It seems like Max Factory aren’t really care about Evangelion. All the other manufacturers were rushing their EVA figures out one by one around April to May, trying to catch the trends when the Evangelion 2.22 BD/DVD was released at the end of May. But all did Max Factory do was announced the figma Mari in May and holding this Asuka until now. Well, since figma has a really large fan base, I guess they really don’t care about not selling her well at all. =P

——Description from Manufacturer——

The Second Child – Asuka Langley Shikinami, the figma!

From “Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance” comes a figma of EVA 2’s determined pilot, Asuka Langley Shikinami!

  • 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 even more unique poses than before!
  • The main body of the figma is made with a combination of hard and soft plastics, leaving the feeling of the test-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: a smiling face, a determined shouting face and the embarrassed face she gave when she first wore the test plugsuit.
  • A variety of optional parts are included, such as the puppet and cell phone from the movie, as well as replaceable parts for when she sits in the Entry Plug.
  • A poseable figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
