From Minna no Eva fan.

新2号機 = New Unit 2

The design looks very Yamashita with many details and it generally looks more menacing than usual. It's a very good looking Eva.

I'm not sure if it is slightly pink or is just the way it's colored but I really dig the design anyway.

We went from an Eva that looked like two evas stiched together vertically. To an eva with a head that looks like two heads were chopped vertically and put one on top of the other.

I don't know if it's the artist style but that reminds me way more of a fusion of Unit-2 and Unit-3 than 02+08.

The only thing that really invokes Unit 08 there is the ear thingy between the eyes and the spiked on the back of the jaw. Might be an entirely new build for Unit 02!
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Solid!

People flipped out about the very cheap looking Two-Face Evangelion from the teaser at the end of 3.0 but I could always tell that was just a temp model for the teaser.

Should be an interesting Evangelion in the film. Possibly a dual piloted Unit with Asuka & Mari.

I can't shake the feeling I've seen something similar to this design before. One of the Anima versions of Unit 02, maybe?

The look feels extremely familiar to me, too, but I just can't place it.

Either way, if this is the "merged" Eva 08+02, I love it. Great stuff all around!

The day of Vengeance and Truth comes closer with every news we get to 3.0+1.0. The valkyrie and the force of nature must strengthen their bond to unleash carnage and horror on their mortal foes with Eva 8+2. The design of the Eva has the typical characteristics of their former evas and I do think it has the matching color paterns.
I carry out things right to the end. No. Matter. What.

I hoped for a reveal of the English title, but this design is so awesome, I can't complain.

I think I know what it is. It looks like Unit 02 fused with Eva Mark.06. The crests on the backs of the head, the jaws, the nose piece with the "scar" marks on them. That's really cool.

So the Eva is called "新2号機" probably, in english "New Unit 2" acording to Google Translate.

Apparently the first kanji (新) is "shin", so the movie is called "Shin Evangelion" and there is a "Shin Evangelion" in it.

This is the second time Anno has drawn a revamped version of Unit 02 for the lantern festival. The first was back in 2011, a little over a year before 3.0 would be released.

I think we're on track for a Fall 2018 release.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

I feel that much closer to the man and the myth, Anno, knowing that we share a love for best girl and her Eva. Unit 02 has been my long time favorite, and I love seeing it revamped over and over.

I manually checked the colors with Photoshop and it appears to be full pink, there were some spots in the shadows that seemed red but they were just more intense pink.

Could just be Anno's muted color style when it comes to these festivals. The previous years' illustrations were equally as muted and minimalistic.

Unit 02 seemed more red to me back in 2011:

EDIT: nevermind, it was just my eyes playing tricks on me, Unit 02 from 2011 is pretty much equally pink:

Well, that new "Super" Eva 02 could indicate that there will be at least a minor time skip during Shin Eva, as I doubt that regrowing most of an Eva and refurbishing it with new armor can be done in a couple of days.

Hopefully enough time for Shinji to visit a therapist/get a fair trial.
