Bandai Unit 01

Postby Dartz » Mon Jun 07, 2010 12:52 pm

Bought this in London, took about 4 days to build. Quite pleased with the results I am, even if the camera's shite. It's the original-series version, not the new movie edition formally known as rebuild version.

Image

It's painted, rather than just using the base plastic colours. I used a darker purple, and a much more neon green to get a nice contrast, rather than the lighter colours used in the original series. The effect is similar to the Rebuild Unit 01, and I really think that looks nice...

Is this the high grade?

I've been doing some gunpla-ing recently and I think I am ready to get the glossy perfect grade Eva as a summer project.

i heard that the perfect grade is ridiculous to get the limbs into the rubber frame, and being the first prefect grade bandai kit, isn't very great compared to modern kits.

i dislike the rubber joints on the eva kits. limits posability, tears, and the plastic joints inside could break. that's what happened to my nge 01, so i cut out the entire elbow and replaced it with some ratcheting lego joint.

for the topic: it looks like it's built well, but the purple, orange, and blue are too dark and glossy imo. makes it look like a knock off. i think it'd look better if it were a more barney-ish purple, but that's just me. other than that good job painting.
i want rebuild

A chunk of that, is because I wanted the orange and green to stand out, and they were the only colours I could get my hands on. The other chunk, is that I really didn't like the light purple. Most of the gloss, is from the flash.. and a varnish I used to stop the paint being stripped.

I actually think the rubber arms are quite cool... they do limit poseabilty, but the trade off is that they look pretty good on the model. It was an interesting thing for them to do, and so far it hasn't broken.

It is the high grade model... they didn't have a perfect grade one (They didn't have any perfects, actually.. and only a smattering of Masters). I don't normally do gunpla's... normally I build 40k mini's and the like.

My old 00 broke there too, but my awakening ver 01 has a sturdier peg, I dont see it braking any time soon.
Also the eva 00 was the first eva revoltech and the #005 of the line.

He problably couldnt take the shame of ruining his revoltech and sepakku'ed himself.
Or he is a jerk who just wanted some info to solve his problem.
Or he is quite busy and more of a lurker.

ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

pardon my ignorance, but what's the spear in Lillith's other hand? I know the one on the left is the LoL, but I'm uncertain on the other object.

That, good friend, is the Esoteric Steak Knife of Longinus, or ESKoL. According to the CI files, Lilith used it to teach her progeny how to properly use dinner utensils, but it was completely dissolved in a storm of acidic putrescence when she used it to pop a massive boil on her ass.

Let us confine ourselves to simple evidence: through thoughtfulness, gentleness, concern for the feelings of others we saddle our own pleasure with restrictions, and make this sacrifice to obtain a doubtful result." -The Divine Marquis

Theres just something about spending an entire series nailed to a cross that just seems to make Lilith a bad character to make into an action figure.

What we should really be concerned about is the lack of action figures based on the Angels. Our Eva figures need something to fight against instead of having them fight each other.

It just occurred to me that a Stretch Armstrong-like Lilith figure would be really cool. She could come with her own little cross and her hands and a piece of her torso could be either spongy or clay-like, so after you're done stretching her, you could crucify and skew her. Also, you should make her head removable, and she should come with a second Rei head you could attach. Her torso would also be malleable enough that you could mold her flab into tits. Actually, instead of giving her clay hands, you could just slip the little plastic nails through two anatomically correct Chamber of Guffs.

Come on, there's so much to work with here!

I second the motion! Though, I don't doubt that some one at Gainax's merchandising dept hasn't already come up with this plan.

I would love a figurine or sculpture of EoE Rei/Lilith hybrid, complete with all 12 wings, I would be so happy.
