1/72 Aspina X-Sobrero Fragile English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 Aspina X-Sobrero Fragile English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Released last month by Kotobukiya was the 1/72 scale Aspina X-Sobrero Fragile from their Armored Core line of model kits. Armored Core is the popular video game full of mecha's fighting each other. I remember playing this for the first time on my friend's PS2 and was blown away with the graphics and the game play.

My affinity for the design of Armored Core mecha comes from the fact that some of the mecha was designed by Shoji Kawamori of Macross fame. I've always been a Kawamori fanboy because of his realistic designs in the Macross mech. One can't help but see the genius and inventiveness in Kawamori's design because of the complexity of the transformation that has been a trademark of his designs.

If you grow tired of your regular mecha fare I'd recommend taking a look at some of the kits made by Kotobukiya. They make great plastic mecha model kits that can be worthy of space in your burgeoning display case.

The 1/72 Aspina X-Sobrero Fragile from Armored Core by Kotobukiya is selling for 3720 yen at Amiami, 4160 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 4420 yen at Hobby Search
