Are you sure the picture isn't distorted? Isn't it supposed to be 16/9 originally?

If it's the case, then by "compressing" the picture the eva looks much more normal, especially when it comes to the legs. All evas have legs like that, and don't say no, I'm closely looking right now at all my SPEC evas, and it's the case.

Whatever the torso is doing, I don't like it.

I'm expecting this thing to pull out the Magorox and Counter Sword at some point. And perhaps to go around "assimilating" previous Evas with its, uh, stinger to receive "upgrades". It also defeats Angels by stabbing them and pumping out their biomass, which has the benefit of increasing its Power Level.

Er...it would be useful for stabbing, yeah, but they should make it longer. Long enough to stab and injure any Angel/enemy but short enough to not hinder the Eva's movement.

Anyway, wouldn't the stinger be useless against Angels with the A.T Field deployed? And if you're trying to "push" it into the Angel's flesh, you're going to have to use a lot of strength to "push" it through the A.T Field. Don't take this the wrong way, though.

Retractable. And prehensile!

That's why you neutralize it first.

Also, Reichu orders Sachiel to start editing down what he quotes, or heads will roll.

Now that I think of it, the only way for the Eva to actually "use" that "stinger" is to actually bend down, butt facing the Angel, then you run backwards and :stab:.

Although, I can think of one more effective use for this weapon if the animators made it so it can move about. So, when the Eva is running forwards, you stick the "stinger" into the Angel's core. And, again, don't take this the wrong way. :P

It probably should be a tail. Because tails do have wonderful combat possibilities.

Dosen't its attena look a little like the Spear of Loginus? It's NOT the spear obviously, but it looks like it.

The crotch spike, I believe, rather than being intended as a weapon is in fact designed to defend against a giant alien cunt punt.

...I still reckon that's just a standard Eva cod-peice, with a slightly pointier design, but meh.

Incidentally, does anyone else think that unit 06 looks like she has a stealth bomber plonked on her head?

No, but it does have some familiarity with the Lockheed Martin F-117A NightHawk. Except it doesn't have a thing sticking up out of its head. :shock:

Now that's what this eva is supposed to look like with the correct ratio:
