I think that's a safe bet, resculpt it's shoulder pylons, clour the sucker white, maybe throw in a new head an you're away. Same goes for unit 09.

The Eva 13 above is not a revoltech... They didn't bothered in including the Dummy Plug head


Yeah that's what I'm a bit curious about. I edited the post with a sort of disclaimer, it seems that the original poster on /toy/ wasn't sure as to where it came from, but people were in agreement that it was a Revo due to the joints. Regardless, it looks almost 1/1 to the Revoltech photo's we have minus gloss. It's possibly the prototype or a garage kit.

Hmmm... On a second grancle you may be correct...

I think the abdomen confused me (I mean, it's too good for a Revo XD )
We'll see when it arrives...

And now that I brought it up, why is there not a Dummy Plug head? I mean, they only had to do another one with red eyes

Gonna be honest, I actually kinda preferred the slightly glossy finish on the stock photos. A gloss finish isn't an intrinsically bad thing (the Soul of Chogokin SPEC figures had a nice, shiny finish and they looked great) but some of the older Revoltechs look like they've been dipped in wax.

That's the main problem (The waxy, slimy finish). Being a big fan of miniature painting, something a lot of painters try to steer clear of with smaller, detailed pieces is a slimy finish as it really knocks detail out of the model.

In the Revo's case, this worked in their favour as the older ones had some really BAD sculpts (Not saying they're bad models, I've got a load of them and still have fun posing them). Unit-01 has not had a good Revo head yet. The RD's have a slight shine to them, but have less to hide behind the glossy sheen.

The 13 above looks like a huge improvement in sculpt and is complimented by the very lightly shined finish.

TL;DR Gloss does a great job of hiding the odd imperfection. It allows the figures to remain cheaper, too. The Soul of Chogokin line is special in that it can be taken apart, meaning some parts are matte and the armour is glossy (Although I'd say it's more satin). Gives it a strange but more interesting effect. The RAH Unit-01 is almost completely matte, but seems a little satin.

The revoltech line is kinda inconsistent quality-wise. The early evas (and even mark.06...) look absolutely awful, and some other figures from the line, i.e. the hokuto no ken ones, are absolutely incredible and have no equivalent.

Maybe it depends on the guy who sculpts them, I don't know.

Amen to that. I am a modeler myself, and am currently (very slowly) building a Tyranid army. I give all my models a gloss varnish coating, for 3 reasons:

1: I want them to look slimy and waxy, like enormous insects, or like the Xenomorphs from Alien.
2: It protects the paint from hard knocks.
3: My highlighting can be a tad sloppy, and the gloss helps make up for the occassionally sub-par painting (There's so many of the little buggers to paint it would take far too long to paint each one impeccably, so a I aim for a "tabletop" standard with the varnish making them look a lot better).

Also, is this the original Unit 01 Revoltech? 'Cause this looks pretty good.

I've noticed it too, also compare the new Unit-02 with some of the sculpts from just 2 years ago and there's a huge difference in quality apparent even from marketing pictures. Is there any indication that it is a different sculptor?

I've had a ARX-8 Laevatein from Full Metal Panic for a few years, it's a beautiful sculpt and one of the best Revo's I've owned, it's completely matte finish and the parts are all intricate as can be. Compared to some of my Eva's, it's practically impossible to tell it's from the same toy manufacturer.

It's a strange decision from the start in that the Eva's show very little evidence of gloss in the show/movies compared to something like Arm Slaves.

You know, that's when I look at a the model that I realize how much it don't looks like a ship : seriously show this photography to anyone who didn't saw 3.0, and he will probably reply that this is a 1:1 scale reproduction of a cyborg bird, surely from a movie where it's used to spy... and then try to tell them that it's actually a giant flying battleship!

I did not see that coming at all, but I like it.

Literally just received my RAH Unit-01 Awakening version. Was lucky to grab one on ebay, a bunch appeared on 3.33's release day.

I'm not too sure about the Beta design. The sleeves make her look like she's wearing a puffy winter jacket (actually, an Evangelion-versus-Angel snowball fight would be awesome) and her stomach armour looks...odd. I think I preferred the V-shaped armour segments.

Still a nice figure though.

(please bear in mind I have only seen a shitty camrip of 3.0, so I couldn't really tell what Unit 08b looked like)

Unit 8b is looking pretty awesome. Definitely picking that one up. Now all the collection needs is unit 00 and mark 06. Then my shelves would look MAJESTIC. However, if Medicom opted for mark 09 instead of unit 00, I'd be crushed.


...but then I'd probably get over it because that scythe is mighty sexy.

RAH Neo Eva Unit-02 delay to end of June...
Reply with quote

So unfortunately the RAH Neo Eva Unit-02 has been pushed back to Late June for release.

In the mean time the next figure in the RAH Neo line has been previewed and announced, check it out here. Now just waiting to see if Medicom copies what they did with Awakened Unit-01, and reveal RAH Neo Eva Unit-00 or my RAH Neo Eva Unit-03 as WonFes Summer exclusives the month before the event...

I must say, it's an odd choice to pick 8b instead of 2b or 13.

It's the easy choice.

2beta is old body with a new arm+half head, so mostly rehash.
2gamma is same body as this but multiple sets of the right arm.

Putting this out first lets you test the new body without having the imbalance of different arms and asymmetrical head affecting your judgement.

I wanted to buy RAH unit 01 and 02 but it's out of stock everywhere and the prices are insane

I didn't know they released an awakened unit 01.

If some of you guys have good plans to acquire them, please share.

BTW, for those who already know what happens in 3.0, a couple of questions (please answer as spoiler-free as possible)
Spoiler:


-Does Mark 6 do something?
-Do they even mention Evas 07, 10, 11 or 12?



Spoiler:

- Kinda
- No
