Sword Art Online SAO Kirito キリト Figma





































Sword Art Online in short SAO was originated from light novel and took the anime world by surprise with its beautiful storyline while players were trapped in Massively multiplayer online role-playing game(MMORPG). I guess finding romance and genuine love in virtual world had fascinated many young ones. The sudden and incredible popularity created a sharp demand for its merchandises while most toy makers reacted rather slowly.

Kirito キリト is main protagonist in the anime, who entered the game as a beta tester and later established himself as the Black Swordsman 黒の剣士 , one of the few who managed to additional skills like double wield swords in the game. He was very much of a lone ranger until he met other female characters along the way and particularly Asuna アスナ.

Figma had continued to improve in their quality and accessories since my first Figma, Kanu Unchou from Ikkitousen. No longer so frail with easily stressed joint. An amazing and stunning Kirito Figma which stands around 12cm with multiple ball joints and flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability. Value added gimmicks like changeable faces for three expressions including his standard expression, a shouting expression for combat and a lazy expression. Also four extra pairs of changeable hands to suit different styles. 

Kirito's favorite sword, 'Elucidator' as well as the sword made by Lisbeth, 'Dark Repulser' are both included, each with effect parts. Both swords can also be kept in the sheaths, on his back for non-combat scenes. An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken. Two problems when I was handling this Figma, there was some difficulty sliding the swords to the sword gripping changeable hands and the sword effect parts are kind of heavy, as such increased the difficulty of posing the figure on stand.

ps: Thank you Stanley for giving me the honor of opening the toy and reviewing it : )

the few figures i have seen here by Figma, achieve a great quality in finishing and detail, but the price is a tad higher than what i will be willing to pay =/... i think this figure is really nice but rather short of accessories, i guess this character doesn’t need too much anyway... on the other hand, your pictures look more pro bro, congrats !!!... =)

Apologises for the late reply... Having to do OT @ work...

>> Stanley Lim
Thanx again for providing me the figure for review. It's a popular anime hence there are ample of info avail online.

>> deSMOnd
Indeed, the effect parts make cool features and posable figurines are heading these direction...

>> chrismandesign
Figma sure has reached a high standard in figure design and IMHO slightly ahead of most leading toy makers in terms of likeness, posability as well as pricing. A good method is too buy the Figma selectively for those you really like rather than collect'em all... Thx for the compliment of the photos pal... I skipped water marking my pics these days to speed things up ^_^

>> LEon
Yeah bro ... Now I envy Stanley more for having these awesome Figmas...

>> Gains Royce
Thank you for visiting my humble blog... Toys and cosplay are inseparable to anime... Cheers : )

I have to say that I like this with the added color motion you can add to the swords. I loved the last series of shots showing both characters.
