After quiet some time I have finally felt the call again to update my meager figure collection with some new goodies, specifically from the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime. shootingstar2 My two favorite characters from the show are Ayanami Rei and Souryuu Asuka Langley particularly in that order. heh

When I was looking for figures many years ago I didn’t have access to as many buying outlets like I do now (thank you internet!) and so it was hard to find nice figures I actually wanted to plop the money down for. Twin this with my like for older shows which didn’t get as much merchandising as the shows of today and you can start to see my dilemma. So a few weeks ago I started looking at a new figure site and realized that with the release of the new movies for Evangelion there was a fresh large influx of delightful figures. Woohoo!

So without any more fuss, let me show off my first new figure in ages, Ayanami Rei, maid cafe version.

This set is actually in a few pieces, chair, Rei and her cup/saucer. There is also a coordinating Asuka figure which I am waiting on. When she comes in I’ll set up for a proper photo shoot, it’s going to be so lovely. musicnoteshappy I am working on setting up a space for them to display along with some extra room for new one’s. Needless to say I am already eying some others. I need more Ayanami Rei in my life, yes, yes I do. :D

Figure hunting along with doll hunting has kept me glued to my computer for a few more evenings than I really care to admit as of late, thus my lengthy time between blog updates. Oopsie! I’m not very behind though, more to come about daily life soon (like the state fair!). :-)

I’ve also been watching a fair bit more dvds than I usually do, here’s the run down:

  • Emma – A Victorian Romance : A really sweet series about a maid set in Victorian England
  • Trinity Blood : One of my tried and true favorites for conspiracies and vampires.
  • Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone : I am very anxious to see 2.0 now!
  • Shinobi – Heart Under Blade : Great ‘kung-fu’ action film.
  • Fate / Stay Night (in progress)
