Armored Core 1/72 Mirage Model Kit!!!!

I love Armored Core mecha. The video game is aiiight, but compared to Zone of Enders, it's just too slow and clunky for me. I have to admit that I haven't played Armored Core Nine Breaker on the PS2, but according the reviews from Gamespot, you might want to save you hard earned duckets. They gave it a 6.2. Ouch! That's like a D minus which was pretty much my average in college.

Annnnnyyyyhoooo, were here to talk about the new model kit from Kotobukiya. This is the first Armored Core model kit and from the looks of it, very nice indeed. When I first saw pictures of it in Hobby Japan, I was praying that it was an action figure, cause, you know, I'm a lazy bastard and don't have the patience, nor the time to put together these kits even though they are snap- together. Well, to my disappointment, it's not an action figure. It's a 1/72 scale model kit. Oh, well. It still looks awesome. I would have to say that the Mirage is one of the best examples of cool mecha around. It will be released in December, but you can pre-order it now for around $25 not including overseas shipping from the legendary Hobby Link Japan. Get it now!!
