 “Come on, let’s have a duel right now.”

From the popular anime ‘Sword Art Online II’ comes a figma of Kirito in his avatar from Gun Gale Online!

 

Pros

  • A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
  • He comes with three expressions: a confident smile, a shouting face for combat and a flustered expression.
  • His photon sword and handgun are both included, along with an alternate head part to display his hair more dynamically.
  • Effect parts that can be attached to his photon sword are also included.
  • An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.

 

Cons

  • So much has improved from the original Kirito figure I don’t really have complaints

This marks the 4th Sword Art online figure for my collection. By far this has to be one of my favorite released. Notwithstanding the improvements to the wrists and hands, the improvements to the sword was by far my favorite. It makes me hope that they release a version 2 for the original Kirito and make the blades changeable so the effect pieces are lighter.

The figure comes with 2 blades for the Photon Blade, one normal blade and the other for the effect piece. The effect piece is a thin piece of plastic that plugs into the effect blade. There isn’t much in the way that deters the visual image this creates when the 2 pieces are together. It pulls nicely and is appealing to the eye. Unlike the visual effects for the original Kirito figure, which could cause damage to the swords, stress marks and bending.

Kirito in his GGO avatar comes with several face options to swap out as well as a different sculpt for the bangs. This allows for more action poses, and helps create the effect of a character in motion. Something that can lack, even in poseable figures. His long hair and coat are on ball hinges, so you can flair them out. Like Sinon, he comes with an extra wrist peg, in case you can’t get one out of a hand, or lose it. He also has a gun fire attachment for his pistol. The pistol sits nicely in its holster, it doesn’t hinder posing the figure. The Photon Blade has a hole on Kirito’s belt so that it can sit at his side. The hole, is a bit flimsy, but it’s not so bad that it would rank being a con.

If you haven’t watched the series, then what are you waiting for? Time to get with the program people. This is by far my favorite figure of the line to date. I am happy to say it is also one of the few figma figures that has any issues. I would recommend anyone get this figure, whether you like the series or not. If you haven’t been introduced to a figma figure yet, this is a great one to pick up first. It will definitely impress you.
