Key features
  1. Unique Aesthetics and Design: The Hugo's design is heavily influenced by the ancient mobile suits from the Calamity War era, which is evident in its head's shape and its body's streamlined form. This gives it a unique retro-futuristic look compared to other mobile suits in the IBO series.
  2. Versatile Armament System: The Hugo is well-equipped for a variety of combat scenarios. Notably, it features a pair of arm-mounted blades, which can be utilized in close-quarters combat. Additionally, it carries a handheld rifle for ranged engagements and two sub-arms on its back, which can be used to grasp additional weapons or objects.
  3. Enhanced Mobility Features: One of the standout features of the Hugo is its set of binders on its back, reminiscent of wings. These aren't just for show; they enhance the mobile suit's speed and maneuverability, allowing the Hugo to engage in swift hit-and-run tactics and quickly reposition on the battlefield.

In a nutshell, the Bandai 1/144 HG IBO Hugo is a mobile suit that blends the ancient aesthetics of the Calamity War with modern functionality. Its distinct design, varied weapon set, and mobility features make it an engaging model for Gunpla builders and "Iron-Blooded Orphans" fans.

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.
