    A friend introduced me into these models as he has two Master Grades he did a while back. I’m an Engineer, and grew up watching Toonami so I was familiar with some of the Gundam series. I bought three different Gundam models ( Entry Grade RX-78-2, High Grade Blazing Gundam and this High Grade Barbatos Lupus) for around $60. Overall, I enjoyed all three with the Barbatos Lupus and Blazing Gundam being my favorite as the detail is very good. For first timers these models are all very easy as the detailed steps and instructions are easy to follow. There are some details in the instructions that take a minute to confirm how the part is oriented before assembling. Being a HG Gundam these models only stand around 5-1/2” (14cm) tall. Also, some of the fitment of the parts are not as tight as I would have hoped making some of the joints prone to easy movement or removal. Overall, the price and detail of the model was very good and give it 4 stars.

    Noticed this product was on sale for very cheap and had to pick it up. Unfortunately there were some downsides to it.

    Starting off, if you enjoy the build more than the product, this build is very short. I was done in an hour and a half. This is only my second build, I’m no expert, but this one was drastically easier than the 1/144 Freedom Gundam I built before.

    Second, the posability of this figure is extremely limited. Its joints move well, but the bulk of its armor stands in the way. In my attempts to get it into a good action pose, I found myself having to reattach several parts as they knocked each other off. Mainly the armor plating for its butt area, but occasionally the entire torso pops off too.

    And unimportant, but still something to consider, the sword is NOT snug in its hands. It will slide up or down due to its weight and the hands not being tightly gripped around it. The swords size can also throw off the balance if you aren’t using a stand for it.

    Overall, the product is still good, and could be a great beginner kit due to the low number of pieces and time required to build.
    I would recommend, even with the few complaints.

    My son’s first build and he loved it.

    Barbatos is so fricking cool!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was one of the first Gunpla I assembled and I got him purely because of how awesome he is! I have gone and started watching Iron Blooded Orphans so I could see more of this gorgeous mobile suit!!!!! Barbatos Lupus was super easy to assemble even for a beginner like me! He is pretty sturdy although the point where the waist connects with the torso is a bit loose. But otherwise he has great detail for a higher grade and he is extremely poseable. I love taking pictures of him and getting to look at him on display! He is truly awesome!!!!!

    It’s a standard HG. Assembles nicely. I like to practice customization with these kits. Changed the paint and did a diorama. 😁

    Beautiful mold, and mostly stellar sticker amount/placement, but the red plastic supporting the ankle joint is prone to breaking leaving the ankle to droop freely. Gunpla plastic is generally not the best quality, and it remains especially true for the thinner bits in this model.

    Try not to handle the model after it’s been built to reduce the strain to the weaker joints.

    I like the look of the model. Although, I think that’s due more to the style of Barbatos. It naturally has an aggressive look that even carries over into the 1/144 scale models.

    Overall, this model is easy to assemble. My only complaints were the limited range of the hip and shoulder joints. Also, the top and bottom halves of the model are connected via a single ball joint. That particular piece has a gimmick built in to allow it to slide forwards and backwards slightly. This movement is very loose and the model tends to slouch forwards because of it. From what I’ve read in other reviews, it looks like I’m not the only one who had this issue. Furthermore, the sword nearly broke in half during assembly. The large blade is affixed to a narrow handle and that’s where the weak point is. Be mindful of that.

    I custom painted my model in pearl metallic paints via airbrush. I didn’t bother using the decals. I airbrushed those areas the intended colors. Afterwards, I panel lined and covered the model in a gloss clear coat.
