It's weird, Mari's new plugsuit is literally a simple color swap of her 3.0 plugsuit, i don't a reason why they did that (be it in-universe or for merchandising), unless it's a placeholder and she'll have a completely new plugsuit in Shin or be back in the same colors as in 3.0.

Btw good observation with those strings.

A new plugsuit doesn't really make sense if there's not even enough time to fix Eva-08's arms.

Props from me as well for noticing the strings, El Mariachi. I'd been wondering why 08 was just tumbling through the sky... This still leaves the question open of what, if anything, she's supposed to be shooting at. The camera spins around so much it feels kind of weird we see neither the Wunder nor any targets.

BTW, this wasn't immediately obvious to me, so for anyone who didn't notice: the reason for the circular rig is so that the arms can move around the ring. Trailer is so disorienting that it's hard to see this happening, but at points the arms look distinctly closer together or further apart from each other. Kudos to the hubby for pointing this out.

50% chance this "new plugsuit" is just a stand in for temporary animation & they went with that look because it's more of a uniform color - top half is pink, bottom is purple - & requires less detailed animation.
This footage could be two years old or older when the film comes out in 2020. I would be surprised if anything in the footage shown ends up looking like that in the final film.

Looks cool- a bit cumbersome and crappy, but I imagine that has to do with Wille's quick improvising. Hard to guess whether this footage is even going to make it into the final cut- feels really showcase-y and superfluous.

Still pumped about the film, but who even knows when the dub will see the light of day...

I think regarding plug suits sense isn't a priority for them anymore, and I'd agree with that.
I actually prefer this one to any plug suit Mari has had prior :P

the reason for the circular rig is so that the arms can move around the ring.

I thought I was imagining this lol

Maybe spinning robo arms are what they needed in that moment and not a simple quick fix.

Being a British girl, Mari has probably never experienced the unbridled joy of endless weapon ownership. (Something she’s clearly into, given her reaction to weapons in both Ha and Q.) Now that she’s an Eva pilot and most of the world is now open, unpopulated spaces, I like to imagine this is simply what she does on a Saturday afternoon.

It's a trailer produced purely on it's own. Khara's 2nd twitter made that pretty clear by saying the "Shin Eva Special Report/Trailer" has it's own staff and listing them by name.

This was already stated on this forum but seems to have gotten lost in the mess of threads.

Seeing that 02 is now missing a good 70% of it's body, there isn't any logic for taking 08's to graft them on 02, especially since the later already has a port for replacing the missing left arm with a robot arm.

I think this really fits her.

I actually like this design. IMO it goes with the idea that the end is near and the time of Evas ending. Kinda like in the original series where they were fewer Evas at the end and Nerv had to scrap the original Units 05 and 06 to have spare pieces.

Oh shit, I just noticed something. You know how in 2.22 (or is it 1.11?) when the NERV staff is walking through a bright grey-white corridor with Unit 01 on their left being circled by huge hoops? I wonder if one of those hoops was used as the big circle that attaches Unit 08's loader arms to the body.

The obvious explaination would be that Unit 08 isn't falling but flying and that the Wunder is nearby. Is the scene supposed to be a defense from an attack of some sort? Maybe from some Mark.04A? (the one that can fly powered by an AT Field)

I guess that a possible scenario is Gendo attacking the Wunder fleet using some Mark.04A a short period of time after the events of 3.0, and a quickly fixed Unit 08 sent out to defend the fleet. A rifle was strong enough to stop the Mark.04A in space so Unit 08 would be equipped well enough I'd say.

I also tought they were wingtip vortex but it doesn't really seems logical for that to disappear depending on the angle

Because... you are a puppet.
I've reached a point where I just generally don't give a fuck anymore. In a good way.

Improvised Combat Configuration is self explanatory, now we only need to know what is Mari fighiting.


July 2017 is when they made the 3D model of it?
