Rei Ayanami – You Are (Not) Alone – of Evangelion (Alter)

December 11th, 2009 5 Commented

I got this figure a month ago and I did some photo-shoots of her, Rei Ayanami, back then. However, I couldn’t find the time to sort the photos or write anything about her. Finally, I’ve got to do something since I’d taken a day off from work before flying off to Korea tonight. Also, it’d be good since I still have a few of them on the shelves waiting to be photographed.

Actually, I was kind of upset when I received this figure. The reason had nothing to do with the figure, it’s the box. I was quite furious when I found out the box was damaged. The box was dented at the corners and the side of the plastic had cracked lines. I tried complaining to the local and Hong Kong post office and they always give the same answer, “we will investigate.” Honestly, we all know they won’t, and regardless of whether it’s a birthday card that comes through dented or ripped, or some RAM for you to work and run and a load of other programs and sites at the same time that arrives snapped in two, the answer never changes. If it wasn’t for the damaged box, I’d have a very nice transparent box. Anyway, life goes on!

This Rei comes with two hair which you can interchange, one without the any hair-clips (shown in the following photo) and the other with two hair-clips, one at each side.

I don’t really know much about Evangelion since I’m not their fan. I believe that it’s based on the animation, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone. However, the reasons that I bought this figure were this figure nicely sculpted (by 沼倉 としあき) and it was on discount (less about 20USD). :)

This is totally something new (a lying down pose) for me as most of the figures I own are standing upright. However, I found that her waist doesn’t look right to me. It was just too slim, I just find that very unusual. If you happened to look at her from the top view (which I don’t have any photos of that here), you’d know what I mean. Perhaps, I’m just being paranoid :) Anyway, on the overall, I like this figure a lot, she is great!

Here, I have a series of photos taken from different angles.

I also added two full-blown images for this last photo which can be used as wallpapers if you like. :)

In fact, Evangelion figures have always been hot items (in addition to the fact that she is from Alter), especially figures of Rei Ayanami and Asuka Shikinami.

Hence, I’m glad that I saw, I ordered and I bought it!

    OMG… i’m late… i didn’t have much time on the past few days.
    I think Rei is pretty. Her lying posture change from the usual figures. Moreover her face is thin and has a soft expression.
    I prefer her with her second coif.
    Good photographic work and the one to be use as a background is marvelous! bravo!

    Hello here :) I saw Rei and decided to pay a visit. I like Rei very much and she’s beautiful here. I’ve always thought that the suit from Evangelion were sexy.
    And Rei, with all her secrets and cold temper she shows, even more sexy :-)
    A great buy, congrats
