Xenoblade Chronicles X - Offical Artwork 3

Xenoblade Chronicles X has been out for a decent amount of time. Some of you probably had a lot of fun playing around with the ‘Skells’ or giant robots that made exploring Mira much easier. Kotobukiya has a little treat for you Skell maniacs out there. They bring us a 1/48 scale model kit of one of the Skells, particularly the one with the Formula Zero frame. This kit includes the decals for the model, a sword, machine gun, grenade, beamsaber and a shield. It is currently up for about $70. Like in-game, these things can transform into vehicles for added mobility.

    Anyone know whether or not this is pre-painted?

      It’s a snap assembly kit being produced by Kotobukiya, so the parts will be molded in color, and will likely be broken along the major color separations. I can’t find an unpainted promo shot, but I’ve built a bunch of their kits and they look OK right out of the box, but paint and decals will make it look way better. It’s not pre-assembled and will not look like the promos without a bit of work.

      Thanks a lot for the info! That’s right on the border of the amount of work I’m willing to put into something to look good on my shelf, so I will have to consider.

      Also, I have seen a few unpainted pictures:

      That’s just the prototype. The production kits are molded in color and Koto usually shows what the kit looks like out of the box without paint, but not always.

      Thanks again for the replies. I bought it from AmiAmi, so it looks like I’ll have a little project in the summer 🙂

      I ordered mine from Hobbylink Japan. I’ll be lucky if i can find the time to get to it before next Christmas 🙁
