I have a few Rei and Asuka figures in my collection as I am a big Evangelion fan (even though there's quite a bit of angst in the show as everyone seems to be emotionally damaged). I've found that the story still resonates with me after a decade of fandom so it has to be pretty good. The reboot movies 1.11, 2.22 are quite good and it'll be good to see the 3.33 movie whenever it leaves Japan finally.
Having the figures is a fun way to bring the show to life and it is pretty interesting to see a 2D figure represented as a 3D sculpture. Anime and anime figures seem to have gained momentum over the years, but the figures have risen in price too.
Now for a brief show of the figures. I've found that the cosplay figure variants are pretty fun too!
Finally, a couple of Evangelion units and some gashapon figures by Sadomoto. These figures are tiny but they are nicely detailed. I like the fact that the bases were interlocking. I couldn't get the Rei, but a special request when I ordered some figures from Animenation got it for me (they picked one out for me all those many years ago - I really appreciated it!).
