Ride Chaser Revealed for Giga Armor Rockman X


It's not immediately clear if it will ship with Giga Armor Rockman X, but Bandai are indeed producing a Ride Chaser to complement the model kit.




It looks pretty spiffy, no? Rockman Unity implies there's more to this bike than meets the eye. If you look at it closely, you just might be able to see the secret.

Do you see it? Maybe these two images from the distant past will nudge you in the right direction. The secret should be revealed later this weekend...

  2. And with this I'm sold! I still keep my opinion that we're getting way too many X figures way too fast, but I'd be crazy to say no to an in scale Ride Chaser toy in 2017.

    1. Maybe it'll encourage TruForce to come out with theirs, which also looks really cool.

    2. Truforce has no factory or designers right now, so they have to take care of that first.

  3. This ain't no Gundam or Transformers...
    But if that is what I think it is... it would be EXtremelly cool.

  4. Awesome, guess they beat TruForce in making the land speeder.

  5. Dude! I called it! Check the last article.

    This is kickass, and what a step up from the Ultimate Armor surfboard thing. It looks like the Ride Chaser is it's own figure, as in it has a bipedal form like a Transformer. Then again, it could also be an original armor for X, which would be rad as fuck.

  6. Looks like it transforms into Ultimate Armor X from MMX4 to me, judging from the color scheme and the flair.

  7. Is 2017 the Year of X?

  8. Oh ho! Now I'm even more intrigued! Assuming this is a transforming machine, or even a holster for armor parts, this thing looks awesome.

    I can't wait to start customizing and playing with these things :p

  9. If you take away all of the white armor bits, it almost looks like an X version of Rush hiding under there, waiting to turn into dog form. Even the front bits holding armor look like legs folded up. Could it be...?

  10. Wait a minute... Is this suggesting that if they release Zero then maybe he will get a redesigned Ultimate Armor like the one that was cut from X4?
    Oh my god...

  13. I wonder if all the Ride Chasers in this range will double as armours, or if there's a single Ride Chaser frame that multiple armour sets can be snapped onto. Either way, SOLD.

  14. So it's a 2-pack AND a Chogokin? Dang, they ain't playing around with this.

    1. Who said it was a Chogokin, or a 2 pack?
      Every report thus far has stated it's a model kit...
      If anything, they are capitalizing the FigureRise stuff they are doing with DBZ. Makes sense, actually.

    2. tamashii.jp says so.

  15. By the way, I found these details about Giga armor X

    - 12,900 yen (between 120 and 130 usd I think)
    - it will come bundled with the ride chaser, it seems you cannot buy them separately.
    - its size is 140mm so it is bigger than d-arts Zero.
    -it is part of the Chogokin series.

    There is also a better image of how the buster looks, but still no image of the ride chaser armor.
