If you want them, you better start sacrificing to the modelling gods :irked:

Well, they can do 03 and 04 very easily with just a head swap and recolor. MP Evas would need all new molds from the waist up so that's a much bigger project.

Their main issue is trying to fit the Eva releases in between the million and a half Frame Arms Girls and Megami Device kits. Those are the real money makers.

TBH
Who knows.

Sometimes companies get rights for one or two Evas (usually 01and 02), sometimes for all and they don't produce them if the others are not selling well...
Sometimes they show a prototype but never mass produce it...

Robot Spirits made only the first 4 Evas of Rebuild and nothing more, and Revoltech, known for making and re-releasing their figures left and right, never made some variations of the Q figures...

In short. Who knows.

I KNOW, RIGHT!?!?!? It's almost three times the price of a regular revoltech
I was taken aback by the steep increase of the price as well, they must be justifying it on the scale of the arms, which kinda doesnt make sense, since we got a unit 5 with 4 large limbs and then a couple of evas with HUGE accesories with the shields for regular pricing

Indeed... Revos have been getting more and more expensive, that is to be expected, but still...
Eva 05 was not that more expensive than other contemporary figures in the 2.0 and EvaEvo lineup and Space-heist Evas 02 and 08 were not that expensive either, bulk and all (although those two may get a pass because most of the Eva's body was recycled)

Maybe the sculpt was difficult, maybe production is really complicated, etc. But that price is already on the lower end of a Play Arts Kai!

Now imagine: you buy it and at minute 2:35 it turns out that production changed 1/3 of the Eva for the movie! No thank you! I'll wait :emogendo:

Oh, yeah... That was not up for debate... What I meant was that even taking into account price increases, this particular Revo seems way overpriced...

Materials price has increased for 8 years, this figure is big, and problably only a few units will be made, that also increase the price.

because everything is either made or comes from china. and i'm not talking products but base materials.
