Today Japanese manufacturer Kotobukiya announced that it’s bringing back two of its plastic model kits dedicated to the popular Muv-Luv visual novel franchise.
Both models portraying two of the franchise’s awesome TSF mecha were originally released several years ago and have been out of print and fairly difficult to find for a long time.
The first is the F-22 Raptor piloted by Alfred Walken in Muv-Luv Alternative. Its color has been improved compared to the old version and it’s priced at 6,380 yen, which translates approximately into $58.
It will release in December 2021.
The second model is the F-15E Strike Eagle piloted by Yuya Bridges, Stella Bremer, and Valerio Giacosa in Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse.
It comes in 1/144 scale and it’s priced at 3,300 yen, which translates approximately into $30. It will release in December 2021 as well.
You can see what both models look like below. Both models can already be pre-ordered.
If you’re interested in the Muv-Luv franchise in general, during recent events we saw the reveal of the official title of Muv-Luv Resonative (which is the continuation of The Day After), the announcement of Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse, and new gameplay and details for Project Mikhail.
A few months ago, we also heard the much-awaited announcement that Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien (also known as Rumbling Hearts) will finally be released in English.
