The mysterious Rei Ayanami from the Neon Genesis Evangelion juggernaut gets immortalized in polyvinyl chloride. Again.

Famed illustrator Shunya Yamashita, who also created the characters for Final Fantasy X, designed this particular version of Rei, which was sculpted by Mitsumasa Yoshizawa. This is the second version of this particular statue. Rei Ayanami has long been a popular character, and there are countless Rei figures, posters and various merchandise.

Priced at ¥8,800 (US$94), the difference between this version 2 figure and the earlier incarnation? That bandage on her head. Oh, and the shoulder armor. And the $21 price difference. Plastic bandages and should protectors are expensive!
