These are the last two figures from my box o’ stuff I had shipped by Big In Japan.
First up is an Asuka figure that I remember looking at on eBay when I learned gachapon were a thing:
This is Asuka Langley in her plug. Having a bit of a nightmare! I love the expression on this figure. She was a mild pain to assemble, and she had warped in the packet over time, so I had to heat her legs up so I could bend them to fit correctly in the plug. For such a small figure, it’s amazingly detailed.
Heh. Not much to see on the one above. Not a recommended viewing angle. Not too much to see here either:
Here is a photo showing the screen in a bit more detail:
I love this mini-vingette, and wish there was a similar version for Rei. But more… Rei.
There isn’t, so I went for this gachapon of Rei in her plug:
There’s more detail on the plug, but I’m not so keen on her hair colour. There’s also a bit of a mark on the plug, on this side. Ah well, that can be dirt *nod*.
And a view showing not much at all:
Yeah, gotta give that top bit a bit of a shove… Meh, it doesn’t really show.
Rei has a nice pose for this figure, but it was a bit hard to work out exactly how she was supposed to go, as there were no instructions, and I had to account for the fact she’s probably warped a bit over time, so had to work out if her legs fit under/over the front part. Her legs probably want a bit more bending, but I think she looks fine as is. It’s nice to have some gachapon figure that aren’t just a figure standing around.
