This is an injection-plastic kit of a science-fiction/anime item.
This limited-edition Noir Version of the CR-C98E2 varies from the Nine Ball Version with a gunmetal color scheme great for night operations or just looking good! This Armored Core is a great addition to any collection as it contains some excellent Crest parts. The variety of weapons is great, with a missile launcher, cannon, linear rifle, and blade for getting up close and personal. A display base is also included for the core unit only. Includes a color sheet for the Noir Version, as well as assembly instructions for the core unit display. The kit instructions are all pictures for ease of construction. The pieces are of excellent quality and are molded in color; that's sufficient for a good look, although if a weathered appearance is desired, painting will be a must.
This kit is part of Kotobukiya's "Variable Infinity" series, which allows you to customize your kits just like in the game. The parts are interchangeable so you can take a core, arms, legs, etc. from another kit and just pop it right on! Build your own custom Armored Core without any welding skills!
