MegaHouse revealed a new Neon Genesis Evangelion figure of Misato Katsuragi, which comes with a smaller figure of her penguin companion Pen Pen. Part of Megahouse’s Gal figure line, the Misato figure will open for pre-order in Japan on October 8, 2021, at 1 PM JST (12 AM ET / 6 AM CEST). The figure will cost ¥19,580 (about $175) and ship sometime in May 2022. [Thanks, Comic Natalie!]
The figure is based on Misato’s appearance from the latest Rebuild of Evangelion theatrical release. Misato can be seen holding her iconic red jacket at her side and carrying her portable laptop. The staircase she walks up doubles as a figure stand. In total, the figure will stand at approximately 250 mm tall (about 9.8 inches). Additionally, Pen Pen is included in the figure set and will look up at Misato when placed next to her.

Kotobukiya recently released two figures of Asuka and Mari from the Rebuild of Evangelion theatrical releases. Last month, MegaHouse revealed prototype designs for a Desktop Army figure set featuring Kaworu and Shinji. This comes after the latest Evangelion movie grossed 10 billion yen at the box office and became the most-watched video on Amazon Prime Video upon launch day.
