Kotobukiya 1/6 Evangelion Heroines

Neon Genesis Evangelion is an iconic title on the anime scene. Gainax have pretty much kept afloat all these years milking this series to death....... but am I complaining? Hell no! Due to the introduction of the theatrical Evangelion titles, some changes had been made to the story and also on the cosmetic front ie Unit 1 sporting more fluoro green. The theatrical versions also introduced whole new characters most notably Makinami Mari Illustrious who has won fans far and abroad with her cute bespectacled face through to her lullaby singing while on the hunt.

Kotobukiya has always been one of my favourites though I never owned one myself. They ensure the last details goes into all their figures I don't think there will be a better company to do this collection than them. presenting the Evangelion Heroines set the Makinami Mari Illustrious (such a tongue tying name) will be the first to be released in May. The originals Asuka and Rei will follow shortly.

The figures arent bad at all I like the colours and how the girls are posed with the heads of their respecting Evangelions which were designed to look like stone... or maybe Phase Shift?! As expected from a Kotobukiya piece the suggested retail price for the Mari will be going for 8190 Yen.
