News: Kotobukiya announced Sword Art Online - Asuna Aincrad Ani*Statue

Saw announcement of this figure posted on Kotobukiya's facebook page and thought of sharing it here too. Being a fan of Sword Art Online (SAO), I am really excited that Kotobukiya is making a statue of Asuna. And seriously this so far one of the best Asuna figure I have seen based on the picture. Check them out below!

"A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The next beautiful Ani*Statue from Kotobukiya comes from Sword Art Online, a Japanese light novel series by Reki Kawahara with illustrations by Abec that's been adapted into manga, anime, and a video game. First up is the main protagonists of the game Sword Art Online, Asuna Aincrad! A member (and sub-leader) of the Blood Oath clan, Asuna's in-game avatar appears here in a stunning display as she seems to float in mid-air above a unique base with broken column and gold rings. The girl wears her clan's white and red "armor", a beautiful outfit highlighted by its blood red skirt, white top with long trailing coat, and tiny red crosses decorating the ensemble. In her right hand Asuna wield her iconic sword, though her smiling face reassures you that there's no danger she can't handle. The girl's dynamic pose and outfit are sure to be a hit with fans of the series as well as collectors of beautiful Ani*Statues! Sculpted by Hirotoshi Nakanura, Asuna is almost  8 ½ inches tall floating above her display base." - From Kotobukiya's Facebook

According to source this Asuna statue will be availabe in Jun 2013. It is a must get for me as a SAO fan. So fellow SAO fans, be quick to get it if you are interested, for some reason I feel this figure will be selling fast!
