Figure Review: Yamashita Shunya’s Ayanami Rei

The combination of a Yoshizawa Mitsumasa sculpt and a Yamashita Shunya design is enough to evoke a Pavlovian drooling response in many figure collectors, myself among them. Formerly available exclusively in limited resin kit form, the announcement from Yamato at last summer’s Wonder Festival that the Yamashita / Yoshizawa team’s coproduced Ayanami Rei would be coming in PVC was incredibly welcome news. Following shortly on the heels of other significant Yamato releases last December Rei was lost in the shuffle here at HD, but we’re happy to finally be able to bring you a review of this great figure!

To Love-Ru animal girl Lala PVC preorder open

The official online shop of publisher Shueisha updated today with a pair of listings (regular and limited) for two color versions of a new Lala Satalin Deviluke (animal cafe ver.) figure from To Love-Ru. Preorders are open until May 31st, and both are scheduled to go on sale August 22nd at 6,500 yen retail, 1/8 scale (17.5 cm tall), with a sculpt from Makio Munetoshi; the leopard-print version is the regular edition (based on her appearance in the manga) while the white version is “limited”, though precisely how limited is unknown. Figure production is from Kotobukiya. Both versions are castoffable both top and bottom, though she’s wearing some (very skimpy) lingerie beneath; preview images below:
