1/6 Scale Ayanami Rei plugsuit ver. figure by Kotobukiya open for Pre-orders!


1/6 Scale Ayanami Rei by Kotobukiya

Evangelion’s first child Ayanami Rei has a 1/6 scale figure by Kotobukiya open for pre-orders in Hobby Search. The figure is scheduled for re-release on October — simultaneous with her Asuka Langley 1/6 scale figure counterpart.

Comparing Asuka’s 1/6 scale figure to Rei’s, I can say that Rei’s figure really depicts Rei’s demanor, compared to Asuka. Although I’m iffy on Asuka’s position — well, Rei’s doesn’t look awkward anymore, but I can’t help but think that she’s doing… something… with that rock she’s sitting on.

    I’m sorry, but this is another bad Rei Ayanami figure.

    The figure is good, but it’s not Rei Ayanami. The face is the most important bit, and very rarely do we seem to get a Rei figure with Rei’s face…

    Wave’s figure is the only one that I’ve seen recently that worked.

      I do agree with you that Wave’s figure is better than this one… I have to admit though that I couldn’t really distinguish how Rei’s face is supposed to be depicted Dx

        The face feels too wide, something about the cheek, and the expression.

        This is a perfect Rei, this one’s also alright.

        Here‘s a whole bunch of Rei. A Youtube video with crappy music, but it doesn’t really look like her above, even the picture that the above seems drawn from, more or less (21 seconds in).

        Hmm… I think I understand what you meant…
        Now that I look at the figure photo again, I do think it doesn’t look much like Rei– more like just a look alike of her.

        It’s shocking, for some reason Rei seems to have a large amount of her figures like that.

        And being such an iconic character, I can’t imagine why…

        Wave Plugsuit Rei is both cheaper, and better, so if I were getting anything, I’d happily get that.

        Rei also suffers from another thing, but that’s more understandable. Most Rei figures have her seem in her twenties, and seem to lose her teenage-waifish air. But the plugsuit tends to do that.

    I have been meaning to get that figure since the first time it came out. thank goodness it is being re-released.

    Love the pose… but the face… i cant bare with the face…

    But yeah, I’m gonna echo similar sentiments to Razrig and Guy, she doesn’t so much look like Rei then like a 25 year old woman cosplaying Rei.
