BLOG: ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex – Revealed
|As expected, the Gundam Barbatos Lupus gets a mid-season upgrade after its battle with the mobile armor Hashmal — the Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex. Personally they could’ve just dropped the ‘Lupus’ part just to make the name shorter but oh well.
Designed for more brutal close combat battles, the Lupus Rex features longer arms with noticeable claws on each digit (with two for each feet) and a telescopic tail blade which it probably took from the Hashmal.
It’s also noticeable how Sunrise / Bandai didn’t go with the multiple forms route this season and instead went back to the more traditional mid-season upgrade.
