Nendoroid Rei Ayanami?

Nendoroid Rei Ayanami?
19 Jul 2010 18:26:28

Well, some interesting photos have been popping up recently. If the figure depicted is real, then it seems that our next Nendoroid will be none other than TEH REI herself.


And there was much rejoicing.

However, don't start getting too excited just yet. We still don't know if this is a real Nendoroid, or just an extremely well-made custom. However, it was found on the Ameblo server, the same server than the official GSC blog uses, so it may be real. In the meantime, here are some more pictures.


ZOMG IT'S TEH REI


Looking a little tubby there, Rei.


You gonna get blankly stared at.

So if this does turn out to be real, what other Eva Nendos would you like to see? Asuka and Mari are pretty much a given, but I'd personally love a Nendo Gendo, complete with parts to do "the pose."

EDIT: It turns out that this is a garage kit, made by a circle called Grande Works. Grande Works, however, also works part-time as a sculptor for GSC (they designed the Shana Nendoroid and the Bakemonogatari Petit Nendoroids, among others). Given GSC's good relationship with Grande Works combined with the fact that Eva stuff sells like hotcakes, a general release is almost guaranteed.

Another Miku? I don't really get why. It's just a different art style...

Oh yeah, and I updated the last paragraph. Turns out it's not a custom, but a garage kit made by a GK circle who actually helps GSC out a lot with Nendo sculpting (they sculpted some of the Vocaloid Petit Nendoroids, among others). It has a very high chance of an official release.

For some reason, GSC has always been a little bit reluctant around Gainax properties. For example, they made a Yoko Nendoroid and then never touched Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann again. My guess is that since preorders are selling like hotcakes for Figma Mari, they've finally realized that Eva is profitable enough to make other merchandise for.

As for Miku, I'd love it if they made a super-posable one like the recent Saber and Neko-Arc Nendos. If it's just a new design, though, I'll stick with my normal Miku.

...and I thought Asuka was the "fat one" (referring to the Magma Diver episode of Evangelion).
