Kaiyodo’s official Revoltech Express blog has been preaching the gospel of the brand’s new Fraeulein lineup of action figures for the past few days, introducing a prototype sculpt of Fraeulein #2 Tousaka Rin along with several pictures of Fraeulein #1 Ayanami Rei, including some rather wacky offerings today. Official information on the Ayanami release can be found in this entry, which pegs her at a January 1st, 2008 release at 2,000 yen (first lot limited, subsequent editions will be 2,200 yen). She’s 15 cm tall (~1/10 scale), with 18 points of articulation, 10 “revolver joints”, four alternate hands and the Lance of Longinus included. Apparently Kaiyodo is shooting for Fraeulein releases monthly on the first of each month; an ambitious production schedule, but great news for fans of bishoujo action figures. We’ll be keeping an eye out for preorders. (no more)
