After defeating fan-favorite Maverick Magma Dragoon in Mega Man X4, X is granted the Rising Fire ability. It turns his armor to red and grey; a palette perfectly captured in this kit. Aside from making X dress like his best friend, this kit also comes with several fire effects. These include flaming fists, a Rising Fire piece, and a Ryuenjin blade to add to your Z-Saber. As usual, he also comes with an assortment of facial expressions and hands to fit any pose you're going for.
