A New Order of NEXT 04

Would you be interested in an Armored Core book? Here’s you chance.

A New Order of “NEXT” sells for as low as 2625 yen (used). More pictures of the contents after the jump: Continue reading »

Here are a bunch of Armored Core papercraft models made by a person known as 東雲 遠音, who has painstakingly created three different Armored Core models out of paper. Papercraft or Paper Models for those who are new to the hobby, is the creation of 3D scale models using nothing but paper (or card paper for a little more stability in the finished product), glue, and a cutter. Hobbyists print out pre-set patterns of the models (sometimes of their own creation) and after hours of hard work, a 3D paper model of the figure emerges.

Time consuming and somewhat difficult to do, Papercrafting is a labor of love. As 東雲 遠音 shows, it is also rewarding as he has created the basic starter AC from Armored Core Nexus, a GA SUNSHINE AC, and a SOLDNER AC from Armored Core: For Answer. He also created an X-SOBRERO core, but the remaining parts might have been discontinued due to the flimsy frame.

Watch videos of him assemble AC models from paper after the jump: Continue reading »

From its long barrel, heavy weight, and its modest ammo capacity, the Sniper Cannon might lead you into thinking that it’s just another member of Armored Core’s Grenade Launcher family. But while they may look alike, the SC and the GL are entirely different weapons in how they introduce your demise. Continue reading »

Oh you’re my only sunshine! The GA SUNSHINE model kit we were hoping to exist will indeed materialize soon. The kit seems to feature a dessert tan finish, two sets of two weapons (CHEYENNE-02 missiles and the basic GA bazooka), which makes it essentially a stripped down version of the game version’s weapons (much like the Rosenthal kit prior to the Noblese Oblige release). Still we’re pretty excited for this one.

Also, an awesome looking Frame Arms model kit which looks like it can exist in the realm of Armored Core as well. Frame Arms picture after the jump: Continue reading »

Dare I say that I’m screaming like a fangirl along Otome Road? This scanned picture from the latest issue of Hobby Japan (or Dengeki Hobby Magazine, we really couldn’t tell) shows what seems to be a planned model kit from Kotobukiya’s Variable Infinity line of Armored Core models. This next attraction comes in the form of the GA SUNSHINE, one of the default corporate sponsored ACs available to the player in Armored Core 4 and Armored Core: For Answer. The kit appears to feature two bazookas and two missile packs, though this may change as time goes by. No plans for a release date as of the moment, but it is definitely something to look out for if you want an AC on the heavy side.

Thanks J.E. for making us go Kyaaa~.
