BLOG: Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS Side Story – HG IBO Gundam Astaroth
|Aside from the quadruped Gundam Kimaris Trooper, another new kit that made quite the impression was the HG IBO Gundam Astaroth. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, it’s because this mobile suit will appear in the yet-to-be-named Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS side story/Mobile Suit Variation series.
Owned by Volco Wohlen and piloted by Argi Mirage, the only original parts that remain on this Gundam are the head and the frame itself. Volco’s objective is to get the remaining Astaroth parts scattered everywhere. Bandai will likely produce another kit of this guy for its original form and utilize parts from other kits just like the Barbatos. It also has a giant knife-sword deal as primary weapon, the Demolition Knife.
