  • Morohace 4 años#3595947I doubt she would stand without a base (the scythe affects her balance too, and she is mostly on one foot) but I don't expect it would be that hard to try and make a smaller base for her if you were so inclined.

    I see what you mean after I checked out the original resin kit it's based on. A wooden base might work equally well. Thanks for the reply.

    Steinvas1055hace 4 años#3583744I like the figure but the size of the base is keeping me from buying it. Does anyone think the figure would be able to stand on its own if I removed the peg from the feet?

    Morohace 5 años#2591619Ah, I'm a perv, so I like sexual things of my favorite characters (and it's fiction anyway so), but they have to feel in-character somehow. They have to pull off what feels like the correct look for if that character was in a sexual situation. If there were some ecchi figures of any of the Eva girls that "felt right" I would definitely have them, but I am picky also. I mostly satisfy my desire for ecchi Eva stuff with doujinshi, I have a pretty big collection.
    Those Creators' Labo figures are pretty but they don't feel at all like Asuka or Rei to me, even as older versions. Though I suppose the Asuka isn't too far off from Evangelion Anima Asuka.


    I totally understand what you mean, it is fiction and people are entitled to their own opinions and preferences. I suppose to me aswell I kind of view Rei as asexual so it would just seem really OOC to me lol whereas i'd be more open to a slightly ecchi one of asuka. But again, i'd be really picky about it haha
    Yeah while I quite like their rei I'm not fussed on the asuka at all, her body proportions seem really off to me

    BatFruitshace 5 años#2590281I had a look at your review :) and yep I totally agree, I don't really like OOC figures. Alternate versions and costumes are fine by me, I just don't go for OOC poses and facial expressions. I know what you mean about Asuka, I generally don't like seeing sexualised figures of the eva girls cause they're 14 canonically so it doesn't sit right with me. I make exceptions for figures that are made to look like an older version of the character like this Rei ITEM #242

    Morohace 5 años#2590111I actually did a review of that Rei here if you're interested BLOG #16026
    You'd think that a mostly "blank" expression would be easy to get right, but it turns out it's way too easy to get a drugged/high look instead. Or just a way OOC smile. A soft, gentle smile is a must for Rei, or else none at all, lol.
    I also find Asuka to be frequently misrepresented but for a different reason. As you say, she's more open in expressing her emotions, but I don't like the figures where she has the kind of smile like she's going "hey big boy..." at the figure owner XD It feels OOC. I actually don't own any smiling Asukas come to think of it. Just worked out that way.

    BatFruitshace 5 años#2590089It is gorgeous, I would love to own one some day! I think she is a really hard character to capture, Asuka is very over the top in exoressing her emotions in the series so I'm happy to see smiling, happy figures of her, Rei is a lot more subtle though so I can see why its tricky

    Morohace 5 años#2589943Yeah I see what you mean. That one is 100% classic NGE Rei. That's what I love about it. My complaint is that Rei figures often make her look vapid or drugged, or uncharacteristically happy (a smile from Rei is rare, after all.)

    BatFruitshace 5 años#2589937I agree that figure has a really good Rei face, I think I'm so picky as I'm biased towards her design in the original rather than the Rebuild, and most figures portray her more as she is in rebuild. But now I'm just being nitpicky!

    Morohace 5 años#2586806It really is strange that with so many Reis, so few of them truly have her face right. I think top honors goes to this figure for the perfect Rei face: ITEM #945
