In any case, I still think Exia hasn't revealed its real form as of yet. The way Lockon said it could be taken in 2 ways: the way you thought it really is (just a codename, nothing more), or it could be actually a code name for something else, double meaning, if you may. The Exia is shaping up to be the codename it was named for (Seven Swords), or the Seven Swords could be an upgrade (along the lines of IWSP, Deep Striker, that kind of thing) with which it could unleash its full potential. Damn, the Seven Swords could be the AD equivalent of the Zero System (and it's the one that makes Setsuna think that he is the Gundam, LOL ) for all we know. Come to think of it, I haven't heard the project codes for the other Gundams, and it would be really unusual for the Exia to be the only one with a project codename...which makes it even more suspicious. In any case, it is still too early to say that Exia has already shown what it really can do.
Exia already unleashed all seven of its swords as of this latest episode, where it uses the GN Short Blade.

As cool as your concept of a "Seven Swords" power-up for Exia (and I'd be damned if there is, for it'll really make my day as an Exia fanboy *<<< to ava* ), frankly there's no evidence to back that up from any of the official material we have so far, and the context of the character's words you use to allude to this matter have already been explained to be anything other than a hint to an Exia powerup. The only official upgrade to the Exia we know of is the Avalanche pack, which improves Exia's armor and mobility, but this is unlikely to ever appear outside of the manga 00V. If you want an upgrade, then we can actually consider the addition of the GN Blades as Exia's upgrade, since according to official sources they're supposed to be Exia's most advanced weapons.

And the reason we haven't heard anything regarding the other Gundam's Codenames? Because there's no reason to hear it as of anything plot or story related. Lockon was there to break his wisecracks, and that was why the Seven Swords was mentioned.

Outside of that though, there's no evidence in-series, out of it, officially or even unofficially that points to the term "Seven Swords" being an upgrade of sorts for Exia.

I'm kinda disappointed that Exia's two new GN Blades don't have any special functions except powered up by GN particles. I was hoping that these blades can create powerful shock wave as long range attack

Speaking of Exia, if Setsuna gets an mid series upgrade (which is almost 100%), will it be a brand new Gundam or upgraded Exia? Because in the show Setsuna 'loves' his Exia too much and it's difficult to imagine that he will throw Exia away for a new Gundam

Oh crap, I was looking forward to the OP to happen. anyway, I am still holding on to the stubborn insistence that the Seven Swords codename to be more than just a codename, that name is just too cool not to be used with a (TM).

Really? i think kyrios SO far isnt that bad. i like how it can become a plane and I think its SMG gun features are pretty cool.

But at least it'll get cooler later. I rmember somewhere in this forum, someone posted a picture of one of its weapons that look like...a boomerang or a pincer thing.

Virtue is now way too cheap.

Just standing there all fat and stuff, vaporizing everything in its way.
Reminds me of DBZ......

You're referring to this?

Spoiler for HG Kyrios:

Exia ranks much higher in my book after this episode.

Those GN Blades at full power could probably make pork chop out of Virtue.

There is no battle so far that would tell how strong the armor of the gundams are.

What else do expect from a heavy assualt attacker?

Virtue is the 5th gundam, that means he is made later after all the other gundams, making him the most powerful. ITs like Freedom was made after Justice, so Freedom is stronger. So the organizer has to balance by making Setsuna a meister while Tiere the stronger hitman.

Ehh, not necessarily if they were still made at approximately the same time. For instance, in GSD the Abyss, Chaos and i cant remember the third ones name, were pretty much the same strength. Also the justice wasn't weaker than the freedom, it just didn't have god-kira piloting it.
