It’s really late now so I’ll write my BS tomorrow.

I think it is kinda scary, I get used to see the over 3,000 yen price tag for a figma!!! (@@.

Now figma is getting more and more expensive, but their quality is not getting any better. In fact their quality is going down hill. But sadly I (and most of you) am still very happy to see my favorite characters come out as figma. (@@.

I guess I’m a masochist? XD

——Description from Manufacturer——

The First Child, Rei Ayanami: finally joining the world of figmas.

From “Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance” comes a figma of the silent heroine, Rei Ayanami.

  • Using the smooth yet poseable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes.
  • The neck has an all new figma joint that features a double joint, meaning you can create more unique poses than ever before!
  • The main body of the figma is made with a combination of hard and soft plastics, leaving the feeling of the plugsuit just as it should be.
  • The interior of the Entry Plug is also included to recreate your favorite scenes from the cockpit. Various parts in the cockpit such as the seat and control lever are also movable.
  • Three expressions are included: an expressionless face perfectly suited to Rei, a glaring face for combat scenes and the smiling face that she only showed to the openhearted.
  • The S-DAT player that played an important role in the film is also included.
  • A poseable figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
