Kotobukiya "Rising Fire" X Model Kit Now Available for Pre-Order

Revealed earlier this year at Wonder Festival , the color variant of the regular X model kit based on Mega Man X4 Rising Fire special weapon is finally available for pre-order. Check all the detail and official product images below!

"With over 35 million copies sold, the Mega Man franchise is a beloved video game franchise loved by fans of all generations throughout the world. Beloved by fans for their fast-paced action and deep storytelling, the Mega Man X series became a core brand within the franchise.
Now, from Mega Man X4 of that series, “X Rising Fire Version” will be joining Kotobukiya’s plastic model lineup.
X comes painted in a fiery red base color for after he has acquired Rising Fire. Newly designed showy effect parts are also included to recreate dynamic attack scenes!
Effect parts to recreate Zero’s special skill, “Ryuenjin,” that he obtained by defeating the formidable Magma Dragoon are also included within this model kit as an added bonus!"

The model kit is expected to be released in November for 7,040 yen (roughly $64 - 57€). As is customary by purchasing via Kotobukiya's Online Store, you can get a B2 background stage sheet.

This model kit will be sold everywhere; it's not exclusive to Kotobukiya's Online Store like the X Charge Shot version, Max Armor Hyper Chip Version or the soon-to-be released Zero Nightmare Version (end of this month). We will update this article when other places start taking pre-orders and of course when the Mizuno artwork for the box is revealed!

  1. Still no color pics of Forth Armor? :(

    Still undecided on this one. I might. But what Koto REALLY needs to do is release an better hair piece for Zero. At minimum.

  2. By the way, those who were saying you dislike the X3 Max Armor buster appearence,
    I made this if anyone wants one:

    It might need a touch of sanding to fit perfectly in the recess, but it works.

  3. Koto US pre-order is up too. $69.99
