Though I understand this thread is generally intended for content about premium Evangelion figures, the following is technically a 'figure', so I thought I'd post it in this thread rather than make a new one.

Funko, the company responsible for the POP! Vinyl figure craze has obtained the license for Evangelion POP! figures, as amongst their announcements for their San Diegeo Comic Con (SDCC) Exclusives is a POP! vinyl figure of Asuka depicted in her School Uniform.

I feel this is a good figure for Asuka (I don't think they could've captured the character as well with the figures they were putting out in 2015, POPs have improved in the last 2-3 years), and I anticipate it'll see a wider release after SDCC as a Summer 2019 stickered exclusive. I think the most interesting thing about it that the logo on the box is for Neon Genesis Evangelion rather than the new films - one could read that this and any future POP figures are part of a classic Evangelion line rather than a Rebuild line, though as their site doesn't specify if it is Soryu or Shikinami - I am leaning towards interpreting this first Asuka as inspired from the series rather than from the films.

I've not seen announcements of any other Evangelion POP! Vinyl figures at this point, though it's a safe wager that Funko obtained the license for most of the characters and is just releasing this one first on its own to gauge interest in it. Or, they could've gotten the license on similar terms to the Pokemon license, and are releasing the characters slowly rather than in a row so as to not drown out product from other licensed companies. I've only read listing on the Funko site and Poppriceguide, so I've not seen what other people are speculating about the license or future releases.

Also, the timing of this release is rather good, given the series goes live on Netflix in a few days ... anyhow, the Promised Time Has Come, NGE POP! vinyl figures are a reality, and if the Asuka POP! looks as good in person as it does in the picture they will probably get my money for one.

Edit (amendment): the Asuka seeing a wider release outside of SDCC. It's apparently Hot Topic store exclusive in North America (at least according to the Funko site), though EB Games/Zing and similar specialty stores in Australia & New Zealand will probably stock them as well.

Yes it is, and it is welcome in this den of madness...

To be honest I'm not a fan of those figures... I just don't see the appeal... But I do find interesting that they started with Asuka instead of Rei...

I'm sorry, but this has to be the single BEST "berserk" or "insert catchy name for it" mode change I've seen for Unit 02.

It's strongly reminiscent of how it looks in NGE, but the head has been slightly reconfigured so the armor splits more logically and makes it possible for the eyes to exist along with the mouth, since the lower set of eyes would literally have to be part of the upper jaw the way it was originally drawn in NGE.

Hey all, I got the HG LM final Version of the MP Eva, but I’m curious as to if anyone has experimented with previous Eva Kita by taking off the arm piece that sticks out, and also what is the best way to matte coat the rubber/latex head?

Also has anyone tried to modify the regular MP Eva kit to give it bending arms?

What about titty-ten? ~ Reichu

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu

This ^^

Also, it looks like the Metalbuild Evangelion figures are combining elements of NGE, Anima, and the Rebuilds.
Unit 02 alone has the armor from Anima, all three versions of its progressive knives from NGE, Anima, and Rebuild, the Anima rifles and the "Active/Berserk" mode from NGE with a few tweaks.

All-in-all, they're a great combination of all three aesthetic designs.

I believe the shoulder joints may be compatible with the bending arms from the Bandai HG Rebuild kits, but I'm not entirely certain. I was thinking of trying that mod myself but never got around to doing it. That, and the LMHG kits are just way too low quality compared to the HG Rebuild kits, sadly.

Here's the website for Metal Build Unit-02. Though the preorders for it have long sold out.

Apparently every retailer website sold out of the Metalbuild Unit 02 within 60 seconds of preorders going online. It's looking like people/sellers were using bots to buy up all the preorders so they can hold them and then charge a 200%+ markup once it's released.

Talk about tossing the bird at the fandom of a long-running series/movies. :irked:

Same thing happened with the RAH Neo Unit 00. Can't find that anywhere for less than $1000.

So I hope this is alright to post here but I've been doing some small Youtube videos of some of my recent Eva figures I've gotten from the Parfom range. They're really nice figure, got some good articulation, nice number of additional items and I really like the stands for them, especially how they slot together with others in the range. ^_^

Can you even do that???
This is one of the reasons I don't go for premium figures... They are on a whole other level of douchebagness... At least Revos are re-released once in a while...

For those that like I, have issues with "sticky" Revoltech figures, I made a video about how to clean them up.
Should also work with any type of PVC figure...
