CWC revealed its design for a Neo Blythe doll of the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime's Rei Ayanami in her plug suit on Tuesday. A limited edition of 2,000 "AYANAMI REI×BLYTHE –White Light-" dolls will be ship in December for 24,990 yen (about US$320) each.
CWC describes its dolls, which originated as an American Kenner doll line that lasted only one year:
Neo Blythe is a fashion doll that her head is about the size of a grapefruit with slender body. She always dress up with clothes especially made for her.
When you pull the string at the back of her head, her eye colors and eye direction will change and this changes her face expression totally. When her eye color and direction change, she looks almost like a different doll.
