She Has A Bandage On Her Head

The mysterious Rei Ayanami from the Neon Genesis Evangelion juggernaut gets immortalised in polyvinyl chloride. Again.

Famed illustrator Shunya Yamashita, who also created the characters for Final Fantasy X, designed this particular version of Rei, which was sculpted by Mitsumasa Yoshizawa. This is the second version of this particular statue. Rei Ayanami has long been a popular character, and there are countless Rei figures, posters and various merchandise.

Priced at ¥8,800 (US$94), the difference between this version 2 figure and the earlier incarnation? That bandage on her head. Oh, and the shoulder armour. And the $US21 price difference. Plastic bandages and should protectors are expensive!

    I'd get it, but I'm a sucker for anything evangelion. Can't wait for Evangelion 3.0.

    With amount of money I end up spending on these things you'd be able to fly me to the moon.

    Uh, Tetsuya Nomura designed FFX's characters...

    Way to confirm your research guys...

    SHunya Yamashita loves drawing sexy girls... Tetsuya Nomura did FFX O.o
