From the new anime series Mobile Suit Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans comes the 1/100 Gundam Barbatos 6th Form model kit by Bandai. One of only 72 “Gundam Frams”, the ASW-G-08 Barbatos Gundam fought in many campaigns during the Calamity War which took place 300 years ago. The Barbatos unit was salvaged many years later to be used as a power reactor until pilot Mikazuki Augus uses it in battle during an attack in a last ditch effort to save his friends. The Barbatos achieves high performance that surpasses even modern day mobile suits thanks to its twin Ahab Reactors. Although the ASW-G-08 Barbatos is powerful, it also puts a high amount of stress on the pilot, making it difficult to fight for long periods of time.
The 1/100 Gundam Barbatos 6th Form model kit is fully detailed and utilizes Bandai’s latest technologies and lightweight plastics to bring this incredible mobile suit to life. Not only does this kit come in a non-grade 1/100 scale but it also features a full inner frame just like a Master Grade kit. The 6th form of the Barbatos Gundam has heavier armor and that is fully represented in this kit, the proportions are spot on and satisfying to the eye while the color separation and wide range of articulation leaves a lasting impression. The 1/100 Gundam Barbatos 6th Form model kit also comes with a variety of accessories including the mobile suit’s signature mace, decals, and a very large rifle.
The 1/100 scale Non-Grade line of model kits by Bandai offers larger proportions closer to that of their Master Grade kits while offering a building experience more akin to the High Grade line of model kits.
