Dedicated thread because otherwise the talk is too scattered in other threads and Eva needs more lovin'

So the new Eva-01 Awakened Ver. from the very awesome Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0 YOU CAN (NOT) ADVANCE, finally came out. I have to say, it is so much more awesome than I expected. You get most of the old kit with quite a few parts unused. Like with the old kits this really comes in handy sometimes. For this new one you not only can build the Awakened Ver., but also get all the parts need to build a plain, updated Eva-01.

Changes: http://www.mresource...ated_eva-01.jpg
-lower torso armor resculpted
-neck resculpted
-both old head and new Awakened raging head included
-outer parts of the upper shoulder updated to go along with the slight redesign between the movies, see lineart
-thighs resculpted
-added effects parts

I really hope they hurry up with the new Eva-02. The movie comes out on DVD and BD in Japan on May 26th, they could easily pop it out in time.

I really want this, but ordering online isn't an option for me.....





I could always get the Eva-00 "New Movie" version though. But no shoulder pylons....sigh.

This thread will die fast... lolz no EVA love anymore.

Right now I think there more focused on popping out the butt plugs... I mean the eva entry plugs. Shinji and Rei's are out and Asuka's is comming out in April IIRC. Cockpits are cool but.. these things are tiny scale wise and seem to be more of a waste...

If they were the size of PG Gundams, I'd get Shinji's any time.




Also, I wish Eva kits weren't so rare. I mean they're pretty darn good, IMO.

The to-be-released Eva-01 and Eva-02 kits from Bandai are looking mighty fine.




Also, the Robot Damashii Eva-01 and Eva-02 are simply amazing. Although they're not kits, but hell I'm getting the Robot Damashii Eva-01 when it comes out this 22nd.

Alrighty then. My Awakened Ver. Eva-01 arrived on tuesday, I snapped it Wednesday and been taking a few pics. So as previously posted lineart shows there's quite a few changes between 1.0 and 2.0 Eva-01 and the Dengeki page shows most of them, but it's still fun to do a direct comparison.

The neck has been shortened and reshaped: http://www.mresource...gouki/necks.jpg
The normal and the super angry Awakened head parts: http://www.mresource...gouki/heads.jpg

Other than that to me the biggest and most awesome change is the torso sculpt. It always looked a little iffy to me on the original Rebuild kit, didn't really look like the armor fit together nicely and was a little skinny. The new Rebuild 2.0 Eva torso sculpt is much lovlier. Not side by side comparisons this time because it's more fun to see the changes by opening up the pics in different tabs and flipping between the two versions. Some of these also show the different sculpt of the thighs but the difference really isn't nearly as noticable.

http://www.mresource...ki/torso_01.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/torso_02.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/torso_03.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/torso_04.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/torso_05.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/torso_06.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/torso_07.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/torso_08.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/torso_09.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/torso_10.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/torso_11.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/torso_12.jpg


Then another really obvious change is the arms (included original TV kit just for fun): http://www.mresource...ogouki/arms.jpg
New and old parts: http://www.mresource...ki/trees_01.jpg

That last pic is probably the most interesting to me because with it I finally understand how the hell bandai splits up their molds into both block for design variation and colors. That little defect gives it away, it seems on each side of the mold they have a twistable little part to direct the flow where they want when they want some variation. This new tree also shows that it's been made with Eva-02 in mind. Unlike 00, 01 amd 03, the upped shoulder on 02 are a different color than most of the armor:
http://www.mresource...Shogouki/05.jpg
http://www.mresource...ki/trees_02.jpg

Overall the Awakened Ver. kit is very fun, both flavors of the orange parts even glow unter UV light http://www.mresource...ogouki/glow.jpg

So far in this new lineup of Eva kits we have:

01 - Eva-01 Rebuild 1.0
02 - Eva-00 Rebuild 1.0
03 - Eva-01 Rebuild 2.0 Awakened
04 - Eva-01 Rebuild 2.0 Vanilla
05 - Eva-02 Rebuild 2.0


With the way the new molds are made Bandai could very easily pop out with little effort:
Eva-00 Rebuild 2.0
Eva-03
Eva-04 (like more than a decade ago, chrome the 03 and add the shield from the Pachinko game)

With a little more effort they could do Eva-05, but that might end up almost a 6000 yen kit probably. That's going from Eva-02 being 4500 from only a few extra guns and a jetpack. The massive 4-legged Eva-05 would easily top 5000 for sure.


Some non-spoilerific lineart for 2.0:
http://www.mresource...Shogouki/04.jpg
http://www.mresource...Shogouki/05.jpg
http://www.mresource...Shogouki/06.jpg


Also I'm not quite sure if I've mentioned this earlier, but 2.0 also has Eva-06 which is another simple humanoid. That could be another simple kit for Bandai to pop-out, but I don't really remember that many design details of it other than a visor head. Finally from the trailer for 3.0 we know there is an Eva-08, which also implies and Eva-07 somewhere in the future. Still tons of kits to do, but the wait could be loooooooooooooong.

What Eva figure comes with the best Lance of Longinus?

I'm betting that the new SOC-SPEC Unit 00 does.

Why do I ask? I love that weapon.
