Postby soul.assassin » Sat Nov 27, 2010 11:41 am

Dunno where I should put this, but I found out that Rightstuf cut the price in half:

$17.49 for the BD, and $14.99 for the DVD. Damn! :D

Ordered mine from J-List. *shoots self in foot*

They're so stupidly expensive compared to everywhere else. I wish I'd waited and ordered Figma Asuka from AmiAmi... would've saved about $15. But I've already payed so I can't cancel the order. :hyuga_hmm:

EDIT: Just ordered some shit from AmiAmi and they're just as expensive as J-List; they just wait to hit you with overpriced shipping at the last second.

Nothing particularly nice, just picked this up from my local figure shop on black Friday. :asuka_happy:

Are there any upcoming Shikinami figures with a school uniform? I'm not much of a plugsuit/batching suit/maid/pajama fan, unfortunately. D=

That's a long shot, I think. The calendar itself has some serious amounts of gratuitous "service", and it's always the case for years. :)

That is really nice. If Max Factory makes an Asuka next I might have to get one.

I would guess that it's already been released, seeing as the release date is mid-November.

Just out of curiosity, why is everyone referring to new Asuka merch specifically as Shikinami merch? She's identical in both continuities/series/whatev as far as I can tell. Unless it's a picture of her playing with a doll or moping in an elevator, it seems more convenient just to call her Asuka.
Even in death, I still nerd.

The image used in that T-shirt is taken directly from 2.22 and there's a little of distrust/hate for Shikinami around here so people usually refer them as two different characters.
So let’s make a wish.

Sohryu =/= Shikinami and Red =/= Ash. Deal with it.

By all means, but let's take that stuff into here, for example:

[url]http://forum.evageeks.org/viewtopic.php?t=9608[/url]

The whole merchandise thing, figures and whatnot, is a bit out of my sphere of interests, but I can actually think of "Shikinami" merch as "Asuka" merch as long as I can watch it and force myself to forget that there was never anything called Rebuild 2.22. (This effectively means I don't think I could ever consider stuff like rebuild slutsuit / hadaka figurines as "Asuka" merch...) I'll have to admit I do have a screencap of Shikinami from the futon scene in 2.22 as my desktop wallpaper... but there is no Shinji or pretty much anything of Shinji's room in the picture so I can keep believing it is actually Soryu...

EDIT:
Share?


Well, why not? Warning; the saabisu cleavage might be considered nsfw. ymmv. ...and even if I do want to think of Soryu when that picture is on my screen, I just could not name that file "Asuka". Take that as you will... Alas, photobucket did not like the idea of holding 1920x1080 in share, that one'll have to suffice...

The art of being grown up, the dirty little secret nobody lets on about, is that it's all about getting comfortable with acting the part, and reaching that point where you stop giving a fuck, and do stuff that needs to be done, because it just needs doing, and ain't nobody else going to do it for you. -Mr. Tines
