Not exactly. This is a new MSV that re-designs the backpack to be armor parts instead, though I'm not sure of the full extent of this re-design.

I'd like to try and kitbash this. (That is, if you call combining the backpack of the same kit, a kitbash).

I remember all the people wanting the Raphael backpack to become armor... and it suddenly happened

This chapter supposedly takes place during the Innovator War that occured after the ELS war.
I will pleasure myself to the image of that Gundam, every night. This Innovator War story is becoming VERY VERY intriguing, I sure hope it gets a separate side story arc. Rather than just being mentioned here and there.

What the motherF is this? It just came out of nowhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This has got to be one of the non lazy MSV designs I've seen. Kudos to them.

Its too bad this is the final Senki chapter and 00N one too. With this, the 00 series is officially over. Its been a good run people.

For a guy who fully appreciated the original Raphael, I find this variation ugly, unfortunately.

I appreciated the original Raphael as well, but my only complaint with the Raphael Dominions is the color change of the backpack.

IMHO the Raphael Dominions looks good for a kitbash, just need to do something about the colors, specifically the black parts clashing with the white on the Seravee II parts and the violet on the Raphael

Ah the colours could be better, yeah.

I just feel the armour were slapped here and there. They feel loose in a way they could be discarded easily and they'll be remove easily the moment the Raphael moves.

I personally feel the reverse, I used to like Raphael but since a while I have started to find it dissatisfactory. This design by contrast seems to have given me what I wanted, feels like it fits better in the Virtue lineage, hell finally a new Virtue so to speak. Seravee II gives me a vibe of that to a limited extent, but its still very much Seravee.

Only real manly suits like Arche Jagd has the balls to wear a dress.

I noticed this as well, but for some reason I find this to be one of the bigger positives of the design. The base Raphael is actually quite noticable in this picture from the head, torso, arms unlike Virtue which almost completely covers Nadleeh (not that it was a bad thing but I find an interesting contrast).

In fact, I'm beginning to theorize that it was purposely made to be discarded easily. Some parts even look like they can connect with each other even with the absence of the Raphael wearer.

Is it just me, or does it look like what's left of the legs of the backpack have GN Cannons on them?

I think some of it is there. Which makes me speculate this armor can actually do something more than being armor. It would be awesome if it can it can turn into Seravee II again.

I'm okay with the colors, white has always been a big part of Virtue line. But if I had a complaint for the design, I wish the Virtue Bazooka was slightly modified even more. Then again, that is pretty much Seravee's Bazooka in its form anyways, which did not change very much even after it became Raphael's.

Yeah, this months Senki and 00N are the last so the Dominion is our last G00 MSV. 00N is doing something related to ELS 00 Qan(T) or something but we havent seen the images yet. With this however, Gundam 00's run has ended on all fronts. Thanks for a good 3 and the half years 00, you were one hell of a series to enjoy.

But we still have the Final Mechanics (aka 3rd Mechanics following the 1st and 2nd) sourcebook coming in April though, so that may be the final definitive source. Seems appropriately named.........
