This figure is of Rei from the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, although Rei never wore an outfit of this type in the series (at least not that I remember). Rei in this outfit was created to accompany the Asuka you see there in the back. I believe the Asuka outfit and pose was based off of a random drawing made by the original creator. This pair was made by Kotobukiya and are actually Kotobukiya US figures. What is a  Kotobukiya US figure you ask? They’re figures that Kotobukiya release directly to the US and are sold at a reduced price, from what I’ve seen they do not differ from the Japanese figures at all. They just have a much nicer pricetag on them, these guys cost me $35 a pop. Well worth the money, they look simply wonderful together. Although you have to wait longer then the Japanese street date to get them.
