HG Gundam Astaroth

Presenting my customised Astaroth “Akimbo” Lupus! Standing next to him is my customised Astaroth Rinascimento which was completed 2 years ago.

This is my 2nd Astaroth in my collection. I think Bandai has made 3 variants of this kit but this is not saying I am getting all 3 versions of it.

What I like about this kit is that the design reminds me of the RX-78 Grand-daddy look-alike for the IBO series.

Also the backstory of this mobile suit is basically an assembled mobile suits using different junk parts from different suits. This kind of how I imagine how I put my kits together.

I am also interested in the asymmetrical design which give it a unique take on whatever is available in the “box of chocolate”.

I painted my Astaroth “Akimbo” Lupus with Vallejo Medium Blue and G-Studio White to give it a non-aggressor colour. Somehow it also looked like a UN Peacekeeper for space (another space police)!
This is just a side-by-side comparison to the Barbatos Lupus which my Astaroth “Akimbo” shared many parts with.
