Robot Damashii IS more screen accurate, but they are more expensive, the line-up does not include Evas past 2.0 and half of them are super expensible, hard-to-come-by limited editions.
Revoltechs are a bit cheaper and are re-issued at least once every two years, so there is no shortage of new figures.
Now, neither one of those are figures meant for BRRAP BRRAP, PEW PEW. They are collectibles meant for a certain degree of manipulation, but they are by no means toys meant for someone under 15 (physically or mentally).


The one big advantage that Revos have over RDs is the fact that there are far more models in the series, and (apart from Unit 05), they are all in scale to each other.

It's away! Soon, the Mark 06 will sit on my desk... :nyao:
Also, I'm curious, how good are the Banpresto figures ? From what I've seen, they look like cheap versions of RD (which they probably are), and their Mark 06... well, it's like one of those chinese bootlegs that even the advertising can't make look good.
However, their Units 00,01 and 02 looks okay, and apparently Yui-sama has a mouth articulation, which IMO is something way more practical than an alternate head.

So we're getting two new Eva-01 figures.

The first is an action figure by Medicom Toys, in their MAFEX lineup. Looks to be very nicely articulated and well sculpted, 190mm tall. Maybe this line will actually be fully populated by all the designs for once :P

The other is a static figure from Kaiyodo sculpted by the legendary Akira Tani, being the first entry in his Mechanics Archive line(which should be fucking amazing)

Whoa, the Medicom one looks absolutely sweet. And for once, it's actually affordable!

Define what you mean by "all the designs".
Unit 00/01/02/03/06/08/09/13 maybe
04/05/09 Adam probably not. Let alone Mark.04's

Post pics as soon as they are finished, or else

Yeah, I dont get it either... will definitely buy Revo Eva 13 at least twice (if not three times to repaint into the brief moment of semi-awakened form)... but I am kinda afraid of the Mark.09 Adam head :'D

Something definitely did no expect, a VLOCKer's Eva-01 kit from VOLKS




Main VLOCKer's pages:

As you can see it's basically like Frame Arms and Frame Arms Girls that Kotobukiya does, but the mecha and girl kits are compatible instead of being separate.

Nope. I dont like it that much either, and if Discord convos are anything to go by, Reichu bacomes Rage-chu when she sees it (I'll see myself out for that pun)
Although I do like the design of Type Beta, despite the high heels

That redesign is hideous.

The high heels are at least "cowboy boot" style, and thus the only actually functional kind of high heel I'm aware of. But unless Eva-01 needs to secure her feet in a pair of stirrups -- pretty safe bet that the answer is "no" -- those heels have absolutely no reason to be there.

The heels give a jarringly effete air to the Eva, in my mind.

No you're not, IMO it's not very compatible with the menacing feeling that Evas are supposed to have (sorry toy designers, but I can't decently associate a big monster who rips apart and eat Lovecraftian beings and sometimes causes apocalypse with high heels).
Hey, maybe that's why Evas went berserk through the whole series, they totally didn't cared about the pilots and were just angry because of their figures with high heels. :w00t:

Oh, and I've got a question for veterans. My Revoltech Mark 06 finally arrived, and it's perfectly fine except for two things.
First, the belly rubber piece looks like it's popped out, it looks weird and doesn't fit into the place it's supposed to. I suspect it happenned when I had to remove all those stupid plastic things stuck in the Eva for whatever reason. I'll try to post a picture to make it more clear later.
And second, the torso joint simply doesn't move, which is problematic for posing the figure (duh).

So, did anyone here had the same problems and know how to fix them ?

I'm telling you, the Sahaquiel battle would have been over in 16 seconds...

You can try separating all the sections of the torso and then re-assembling them in their place...
As for the stiff torso... What section? The chest-abs joint or the abs-hips joint? Is the stiffness a by-product of the sections being out of place?

Yeah, I can imagine the Sahaquiel battle with high heels, especially with the "Destiny" track.
DUN DUUUUUN DUN DUN DU* *Evas falls miserably*
In fact, pretty much all battles would've being disastrous (or even more disastrous) with high heels.

After several re-assemblings I managed to kinda fix the first issue. Still not perfect, but it doesn't look awful like before.
As for the joint, it's the chest-abs section and it doesn't look like the sections are out of place, so I think it's a by-product.
