Finally!

An SRC release I actually have Zero interest in! That thing looks like a trainwreck of robot parts. My apologies to anyone who loves the design but... yeah, not for me.

Video game chogokins? This is interesting.

Armored Core is a pretty great mecha game. Its a bit of a niche genre. But armored core has always had the most depth of weapon and part customization. So while I have never seen this specific armor core before, chances are its weapon systems and parts are new items in armored core V to mess with.

It's an a-symetrical design. But I think this case puts emphasis on each extremity as a new play pattern to explore its detail. Kind of reminds me of some old giant robot toys where each area of the robot had some kind of action feature to bullet point on the box. In that way, I dig this design. Granted the leg shield transformation is the only true gimmick.

That massive chainsaw rocket thing is another set. Which costs about half the price of the UCR-10/A.
I don't really think that helps the look of the mecha at all. So unless it does something other than be a well sculpted brick. I'll pass.

Preordered the UCR-10/A though.

Super Mecha Chogokin?

This looks cool but it is NOT a Super Robot. They should be calling this one Super Mecha Chogokin. Still. looks pretty badass

When will you guys learn that

When will you guys learn that Japan doesn't care about the totally arbitrary "Super" and "Real" designations for robots outside of Super Robot Wars games (which totally feature both Scopedogs and Mazinger) :3

Besides, Weissritter and Alteisen are both "real robots" and nobody complained about that now did they~

Super Robot Wars, of course,

Super Robot Wars, of course, includes many varieties of real robot. The classic Super Robots View Broadly artbook includes practically every major real robot anime released up to its publication date. The Japanese canons of robot scholarship take little interest in this division of conceptual category which so many American fans take as gospel.

As an interesting example from the history of American fandom, the venerable ToyboxDX Glossary uses "super robots" as a term for all anime robots, dividing them up into the unrealistic "hero robots" and the realistic "real robots" or "mecha", with side-notes that some fans only consider "super robots" to be robots in animated or live-action media produced during the classic 70s era of robot anime. This piece, written in the late 1990s, shows a very different view of what qualifies as a "super robot" than that which contemporary American fans insist upon.

yo dawg I heard you like sawin'

so I put some saws on your saw so you can saw while you saw

Seriously, that looks like the kind of thing that an eleven-year-old boy comes up with as a "custom weapon" for a 40K mini.
