Azone bring wings and all for Accel World's Kuroyukihime

There's no doubt why figure makers are cashing in on the avatar of Kuroyukihime from Accel World. ...okay, well, probably because she's the heroine of the title but it certainly also has to be because of how beautfiul her ava...

Here's what Good Smile has announced for their booth
by Brian Szabelski

As some of you remember, Good Smile Company will be attending their first U.S. event when they show up at New York Comic Con starting Thursday. So what's Good Smile officially announced they're bringing? The list goes as follows: Nendoroid Gakupo Kamui, Luka Megurine Tony ver., Nendoroid Petit Vocaloid Series #01, Nendoroid Kaito, Nendoroid Rin Kagamine, Nendoroid Hatsune Miku, figma Black Rock Shooter TV Animation ver., Nendoroid Kuroyukihime, the Linkin Park Nendoroid Petit set, Saber and her Motored Cuirassier, the Nendoroid Petit Racing Miku set, and both the Moekana and Moekana booster sets.

All in all, it's a line-up perhaps geared more toward the U.S. audience who isn't familiar with Good Smile. Probably expected since this is their first official U.S. event ... but there could always be some surprises when we visit the booth. There could always be some interesting surprises ...

Aki no Saiten 2012: 1/1 Nerve Gear, Neurolinker, and more photo
Aki no Saiten 2012: 1/1 Nerve Gear, Neurolinker, and more
by Emily Smalara

The Accel World and Sword Art Online goodies keep coming out of Aki no Saiten with some fantastic pieces that will suit all your cosplay needs! Whether you're ready for the VR experience or want a little augmented reality thrown in, you're covered with some great looking 1/1-scale versions of the aforementioned series' Neurolinker and Nerve Gear. I'm sure many of us are waiting for their inevitable working versions, but hopefully these will suit in the meantime!

We've also got a look at Chara-Ani's upcoming minis, featuring SAO's Kirito and Asuna, along with a host of Accel World characters ranging from Kuroyukihime to Haruyuki's pig-form to a number of Brain Burst avatars as well. Of course that's not all, as it looks like nearly all of the series' Kings are shown off, from Yellow Radio to Green Grandee and Purple Thorn. There's also another look at the truly staggeringly huge Red King in all her armored glory.

Finally, yet another Kuroyukihime looks to be arriving soon, with Sega's prize figures showing off a rather surprisingly casual version of the Black King. Relaxing in a simple dress with a mysterious mask in hand, she's rather different from the costumed Kuroyukihime we've seen until now but still quite attractive! In any case, it's a good time to be a fan of Reki Kawahara's works, with a load of upcoming, great-looking collectibles on the horizon!
