Kotobukiya Teasing "Polarized" Mega Man X Model Kit Variant
A limited edition variant of Kotobukiya's 1/12 scale Mega Man X model kit is in the works, the manufacturer teased.
The kit will be a "polarized" plated version that changes from purple to blue to green in the light. It's intended to look like the effect X's body undergoes when he charges his X-Buster. It will even include a uniquely colored Buster Shot effect part. Neat!
Kotobukiya also report that they're working on a so-called "undergate" to protect this kit's shiny armor from unsightly marks. Although they didn't specify how it will work, Kotobukiya say that the "undergate" will help hobbyists to cleanly remove parts from the grid. They assure even the most amateur builders will be satisfied with the result.
No word yet when we can expect to see the polarized variant, though more details are reportedly coming soon. For now, you can investigate the above test shot images the kit and the undergate. Thanks for the tip, Hayden!
