    Didn't see a thread on this yet, outside from some discussion in the Diaclone KO thread. New line by the people behind Acid Rain called Archecore, which seems to be going for a WH40K meets space Vikings vibe, with a dash of Transformers. Some really cool looking stuff here, especially the transforming mecha. Not sure what the scale on these is though.

    It looks like they’re saying Frost Light is 40cm! Holy shit that’s huge! There looks to be a ton of product in the pipeline...cool looking stuff.

    Yeah can't read Japanese, so wasn't sure if they were talking about Frost Light or the big one next to him.

    I think you might be right....it probably is the big one next to him that’s 40cm. Looking at the pic of them side by side would make Frost Light around 27 cm, maybe? Which is still pretty tall!

    Looks quite nice, but I always saw Acid Rain stuff to be obnoxiously overpriced. Don't see these being any different.

    I'd find somewhere for these. A 40cm Viking Transformer with a giant axe is awesome.

    I’d like to see that truck with the usual weathering that TA does for their Acid Rain stuff. Still looks amazing as it is, and I’ll definitely look into getting one.

    Looks like someone is trying to make Space Marine figures. Lol

    That's what I saw when the pics were first shown. Steampunk Space Marines.
    Not bad, but the potential price is very off-putting.

    Seems that the original Weibo post is here: Sina Visitor System (or first one listed here: 微博搜索). Weibo account (Sina Visitor System) is for WonderFestival Shanghai, which is taking place June 13 - 14, and presumably Archecore (and Acid Rain) will be on display there.

    Via Google Translate, also sounds like Archecore is 1/35 scale.
    And there's this FB comment from a few months ago saying that this guy is 23 cm (Facebook):

    The OriToys Acid Rain stuff I had was absurdly detailed with incredible weathered, textures all over.

    but their release schedule and switch to a diff scale really annoyed me. And we never got that Fortress to connect to Stronghold did we?

    ‘anyways, I am keeping an eye on these. They look great but will be bank

    Looking at the listings on their website it shows the single figure Orn Lordbrock is 3250yen ($30usd), Frost Light is 13500yen ($125yen)

    Not bad at all. Just knowing TA’s prices for much smaller, simpler toys I was expecting the Frost Light to be $300.
