ARMORED CORE CREST CR-C89E ORACLE VER. FINE SCALE MODEL KIT
The next robot in the Variable Infinity Series from Armored Core For Answer is none other than Evangel’s CREST CR-C89E ORACLE VER. The infamous and potential Dominant Raven's AC is ready for battle with this powerful new model kit that positively bristles with weaponry. Build the robot according to its specs, or swap out armor or weapon parts from any of the Variable Infinity Series units to personalize it. Standing 7 ½ inches tall (1/72 scale), this unit is comprised of approximately 400 parts and when fully assembled it has 30 points of articulation for extreme poseability. AC kits require easy snap fit assembly with included pictorial assembly instructions and do not need to be painted.
AIM FOR THE TOP!! GUNBUSTER ~ GUNBUSTER D-STYLE MODEL KIT
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Another classic anime series brought to life in a whole new style, Aim for the Top!! Gunbuster joins the D-Style lineup with GUNBUSTER! Designed to fight the rampaging Space Monsters, this super-deformed “giant” robot is a tough little guy with a lot of character. The Gunbuster D-Style model kit captures the look of the original mecha with stunning detail in a cute little package. With 40 pre-painted parts and easy snap-fit assembly, no glue or paint is necessary! You can display the diminutive robot in any action pose including flying with the included display base with movable arm! Standing at 4 ¾ inches tall, this little robot has approximately 14 points of articulation.
MUV-LUV ALTERNATIVE ~ TAKEMIKAZUCHI TYPE-00R FINE SCALE MODEL KIT
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! From the hit sequel Muv-Luv Alternative comes a brand new line of Fine Scale Model Kits! The first of the awesome fighting robots from that series is none other than the TAKEMIKAZUCHI TYPE-00R! Specially designed for its battle prowess, the Type-00R is reserved for only the general, also known as “shogun.” That’s also where it gets its brilliant color palette, with purple the symbolic color. With heavy armor made up of angular plates and its distinctive horned head, the Takemikazuchi is imposing on the field of battle and on your shelf. The robot stands approximately 7 inches tall and comes with a wide variety of accessories and weapons.
