Figma Asuka goes up for pre-order

Figma Asuka goes up for pre-order
03 Aug 2010 04:41:49

Well, folks, another week, another Figma. this time, it's none other than Asuka Langley in her test plugsuit!


Soryuu? Shikinami? WHAT ARE YOU!?

This was a new plugsuit that made its debut in Evangelion 2.0: You can (not) Advance.


Oh, Gainax, you're just looking for more excuses to highlight Asuka's shapely tush, aren't ya?

Asuka comes with a number of accessories, including a cellphone and a cat-smile face.


Asu-nyan?

There's also her... doll... thing.


This thing was creepier than anything in End of Evangelion.

But the biggest accessory (and the one that will piss off folks who bought Mari for the cockpit) would be the entry plug seat.



Preorders for Asuka open tomorrow - anyone gonna bite? I'm waiting for the classic plugsuit, myself - especially if it comes with a pirate-Asuka face!


"She did WHAT to my EVA!?"

Is the cockpit exactly the same? It won't bother me much would be interesting to display them together seated in them. I'd be disappointed if Rei doesn't come with one now.

I'm pretty sure Rei will have one too. I can't remember exactly where, but I know I've seen shots of her figma in one. 'Sides, it wouldn't really make much sense to have the other two get them and not her, right?

Yeah, it looks like the plug seat is the same as Mari's. I think that even if Rei doesn't have the plug seat (though she probably will), she'll have a crapton of accessories to make up for it. Also, she needs an angry face for the missile-tossing scene in 2.0.

Mari's seat is different in that it can transform into the beast mode stand where she can stand up.



I haven't seen any pics of Asuka's seat doing the same. No pics of Rei's accessories have shown up, while it's pretty obvious she'll come with a seat, no word on what other addons she's have.

If you look just above Asuka's knee in the first picture of her in the seat, you can see a little gap at the same point where Mari's leg-rests can move. I think this would indicate that Asuka's seat-leg-rests can move, but that they just haven't shown it in any pictures. Besides, if they already have the molds, it would be cheaper to just use the same seat for all three rather than modifying the existing mold to make it LESS posable.

Since I've ordered Mari, and I know I'll get Rei, why not. I'm figma obsessed right now anyhow. ^^ I think even if they did a normal suit version, I'd end up getting it too.

What I'd really like is Rei in a pretty blue test suit~. I know it only really exists in fanart, but a girl can dream. ;_;

You could always make one, if you're confident with your painting skills. What you could do is go to a yard sale, buy some really cheap toys, and practice on them until you feel you're skilled enough to paint a Figma.

I... I hadn't thought of that! That's brilliant! :D There's always a ton of garage/yard sales in this neighborhood, too. I guess I'll order up 2 of Rei and Asuka then. Now I just need to think of something to do with the other Rei body/Asuka head. This is going to be fun~

You could make a Black*Rock Shooter plugsuit or something...

I had thought about maybe a variation of Append Miku. There's also a few sci-fi-ish images sitting around on my computer that I thought might be interesting to recreate. I think I'll scribble out a few designs for various things for a bit and go from there. After all, I've got a few months to figure things out. ^^
