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.

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.

Katsuragi Misato (2008) by Kotobukiya

Today we have Katsuragi Misato from Kotobukiya’s Rebuild of Evangelion series of figures. Previously I reviewed their Ayanami Rei and Friday I will review their Shikinami Asuka Langley. Misato stands out from Asuka and Rei because she has far far less figures made in her image. In the past 14 years since the series’ debut Rei and Asuka have accumulated over 287 figures between them (not including garage kits!), Misato only 16, and of course not all of those 16 are well produced. Kotobukiya’s thankfully is, but how well?

Ayanami Rei Plugsuit Ver. (2007) by Kotobukiya

Last week I decided to do a review of an entire set of figures over the course of the week. I liked the idea a lot, and while a good deal of work I’ve decided to do it again this week with Kotobukiya’s Rebuild of Evangelion series of figures, starting off with Ayanami Rei and ending with my favourite, Shikinami Asuka Langley. That means Misato will be sandwiched between these two ladies, yum.
