It’s not uncommon for games to have multiple editions, some offering small bonuses like extra costumes or an extra skill point, while others come with heaps of digital and physical extras, ranging from artbook to models. For Armored Core 6 Fires of Rubicon, their premium edition model looks like an epic and expensive addition to any player’s collector’s items.

Armored Core 6 Model Features a Big, Detailed Mech With All the Trimmings

The Reddit post features a picture of the mech sculpture that comes with the premium edition of Armored Core 6, which includes the mech standing to attention with some large weaponry on its sides. In addition, the model comes surrounded by a hanger-like structure that encompasses the mech, and from what we can see, it looks like it’s a pretty big model to boot.

Of course, a model like this comes with a hefty price tag, in this case, a $400 one. The premium edition also comes with the game, the digital soundtrack, a steelbook, a hardcover artbook, pins, stickers, art cards, and a poster. Whether that’s worth the money is up to you.

Comments on the picture are mainly from fans who are either drooling over how cool the model looks or upset they can’t afford it, with user u/NormieSpecialist simply saying, “I hate being poor.” Others have commented about potential mods and customization we could see, in keeping with the game focus on building your mech how you want, with u/lilBob1989 stating, “Excited to see if people do custom paints on these and if a free 3D print schematic for something similar is available.” That said, some have pointed out that as cool as the model is, it doesn’t seem worth the high asking price, and that’s a more than fair assessment.
