[Merch] Rare Eva Figure?

I was at a con and I bought a Neon Genesis Evangelion 2 blind box PVC. I opened the box but figured I should wait to open the plastic wrapping when I saw it. It's a really well painted Asuka figure but her plugsuit and hair clips were painted with Rei's colours. I know it's not a blatant painting mistake because her hair is orange still and her plugsuit number is still 02. Anyone have any information?
Bagm!

IIRC, the NGE2 figures were made like that to be swappable. Not sure how that fit with the world simulator feeling of the game, but okay then. :lol:

I would bet on that being a bootleg.

But that's how they were made:

In all honesty, you probably know a lot more about the topic, but I'm staying optimistic. It's pretty damn well painted and put together for a bootleg if it is one. The box seems pretty legit and it wasn't my first time coming across those figures either.
Bagm!

Took some Japanese digging, but I found an example of the legit Asuka and Rei NGE2 figures:

Asuka http://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/663001689000

Rei http://www.suruga-ya.jp/product/detail/663001687001

"Rebirth Eva, Reboot" is what it says next to their character descriptions. IIRC, Bandai only made the 2 girls and some of the Eva units. No Shinji, etc though the NGE2 game has so many characters you can play as. :|

Though, I don't recall them having the entry plugs when I saw them on a site so many years back. Hm.
