Japanese manufacturer Kotobukiya has been reprinting its plastic model kits dedicated to the Muv-Luv series for a while, and apparently, they have decided to go all-out.
Recently, they made five more available for pre-order. The Type-00R Takemikazuchi Ver.1.5 from Muv-Luv Alternative, the XFJ-01a Shiranui Second Phase 2 Ver.1.5, and the F-22A Raptor Infinities Version from Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse will cost 6,490 yen (which translates approximately to $55). They will release in September 2022 for the Takemikazuchi and August for the other two.
Slightly cheaper are the 1/144 Type-00R Takemikazuchi Imperial Royal Guard 16th Batallion Commander Version from Muv-Luv Unlimited: The Day After and the F-15 ACTV Active Eagle from Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse. They will cost 4,400 yen (approximately $37) and will be released respectively in September and August.
The reprint of the Takemikazuchi Ver.1.5 is remarkable since it’s the second time in a year.
If you’re interested in the Muv-Luv series in general, you should definitely read our recent interview with production manager Sho Hamanaga and brand producer Kazutoshi “Tororo” Matsumura, in which they talked about the plans for the franchise.
During the latest event, we saw new trailers for the new games Muv-Luv Integrate and Muv-Luv Resonative and a look at updates for Project Mikhail: A Muv-Luv War Story, new images for Muv-Luv Resonative, and the reveal of Duty Lost Arcadia.
