A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The amazing model kits celebrating the giant robots of Muv-Luv Alternative continue with an American prototype Advanced Tactical Surface Fighter, the YF-23 Black Widow II! In competition to replace the F-15 Eagle, the Black Widow was a highly advanced unit with excellent maneuverability and unique close and mid-range combat capabilities. Perfect down to the last detail, the YF-23 model kit captures the unique look of the TSF with its aerospace elements, heavy armor, flared shoulders, and unique low profile head design. The Black Widow is comprised of 200 pre-colored pieces (no painting required!) in its distinctive gray paint scheme with neon green accents as well as the iconic red hourglass shape on its torso. Of course, the unit comes with multiple weapons that can be placed in the YF-23’s hands or stowed on its back-mounted scabbards including guns and swords, and multiple points of articulation let you pose it in any dynamic battle stance! The Black Widow stands nearly 5 ½ inches tall (1/144 scale) and is the perfect addition to any Muv-Luv Alternative model kit collection.
