Key features
  1. Adaptive Armour System: The Gundam Barbatos is known for its adaptive armour configurations, and the 6th Form is no exception. This form introduces additional armor, especially on its chest and shoulders, giving it a bulkier and more intimidating presence. This extra armour provides enhanced protection in battle, especially during close combat scenarios.
  2. Massive Wrench Mace: One of the defining features of the 6th Form is its oversized wrench mace, a powerful melee weapon that can deal devastating blows to enemies. It serves as both a tool and a weapon, reflecting Barbatos's origins as a worker mobile suit that was retrofitted for combat.
  3. Rear-mounted Arms: An intriguing design feature of the 6th Form is the addition of sub-arms on its back, which can be equipped with various weapons or tools. These arms can fold over the Barbatos's shoulders, giving it the ability to use multiple weapons simultaneously and increasing its combat versatility.

Overall, the Bandai 1/144 HGIBO Gundam Barbatos 6th Form is a testament to the mobile suit's evolution and adaptability. It showcases the Gundam's progression in the series, reflecting its growth in combat prowess and its journey with its pilot, Mikazuki Augus. This Gunpla is a must for enthusiasts who appreciate the detailed history and transformation of the Gundam Barbatos throughout the "Iron-Blooded Orphans" series.

Assembly Guide

Skill Level.2 Basic modeling skills are required. Parental supervision may be required for younger children. These kits are generally suitable for beginner builders. A basic set of modeling tools are required including nippers, hobby knife, sanding sticks/paper, file, and tweezers. No glue is needed for the general assembly. Parts will need to be removed by using a pair of nippers and cutting the part away from the runner. Parts may require clean-up where they were removed from the runner.

Gunpla (plastic model kits) are a snap together assembly and do not need plastic cement to complete. We always recommend having some plastic cement handy as a part of your modeler's tool kit. If you prefer to fix your model in a particular pose then plastic cement will work. Plastic cement is also perfect to use if a joint is loose. Apply plastic cement in a single thin layer and allow it to dry completely before test fitting. Re-apply more cement if necessary.

Gunpla (plastic model kits) are designed to be built and displayed without the need for painting. Kits are molded in different colours replicating the colours of the actual mecha from the Gundam series. A technique called colour separation, where multiple parts of the model are molded in different colours on the same sprue is also used. Gundam kits often include stickers or water-slide decals that can be applied to the model to enhance its appearance. Some Gunpla kits come with pre-painted parts or parts with pre-applied details, such as metallic or translucent finishes.

Many modelers still choose to paint their kits to customize and add further detail. Painting allows for more creativity and personalization, enabling modelers to achieve unique effects, weathering, and colour schemes that may not be available out of the box. However, the kits are designed to be enjoyable and visually appealing even without painting, making them accessible to a wide range of hobbyists.
