Nineball Armored Core Ver English Manual & Color Guide

Nineball Armored Core Ver English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Released in December of last year was the 1/72 Nineball from Kotobukiya's Armored Core series of model kits. The Nineball is part of the Variable Infinity series that allows you to interchange parts and weapons with other kits within the series. Armored Core of course is the popular console game where giant piloted robots battle against each other. Armored Core always had a soft spot in my heart. Not only because of the great designs but primarily because Shoji Kawamori of Macross fame designed some of the mecha in the game.

The 1/72 Nineball Armored Core by Kotobukiya is selling for $ at Amazon, 3106 yen at Amiami, 4320 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 4590 yen at Hobby Search
