Re: Why has Khara completely abandoned NGE in marketing/merchandising in favor of Rebuild?

Sachi#855266 wrote:There's also the fact that NGE isn't an original Khara property; it was originally produced by Gainax. Khara only somewhat recently acquired the full rights to the original series.


So maybe that's why we're seeing NGE merchandise starting to trickle out little by little?

Re: Why has Khara completely abandoned NGE in marketing/merchandising in favor of Rebuild?

Well I'd say that it's most likely because the Rebuilds are the newest and most current project so it makes more sense for them to push those over anything else at this point in time. They want to make sure the Rebuilds are the ones that people are thinking of right now when they think of anything ...

Why has Khara completely abandoned NGE in marketing/merchandising in favor of Rebuild?

Does Rebuild appeal more to casual audiences? It seems like Khara's trying to push it as the new "definitive" version of the franchise, especially 2.0 which is the most popular of the Rebuild movies; at least the movies are good (unlike say the Star Wars prequels which were treated similar...

Re: Theoretically, would a Western re-release of Eva be better before or after 4.0?

Pretty sure that's Pokemon. Dare I say Eva is really a cult following here. I'm sure if Evangelion was as big as Pokémon in the West, Ganiax et al. would have negotiated a deal. I think they meant that Eva in Japan is as big as Star Wars is in the West. Most Western Eva fans know it's basically a c...

Re: Evangelion Cosplay

So I got another Asuka cosplay done! This time, it's an original design, a "sophisticated punk" sort of look that I thought up for New Year's. http://imgur.com/a/3Yo91 It looks amazing in action. I'm also planning Rei and I kinda want to do a counterpart casual outfit for her too! Probably...

Re: Star Wars

To change the subject, it just occurred to me that Kylo Ren is something of a cerebral deconstruction of Darth Vader fanboys and Vader's status as a beloved cultural icon - just like a lot of real-life nerds, Ren is immature, socially awkward and obsessed with Vader, but in the Star Wars universe, t...

How much would an empty Paul Champagne metal DVD box be worth? I recently nabbed one for $10 (with a few scratches on it) and was wondering about the value.

Re: Official Eva Geeks Convention Events

Not really a convention event, but I'll be holding an Eva fan meetup at a manga cafe near Toronto:

I'm even giving away a free admission pass, drink and dessert to one lucky winner if you like, comment, share (you know, the usual).

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Merchandise 2, or, Why Do I Keep Buying Things!?

I'm really tempted to get the Soul of Chogokin SPEC Eva-02 (XS-08), but it's quite an expensive figure. Any advice on how I can hunt for it cheaply (say 150 CAD or less)? http://static.hlj.com/images/ban/ban951626_0.jpg I've also looked at the original 2003 version (GX-15) and I can get it for cheap...

Re: I've Never Seen A Good Asuka Cosplay

So I ordered this wig to try a more realistic (or at least subdued) hair color for Asuka. Thoughts?

Re: Why separate NGE/Rebuild pages for Asuka but not other characters?

This idea is one that has a lot of potential to be a better one. Instead of dividing up the Rebuilds for Asuka; what about having subforums? Four for the the four films, and in each of those subforums, we have the same format of bringing up theories and chit-chat. This is about the wiki, not the bo...

Re: Why separate NGE/Rebuild pages for Asuka but not other characters?

At the present time, I don't see any reason why separate articles along continuity lines can't or shouldn't be done. It would mostly just require creating additional templates along with the splitting part. If memory serves, the option had been contemplated before, when we had to deal with "se...

Why separate NGE/Rebuild pages for Asuka but not other characters?

Asuka's last name has changed in Rebuild, but other than that, I don't really see why other characters don't have their own separate NGE/Rebuild articles (or likewise, why Soryu and Shikinami don't share an article) - they also have backstories and roles that diverge a lot from the original show, es...
