Another Rei Ayanami figure is on the way, and this time it is a Rebuild of Evangelion one showing her in her black plugsuit. It is based on her Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo appearance, complete with optional SDAT poses. It will show up in May 2023 in Japan. In July 2023, a North American release will follow. Good Smile Company noted it will cost ¥33,000/$229.99, and pre-orders are open.
As this is a 1/4 scale figure, Rei is quite tall. She’ll stand at about 16 inches. There is only one optional part, which involves the SDAT. People can switch her right arm. One part has her hand over her chest and is empty. The other looks like it is holding the player.
In the Rebuild of Evangelion films, the Shinji’s SDAT player is rather prominently featured. Over the course of the movies, it eventually goes from him to Rei.
Here’s a closer look at the Rebuild of Evangelion Rei Ayanami figure in her black plugsuit. Due to the color of the SDAT, it is often difficult to tell when she is or isn’t holding it. In one photo, a CD is next to her to provide a sense of scale.
This Rebuild of Evangelion Rei Ayanami figure will appear in Japan in May 2023 and in North America in July 2023. Pre-orders for it are open until February 9, 2023. The Rebuild of Evangelion films are available to watch on Amazon Prime.
