I was wondering if the Sega Real Model weapons and angels are in scale. I will also be buying some SRM because of nostalgia. They were my first EVAs back in the day and I loved them.


Sega real models are in scale with the Evas of the line (Zeruel is a bit smaller)... I have Zeruel and Sachiel, they are nice, but by no means action figures...
The articulation of the Evas in that line is poor, so I'd go for the Chogokin at that point IF you are willing to sacrifice a bit of screen accuracy for articulation...

Thanks for your reply. I already bought the Chogokin Evas and will likely be adding the angels.

Check Mandarake, they pop in that site once every blue Moon, but will be significantly cheaper that even daring look for them on Ebay...

hey fellas. can anyone give me like some general info on these figures? there's like 0 information beyond the line's name and which characters were released, can't find any reviews or anything. specifically looking at the beserk 01 right now but honestly anything will do. how good are these? looking for a good line of anime evas to collect that aren't the SOCspecs. Ended up getting a revo 004 01 but just wasn't a fan of revo joints so I'm looking for another line.

only really planning to get my favorites, eva-01, eva-02, and the mass production units. maybe a blue 00 if it comes with a spear of longinus

Those are close to statues... Don't take me wrong, but nowadays their only redeeming quality is that they are kinda vintage...
If I recall correctly, only the elbows and knees can bend, wrist motion is limited. Not sure if shoulders move at all. Head, torso and hips are static... They are very close to proportion at the cost of mobility... Eva 00-Blue does come with a Lance of Longinus, but it has this flat section with a hole in the shaft because the hand of the Eva can only hold it with a peg...
If you want them just for display those are fairly good... I can't tell anything about sculpt or paint, I only ever saw one...
Now, if you want something a bit more... Mobile... Bandai models are also accurate, but you have to assemble them (and I think they would be cheaper than the SEGA ones)

To be fair I’m buying them again for nostalgic reasons. I used to have them all but sold them and I’d like to get them back at some point. Articulation is pretty much like every 90s figure: head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, legs and knees. They have good proportions and come with a lot of accessories but they can’t be posed accurately. Anyway I love them because as I said before, they bring me great memories from back in the day and they were the only figures until the Kaiyodo Xebec line came out. If you can get them for cheap then they are a good option. My main collection are the soul of chogokin first releases which are a huge upgrade over the Sega Real models. It’s also worth noting that this is the only action figure line with two angels!

I was impressed by Sachiel Sega Real Model articulations, also Sachiel figure looks higher quality than the rest
