Good job getting all 7. I'm still missing #1 and 4 and haven't bothered to check out the contents personally lol. But I do recall back in the late '90s that a lot of the official artwork floating around online came from these.

Thanks! Currently I'm trying to get a hold of the 3rd screensaver CD to also complete that.

Okay new swag incoming!

Evangelion Anima Vola 1 and 2, along with the Visual Book.

Evangelion Daily Selection:
So a third-party did a series of desktop-accessory CDs, they called it their BGI series (BGI = back ground image).
For one of the entries in the series, they did Evangelion.

My hunch is that this CD is a subset of the official Gainax Collector CDs, as in it recycles items from them.
In which case getting this CD might not even be necessary for the digital-content-focused fan.
I'll compare the files to see how much * new * content there actually is once I get a hold of Gainax screensaver Vol 3.

So this is pretty cool. Back in the 90s, a company made 3D models of Eva Units 01, 02, and 03,
and put them on software CDs.

I was able to nab two Eva Units (but one is still being shipped), and I'm trying to get my hands on the third.

BUT, they didn't stop there. They went on to create 3D models of Rei and Asuka, which look bad with shading on, but lot better with shading off.

I didn't even know the latter two existed until I stumbled upon them by luck.

^Yahoo Japan Auctions?

I love obtaining 20 year old discs which cost ~$50 at the time at a fraction of the price.

Yes!

Some jackass is selling the same CDs on eBay for like $80 - when I can get it from Japan itself for like $8.

I agree with that as I've noticed some website will charge top £1/$1 for Evangelion merchandise, when you can get it way cheaper if you order it through the Japanese sellers on amazon and e bay and japanses auction sites.
Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy.

You mean there are scalpers at Ebay?
Shocker!

Joke aside, I avoid that place like the plague... Mandarake is always my first option...
Also... Those CD's... Can they even run on modern PC's???

Nope, which is another reason the CDs are so cheap.

I use a Mac with VMWare running a Windows 95 image. Setting up the Windows 95 image was a pain since it required archaic patches scattered through forums. I wish I took notes on how to build said image.
