The All Japan Model & Hobby Show 2022 is being hosted at the Tokyo Big Sight venue un the Japanese capital, and Kotobukiya came armed with goodies for Muv-Luv Alternative fans.
First of all, we get to see the first unpainted prototype of the Type-77 Gekishin plastic model kit, which was previously shown only in illustration form.
On top of that, the company showcased the first painted prototype of the Type-97 Fubuki. Both of these are entirely new models created to celebrate the Muv-Luv Alternative anime.
Neither has a release window for the moment.
We also get plenty more plastic model kit reprints from the old series, all of which are going up for pre-orders.
