"Even after all this time, you're still just a troublesome brat!" Alter has made a couple of Asuka figures before, with the last one released almost four years ago. If that one was too happy and/or immodest for you (those test plugsuits can be quite revealing), this release may be more to y... read feature
I guess being an Eva pilot is just not a priority Since we saw Nendoroid Rei, the natural progression would be to see Nendoroid Asuka because they are the only two characters in the whole of Evangelion. It's still strange to me that the first Nendoroid Eva pilots we get are ... read feature

The ups and downs of prize figures Prize figures, when I started collecting, weren't things you'd go out of your way to get. They were too small, not very detailed, and had dodgy quality. Over time, all three of those aspects gradually improved to the point wh... read feature
