Kotobukiya's model kits celebrating the giant robots of Muv-Luv Alternative continue with two new upcoming fall releases. These include:
Muv-Luv Alternative 1/144 YF-23 Black Widow II Plastic Model Kit
In competition to replace the F-15 Eagle, the Black Widow was a highly advanced unit with excellent maneuverability and unique close and mid-range combat capabilities. Perfect down to the last detail, the YF-23 model kit captures the unique look of the TSF with its aerospace elements, heavy armor, flared shoulders, and unique low profile head design. The Black Widow is comprised of 200 pre-colored pieces (no painting required) in its distinctive gray paint scheme with neon green accents as well as the iconic red hourglass shape on its torso. Of course, the unit comes with multiple weapons that can be placed in the YF-23’s hands or stowed on its back-mounted scabbards including guns and swords, and multiple points of articulation let you pose it in any dynamic battle stance. The Black Widow stands nearly 5 ½ inches tall (1/144 scale).
Available September 2013.
Muv-Luv Alternative ~ 1/144 Shiranui Storm & Strike Vanguard Ver.
Up next in the Muv-Luv Alternative model kit lineup is an elite Shiranui variant we’ve seen before in the Fine Scale Model kit that’s now joining its 1/144 brethren, the Shiranui Storm & Strike Vanguard Ver. This model kit gives the TSF a new look and new equipment while retaining the classic robot’s unique modular armor, aerodynamic shape, and distinctive dual-horned head. The Storm & Strike Vanguard version features an evocative violet and purple color scheme and the incorporation of some parts molded in clear plastic, really giving it a whole new look that’ll stand out from your other Shiranui robots. Even better, it comes with great interchangeable armor and weapons like a huge shield, swords, and guns! Comprised of over 200 pre-colored pieces the Storm & Strike Vanguard version stands nearly 5 ½ inches tall (1/144 scale) and offers you plenty of posing and display options with excellent articulation.
Available October 2013.
