Comparison with Deluxe Kotobuyaki kit
Takemikazuchi is the 3 generation Surface Tactical Fighter manned for royal guard in Japan. Customized for main Heroine Yui Takamura aka Princess Yui. Released by Volks under A3 line as a limited figure. Slightly smaller that Kotobukiya premium model kit, the figure stands roughly 17cm. Good size for display as its bigger than the Revoltech series. In short, this is an in between of the model kit and Revoltech. Definitely more playable that the model kit and looks sleeker the kit in comparison.
The sculpt is sharp and paint by Volks are neat with that slightly gloss finished. In terms of articulations, it loses to Revoltech but wins with good stability, thanx to the A-Lock joints. So good it produces a clicking sound whenever I moves the joints. I don't really see these range of figures locally. My first sighting was back then when I visit Volks store at Akihabara and a few years later when Volks exhibited their stuffs at AFA. Some general Muv-Luv figures can be obtained online fairly priced from Mandarake or AmiAmi.
