Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Load Astray Double Rebake is a Gunpla created through a collaboration between Koichi Nanase and Tsukasa Shiba, a pair of inseparable Divers. It is without the concept of front or back, and its abilities allow both of its sides to function as the front or back. The unit has a two-seat structure and is controlled by a different Diver when it changes between the Cuadro mode, a mode that focuses on ranged attacks and has standard capabilities, and the Reverso mode, a mode that specializes in melee combat. This enables one single unit to display two totally different battle styles. In other words, opponents attacking it from the back would face a totally different machine. The Cuadro mode is piloted by Koichi, while the Reverso mode is piloted by Tsukasa, and the Gunpla's head transforms when switching between the two modes.
- Gauntlet Saber Claw
- Gauntlet-type weapons equipped on both arms. They can generate high-powered beam blades from the tips during Cuadro mode and function as huge forearms during melee combat in Reverso mode.
- Robe Buster Rifle
- A pair of high-powered firearms mainly used in Cuadro mode, they are mounted on the side of the shoulder armor. They are used as active binders for attitude control in Reverso mode.
- Trusty Haken
- A pair of wired, hook-shaped weapons mounted on the front of the shoulder armor. They can capture opponents after stabbing them and be used in other ways depending on the Diver's creativity.
Koichi Nanase and Tsukasa Shiba were originally planning to build two Gunplas specialized in their respective battle styles, but Koichi proposed an idea to combine the concepts into a single unit. Tsukasa was against this idea, but eventually succumbed to Koichi's enthusiasm.
