Playing Armored Core 4

Playing Armored Core 4 Answer has made me really want to get some of these guys because they look really nice. I have to constantly remind myself to wait for a toy version.

Hopefully someone will make a sweet White Glint toy.

I'd be inclined to assume they have no intention of making expensive toys when the kits do so well... look at the SRW stuff. Lots of successful kits, a couple crappy toys that get panned. Why bother? The kits with the customization make much more sense for AC anyway.

I just want to know why the Armored Core designs got so ugly? I played some of the first AC game on PSX and always wanted to go back to it, but the analog-stick-less controls drove me nuts. The blocky mechs were sweet tho.

Shoji Kawamori was the mechanical designer for AC1 and AC2. After that they switch primarily to in-house designers. White Glint is a Kawamori design though.

there are some man

there are toys for srw but the main problem is probably finding it as most are rare and believe me it hurts when one of your favorite designs can't be found, i.e. the angelg from advance and og2, because it's a resin kit most of us can't get it unless we are in japan. as for controls man since i began with the nes i've got no problems using directional pads man

The swirly metallic colored plastic in some of the Koto AC kits really turn me off. I wish they'd produce some more variants in smooth, matte colors.

@Prometheum5: You might be in luck; I'm pretty sure one of the more recent Model Graphix had a test shot pic of a blockier AC model. Maybe something from AC5. In the meantime, you might look at some of the Border Break models - they hearken back to a late-'80s/early-'90s design aesthetic.

Although that D-formation is adorable.
