Asuka looks really lovely in that poster, but Shinji.... looks kind of retarded? That site is pretty cool, but lately I've been looking to buy this: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v221/to_the_weststar/yhst-55181551352159_1968_12158886.jpg and they just don't have it. They have a plethora of new resin kits, though. But those are a lot of work.

I've considered that one myself, it's really gorgeous. Crops up on ebay quite a bit.

I want this poster so bad!

Also, I've just ordered this 12cm model of Shinji from eBay! ^_^ I love eBay! And I've just bid on a Misato figure from the (absurdly cute!) Eva @ School range!

Eva merchandise = pure awesomeness (most of the time anyway, not-so-much in the case of that hideous MP Eva plushie! :p)

The Portraits series are probably my favourite line of figures. They're really nicely detailed - great expressions, particularly - and a good size for the price. Can't wait for the 4th lot in November...although COUGH COUGH some more of the male cast would be nice :x

@ perfected_sound: rightstuf.com is made of win; don't forget that. ;)
(I know I've seen it there before...)

But anyway, I found it here http://factorytoystore.com/product/166026011/B000OFTE2G/ASUKA_LANGLEY_SORYU_CASUAL_CLOTHES_STATU/

Hope that helps!

That's great to hear! I can't wait to get it in the post now! ^_^

I want the Rei 'portraits' model next! The one where she has the lance of longinus.

I feel your pain at the lack of male characters - I can't find any Kaworu stuff anywhere, and even Shinji stuff is pretty rare ;(

Thanks! I think it's new so it's relatively easy to find, I'm just trying to finda site that has one that's around that price (some sites seriously overcharge :? ) that also has some other stuff I want. But really, it's beautiful. I just need to own it.

Wow. I'd love that.

Have you tried looking for the recent PVC statue of Kaworu and Shinji sitting together? It's expensive, but it looks really nice (says the person who can't afford one) :(

I managed to get a lot of older Shinji merch from obscure websites or smaller anime stores who hadn't ran out of their stock yet.

Kikiwai is a Canadian site that's served me well for this.

Oh yes, I have seen that one quite a lot actually! It's very cool, but far too expensive :[

My pride and joy, and I got it for a mere 26 quid :D (I know, I say 'mere' :roll: ...but it was so much cheaper that I'd seen it anywhere else that I just bought it on the spot.) Unfortunately I've just checked the site I purchased it from and they don't appear to have it listed anymore.

Wow, that is quite a bargain price, actually! I want one soo bad :[

And now I have just ordered Misato from the Evangelion @ School range!

Stardust would kill for some MOAR Shinji-kun goods, too. :( He is the main character, after all! Oh, and this is horribly horribly off-topic, but just popped into my head: Was the main character of Eva originally going to be female? If so, maybe that kinda explains why Shinji acts effeminate?

But since there's a distressing lack of Misato goods (it seems like Maya is featured on more things then her?) there should be some Kaji goods, too. ^_^

Maybe, but unless he grew a pair of melons the size Okinawa when I wasn't looking, it ain't gonna happen. People just don't care about him (for various reasons too numerous to list).

But since there's a distressing lack of Misato goods (it seems like Maya is featured on more things then her?)

I am a little surprised at how little love Misato gets in the merchandising area, but you know how the Japanese are. If it ain't loli, it ain't worth it.

I wonder if they'll ever make a EVA-GANG toy...like, everyone from Evangelion in one set, all happy and stuff, including the Eva, Eva Series, EVERYTHING!

that would prolly cost quite a lot...o.o

where are kaworu dolls? there hasn't been much....has there? and ritsuko? any gendos? or fuyutsukis? maya? hikari? touji? yui?

hmmm....all i see around are the Children and the Eva.

I have a Maya figure from those trading boxes (Portraits maybe?), there was also a Ritsuko one but I didn't get it.

I think these trading figures were pretty cheap, they're only 10 or 12 centimeters high. I got 2 of them for free at some store (in Akihabara) for buying so much stuff, and I think I bought 2 more for maybe 850 yen? I'm not sure how much they are in the states.

I've not seen many Gendos, Fuyutsukis, Tojis, and Yuis tho, if at all.
