Amiami and other vendors have it for ~38,500 yen, though shipping from Japan is likely to be expensive for such a large figure.

I feel a bit of cognitive dissonance, though, considering Rei and Asuka's relationship in the series. It's hard to imagine them in a happy moment like that.

I've been following this figure since it was first announced, and have hoped they would change Asuka's expression to be more like it is in the illustration (with the slightly open mouth). It's disappointing that the finished version doesn't match, and it's too expensive for my tastes anyway, so *shrug*

You mean Gainax.

Khara is Rebuild.. and only Rebuild.

and close to $400 for a statue.. no thanks.

I am a fan of Sadamoto's art but this picture in particular never really grabbed my attention.
And as previously stated is very out of character for Asuka.
