North Face used a color scheme that isn't just bright, but... unintentionally they created a Unit-01 jacket.

Heh, there's a picture of Asuka (and Rei) in that exact pose and outfit (just with a red color scheme) in the Carmine artbook. They even got the hair in the exact same pose.

Yeah, they based the figures on that picture.

I got the 'special color version' so she'd match Rei if I ended up getting her too. The regular version has the normal red color scheme.

Makes perfect sense that they are based off of plugsuits.

I always felt wetsuits to be awfully similar to Plugsuits anyway.

Having a shrine to a fictional character is generally indicative of a lack of perspective, for starters.

I can get great perspectives on my Asuka shrine; it's just a matter of having a good camera and optimal lighting. :asuka_happy:

Does anyone know if that North Face jacket is actually currently being made? I've looked on their website but can't find it.
