Shikinami Asuka Langley (Jersey Ver.) by Alter

Assuka. Yes, that extra ‘s’ was intentional. The most asstastic Assuka figure there is. There are many figures that highlight this asspect of her, but none are so well sculpted in my opinion. This pose also manages to achieve the trifecta, face, chest, ass, all in one angle, though her jacket kind of ruins that unfortunately. TL;DR: This is definitely my favourite Assuka figure, but she’s not perfect. Now enjoy the photos.

Horo by CM’s Corporation

I think I have to start by saying that I’m pleasantly surprised. I knew ahead of time this would not be a perfect Horo. Between the promoshots and the preview at Hobby Stock it was clear what I was going to receive. Then the poorly lit photos started appearing and everyone complained and cancelled their orders. But I held steady, I’d been through this a hundred times I knew what to expect, and that was not to expect much at all. I think because of this pessimism I’m able to be pleasantly surprised today.

Shigure Asa Long Hair Ver. by Kotobukiya

Let’s go back a few months, more than a few months, all the way back to August of 2009 when Shigure Asa arrived on my door step. Like last weeks review of Azaka, Asa’s presence in the wild seems lacking to almost non-existent, though having been out there longer than Azaka she has received some attention. To help make up for this deficit of Asa on the Internets today I choose you Asa.

Kokuto Azaka by Kotobukiya

Delayed by one day, but it’s better late than never. I’d procrastinated and when it came time to write up the review, I was sick and went to bed. Still sick, but awake (barely).

I have a few figures I could review such as Good Smile Company’s World is Mine Miku, or Orchid Seed’s Seena Kanon, but those are over done right now and I don’t feel like beating a dead horse. I’d rather the horse decompose for a while, cast revive, and have a zombie horse! Zombies are cool, they’re making a come back.

So in the meantime I’ve decided that Movic’s Kokuto Azaka was in need of a scrutineering.

Ayanami Rei (2008) by Alter

It feels like it’s been a year since I wrote a post, as if it must be 2010 already, but surely I jest, right? Is it really the end of another decade? Well damn, so it is. Happy New Year to everyone then! Another year another batch of figures to collect! (Or should I have made my new years resolution “stop ‘wasting’ money on anime figures”?)

Today we’ll be discussing an older figure, a figure from the year two thousand and eight, ah, I remember it like it was yesterday. Actually that’s a lie, I have no idea what happened in two thousand and eight. Anyway, Ayanami Rei here is a slightly older figure that has been previously reviewed by many other people already, but that’s ok, I’m going to do one anyway!

Shikinami Asuka Langley Plugsuit Ver (2009) by Kotobukiya

The final installment of my 3 part series I like to call Kotobukiya’s Rebuild of Evangelion series. Today we have Shikinami Asuka Langley up for review, a re-imagined version of Soryu Asuka Langley with less bitch and more dere. By no means the perfect mix of tsun and dere like Horo, but a very good attempt, I enjoyed her in Evangelion 2.0.

I previously reviewed both Ayanami Rei and Katsuragi Misato as well.
