Funko, the company responsible for the POP! Vinyl figure craze has obtained the license for Evangelion POP! figures, as amongst their announcements for their San Diegeo Comic Con (SDCC) Exclusives is a POP! vinyl figure of Asuka depicted in her School Uniform.
I feel this is a good figure for Asuka (I don't think they could've captured the character as well with the figures they were putting out in 2015, POPs have improved in the last 2-3 years), and I anticipate it'll see a wider release after SDCC as a Summer 2019 stickered exclusive. I think the most interesting thing about it that the logo on the box is for Neon Genesis Evangelion rather than the new films - one could read that this and any future POP figures are part of a classic Evangelion line rather than a Rebuild line, though as their site doesn't specify if it is Soryu or Shikinami - I am leaning towards interpreting this first Asuka as inspired from the series rather than from the films.
I've not seen announcements of any other Evangelion POP! Vinyl figures at this point, though it's a safe wager that Funko obtained the license for most of the characters and is just releasing this one first on its own to gauge interest in it. Or, they could've gotten the license on similar terms to the Pokemon license, and are releasing the characters slowly rather than in a row so as to not drown out product from other licensed companies. I've only read listing on the Funko site and Poppriceguide, so I've not seen what other people are speculating about the license or future releases.
Also, the timing of this release is rather good, given the series goes live on Netflix in a few days ... anyhow, the Promised Time Has Come, NGE POP! vinyl figures are a reality, and if the Asuka POP! looks as good in person as it does in the picture they will probably get my money for one.
Edit (amendment): the Asuka seeing a wider release outside of SDCC. It's apparently Hot Topic store exclusive in North America (at least according to the Funko site), though EB Games/Zing and similar specialty stores in Australia & New Zealand will probably stock them as well.
