Initially announced at the 1st Shizuoka Hobby Show, Bandai Spirits has released product information for the Gundam Hajiroboshi 2nd Form appearing in the High Grade Iron-Blooded Orphans line of Gundam model kits.
Designed by mechanical designer Naohiro Washio, Gundam Hajiroboshi 2nd Form, as the name directly implies, is the unit’s second form, piloted by protagonist Wistario Afam in Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Urdr-Hunt.
From the damages sustained from the battle with the mysterious mobile armor, Hajiroboshi underwent repairs back at the Venus Radonista colony. The most notable additions were its waist backpack and armaments such as the Cross Mace and Smart Claw Shield.
Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Urdr-Hunt was announced in 2019 by Bandai Namco Entertainment and Sunrise as a spin-off to the Iron-Blooded Orphans TV anime, featured in the mobile game Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans G. The app is available in the App Store and Google Play, and is free to play with in-app purchases.
Produced by Sunrise BEYOND, Urdr-Hunt takes place between seasons one and two of the Iron-Blooded Orphans series, set on the Venus colony of Radonista, following protagonist Wistario Afam piloting the mysterious Gundam Hajiroboshi. Urdr-Hunt sees many of the core staff members from the original series returning to their roles.

It is the year P.D. 323. Gjallarhorn’s political interference in Arbrau escalated into an armed conflict and came to an end thanks to Tekkadan.
News of Tekkadan’s exploits has also reached the ears of Wistario Afam, a young man born and raised at the Radonitsa Colony near Venus. Venus, which lost to Mars in the initial contest for colony development, is a remote planet in which the four economic blocs have little interest. It is now used as a penal colony for criminals, whose inhabitants don’t even have IDs.
