From Feb 27th to March 3rd there will be a VFX-JAPAN Events. A few familiar faces are showing up.
Studio Khara will have their own talk on March 1st, represented by CGI Producer Heishi Shuichi (瓶子修一) and CGI Director Hiroyasu Kobayashi (小林浩康)
Tetsuo Ohya (大屋哲男) (of Picture Element see above CG World article) and Shinji Higuchi will also be present for a session on Feb 28th.
This will clearly have nothing at all to do with or even a mention of Final. We'll probably never even hear of the results. But at least it's nice Khara is getting near constant attention for their CG work. They also got into yet another CG World magazine issue, Feb 2014, vol.186.

Since I can't into moon the most interesting thing to note here is what is possibly an image designed to fuck with our heads.
That is Eva-02'γ wielding the Spear of Cassius, which should be impossible as far as we know.
That is definitively NOT 8+2. That is 02'γ. The Eva in the image has the robo arm for the left, and a skinny flesh arm for the right. 8+2 has two fleshy arms with puffy forearms because it it just a repainted 08. For reference: 8+2 http://i.minus.com/iek9JRAriL6Uy.png . The head is also perfectly clear and doesn't have any 08 parts. That is without any shadow of a doubt 02'γ.
As far as Q tells us, 02 was retrofitted into 'γ after Shinji was retrieved. The movie also shows us that it was destroyed at the end. That leaves en incredibly tiny window for 02'γ to exist and pretty much nothing in the plot to allow the opportunity for it to wield a Cassius spear.
The most obvious explanation for this image is that it's just something put together for the presentation and has nothing to do with the plot, but...
