Evangelion 2.0 Petit R-Style Figures

Evangelion 2.0 Petit R-Style Figures
29 Dec 2009 23:19:15

Long time, no post. Sorry for my absence, but this holiday season was gratuitously more hectic than what I'm accustomed to. Things have calmed down a bit thankfully. But I am now the proud owner of 15 figures, so it's time to start honoring them!

First we'll start with doing a full post on those Eva figures from Hasting's that started it all. He had bought Rei that night when we found her. By the time I went back to his house again, he had already snuck back and bought Asuka and Mari too.

I did a little photoshoot of the trio last time I was there. You'll forgive the photos. 1) My camera is a little grainy and VERY fidgety, 2) I just now figured out how to use a camera without flash, so I'm a little new to this, 3) the lighting in his room is impossible to work with. No matter where I stood, I just couldn't get my shadow out of there. Conditions were less than ideal, and I plan on getting better shots in the future. For an idea of what I had to work with:


Like my tripod? XD


Here's the trio together.



Asuka is of course the most detailed, mainly because of the hair. Strangely enough, I like her the best. She just has better motion to her, with a more interesting pose.



I think my favorite part about her is the mini angel she's sitting on. It was a little disconcerting during the setup, but she has little plugs sticking out of her butt that connect her to it. The big seam on her head kind of bothers me, but it is a trading figure, after all.



Then there's Mari. I would have preferred her to be in a plugsuit like the other two, but that's a different set. I don't have much attachment to this character, as I haven't seen anything she's in. Her pose is a bit bland, but I do like what they did with the glasses. They're not nearly as terrible as something I'd expect from trading figures. But this isn't too bad at all, save for a little trouble keeping the glare out of them for photo taking.

You can pop off her midsection and remove her skirt, for whatever that's worth. I guess it's lucky for her that she has pantyhose on.

Also had to correct her photo a bit in an image editor. That weird lean she has made me lean to try to compensate. I didn't even notice I was doing it!


Overall as a group I'm pretty fond of them. I'd like to get the other sets as well, but that might depend on if Hasting's decides to carry them. Ordering them online costs twice as much because of shipping! Like I said before, I'd like to get better pictures of them and plan to in the future. I don't think he'd be too keen on me stowing them away to my house just to take pictures of them. ^^; Patience, then. Hope you look forward to it!

I also really like how Rei is sitting on her angel. I don't know if I'd ever get any more Eva figures, but these are very cute little figures. :)

I know! I really hope I can get a hold of some of the other sets, there's some other really cute ones.

Getting these wasn't too big of a deal. They're only $7 a piece, and he has a discount card that made them $5. $15 for 3 figures this cute is pretty nice!

Asuka is love :) Very cheerful one :) And Rei turns out to be sweet too.
I think it's a good idea to have several cheap small figurines to place on your desk, computer, etc. Well, I'm scared to display my 1/8 figures there, cause it becomes messy from time to time when I'm working or studying... and my cat has a terrible habit to climb on it.

Btw closeup shots are pretty accurate, you've done a great job :)

Hehe, on my desk is exactly where I have the nendos! Since the stand for my screen can act kinda like a little stage for them. ^^ He keeps the Eva girls on that checkerboard, which I thought would be a neat little thing of interest to photo them on anyways.

I don't have anything besides trading figures yet, so I haven't had to worry. My desk is way too hostile an environment for stuff like that, I think. XD I suppose they can go over my bed or tv if I do a little rearranging.

Yay! I'm glad you approve of my photos! Hopefully the next ones will be even better. :)

Nice Trio :)

Your photos remind me to check if Eva 2.0 DVD has been released, but I found only terrible Cam-Rip - lol! :)) Do you know when it's going to be released? :P

I saw a wireless PS Joystick on your CDs! Is it from PS3?

Thanks! I have no idea when it'll be released either, sadly. :< I don't really keep up with it as well as I should, but if I find out anything I'll let you know!

Hehe, it's not wireless, the wire's just cleverly hidden itself. :P I do have a PS3, but that's the remote to his PS2.

Hey, nice to see you.
I'm always late commenting posts, because I just can't check MyAnimeShelf as often as I would like to^^
Photos are really nice, I also like Asuka figure best, thought I don't really like the character. But, you know, in Rebuilt of Eva she is waaaay nicer, then in classic series. I think that creators of Eva wanted her to be more moe, so they kinda sanded off her rough edges.
And about Mary... I know, many people say, that she was included just to make more merchandise and milk the franchise even more.
But I liked her anyway. She is mature and absolutely sane, not like the other main charas^^

DVD of 2.0 will be out in Feb. as far as I know (in Japan).

As for tradings... I stopped buying them, as they really crowded my shelfs. If I want smaller and cheaper figures, I now stick to Game prizes^^
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?

It's fine if you're a little late, I don't mind. ^^ I can understand as there are times where I can't log on as much either.

I still haven't gotten to watch all of the first series, I'm so behind. XD It's a good reminder for me to catch up! I'm rather fond of Mari's design though, she seems like a classy gal. Except for that weird green plugsuit I've seen around, I much prefer the pink one!

Oh, good! That's sooner than I had hoped for. The boyfriend will be glad to know as well, he's been nagging me to find out.

I guess for me, trading figures seemed like an easier/cheaper option to ease myself into figure collecting. They're cute and fit nicely on my desk. ^^ I can see where too many might be a space problem though.

Mary is speaking English a lot in 2.0. And surprisingly it's almost "real" English, not some gibberish with horrible accent^^
Come on, catch up) Eva is a special anime. You may like it of you may hate it, but no one can say that it is a poorly made or mediocre. That's why its classic, I guess^^
And more about 2.0. See, I was REALLY impatient, so I watched that horrible CamRip. Even with coughs and heads across the screen it was like "WOW!! MY GOD!!! EPIC!!!"^__^ Can't wait for DVD to arrive^^
Yea, I started from tradings too. But this road (usually) leads you one way - to scaled figures and even to BJD (I'm still halfway there, no Dollfie yet, but I've got RAH Action figure)^^

Haha, wow, that sounds interesting I'm really curious now. I did like what I got to see of the show. My boyfriend had some of the dvds that he lent me, but he doesn't have them all, so that's why I haven't gotten to finish it yet. ^^;

I remember being impatient enough for camrips, so I can feel your pain. Luckily now I have plenty of other things to distract me while I wait. ^^b

I've wanted a BJD for many years. I just don't quite have the funds to invest in that much yet. Especially since I want to go to the store personally and do it, it makes it more special (plus more excuse to go to Japan!). Thankfully for me they've gotten slightly more affordable since I first looked at them. Oh no, now I've got them in my head again! XD

I couldn't help but go and look them up again. ^^; The prices are down more than I thought! I might be getting one a little sooner than planned then. Kinda makes me feel old though, I remember when the one I wanted to make was $900+, now it's only about $200-300! Wow!

And what BJD are you interested in? I heard that ever-popular Dollfies (which I don't really like, except maybe gorgeous Yoko) are about 400-500.
200-300 is a bearable price even for me! I paid as much for my Ginko Mushishi RAH, as it was rare and I had to use proxy to get it.

I'm not really a fan of dollfies either, something about their faces bothers me. I like the DoD's, with those super luscious eyes! I'm thinking to get Petsha, so that it will already come with hands, a head (with the pointed ears I need!), some eyes, etc. Then I can start making the clothes for it while I wait to buy up my other pieces one by one!

Somehow I managed to miss that post. :o

But yes, I do like him. ^^ Even if he does have a bit of a spooky stare to him, I like that! It's his character. He's still very pretty and elegant.
