Kotobukiya will release in August, 2015, a 1/72 plastic injection kit of the "Matsukaze mdl.2 Base Defense Type" mech hybrid tank.
From HobbyLink Japan...

"From the Armored Core V Variable Infinity series, the anticipated tank-bodied Matsukaze mdl.2 is here [August, 2015]! With a total 22cm-long body full of detail, this kit is sure to please any Armored Core fan.

Kit features:

"The new sculpt of the "SAKAKI mdl.1" head piece and the "LeT-A-D09" base stay true to the in-game high-density look.

* Made from soft plastic material, the track parts are both realistic and easy to assemble, and are able to be glued or painted like most plastic materials.

*Includes two autocannon "AM/ACA-127" and gimmicks to collapse the barrel parts.

* Replicate the configuration for the shoulder unit by swapping included parts.

* Includes specialized attatchments for connection of the Aubade Weapon.

* Recombine each of the head, core, arms, and base sections like in the game, and enjoy a variety of customizations when combining the Matsukaze with other ACT V.I. series parts.

* Use the included bonus parts to attach core parts from kits outside of the Armored Core V Variable Infinity series."

$126 is a bit steep, even for a 1/72 mech/tank

I just got a reply from HobbyLink Japan. The price and scale of this kit is correct because it's 220mm long when completed and is "a massive kit," says HLJ.

I guess 220mm sounds bigger than 8-1/2 inches?
