Bandai 1/144 HG Gundam Calibarn

Experience the fusion of cutting-edge design, magical elements, and a touch of Shakespearean inspiration.

Introducing the highly anticipated Bandai 1/144 HG Gundam Calibarn from the renowned High Grade Gundam series. This latest addition showcases the remarkable design of Suletta's newest mobile suit, featuring pristine pure white armour and a distinctive broom-like beam cannon that adds a captivating touch of "witch" to its appearance.

Originally conceived as a secret Gunpla under the working name of New Product B during the Hobby Next Phase Spring 2023 event, the Gundam Calibarn quickly garnered attention for its exceptional aesthetics and unique weaponry. During the Vanadis Incident, this remarkable mobile suit was seized by the Space Assembly League, earning itself the moniker "Monster" in reference to Caliban, the character from Shakespeare's illustrious play, The Tempest, from which it derives its inspired name.

Like its counterparts in the Gundam Witch from Mercury Gunpla collection, the Gundam Calibarn boasts shell units expertly molded in translucent black plastic, creating a striking visual effect reminiscent of Permet Score levels. Complementing this captivating feature, the kit includes effect stickers designed to be placed beneath the translucent shells, further enhancing the illusion of mystical power and allure.

In addition to its amazing appearance, the Gundam Calibarn offers an alternative shell unit with an iridescent glow effect, providing collectors and builders with a captivating display option. The kit also includes an alternative v-fin with the same iridescent effect, enabling customization and personalization to suit individual preferences.

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

pros: fun build, broom is excellent and visually striking, good shaping of parts -particularly for the chest, rainbow horns really good
cons: poor balance, monochrome is bland, faceplate looks bad and makes me want to replace it with aerials, theres a set of 16 stickers on the end of broom that are painful and repetitive, rainbow stickers don't show up too well unless brightly lit up

A perfect little WFM HG kit

An awesome kit. The chest gives it a sort of bulkiness to the Mobile Suit and is definitely one of the best for the series ending. Articulation is sturdy and robust, allowing many poses and the broomstick rifle gives the witch style feeling that pilots of GUND-Arms are called. Only shame is the shell unit is not the same red as is in the anime but this multicolour is good enough.

3rd fav Witch from Mercury HG kit

It's a great kit, my favourite is still the original Aerial, but this is a gorgeous little kit. Details pop with panel lining and while there is quite a few stickers, it doesn't make the kit feel cheap or look lesser. Definitely recommend to anyone thinking of getting it.
