Kommentare Asuka - 1/7 Radio Eva Original Color Ver. by Hobby Max [Review]

  • 2B9SVor 3 Monaten#89798149No worries, thanks for still taking the time to comment :) Ooh I've also been keeping a close eye on Wave's Asuka, it looks very promising. Having a figure of her wearing casual clothing and her shiny plugsuit would be nice. Damn that UC set is pricey. ( ౦ ‸ ౦ ) It is very beautiful though so I'm sure you'll be satisfied with your choice!
    Yes, I'm definitely going to pick up Shinji as well! Kaworu would be lonely otherwise lol. I agree that no other figure of his has really captured my attention until this one was revealed. I think it's because Shinji has such a simple design that it's hard to capture his true essence, which is a very interesting and complex character. The clothes he's rocking really make him shine and I don't think he'll get drowned out by my other figures.
    A long wait ahead but I think it's well worth it. I'll have to wait and see how the coloured variant turns out but I'm already leaning towards the original B&W version. The intense green just pops so well against the monochrome.

    Yes, let's hope Hobby Max will succeed with Shinji (but I have no doubt about that) and I agree with you about the nice contrast between the green and black and white.
    And yes, that price of UC's set hurts! You get 2 figures and a big entry plug for sure, but at that price UC don't have the right to fail. I'll take my final decision when they'll unveal the official pictures

    ArchiwheelVor 3 Monaten#89793003I'm late haha! Thanks for this nice review. I was super on the fence for this Asuka. I wanted to P-O her but finally I made the difficult choice to pass on her because I was more enjoyed by the future release ITEM #943602 and the upcoming set ITEM #872837.
    On the other side I'm super hyped for Shinji ITEM #872780.
    I have never been seduced by any existing scale of him but I think that this one will finally be the scale he deserves. What do you think?
    He will be the last one to release so I would expect a (mid?) 2022 release.
    Of course I'll go for the original black and white ver that fits to the original concept art.

    marrieletsgoVor 4 Monaten#89547820Great review! I wanted to pick her up but missed on her pre-orders, and am too afraid to look for the aftermarket price, but overall I think she’s beautiful and a great price/quality ratio!Thank you~ I had missed out on PO's for her as well but someone had cancelled their order on amiami so I quickly jumped on that ASAP >:3 I'm sure she'll show up pre-owned on there or mandarake and it's still early days since her release so hopefully the aftermarket won't go insane so soon. Good luck!

    GodlikeSaschaVor 4 Monaten#89552297Mine is still stuck in Japan but this shows what I have to look forward to when I finally get her. This was a very nice preview heheAww I hope she finds her way to you soon! My pics don't do her justice as she looks even better in person.

    TjilpVor 4 Monaten#89559158Hadn't heard about these figures before but they look so badass! It's really cool to see fashion styled figs like this, and those special colored versions make it even more unique and nice to look at, I think. The whole set looks great, like they're walking on a catwalk of sorts.
    Nice review :)
    Yeah I was late to the party as well but when I saw someone post that amazing illustration I had to further investigate and I fell down the rabbit hole of wanting every single one of them haha. I really love Hobby Max as a manufacturer, like Myethos they think outside of the box and make really unique figures no other company would dare to. Your take on them looking like they're on a catwalk is spot-on!

    CantisamaVor 4 Monaten#89538976Thanks for the great review. I have her colored ver and she turned out great. A nice change of pace from the usual angry Asuka.
    The tag-like thing on her jacket is attached to a pocket zipper (the zipper is easier to distinguish on the colored ver). I believe it's what you would pull to open and close the pocket, although it's longer than those things usually are. Like you said, the colors seem to be a nod to Eva Unit 01.
    I don't know about shoe styles either. On the colored ver, the shoes are Eva Unit 02 colored. It's a nice combo with the tag-like thing on her jacket. The shoes are actually one of the standouts for me. It's nice to see Asuka wearing normal clothes.
    I'm glad you brought up the box design. It's really cool and doesn't feel at all like you're opening a figure.
    I have Rei pre-ordered but will probably skip the rest. Waiting to see how Shinji turns out.
    No worries, thanks! That's nice to hear that her coloured figure turned out great as well. If I had the means I would've definitely ordered both versions but my wallet would never forgive me ;^;

    Ooh I suspected that might be it as I have my own jackets with pocket zips on the sides but it was just so obnoxiously big I couldn't work it out haha. Thanks for confirming my suspicions.

    Wow how did I not notice the shoes theme on the coloured variant? She really is decked out head to toe in her own show LOL. I really love all these intricate details.

    Rei looks very chic and I'm definitely considering her as well. PO's are closed on amiami but I'll probably set up an alert for a slot to open up and pounce on it. >:D

    ChimcharTrainerVor 4 Monaten#89517974This figure is gorgeous! Nice review (^o^)丿She sure is! Thanks for taking the time to read my review ٩(◕‿◕。)۶

    teddyshireVor 4 Monaten#89518031Thank you for the review. I was curious how this line would turn out as I am also considering getting Kaworu. Looks pretty good :)No problemo~ I'm so unbelievably excited for Kaworu and I will definitely be hitting that PO button day one.

    FlyingToNowhereVor 4 Monaten#89518339Nice review! I like how you described various things about the figure and aesthetic. I saw videos on Bilibili and got the same "pricey designer sneaker" vibe from the box. Love the stylistic choices, I ordered both variants and am definitely looking forward to getting them.Thanks! Yeah there's so many little details on such a simple figure I was very surprised when I unboxed her. The prototype pics didn't have the Nerv Logo on her hoodie or the Nerv patch on her sleeve so that was a nice bonus. That's really cool that you ordered both variants! They'll look great together.

    DexterdrakVor 4 Monaten#89519087Love the review! I received mine just the other day as well :)
    Are you thinking of going with the Original (Monochrome) or the Colored version of Kaworu?
    Thank you! I hope you enjoy her as much as I do. I was on the fence about Kaworu seeing as the differences between the two versions are so minuscule it took me a few seconds spot them. The key divergence is his eye colour and the coloured variant has his memorable crimson eyes so I've decided to go with that one. I think he'll still match Asuka well enough.
