Bandai is going to release the Figure Tama ( FIGURE魂 ) Mari ( マリ ) 1/8 PVC figure from the anime movie “Evangelion 2.0 You can (not) Advance” ( 新劇場版エヴァンゲリオン「破」 ). Will be released in July 2009. Around 180mm tall, 4,200 yen.
I’m really looking forward to this movie! Beside they changed the name of Asuka, they also has a new character “Mari” (her full name is Makinami Mari Illustrious “真希波・マリ・イラストリアス “, no official English translation yet).
I’m not a big fan of Bandai’s figures (their gashapon and trading figures are ok). I bought a Figure Tama Mai-Otome figure and a Y!PC5 Cure Dream before and their quaility are not impressive at all. That’s why this figure is already on sale in most of online stores. (Amazon is selling her for 3,307 yen, and Rakuten is selling her for 2,865 yen already). It’s kinda sad. =P
