: I've seen these as expensive resin kits over the last few years.
: Recently, a number have been knocked-off and are available
: & painted from various sources throughout asia and can usually be
: via eBay. Most aren't legitimate product (authorized by Gainax or
: kits' original creators). A rather interesting development in the
: active character-statue market, nonetheless.
Yup. Mine, bought from Yesasia (I get free VAT & customs through
them), is this one http://www.hlj.com/product/NLI20005-2. Completely
legit & a lot more expensive than the ebay versions. Boxed as shown in
the HLJ pic. New in at YA.
I also have Misato 2000 http://www.hlj.com/product/MUSE33S bought a
few years ago from Animaxis.
This kit too http://www.hlj.com/product/FUJ09115. though the real car
would be cooler.
: The particular kit you're mentioning is in Hobbylink Japan's
: www.hlj.com - but I believe it has been out of production for some
: (my favorite of Misato, actually, in addition to the little
: figure of her in the hot spring w/ a beer can, looking wistful).
The bathing figure is cute, bought several, 1 for my car dashboard :P
And accurate. Scar is there, right size, right place.
I'd encourage anyone interested in the figure kit hobby to window
: HLJ. Their catalog maintains photos and entries for long out of
: production kits as well, which serves as a good reference for items'
: original release & SRP info. They don't *usually* have more risque'
: items (like the "Eva Undress Project" line), but just about
: else is there. They're a good e-tailer in my experience as well,
: excellent resource for hobby items from Japan without the typical
: secondary-market markups.

Best figure I have from HLJ itself so far is Noriko from Gunbuster
http://www.hlj.com/product/KBYPP-14 Bought it when I got the GB
I wish Amano & Jung Freud (Gainax's best redhead - sorry Asuka &
Grandis fans!) figures had been been made. GB is a trio show really :)
