As far as I know there isn't clear sculptable epoxy, so yeah recasting would be necessary.

There's translucent 3D printing materials as well as clear stuff you can CNC, but that requires sculpting in the computer first :3

Bugger. Oh well, I'd better invest in a casting setup when I get Squigger's Figures EmporiumTM up and running, though that would be a necessity anyway.

Sadly, 3D printed translucent materials aren't very translucent at all- they let light through but they're not very clear. One could theoretically sand down the "stepping" and then buff it with polishing compound, but I'm not sure if the material itself is clear enough for it to work.

Also, as you mention, the horrors of computer sculpting. And I say that as a big fan of Shapeways.
Here lies Squigsquasher.

Aww. I was kinda hoping they were making actual Mechagodzilla kits molded in Eva colours (or with optional Eva inspired parts) rather than just molding the Eva kits in Godzilla colours. Serves me right for not paying attention. Still, pretty cool.

In other news, I've been inspecting the priming job I did on a few of the Unit 01 parts and ehhhhhhhhh. It's MOSTLY OK, but there's a few bits where for some bizarre reason it went lumpy- not orange peel, but like there were bits of something in the paint (which is weird as it was from a can). Hopefully I can get some very fine grit sandpaper from somewhere (my current sandpaper is fairly fine, but at the end of the day it was from a DIY store and as such is a bit too coarse for smoothing out primer) and sand down the primer to a smoother finish. On the plus side I have a pot of Mr. Surfacer 1200 and a shiny new airbrush, so once I finally have an actual setup for using it I can possibly reprime the dodgy bits without having to use spray cans. I hate spray cans.

Godzilla doesn't really have kits, unless you count the really old resin and vinyl ones.

It does have very expensive complete toys though, and they did make Eva-recolors:
https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B01LXDTW03/
https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B01LY196BP/

As far as sandpaper goes I'd recommend going to the automotive section/store vs the DIY or harware one.

I really prefer the silicone carbide waterproof sandpaper because it comes in much finer grits and I wet sand all the time to keep the dust levels down.

Aluminim oxide sandpaper rarely comes above 320 grit around here and just fall apart.

Kaiyodo recently reissued many of their old vinyl Godzilla kits, they are available on Hobby Link Japan.

I like the Evangelion popcorn buckets but I'm not too sure you can put a lot of popcorn into them. The mouths don't look that big IMHO.

Though the jaws open they are purely for show along with the flashing eyes as popcorn goes inside the head cavity :D

I love it, especially the big head. Would be perfect if it was in full color.

Sachi, that's a primed prototype. They're pretty much always primed in grey. Painted sample will come along later.

Also announced is a thicc version of Rei Q as imagined by Shinya Yamashita. Strange that the figure is not from Kotobukiya because they've had a looooooooooong relationship with Shinya.

Image



Kotobukiya TV Eva is really good news, but I'm annoyed they're boosting the price of the kit by including the stupid cloak since that's a lot of plastic I'd rather not be paying for.

Image


Also kinda hilarious it got announced with the cloak now because just earlier this week I started contemplating scratch building a 1/700 scale diorama of the panned shot atop the destroyer and gathering reference: http://i.imgur.com/PEVqWLa.jpg

Either way, I think I'll repeat the mistakes of my past and set the date of the release of the new Eva-02 kit as the finish by date for all my old Eva-02 kits....







EDIT: Oh look a KawoShin set instead of the girls for once:




EDIT 2: In the same Parfom line as the above Eva-01 we're getting Asuka and Rei:

^ those are a bit in The Uncanny Valley for me. They are not chibi enough to be cute, and not in the style the series enough to be sexy.

So I will say unit one with a big head is hilarious.

It's the Godzilla/Evangelion crossover thing. Rei's dressed like an Xilien (it's from Godzilla). However, I don't remember the Xiliens ever wearing that sort of ridiculous footwear.

Nether do I, I mean the models epic but that footwear looks like it was stolen from a female leprechaun....
