1/8 Scale Ayanami Rei Uniform ver. figure by Aizu Project will be re-released by late October and is now open for pre-orders at Hobby Search. She’s going to be sold at 11,400 yen.
As much as Rei is one of the most favored characters ever, I can’t see what’s so special about this figure that it costs 11,400 yen. She’s 1/8 scale, yes, but neither her sculpt nor the details give justice to that huge tag price. I’m guessing fans who devote themselves to collecting images of her wouldn’t mind though.
