack has a classic s1 style drive slot, while keeping 00's left shoulder slot, and gave them condensers. the torso frame has s1 style giant condenser lense, but still seems to be same structure as 00. all the limbs are indentical to 00
      other than vfin and ear antenna, it really bears no resemblance to astraea at all
