Although Kotobukiya's brand-new, 1/12 scale Mega Man X model kit isn't due until August-September, it couldn't hurt to place a pre-order now. Here's a few places you should check out:
- Big Bad ToyStore
- Hobby Link Japan
- Koto US (official Kotobukiya US store)
- Ami Ami (Regular Edition | Ami Ami-Exclusive w/acrylic stand)
- Play Asia
- USA Gundam Store
- eKnight Media
So that's where we're at right now. More retailers will carry X as time marches on, naturally. But if you ask me, you can't go wrong with Big Bad ToyStore and Ami Ami. Both are great.
Also, it does indeed look like international retailers won't be offering Kotobukiya Japan's exclusive background. I was hopeful that at least Koto US would offer it... but alas. We're out of luck for now. Worse comes to worse, you could always make your own?
Would have preferred to use Big Bad or Ami Ami... but that stupid background just has me by the balls, so I placed the order in kotobukiya japan and I had to bother a friend to receive it for me and send it over. Being a fan can be unnecessarily inconvenient sometimes lol.ReplyDelete
That looks cool, definitely getting one. Do you know the status of the Max Armor X model kit that Kotobukiya are doing Protodude?ReplyDelete
