Good Smile Company announced it is taking a limited number of pre-orders of the Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance Asuka Shikinami Langley test type plugsuit figure. It is made by Animester and costs ¥30,250/$216.99. In addition to Asuka, people also get a diorama setpiece from when she was wearing that plugsuit in Rebuild of Evangelion. She’ll ship out in June 2024 in Japan. The North American debut will follow sometime in Q3 2024.
This version of Asuka is a static, 1/7th scale figure. Alone, she stands at 230mm/9 inches tall. Good Smile Company didn’t offer an estimate as to her size when displayed inside of the diorama. However, she can be displayed with or without the enclosure, which makes it look like she just suited up for the Evangelion Unit-03 test. Her doll from the film is on the shelf in front of the mirror. As a note, in the movie the room she was in had actual walls, but the diorama here omits them so people can more clearly see the character.
Here’s a closer look at the Asuka Shikinami Langley test type plugsuit figure based on Evangelion 2.0.
This is the second figure of this character in that plugsuit to appear recently. Good Smile Company also announced a Plamax version that allows people to build a model kit that creates a similar sort of statue. We’ll see that one worldwide in 2023.
The Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance Asuka Shikinami Langley figure will arrive in Japan in June 2024 and North America in Q3 2024. Good Smile Company pre-orders end on June 22, 2023.
