Metal Build figures are always a new design for the sake of having a new design to sell a toy. This has nothing to do with the movies.

Yeah... with the release date in 2020 I started to lose hope that this was related

Looks like it has a lot of small fiddly bits that would be easy to break. Definitely not a figure for me. :lol:
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Lots of pics here:

Seems to me that it's kind of "pro-doujin-in-sculptural-form", with the pro in this case being Yamashita himself.
I'm thinking it's been a while since I bought an Eva figure, so I'm about due.
I just wish it were in the 12 inch height range instead of the 8 inch range.
The size issue risks breaking the deal for me. It's only about the size of my MG Hyaku Shiki.
At least it's bigger than a Revoltech, though.

Torso reminds me a little of these designs from a doujin by Chocolate Shop.
