I feel like every other figure we report on these days is an exclusive. Good Smile Company, Hobby Japan, and now Kotobukiya is hopping on board the exclusives train! This time it’s yet another figure of Rei, not exactly a huge shock. Well, at least it’s not Asuka (though I am sure a matching version of her is in the works).
At 1/12 scale, the size of a figma, this is a very small Rei! Sadly her price doesn’t really match up, so while she’s on the cheaper side at ¥4,800 that is still a lot for such a tiny figure. If you’re a Rei fan in need of a fix she’s up in the Evangelion store, though of course you’ll need a proxy! She’s set for a November release. Personally, I don’t see anything too exciting here: it’s Rei in her plugsuit, and god knows we have enough of those. I really prefer their 1/7 version from last year a lot more (review).
