I... tried... mounting the Entry Plug on an angle. However, interesting things happened as a result:

Image

As you can see, even using Rebuild's 80m Unit-01, both the 12m and 20m Entry Plugs don't just go *over* the location of the Core, they burst straight out of the Evangelion itself... which has some really fun implications for the TV Version's 40m version of an Evangelion come to think of it...

Is there any way the issue of where exactly the Entry Plug occupies the interior of an Evangelion be reconciled with the dimensions of it?

Update: Whoops, forgot to actually display the 10m Entry Plug in that diagram, instead only showing the 12m Plug I was toying with. I have since updated the image to include the 10m Plug and modified the above text to reflect what the image originally showed, and... it just *barely* fits at a 35-degree angle.

After looking at some screencaps, have you tried a 20°-30° angle for the insertion? 35°-45° seems too steep for sure, and the angle could be as shallow as 15° - it's very tough to tell the precise angle from the angles we see of the Entry Plug being inserted.

I think your placement of the entry plug is a bit off. You can see in the gif below that the spinal armor/plug-hole and containment apparatus actually both raises AND rotates just prior to insertion, making the exact placement and angle of the entry plug rather tricky.

Looking frame by frame, and following marks or features on each piece, I see no rotation. There is a sideways shadow movement that might fool you.

Yeah, the plug slot is moving straight up from its locked position, there is no change in angle whatsoever.

Regardless, I feel the placement is a bit off. When I've got a bit more time I'll have a go at my own placement. It is nit picky, but we're discussing the placement and its relation to the core here, nit picking is kind of the name of the game. Keep in mind I'm not trying to criticize CL's job here, I'm trying to get the most accurate result.

^ No, I understand, with the constant size inconsistency, it's difficult to understand how the damn Entry Plug fits in the hole.

I know this is rebuild and not original EoTV, but since we're discussing rebuild sizes too, after a recent rewatch of 3.33, I think the entry plugs are actually the 20m size... at least going off of the Unit-13 insertion sequence. The entry plugs were clearly impossibly large just watching them Here's a not very good picture with part of the plugs cut off from view that shows us how large they are:

So at least when it comes to rebuild, the entry plugs are indeed so large that they could never fit without being converted to LCL or something.
