Just finished episode 4 of NGE. Still enjoying it, and no fanservice since episode 2. Perhaps it's like Soul Eater, where the first three episodes were pretty bad, but after that it calmed waaaay down. :wacko:

 

 

 

The Evangelions series is structured in three acts of 8 episodes each plus a two episode finale (this was before the films)

The acts are essentials Introduction, Action and Resolution. That middle is the more light-hearted, fun and fan service based section of the series.

Awesome, thanks for the rundown, Nocturne! ::): I like knowing what to expect, so that helps a lot.

 

@CaptainPete - He is pretty fantastic, he's such an awesome crotchety old man. :lol: I didn't know there was a movie, so I'll look out for that, thanks!

 

Huzzah!

Are they looking to buy it, or just wanting to know if they exist? Also, does it have to be Reaper, or will anything do? You might have more luck doing a search for "figurine" instead of "miniature."

 

Here's some that are for sale on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/bhp/luffy-new-world-figure

@oneboot awesome! She will love those, they wont help with my quest to get her painting though :p

 

Thanks again!

 

Ah, okay, I didn't know what it was for! :)

 

After throwing my considerable researching skills at the problem, I've come to the conclusion that a) either unpainted One Piece miniatures aren't for sale, or b) if they are for sale, they're hiding really really well, and c) trying to do searches for things from a show called "one piece" really confounds the search results <_<

 

I did most of my searches for Luffy, since he's the main character and I figured if there were any paintable minis out there for One Piece, they'd be of him. I couldn't find anything, though. :down: Are there any other anime shows she's into? Like, um, Dragonball Z, for example? I found a few pewter DBZ minis during my searching. ^_^ And I'm sure there are Final Fantasy paintable figurines out there. In fact, I'd be VERY surprised if there weren't.

 

Huzzah!

The only unpainted One Piece figures I know of are the ones from the model kits of the Going Merry and Thousand Sunny, and they're quite small.

i've half built the Going Merry, that's on the "really must finish this" list for next year.

 

Even the model kit of Luffy comes in full coloured plastic

The Japanese market for gaming miniatures is surprisingly small.

 

 

EDIT: I think there was one series of trading figures a while back that were unpainted, pretty sure they were chibi figures. They don't seemt o be around anymore though.

Nocturnes comment switched on a light in the back of my brain, there was this set:-

Bandais 'One Piece Amazing Log Collection'.

If I remember correctly they were really tiny (even by chibi figure standards) and sold terribly, so the line was abandoned but there might be one or two gathering dust on Ebay.

Thanks to all this NGE talk and my re-watching of the series, I'm re-reading the Shinji Ikari Raising Project manga. I like how they take Gendo from being the worst character in the original series to the best character in the manga. So many good lines...

 

 

Gendo: I just asked where your class was...

Shinji: Like, how did you ask? There are people crying out there, dad.
