Alter does Evangelion Rei, P3 Elizabeth, Onee Chanbara Aya

Figure maker Alter updated their official site this morning with listings for three new figures scheduled to appear in their October ’08 release lineup! The first is Ayanami Rei, heroine of the Eva franchise (here credited as being from the new movie, though it’s hard to tell). Her sculpt is from Numakura Toshiaki, and she’s set for release at 1/8 scale (17 cm long) and 6,090 yen retail. Next up is Elizabeth from Persona 3 FES, with a sculpt from Saitou Fumiki. She’s also due out at 6,090 yen and 1/8 scale (22 cm tall). Finally there’s Aya, from Onee-Chanbara VorteX. She’s due out at 1/7 scale (25 cm tall) and 8,190 yen, with a sculpt from Takeuchi Goutarou (Atelier Bamboo). None of the three appear to be significantly castoffable. Images below:

Along with his Heavy Gauge colleague Kana he participated at WHF Ariake 18 yesterday under the circle name “3D Megane”, where the painted prototype of his Persona 3 Aegis (Aigis) kit was on display. The results of an ensuing photographic frenzy can be found below:

Figure News: Persona 3 FES Metis, Ma ga Ochiru Yoru Sherisu coming in PVC from Orchid Seed

Further coverage of yesterday’s Hobby Complex 02 is in today from GA Graphic, which reports on two new PVC kits coming from Orchid Seed: the first is Metis, the FES-exclusive Persona 3 character, with a sculpt from Ishinaga Sakurako (Google cache). The second is Sherisu, the protagonist of eroge and eroanime Ma ga Ochiru Yoru.
