Not April Fools: Revoltech Mari Illustrious Makinami!

This post accidentally got posted to March 1st. Oops.


Hobby Search just posted the lovely new lady of Evangelion 2.0, Makinami Mari Illustrious, in Revoltech form from Kaiyodo. (They also are no longer having their SAL commemorative sale, and are instead having their Paypal commemorative sale, ha.)

Anyway, the Revoltech looks pretty good. Plugsuits, with their convenient canonical spots for screws and whatnot, tend to look pretty good in Revoltech form. Mari's face and hair are also pretty decent for the format. And the best part, as usual, for a Revoltech: the price, a mere. ¥2,762 (about $30 USD, assuming you don't get it on sale).


 Anyone gonna bite? I'm thinking about it, though I would feel like kind of a poser knowing as relatively little about her as a character. But she's got such a nice design. And megane. And that awesome psycho face add-on! Mmmm. Maybe I'll just go for it.      
 
How about you?

I never liked Revoltech figures of human characters, I never bought the older Rei, Yotsuba, etc.  However, Revoltech robots are nice.

She is so cute... even with that crazy 'I'll eat your heart and drink your blood' face.  I may indulge myself only cuz my birthday is next week : D

Okay, sick of waiting for the photos off my girlfriend's camera, I'll just write the blog/review without pictures this weekend. 
 Shall tell you all about Mari Gia, that's if you want to know.
