It doesn't look like Super Evangelion to me. To be fair it doesn't look like any Unit 01 I remember, the rhombus on its torso are unique: NGE 01, Rebuild 01 and ANIMA 01 all have V shaped plaques.

It could be a concept or alternate design figure. Tamashii seems to like those. Their SHMA Godzilla 2000 was based on a concept piece, and their Godzilla 1954 figure had an alternate design to the suit, having more realistic proportions, more detail, and less baggy skin.

Or hell, maybe it’s based on an upgraded 01 from 3.0+1.0.

That's what I was thinking. Mark 09 was first shown as an action figure if I remember correctly.

I called it Super Eva because the distinct Yamashita elements from it are in the art (which his name being on the plaque also supports). The squared on the torso armor are there, the fork around the bicep, it's all there in the Super Eva just different colors.

I hightly, highly doubt this will be a movie Eva. They're not gonna put a 100% Yamashita Eva into the last one, it's way too much contrast from previous designs and it won't have anywhere near as elaborate a paint scheme. Yamashita Evas are not in any way friendly to hand drawn animation. While they have been using 3DCG in the movies for the Evas with great success, they also can not possibly abandon the hand drawn portions because the staff will never give up on that.

This'll just be a fancy toy unconnected to the movies.

Oh then it's a bummer but expected, by the way can you share a picture of Super Eva with the rhombus? I can only find it with the normal torso.

Well, it's more like a light blue rhombus with some ears to it https://wiki.evageeks.org/images/5/53/A ... grades.jpg

This is clearly not from ANIMA or from NGE or Rebuild. The plot thickens. :emogendo:

It has elements of the Super Evangelion, Stage II spec and the Final Stage in it but the overall design and silhouette seems much sleeker than its Anima cousins. That's very curious. Maybe some kind of Ultimate Unit 01 hybrid design? :???: It almost looks like it has a second pylon light on each shoulder but I can't tell if that glowing spot is supposed to part of the Eva or part of something in the background.

Those abdominal plates look really weird. The plates themselves are double diamond shaped but the green parts between look like recesses or indentations. What a strange Eva.
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!
