Figure Maniacs Otome Kumi 35 (Oct 13, 09 released)
You might not know what is “ASCII Media Works (ASCIIMW)” but I’m sure you know what Dengeki is. Yes, ASCIIMW is the publisher of Dengeki Hobby. So Dengeki is actually ASCIIMW, and “Figure Maniacs Otome Kumi” ( フィギュアマニアックス乙女組 ) is a sister magazine of Dengeki hobby which focus in girl figures. This Ayanami Rei GK is Figure Maniacs Otome Kumi 35 mail-in order exclusive which I’m sure 99.999% of us who are not live in Japan hate the most.
This kit is made of color resin. This kind of GK is getting popular now. It’s just like the Gundam plastic model which cast in different color for different parts. It is very good for those people who are able to afford a nice GK but don’t have good painting skill. But of coz it is better if you have the skill to paint your own kit. =]
