Hello guys!

I'm pretty new to this forum and even to the Evangelion franchise but I gotta say I felt in love with everything Eva related ( manga, figures, even the movies *cough cough still liked the show better* ) :wink:

I have a question for you and I didn't find any answer yet... I want to buy myself a model kit for Eva 01 that is not too pricey, and I've come to choose between the Bandai 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone (http://www.amazon.com/Bandai-Hobby-Evangelion-Evangelion-01-Action/dp/B000RHKZL0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1502440760&sr=8-1&keywords=unit+01+bandai) and the Bandai 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003FG64SS/ref=sxbs_sxwds-stvp_3?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=2972357942&pd_rd_wg=LG4R7&pf_rd_r=5WTMKRPTBMFTEVHMA9F5&pf_rd_s=desktop-sx-bottom-slot&pf_rd_t=301&pd_rd_i=B003FG64SS&pd_rd_w=yDFBW&pf_rd_i=eva+unit+01+hg&pd_rd_r=CJCXJJHNFMXQ0ZKT5G01&ie=UTF8&qid=1502441189&sr=3) version.

Both the figures are in the same price range of 40-50 $. The differences that I'm able to see is that the 1.0 version seems to have more accesories and a yellow-ish AT field like in the show and 2.0 one seems somehow more detailed and with a holographic AT field (is there any difference in height? I don't know...). I don't really care to much of other accesories if the figure has the AT field and at least 1 gun + progressive knife... I'm interested in which looks the best on display and which is better at posability * yes yes, I've looked for YT reviews but there are no comparisons...and to be frank, there are almost none 2.0 review videos*
Also...I've heard the 2.0 version has green paint that glows when exposed to UV...is that true?

So...which one should I get?

Thx for your help and sorry for my english, I'm not a native speaker. ^_^

There is a slight difference in torso armor sculpt between the two but as far as posing goes they are identical.
The 1.0 has the Gatling gun, the 2.0 takes it out and gives you AT field effect part. That's about the difference.

Personally I am biased against the Bandai kit because they are nowhere looking like the actual movie design. Bandai just did their own thing.

If you want a model kit that is accurate to the movie design then your only choice is Kotobukiya. It's more expensive, but it's worth it IMO. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10233439

That's actually a very decent price for such an accurate figure, thx for showing it to me ^_^
Too bad it doesn't come with an AT field... but how hard would it be to manually make one out of clear plastic?
