You know those weird "Angels as anime girls" figures? Yeah, I bought one of them. Zeruel, to be precise. Found it at a figure store in here and decided the concept was so silly I had to get it. It's actually a pretty nice looking once you get over the horrible pervertion of all things Evangelion.

I have the Arael one. It's absolutely awesome (except, like many of my lances, they've broken at one point or another lol; nothing super glue won't fix)

I recently got my last splurge for awhile.. the Tsukuda Hobby Unit 00... I thought this thing was Revoltech sized... its not. It's larger than the Kaiyodo Rei / Lance statue by an inch or so. O.o Oh, and it comes with to-scale vampire Rei because shes completely white and has red glowing eyes o.o

Yes that does include the 1.0, 2.0, Hakone as Tokyo 3, and 2.22 UCC cans, doritos, noodle snacks, CANNED BREAD!, fruit juices, potato chips, and the Misato curry ramen, Rei garlic ramen, and Shinji miso soup.

Don't ask how much it all cost, I don't want to think about it....

yesterday, i got the movie realization 01 off of ebay for around $10. today the balljoint on the normal head broke. i cant believe that it was around $40 when it first came out. if it didnt have the nice detailing, it would be a horrid figure, with the ridiculously loose torso ball joint, crooked and jagged sculpt, and the difficulty of getting the pallet rifle into its hands. good thing it was only $10, or else id stay away from movie realization figures forever.
i want rebuild

The brush in question is for cleaning your keyboard, getting dust and other stuff out of it. So at least a keyboard brush has some value/reasoning.

But a bucket?! Wow.

At first I thought it was paint witch would at least have some value. So instead of finishing up 3.0 or putting EoE on blu-ray they give us a bucket.

Was wondering does it give you the pieces to make a regular Eva Unit-01, just keeping the nice neon-red parts to it?

Also if your gonna put it away for a while in a box or such. Try not to keep its arms bent, dug my Rebuild Eva U00 out for a watching of Funi's Eva 1.11 and noticed these splits at the elbows putting them in the slack position... Lucky me the HG Eva line ain't dead so I'll pick up a HG Rebuild Eva 00' when Bandai gets around to it after the Rebuild Eva 02.
