Kirito, the gamer, the hero

Charaben Kirito: GGO Edition

Kirito – GGO Version – Real Action Heroes (RAH) 700

We all know Kirito as the main protagonist of Sword Art Online. Chosen as one of the thousand beta testers for the closed beta of Sword Art Online, the first ever VRMMORPG for the NerveGear, he became trapped in the game and worked hard to find a way to escape it. His real name is Kirigaya Kazuto (he shortened it to Kirito to use it as his gaming name). We met Kirito at age 14 (beginning of Aincred Arc) and at the time of the Phantom Bullet Arc, he is 17. Kirito is a man of few words and an absolute gaming genius. He prefers to be a ‘solo player’ (Not belonging to any guild in-game).

Also, the figurine can be posed any way you want to, and it has three facial expressions as well.

Add in the photon sword, the pistol that Kirito used as his side arm and additional hand and arm parts and you can really let your imagination go wild with setting up your display. In the RAH series, there is a Sinon figurine as well, which is super sugoi, especially for ‘fanatikal’ collectors.

Overall: An undeniable 100

Paint Job – 10
The paint job on the figurine is spot on and the colours were chosen for the fabrics as well. It makes the figurine feel real. The work on the eyes is strikingly superb. The paint job compliments the sculptor’s work nicely.

Sculpting – 10
The idea of having three expressions for this figurine is impressive. The sculpting is flawless, from the shape of the hair to the detail on the boots.

Design – 10
This figurine was designed to have a place of honour on an ‘anime shrine’. It is perfect. Everything is in perfect harmony and the artists really understood the hearts of every Sword Art Online fanatik.

This figurine gives the collector infinite possibilities, because of it’s flexibility and the expressions as well as the plasma sword and pistol.
