Key features
  1. Adaptable Armament System: One of the standout attributes of the Dantalion is its "Half-cowl" T-Booster backpack. This T-Booster can be transformed and attached to its arms, converting them into gigantic blades for melee combat. Additionally, when attached to the back, it offers enhanced flight capabilities and speed.
  2. Distinctive Aesthetics: The Dantalion has a sleek and somewhat minimalist design, with its noticeable "faceless" head, setting it apart from other Gundams in the series. This design choice gives the Dantalion an eerie and mysterious presence, enhancing its appeal.
  3. B-Booster Attachment: This optional equipment further emphasises the versatility of the Dantalion. When the B-Booster is attached, it provides the Gundam with additional firepower and transforms its silhouette, giving it an even more menacing look. The B-Booster, combined with the T-Booster, showcases the wide range of combat styles the Dantalion can adopt, making it one of the more versatile mobile suits.

In summary, the Bandai 1/144 HGIBO Dantalion stands out for its adaptive combat capabilities, unique design features, and the option for further expansion with its B-Booster. These aspects make it a compelling choice for Gunpla enthusiasts who appreciate versatile and uniquely designed mobile suits from 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Iron-Blooded Orphans HG series differ from other High Grade Gunpla series?

The Iron-Blooded Orphans (IBO) HG series is tailored to reflect the unique mobile suit designs and aesthetics of the "Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans" anime. The kits often feature inner mechanical details known as the "frame system," which gives the models a greater range of articulation and poseability compared to some other HG series.

I'm particularly interested in the Barbatos mobile suit. Is there a model for that in the HG IBO series?

Absolutely! The Barbatos is one of the standout mobile suits from the IBO series, and there are multiple iterations of the HG Barbatos available, reflecting its various forms and upgrades throughout the anime. Each offers a unique design and weaponry, ensuring you can choose the one that resonates most with you.

Given the distinct design of IBO mobile suits, are these HG kits more complicated to build than other High Grades?

While the IBO HG series showcases unique designs and the frame system, the complexity is still in line with other High Grade kits. They are designed to be accessible, especially for those familiar with HG builds. However, the frame system does add an enjoyable layer of depth for builders who appreciate inner details. Q4: Do the Iron-Blooded Orphans HG kits come with decals and accessories relevant to the series? A4: Yes, they do! The IBO HG kits often come with an array of weaponry, like maces, swords, and rifles, true to what's seen in the anime. Additionally, decals are provided to enhance the model's appearance and capture the intricate designs of the mobile suits. Q5: I've heard about Tekkadan, the main faction in the IBO series. Are there HG kits representing other factions or mobile suits from opposing forces? A5: Indeed! While Tekkadan's mobile suits like the Barbatos are prominent, the HG IBO line also includes kits from other factions and forces, such as Gjallarhorn. This allows you to build and showcase the diverse range of mobile suits from the rich world of Iron-Blooded Orphans.
