Evangelion is probably the series that gets the most sega prize figures. One of the newest ones are the Asuka and Rei AREOCAT sega prizes. I acquired this figure previously at a con. They had lots of Eva sega prizes but this was the only one that really caught my eye. Though I do feel bad for not get the Asuka one too, I really didn’t like her pose. They also had the Summer Festival pair but I didn’t get them because they had a poor paint job. She also came with a water dish. Here are some pictures. (more…)

So last weekend was Phoenix Cactus Comicon and I got some new figures while I was there. Most of the figures they had where gasphon, blind box, and sega prizes but there were some exeptions. The booth for this one site, http://88dragontrading.com , was definitely the most figure droven booth. They had tons of revoltechs and “Art of Shunya Yamashita” busts. Other then that it was all Ikki Tousen figures witch I promised my self I will never buy. They also had one Witchblade and and Shana figures who’s sculpts were awesome but the minute I saw their faces it was definitely a don’t get. They were just…just…..iffy(^.^;) (more…)

Funimation Licenses Evangelion 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone

January 1, 2009

So even I thought that the last title was announced, but probably now their biggest new license they announce Evangelion 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone. Evangelion is one of my favorite series an in my opinion one of the best anime ever. I’m so happy that someone finally has the license to this movie. If you check out the funimation site for the movie here:
http://www2.funimation.com/evangelion/

It has a link to the Japanese trailer. It says at the side of the trailer the release date of the movie is November just like Soul Eater, but I doubt Funimation won’t give it at least a short theatrical run.
I’m happy that Funimation got this liscense because it will probably maintain most of its original voice cast.
