Figma News Fridays: 7/10/15

Welcome to Figma News Fridays! This week was slow once again. In fact, the only news we have is SAO related, so let’s get started!


Kirito GGO ver. Release Date Announced
GGO Kirito preview page
July 17th!


ALO Asuna Preorders Begin

From the anime series ‘Sword Art Online II’ comes a figma of the heroine known as the ‘Berserk Healer’, Asuna as her ALfheim Online avatar!

Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes.
A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
Her rapier is included as her weapon of choice, as well as the legendary weapon, the Crest of Yggdrasil.
The included wing parts are not only articulated, but can also be attached and removed with ease.
She comes with a gentle smiling expression, a shouting expression for combat and a confident grinning expression.
An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
Asuna retails for 5556 yen and is scheduled for a December release.

Preorders of figma Asuna: ALO ver. from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a Smiling Expression as a bonus!

This product will be available at the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP. Orders can be placed between the 9th July 2015 (Thu) from 12:00JST and the 5th August 2015 (Wed) at 21:00JST.

Ah, December. I wonder if I’ll have a break from preorders from a month or two since I currently have no orders for October or November.

I never did watch the second season of SAO, and I don’t really plan to, but I do still like the character designs, so I’ll most likely keep adding variations of my favorite characters to my collection. It’s funny how I hated the elf ears in the anime, but on this figma, they’re super cute! Especially when combined with that determined face.
The bonus expression is also cute, but not 2000+ yen cute, so I’ll be preordering Asuna, but from somewhere else.

That wraps up this week! Will your collection be seeing a Kirito or Asuna any time soon?
