ASCII Media Works (manufactured by WAVE) is going to release the Asuna ( アスナ ) Bikini Style 1/8 PVC figure from the light novel/anime “Sword Art Online” ( ソードアート・オンライン ). Will be released in August 2013. Around 140mm tall, 7,500 yen (taxed in). Dengekiya exclusive.
They said this Asuna figure is based on the illustration of abec (the illustrator of the SAO light novel). But I still think that she looks more like the Asuna in the anime than in then light novel.
For those of you who want to get this Asuna figure, you can order her at Dengekiya HERE before April 15, 2013 with you proxy service.
