Flare: Rei Ayanami (Tentative Name)

Shunya Yamashita's Rei Ayanami goes up for pre-order

But is it really Rei?

Wow, it's been a while since I last saw full blown Evangelion scale figure go up for pre-order. This certainly wouldn't count as a traditional Rei figure since the design has been made over by illustrator Shunya Yamashita. When was the last time Flare manufactured a figure designed by Yamashita and sculpted by Reflect? It feels like 2010 all over again!

This Rei Ayanami follows up the Yamashita-designed Asuka from way back in 2010, when Flare was still going by Yamato (and Asuka still went by Sohryu, for that matter). That's quite a gap... almost as long as the gap between the Evangelion film releases! As you can see, this particular Ayanami is based on the Evangelion 3.0 incarnation. A lot of... strange things happened in that movie, but long story short, we don't know if this is really Rei.

I dig it though. It's not a great Rei figure but it's still a nice looking figure, and I am perhaps too much of a Yamashita fanboy. This one's set for an October release and is out for pre-order for ¥12,744.
