Figure Review: Asuka – Rebuild of Evangelion

This absolutely beautiful figure of Asuka Langley Shikinami from Rebuild of Evangelion is no “Shinji, get in the goddamn robot” joke. From our lovely friends over at E2046, I present nothing but the finest.

At first glance, I could not help but notice the absolutely stunning glossy colour of Asuka’s armour. From top to bottom, the entire figure has a glossy and realistic looking texture that made me swoon in happiness.

Bringing Asuka out of her regular fiery hair and equally fiery temper, this is a wonderful take on her. The detail that has gone into the armour and the accessories is brilliant, I couldn’t have asked for better.

I absolutely love the pose she’s pulling. All the design work of getting into even the tiniest cracks has really paid off. The different shades of red, both Matte and Gloss, have really stood against each other, showing the different shades of red and the additional finer details of the prop, and the silver linings of her armour.

From a sideways view, you can truly see the detail of the figure overall. Every nook and cranny is perfectly crafted to perfection. Just look at how much detail has gone into her claw grip hand and her calf muscles. The painting job on this figure is really well done.
