In continuing coverage of Revoltech’s Fraeulein series of bishoujo action figures, the maker’s official blog reported and online figure shop Digitamin confirms that the first item in the series lineup, Ayanami Rei of Evangelion, will be up for preorder on November 1st with release scheduled for January 1st, 2008. In anticipation of the release Digitamin has created a product entry complete with a full image gallery exhibiting Rei in many of the poses made possible by the figure; this initial offering in the lineup goes on sale at 2,000 yen, with subsequent figures (Fate’s Rin and Eva’s Asuka are confirmed) priced at 2,200 yen. While Revoltech figures are regularly reissued to meet demand, those interested getting in on this first batch of Rei are advised to get their preorders in early as she’s likely to be a very hot item. November 1st Update: as of 6:00 PM this evening she is now available for preorder around the internet. (no more)
