    1. X, Gundam...Gundam X? Also, insert obvious reference to G Gundam and Mark Gatha. XD

  3. Velguarder's got competition, it seems. I don't like the armor at all though, it just lazily snaps on over X's regular body instead of replacing it like his other armors do. For $120 this thing's getting to be really underwhelming. I'll probably grab it if it goes on clearance, but that's about it.

    1. i think it's made on purpose. they decided to go for armor instead of replacement piece.

  4. The pictures are beautiful. The price undoubtedly won't be.

  5. X's armor looks suspiciously like the Wing Zero...

  8. Sweet merciful rice crackers! That's actually a pretty badass way to interpret Rush for the X series. Sigma's pooch does not compare anymore. :O

  10. The armor design looks sick. The colors... not so much.

    1. It's a model kit; it's supposed to be painted.
      If you don't like the colors: paint it.

      Delete
    2. I know, it's just, that those are the vanilla colors, the original color scheme.

  11. Wow.....this is probably one of the most exciting things to happen in the X world in years...

    ReplyDelete
  12. The fact that the set likely costs close to $300 pains me. Because I need this, so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  13. What the--?! That... No...?

    I mean, X looks freaking awesome, but the "Rush" thing...? A bit too "generic robot" for my taste.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The armor set look suspiciously like the Angel Armor Copy X uses in Megaman Zero 1. So that's what it looks like if translated to the older X series design. COOL!

    One more thing... so that's what the clear parts are for. They actually look better when an armor part is attached to it, compared to the plain one.

    1. exactly what i was thinking. when seing the base X, i found the transparence thing a bit off, but now it all make sense.

  16. Do you guys think Bandai would do better with Mega Man than Capcom?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Undoubtedly. Bandai knows how to build franchises.
      Capcom knows how to bury them.

  17. Rush Adapter for Mega Man and Treble Boost for Bass when?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I will call Rush -- Rush X but he doesn't existed in the game. How could that be ? Nonsense.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. they decided to make it because a Rush X is cool. cool is the explanation for theses kind of things. a very good explanation.

      Delete
    2. I prefer if they were more creative with the name like calling It Hurry or Urgent or something, rather than just Rush X, Rush X sounds lazy.

      Plus the fusion names would be hilarious Hurry X Jet(armor) Urgent Power Punch(attack).

      Delete
    3. Rush is a reference to a form of progressive rock, based on a quick search. Not a play on speed. But I do like the idea of a name Urgent. That is kinda catchy.

      Delete
  19. That Rush reminds me of the red dragon Megazord from whatever power rangers/ sentai series that was from. But with dog legs.

  20. I really want one of these.
    I just want to know to things:
    Is this a Model or a Figure?
    Is this the only product in the "Giga Armor Series" line!?"

    I'm starting to get the impression this isn't a model, but a figure.

    I also do not think that thing is Rush. It might be a wolf. I wouldn't call it Rush X. That's just silly, until otherwise corrected.

    ReplyDelete
  21. It looks like Bandai has revealed official names for the components of the bundle.

    The ride chaser is called "ADU-R381B - Cavalerie", new Rush is called "Rush Jagt" and the armor is named "GBF Armor".

    It have the feeling that the page gives some background to the stuff included but i cannot confirm as it is in japanese.

  22. Looks like preorders are up on some sites.

  23. Cool concept, don't really see the Mega Man X style in that Rush design.. looks like it belongs to something else. But still cool.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I doubt this is a model kit. Firstly, it is under Chogokin meaning there will be diecast. I am not saying Chogokin can't be model kits though.

    Secondly, the original Mega Armor series figures were barely model kits. You just had to remove the armor parts from the tree and attach them to thr base body which came assembled. Only exception is the Ultimate Armor.

    Finally, given the price it would be ridiculous to be a model kit.

    1. That sucks :( I was really looking forward to the customization possibilities.
      C'est la vie.
      Still gonna get one though. Just cause it looks boss.

  25. Interesting, the word Jagt means Hunt or Pursuit. I have no idea what G.B.F stands for, any ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Eh. Armor design looks too Gundam. Rush is ok.

    ReplyDelete
  27. its a reploid!? no! its a gundam!!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOL I don't know about you guys, but to me, all this looks VERY anime (And I don't mean X's face!)...
    I love it!
