It was a few months ago that the figma version of Sword Art Online's Asuna was announced along side series hero Kirito. Kirito just went up for pre-order for the first time only days ago and this same month we're getting our first look at the Asuna prototype. The figure is looking sharp with lots of details in the armor and hair, but also appears to have the hair in segments which might imply some movability like we often see in female characters with long hair. Her sword and sheath can be seen at her side. I'm hoping that when it comes to accessories to make up for only having one sword she'll come with some food and her necklace. She'll be released in June following Kirito.
Cryska Barchenowa from Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse was also announced through stand-in art back in July and is being seen here for the first time as well. Her body suit allows for a lot of movement though at the same time the attempt to hide the hip joints does limit forward leg movement. For accessories we're only seeing a single gun which seems to be on par for the Muv-Luv series. One thing that kinda catches me off guard is that these Muv-Luv figma are some pretty tall figures. Cryska here will be 160 mm or about 6.3 inches tall which makes her taller than most male figma! Expect her to be released in May.
