For those who don't know: Kotobukiya has made multiple build-it-yourself model kits of the Mega Man universe in the past: Mega Man, Roll, Proto Man and Mega Man Zero. It is still possible to find all of them floating around on the depts of the internetz if you really want them really hard. Most of them have been re-released, so, they shouldn't be that hard to find.
Now, it's speculation time!
The fact that they are releasing X and not classic (or any other) Mega Man, strongly suggests that we might see a new entry in the X series this year. CAPCOM has already confirmed that they have started discussing a new game, but has not published any more information about their timelines, which series, etc. Selling an X model kit right about the same time as the game comes out would be the best way to maximize sells. We can only hope!
