Figure Preview: Evangelion duos

With the recent release of Evangelion: You Are (Not) Alone on DVD (and Blu-ray soon) it's not surprising that Kotobukiya has some figures on the way. Rather than focus on the EVA units or individual characters, collectors can snag pairs of characters at a time. I found the poses for these two releases rather interesting and a bit different than what one would expect. Pictures are worth a thousand words though, so without further delay.

Rei & Asuka - Plug Suit Version

Rei & Asuka measure 8 inches in height and will see release this March with an SRP of $69.99.

Shinji & Kaworu

I do not have measurement details yet on Shinji and Kaworu (though they are 1/8 scale), but one would assume since it's a companion piece it should be roughly the same size as Rei & Asuka. This release hits in March as well with an SRP of $59.99.

Needless to say if you're a Neon Genesis Evangelion fan these figures are right up your alley. Then again, if you're a diehard collector then you may recognize these from a couple of years ago. The original line was so popular that they were lined up for a re-release. Maybe they'll prove to be just as successful?
