Even though the shops will feature Armored Core 6, the lineup will not include model kits or action figures. People can instead expect to see acrylic-based goods featuring the AC units in both normal and chibi/deformed proportions.

The list will also include a 60-page visual book. Although it will be smaller than Kadokawa’s art book, this book will still contain illustrations and descriptions of the 36 AC units that appeared in the game.

Here is the full list of merchandise in the pop up shops, with prices in Japanese yen:

  • AC part keychain – ¥400 for a random gashapon pull
  • Keyring – ¥880
  • Visual book – ¥2,200
  • T-shirt – ¥3,300
  • Baseball cap – ¥4,400
  • Acrylic stand – ¥2,200
  • Stage for acrylic stands – ¥5,500
  • Acrylic keychain – ¥770
  • Chibi AC acrylic keychain – ¥880
  • Chibi AC tin badge – ¥550
  • Briefing screen desk mat – ¥2,640
  • Hanging tapestry – ¥3,300
  • Dog tag – ¥1,650
  • Logo-printed towel – ¥2,200
  • Clear file – ¥440
  • Mini leather pouch – ¥1,320
  • Tote bag – ¥1,980
  • Ice cream spoon – ¥990
  • Drink bottle with holder – ¥990
  • Stainless mug – ¥2,860
  • Sticker sheet – ¥550
  • Drive Recorder sticker – ¥440

And here are the upcoming physical locations and times for the pop up shops to appear:

  • Aeon Mall Makuhari New City in Chiba – August 2-7, 2024
  • Aeon Mall Kyoto – September 13-17, 2024
  • Namba Marui in Osaka – October 19-27, 2024
  • Shinjuku Marui Annex in Tokyo – November 8-17, 2024

MeeToMa will also put up the items for online pre-orders on its web store, with two windows set to open from July 10, 2024, until August 31, 2024, and October 19, 2024, until November 17, 2024. However, it is highly likely that these items will only be available for shipping domestically inside Japan. Even though the web store has a Buyee widget, it still does not support international shipments for items from other notable franchises like Guilty Gear.

The new Armored Core 6 Pop Up Shops will appear to mark the first anniversary of the game’s release. Bandai Namco launched Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC simultaneously worldwide on August 25, 2023.
