I edited the Battousai with some new parts. It's now the A.C. Suralta! Dedicated to my good friend Acie Suralta.
About this creation
This is the result of my Pick-A-Brick order on Christmas! The Battousai! (Japanese for "Master of drawing the sword." Got the name from the anime "Rurouni Kenshin" or "Samurai X") Maybe I should have ordered some new clip parts and joints. As you can see, my joint parts are so overused that I had to put paper under them to keep them sturdy! Don't worry; the paper is from LEGO too! Credit to Izzo for inspiration. Acie and everyone else, enjoy!

GOOD BRICK! THAT'S A F***ING NUKE! (Used only as a last resort.)

Hey Phong! I've (finally) got a new mech built (Inspired by Soren Roberts this time) Once I get pictures taken and posted I'll be sure to let you know. I still find this mech absolutly awesome! Keep on building ~ Nowhereman

Yes, I have to admit that I studied your mechs before I started with my newest one. I think that will be the reason for the similar parts. But you have to admit that it is usual to use building technics of other MOCers. Well and you were the MOCer with the great mechs.

like i said before AWSOME!!!...uhhmmm...now you are making me want to start playing armored core again (i dont think i can resist much longer) see ya later~Galactic Officer Raptor
Hey Phong. Good News! I broke my nose yesterday while walking and hads to get stitches over my left eye and my nose. I am currently using one eye since my left eye is swollen! I need rest so I wont be on MOCpages for a while. ~Alex
My bad! my comment below belongs to your 'Armored Core GX-57S Battousai'. This one is way better. I know it has only minor changes, but the variation on the foot area and the cone piece on the chest gives it the 'perfect' amount of balance. It's more rugged and has a better feel. I'm very Feng Shui orientated. =)
This one is slick as all your work! Can't say it's my favorite. I doesn't flow as well as some of your others, but still quality work. Makes me wonder just how much legos do you have? I must say I like how your work is very clean and you usually cover those lego stubs. Keep on trucking? -_- 'Zero'
Now for the actual review! *AHEM* WOOOOOAAAAAHHHHH!!!!! This thing is IMMACULATE! I AM SPEECHLESS (typing does not count) it must have taken hours to build this, and the weapons systems are beyond cool!!!! The only way I can describe this is: ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! 'Nuff said!!!!
Now for the actual review! *AHEM*
THIS THING IS IMMACULATE! IT MUST HAVE TAKEN HOURS TO BUILD! AND THE WEAPON SYYSTEMS ARE BEYOND COOL! OLNY ONE WAY TO DESCRIBE THIS! TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY PERFECT!!! 'NUFF SAID!!!
Ha ha! Go Yoko! Thanks for all the generous comments man!! Seriously! Oh I'm also gettin' one of those Revoltech things (GL in fact), though, now I'm not so sure after watching the final episode...hmm.... Anyhoo thanks for the reviews! And be sure to look out for version 2! I just got some extra $$$ so I can buy new parts! Later! -Carlo
hey, just letting you know, izzo and zizy2 are two different people. zizy specializes in advanced frames (like me, his general evo frame is nearly identical to my archangel. zizy's always been my main insperation as far as AFs go) whereas izzo specializes in awesome-to-no-end mechs. Keep on building ~ Nowhereman
Sorry I didn't get the chance to give a decent rating to your earlier version. But, well... Wow. This is beyond words, I'm still a huge fan of your white AC mech, but this blows it away. The whole design as well as the attention to detail are off the charts! I hope to see a new one from you soon that tops even this latest mech of yours. Keep on building ~ Nowhereman (PS, I made Lego19 a moderator on the FORGE group seeing as he's in the chat area so much)
Oh gosh!! this is insane man!! I took a close look at every single detail and evrything is just so right! you're amazing man... B.T.W. I like the Homing Missiles; Nice Idea... BRICK it up ;p >>> peace.. Fofo
