    Sorry I didn't have a camera phone. But today I found Armored Core knock-offs at Dollar General. There was 3 in a set, advertised as having swappable parts and each came with a display base. Sold under the M.A.R.S. Defender line. Looked pretty low-quality too.

    I never saw anything like this before, I apologize if this is old news.

    I saw these a couple of days ago at my local Dollar General. Didn't know what they were, though.

    They are also at Walgreens. Saw them there today as well. They used to be sold in single form, as well as with some sets at Wal-Mart and Target I believe.

    Hmmm, some of those weapons look useable for TF's, I see one that would look neat with my Landmine...

    Eh, they're Armored Core-ish, but not exactly Armored Core knock offs. You can definitely see some AC inspiration in some of the parts, but that's about it.

    Might be nice to grab some extra weapons though, KOs are certainly great for that.

    Yeah, they aren't bad, and the guns work well for some deluxe size Transformers or Gundams.
