Key features
  1. Cross Silhouette Frame System: This SD kit is part of Bandai's Cross Silhouette (CS) series, which allows for customization in terms of frame size. The kit includes both the standard SD frame and a CS frame. Builders can choose to use the standard SD frame for a traditional super deformed appearance or switch to the CS frame to create a taller and more articulated version of the mobile suit. This flexibility allows builders to choose the look and poseability that best suits their preferences.
  2. Articulation and Poseability: With the CS frame, the Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex gains increased articulation and poseability compared to standard SD kits. The CS frame provides a wider range of motion in the arms and legs, allowing for more dynamic and expressive poses. This feature makes the SD Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex not only adorable but also highly poseable.
  3. Iconic Weapons and Accessories: The kit comes with a set of iconic accessories, including the massive "Barbatos Lupus" mace and the large shield. These accessories can be attached to the model, adding to its playability and display options. The inclusion of these signature weapons allows builders to recreate scenes from the Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans series and customize their Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex to their liking.

Bandai SD Gundam Cross Silhouette Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex

It is not often a SD kit will sell out and sell out quickly. But this is what has happened in Japan.

The Barbatos from "Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans" gets an SD Gundam Cross Silhouette release in his Lupus Rex form! The kit features a lead wire for the back tail blade, a sub-arm gimmick deployable without exchanging parts, and comes with both the CS and SD frames for two forms to choose from! You can build the suit with either red or green camera eyes, and stickers are included for multiple eyes options.

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.
