One more Preorder of the Year - RAH Rei!

One more Preorder of the Year - RAH Rei!
11 Jun 2010 11:43:32

So it's a fact now - I'm changing my ways as a figure collector. I'm slowly drifting away from figmas and PVC figurines.
I missed figma Rider preorder and now, when she's out, I'm not running around in circles on Ebay, looking for less-overpriced one among heavily-overpriced. I just let it pass.
I see G.E.M. series 1/8 Okita from Gintama (an INSTANT preorder 6 month ago!), add him to the database and let him pass.

I trade all this relatively cheap pleasures for one or two expensive delights. I've got 200$ resin Rider and now I'm going to get my long-awaited RAH Rey Ayanami School uniform ver.

There she is. She is great. Medicom even bothered to add her band-aid hand. It was a sweet moment in Eva 2.22 (mild spoiler), when Rei tried to cook and cut her fingers.

I preordered her from AmiAmi - this is my first order on this site. I usually avoid AmiAmi because they disapprove canceling preorders and I change my mind quite often. But I made a simple calculation:
Basic price - 16800 yen - 184$
HLJ Early bird discount yen - 15960 - 174$
Hobby Search - 14280 yen - 156$

and finally

AmiAmi - 12750 yen - 139$

Too tempting^^ And I won't change my mind on Rei. Oh, and BTW, Medicom also announced Asuka and Mari RAH. But, for now, I'll refrain from getting them too. I'm a Rei-fag only^__^

My only remaining hope is Kaoru and Shinji in school uniforms. For now there is no sight of them, unfortunately.

I'm actually tempted to get the two of them as well, But those prices! :( I have a hard time affording the JoJo figures i want from them. (Not to mention i'm tying to avoid buying evangelion figures in general)

the two of them? you mean Rei and Asuka? And why avoiding Eva?
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?

Yeah that's who i meant. I try to avoid buying EVA figures because it's not one of my favorites and there's so many nice figures based on it, I have quite a bit already.

I can fully understand your turn towards expensive figurines. Myself, I'm doing kind of the same thing - stick to large scaled completed models instead of cheap action or trading figurines (though I'm not scornful of anyone, many men many minds, you know). Rei looks very attractive here. I hope it would be of excellent quality and you wouldn't regret the purchase.
