When I finally put my controller down from playing Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, I wondered why we didn’t see any cool toys for the equally fantastic game. Sure, we had the collector’s edition, but honestly, it wasn’t something the average collector could acquire. Thankfully, that will not be an issue much longer as Bandai has revealed that Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is heading to its Tamashii Nations Robot Spirits line-up.
The Tamashii Nation name is well known in the toy space, and it’s so vast that it consists of multiple brands, including S.H. Figuarts, Figuarts ZERO, Chogokin, Metal Robot Tamashii, and many more. With the Tamashii Nations Robot Spirits line-up, you typically see Gundams and a few others brought to life, and many of us have more than a few of them in our homes, or maybe that’s just me.
Not to be confused with Gunpla, as those you need to assemble yourself. These will be fully assembled and articulated toys that we can pose and look at for hours for no apparent reason. With the news of Armored Core VI joining the series, I can only imagine which mecha’s we’ll see from the game and on store shelves.
The only bummer is we don’t know precisely when these toys will be available. However, with the 2023 New York Comic Con just a few weeks away, maybe we’ll see them on display there and an announcement of sorts.
