That appears to be a GN-X arm I think, or something that looks like one.

If this is very shortly after the ELS conflict, then chances are it's a stopgap measure. Celestial Being would be hurting for funding and resources. They *just* got done building a state-of-the-art Gundam with GNZ-series tech and a properly functioning Twin Drive System, which teleported off to who knows where, and one of their other Gundams was destroyed, their mothership wrecked by ELS assimilation, and presumably their Exia and Dynames units had to be upgraded again from damage or something, seeing as how we're on a fourth iteration of the Exia and a third iteration of the Dynames, when we didn't even get to see the Dynames R2.

Another possibility is that arm is ELS tech.

I concur with that. Celestial Being were already in a tough financial and situation during the movie due to them using most of it during the final Innovator battle.

Their situation even affected how the Fifth Generation Gundams development (mainly Zabanya and Harute) and likely spent a lot of their available resources on the new Twin Drive System - who just left them.

Harute was also last seen being blasted by an ELS beam so we are sure about the state of its GN Drive. In a worst case scenario, Celestial Being might be down to just one Original GN Drive, Zabanya’s.

Oh well at least they still have their Flag.......and they just so happen to have a Flag specialist/fanboy right there too.

Well I guess a better question is what happened to the Exia R3 in that one of its arms was damaged? I assume it's just unarmored because it had the GN Condenser at the elbow joint.

The manga shows that the 00 Qan[T], Zabanya, and Harute weren't the only Gundams deployed in that battle. Chances are the Repairs were fielded by Fereshte like the GRM Gundam was.

Weren't Exia and Dynames stationed on Earth though? Not saying they couldn't have gotten them back into space, but that is what I read( though admittedly I don't follow the side stories too much and haven't followed 00 since the movie ended).

We all know Exia is extremely popular, but repair iv?? Wow, poor Exia, for the better of humanity (bandai's revenue) you must stay in the front line

Waitaminute, Graham is fuckin' alive???! And he is now an ELS thanks to Setsuna?

Wow, it seems like they made ELS function like the Fountain of Youth and immortality-source. After this new facts being released, the movie-manga ending where Setsuna made Marina young and pretty again doesn't feel so far-fetched anymore. Heck, I think that's the very reason Setsuna came to her: to immortalize her and bring her to a better place.

Also, Exia Repair IV piloted by Graham and given his own name to it .

Exia's designation as an anti-Gundam mobile suit gets increasingly more important in a world dominated by the usage of GNMS. Of course it's going to stay at the front line, jokes aside.

somewhere, some modeler is scratch-building the kits into the Exia Repair IV and Dynames Repair III as we speak.

No doubt they're done with them already.

The more I think about it, the more I'm certain that the Exia Repair IV's left arm is ELS technology. It retains a silver color, it's too thick to be the inner GNMS frame, and looks far too organic in design compared to the rest of the mobile suit. What's more, translations of the Sakibure mentioned that some of the mobile suits contain an ELS "component" in the head, which I always thought was an odd term for a living organism--perhaps it wasn't referring to the ELS themselves, but technology created by them.

It's also telling that it happens to appear on a mobile suit that's piloted by an ELS hybrid Innovator, and on that Innovator's dominant side.

It's a significant piece of info to leave out though, isn't it? I mean it's not impossible, you raise good points. I just figure such a thing would be flat out mentioned.

A thought just occurred to me......what the hell happened to Dynames Repair II? In the movie, it was still in Repair I.

Yes, that is true. Exia Repair III and Dynames Repair were based on Earth. This is because smuggling things on the space elevator have become a lot harder after Season 2 due to the ESF tightening security (the natural reaction to one of the elevators being hijacked and destroyed). Rather than smuggling mobile suits up and down all the time, Celestial Being just stationed them for a particular field.

00 Gundam was stationed for space-use with both Seven Sword/G and 0 Raiser equipment sets ready to go at any time. Setsuna chose the 0 Raiser during the movie sorties because he wanted to emphasize the communication field aspect, which Raiser is better at.

Though I doubt the ESF cared when they were being invaded by shapeshifting metal aliens that are trying to consume everything - they probabaly even welcomed the help. There was also months of preparation time for the final battle so plenty of time to get it into space if they were indeed used there.

In all fairness, they’ve explained next to nothing about the Exia Repair IV, including it’s new swords. So I suspect they’re saving the profile info for later.

Discussing about Gundam 00 mechs in 2018. Man this feels good as a 00 mecha fanboy such as myself.

It's probably just me. But I feel 00 has a more believable evolution of ms and its weaponry. From GN sword I to IV. From MS that just has the gn drive, to modification after the discovery of Trans-arm, to twin drive with contemporary gn drives to new MS being developed with the idea of twin drive in the very beginning. You can clearly see a development curve in here, and I think 00 does it better than other series in this regard
