Xenoblade Chronicles X Skell Model

Xenoblade Chronicles X may have capped it off last week with a nice showing of a direct. The Xenoblade Chronicles X Japanese website throws in a bonus with the idea of real life Skell model kits to build on your own.  The Skell model kits are being stocked by Kotobukiya which is a well-known mech figures manufacturer in Japan. These Skell models are obviously inspired by the mechs known as Skells in Xenoblade Chronicles X. It’s fairly familiar to the idea of the Gundam toys that you build yourself.

Skell Model Normal

There’s no release date yet for these bad boys. Considering the lack of merchandise relating to Xenoblade at all in the past, are any of you planning on doing some importing to collect and/or build these models? Sound off in the comments about your thoughts in regards to these complex toys. Maybe you can build the models while you wait for the western release of Xenoblade Chronicles X.

About Louis Polite

Louis is a youthful but old-school gamer from New Jersey who is partially of Japanese descent and he's totally frilly! He's been gaming for practically as long as he's been alive with a early-on fascination for Kid Icarus, with his other favorite franchises being Klonoa, the Tales series, Sonic The Hedgehog, Final Fantasy, Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden. He's a total hipster for Nintendo as well appreciating cult classics like Earthbound and Eternal Darkness. His favorite genre is JRPGs, which is an obvious inspiration why he joined the campaign of Operation Rainfall at it's launch. He's a gamer who demands quality and charm out of his games because if he doesn't get it he will let it be known.

    ABSOLUTELY I WILL BE IMPORTING THESE! Love the Skell designs and being able to have them in real life as well as in XCX seals the deal. Would be fun to mix and match parts from various kits and make your own Skell as well. For the avid model builder, getting out the ol’ supplies and painting these would be a trip too.

    Oh yea most likely.

    I need details!
    Size? Quality?
    Is it closer to an HG or an MG?
    Anyway, I’ll be watching Hobby Link Japan, and hopefully Hobby Town USA and my local JP merchandise stores can get some of these.

    Really happy for everyone who wants one. Pins and keychain are more my speed.
