I thought the same thing at first too until I saw the copyright on the bottom was 2003. It's based on what she wore when she went to the laundromat in Episode 11, right before that giant spider attacked Tokyo-3. She even has a shirt in that bag of hers.
Nonetheless, the Yamashita scene is great. :kawaii:

So, if the Shinji figurine is the one commemorating the end of the manga, that mean we have a character from each of the main continuities here! :D

So, really then, it'll smell of angst and nervous sweat and maybe just a hint of blood (on account of LCL)?

Meh, I can think of worse things to smell like. Still beats being passed by every other douchebag smelling like he just doused himself in a can of Axe or Old Spice, at least. :lol:

Each character is going to get their own clothing line.

Does anyone understand how The Beats has any relation to Eva and can explain it? Shinji's SDAT? Or is it something that was concocted by Radio Eva?

Not "Beats" - it's "The Beast" (mirrored), in the style of "The Beatles" - a joke or a pun, you might say.

I think another reason the (now old) shirt is backwards is to reference how The Beast is a secret inverted mode, but maybe that's a stretch. -o-;

I'd totally wear one just because it references both Beatles and Eva--if only they weren't so expensive.

Those clothing collections are actually pretty nice looking. Very classy for Eva merchandise.

Still, the lack of Shinji (and the use of the wrong Asuka) is disappointing. I guess emotionally vulnerable, clingy young boys just don't move product. Maybe they'd have more luck selling him if they targetted the Jousei market- everybody knows that elegant older women love shotas.

The wrong Asuka (and Rei) are probably because a scarred constantly grumpy girl and another with a very limited emotional range doesn't exactly constitute selling material for clothes, especially since they weren't seen wearing anything but their plugsuit!

As for Shinji, remember that the campaign isn't over yet, Mari too don't have her own line yet.

Here's the Asuka commission I got from Tu Bui at Big Wow Comicfest last month.

You know, I'm kinda surprised they didn't put Asuka's cathat, red jacket, or her casual outfit from 2.0 in there.

Unauthorized, cheap-ass trinkets used to try and make money off the uninformed fans that want literally anything related to what they like? Of course it's real. Go to literally any con and see.

Okay, these aren't 100% Eva related but they're too hilarious not to share:

Who wants a keychain?

It's tiny so it's cute!

I wonder if Director-kun's [s]Anno's[/s] weirded out or amused at having merchandise featuring him?

Well, they made an action figure of him not too long ago. I wouldn't be surprised if he owns one. And plays with it.

I thought the second link was just a tiny version of that action figure. But that wouldn't surprise me at all. :lol:
