First revealed back in February, Kotobukiya brings us several brand-new images of their upcoming Mega Man X model kit – in color! He's looking mighty fine, folks.
The official Kotobukiya Twitter account writes:
"X finally joins our lineup as a plastic model kit in honor of the first Mega Man X game’s 25th anniversary! The character’s proportions, based on the character’s appearance in Mega Man X4, are faithfully recreated and allows users to recreate a variety of scenes from the games."
X will retail for 6,000 yen (about $53 US) and is expected to ship later this August through the usual channels (AmiAmi, Big Bad Toystore, etc.). Fans who order the kit directly from Kotobukiya will have the option to receive a limited edition background sheet that's not available anywhere else. It looks something like this:
It's funny; the kit itself is based on X4 yet the background is from X6. Alrighty then.
Anyway, we'll have a follow-up post with various pre-order links in due time. August can't come soon enough!
