This is the first "gathering" I buy, and I have to say I'm very happy with it. The figure sculpt is gorgeous, and the painting is excellent. I have some concerns about the stability because I think Asuka leans maybe just a little, but I hope this doesn't get worse. All in all, she's now one of the my favorite Asuka figures, and I have quite a few already :).
Ooohh! she's lovely. This is the first pre painted figure I have bought from e2046 and I will certainly be doing so again. Packaging was very secure and she arrived in perfect condition. The scallywags at the excise house have definitely got my number and imposed an import tax. But hey ho, these things happen. I bought this to go with my Rei version which was made by my fair hands from a kit. So tis interesting to compare my work with the pro's. Yes indeedy, I have a little way to go yet. Asuka is flawless both in manufacture and finish. Detail is superb and that's about it really. She has more pipes and tubes than the kit version of Rei and the stand is more detailed,but they do look a nice pair together. A bit more expression in the face would help but otherwise she is gorgeous. Although I love everything about women, I do get a little fed up with these modellers obsession with the breasts. I mean don't they have girlfriends for god sakes? Asuka's are maybe just a little too big for her ( as are most anime kits) with puffy nipples, I mean come on, is it absolutely necessary? I like these kits for the artistic quality and the fact that they are, well, just so cool, but I would prefer a more natural breast please (wouldn't we all :) My wife's immediate reaction to all my models is to remark on the breasts, perhaps she's jealous and checking out the completion. I don't know, but I end up making excuses for my love of all things anime. Anyhoo, that's me done. Cheers.

Impressive adaptation work from ORI here, it's fun to compare between Asuka and Rei and see how the base and wires have been rearranged to give the appearance of an all-new sculpt, and Asuka herself is a nice match to her counterpart Rei in terms of proportion and sculpt.
