In a really REALLY strange move, Bandai is going back and undermining the entire idea of the Full Mechanics line by adding an IBO suit to the MG lineup after all! We won't complain! This release will feature much more detail and stability in the inner frame along with a load of new gimmicks in the weapons and armor!

    Every Gundam Fan Has To Own THIS My gold stand for Master Grades has been Dynames.

    My low point may well be the fragile MG Deathscythe.

    But Barbatos is something else entirely - on par with Dynames but a very different build, mirroring how Iron Blooded Orphans is unlike any previous Gundam series.

    From the pistons to the lack of need to use the stickers, this looks and functions unlike any other MG you've ever built. It's solid, sturdy and one of the instantly coolest looking additions to your shelves.

    Let's put is this way - EVERYONE must buy it. I wouldn't make it your first MG build, but this is the kit everyone must own.

    One note - absolutely ONLY use Action Base 4 if you're going to use an Action Base. You want the space and sturdiness to really pose Barbatos in all his brutal might.

    The MG no one thought would happen turns out to be one of the best. Since 2015, we've heard the line "There's never going to be a MG Barbatos. The 1/100 is a pseudo-MG anyway, so we don't need one anyway." The release of the HiRM version at the same scale only drove that home. There was a high and and a low-end 1/100 Barbatos and we didn't need another.

    But Bandai surprised us all with the announcement of a proper MG, and definitively proved it's something totally different from the 1/100 kits before it. Not only that, it's one of the most unique Gundam builds ever, and also one of the best.

    First and foremost is the pretty heavy redesign, especially by MG standards. While maybe not as "out there" as the HiRM version, it sports some very different proportions, less blocky and more athletic, with a ton of added and reimagined detail. I was never a fan of the Barbatos design in old kits, bit the redesign has made a believer out of me.

    Then there is the improved color accuracy, one of the weakest aspects of the old kit. Gone are the big, nasty sticker seals. Now, everything is molded in the correct color, and looks accurate right out of the box. The only foil stickers are an optional pair for the eyes (which are in clear green anyway), and one for the camera in the gun. I do wish the latter could have been a separate piece but it's a small complaint. The metallic pink sticker markings are now separate clear pink parts that peek through the white and look great, especially if you put some chrome paint on the reverse side.

    Then there's the inner frame. This was actually one of the best aspects of the original kit, which did feature a full, MG-style frame, but this is on another level. It's incredibly intricate and detailed, with 14 separate working pistons, and fantastic articulation. It's so well done, it's a display-worthy kit in and of itself. There are even decals for parts of the frame that are never exposed, specifically for those who want to do a "naked" build.

    I don't have many complaints about the kit, but I do think it's one that invites a bit of extra work, maybe more than most MGs. There's an awful lot of solid white, and the whole frame is a mass of gray. Painting and detailing the separate parts really makes a huge difference. It takes me back to detailing engines in model cars.

    It was an involved build and I ended up painting the whole thing. It was a huge project, but the result was the best kit I have sitting on my shelf today. It's just an amazing not of engineering. And it's priced like a baseline MG too.

    Great kit!!! This kit is great! The attention to detail on the hydraulics were awesome. The only issue I have is the hands, specifically the armor on the back of the hands are a little hard to figure out. And I'm not really a fan of the interchangeable fingers. I prefer the 2.0 or 3.0 hands. Hopefully the later models use these instead.

    One of the best MGs ever! This thing was an absolute blast to build, it taking roughly 15 episodes of IBO, with some breaks. The detail is beyond compare, even without any panel lining. My only gripes are the pistons can be tricky to work with at first, and the gun is somewhat confusing at first. Get this kit, and mourn the Full Mechanics...

    Best MG of 2019! I think this has to be the best MG kit of 2019, very narrowly beating Gundam Dynames. You even get decals for the inner frame itself and the articulation of the frame is absolutely impressive and looks amazing. Build is fun and his weapons are amazing and awesome. A must get MG for all Gunpla builders
