I saw it too... And it was an auction starting at that...
As far as I dared to follow it (not bidding, just window shopping) it was around 56 bucks...
I guess it ended in a soul selled to the Dark Sandwich...
EDIT: I found two of those:
One at $25
One at $40

But I read in an online review that that Sachi was stiff 'cuz the rubber body made hard for the inner skeleton to hold a pose before returning to it's old shape...

A Zeruelmodel kit in $13 (someone buy it! quickly)


@Evangelion 01
I found this Sachiel on Evilbay... 5 bucks ain't much, dunno if it's posable or not...

Edit again (it's bad not to be in school yet XD)

I'd like to buy that figure just for the core!

But what is supposed to be that blue transparent thing with the black-green tails?

Blue thing is the suport, the fangs, are the spikes the angel toss at eva-02 in the movie.

if you just want a core, buy some kid marble balls, and paint it carmine

Yeah.....the core is nice....but i certainly wouldnt want to get this figure just for the core. Now however, if this Unit 02 came with the torso of Sahaquiel with the core attached....then yes, that would be considered a worthy buy.

However, it doesnt. In my eyes the Robot Damashi Eva Unit 02 is still better than this Revoltech. In sculpt and poseability. Paint job may still turn out sloppy with this Revoltech. A shame.

Indeed... Then again what about the knife unfolding pylons or the needle launcher pylon...
Unit 00 should come with the missile at the very least...

I have that opinion too, of all the Revo Vs Damashii issue; but as for variety, Revoltech wins over 30 to 6...

We have assumed that from the photos, maybe they managed to make a figure that glossy without having it melting... We still need to have the figure (and since this Eva 01 and Unit 02 will be bought directly rather than ordered through an Anime store, I bet I'll be the last one in the thread to get it...)

That new Eva Unit-02 that Arael posted has shown up on the Gainax Official Shop Side Eva overnight. I'd share a link, sadly the shop site still doesn't like direct page links. So instead, here's a bit of Japanese copypasta, some photos, and a price in yen.

Nice one EvangelionFan! Still skeptical on how much the articulation on the figure has improved since the last version. At least they returned to using the flat red colour instead of giving us a metallic red.

At this point im wouldnt rush out to buy this when it comes out, but again i wouldnt mind accepting it as a free gift if anyone gives one to me. :toothy:

There is a review of the new revoltech Eva Evo unit 01 here:

http://blog.livedoor.jp/hacchaka/archives/51659079.html

I must say, damn, Kaiyodo really ímproved the mold here, I'll go as far as to say that it is serious competition to the RD line, if I hadn't any eva I think I would buy the revoltech one o ver the RD just for the extras alone.

Yay!
They payment invoice from Amiami came last night!
It was $15 cheaper that it would have been at the anime store!

I got the "payment received" mail today, now just waiting for it to arrive :D
The Zeruel figure track says that it left the US already, but the Mexico tracker doesn't have it yet...

EDIT [just watched the review mentioned above]

WTF!? :hide:
Can RD do that? :cringe:

Yes the damashii can do that, i just don't know if the head will go that far, since the neck joint is kinda fixed in a low angle.

oh and about official, i mod my toys cloth myth radamanthys and sorento didn't come with the original anime colour, so i changed them

Why would you mod Sorrento? He came in anime colors, and Radamanthys was a mix of anime and manga but still it looked good.

I wouldn't dare to touch any of my myth cloths, if I screwed anything or didn't like the end result I'd kill myself because I can't afford to buy them again.

@Arael - it's the angle

@shinnies,
SPOILER: Show
do a quick google for sorento, bandai wronged the hair colour also the wings and mask were silver instead of gold as they should be, i also changed lion helmet and legs to yelish orange like the anime.
I also trained in my old saint seiya diecast before touching the myths, i'm not crazy, i'm a perfectionist. And no i know how much diecast are worth today, mine were ruined anyway and missing parts


And before a mod look at me angrily,at least with eva 02 they improved the head sculpt,eva 01 either is the same or got worse.

I see, still I wouldn't dare, but props to you, they don't look bad at all.

And back to the topic, I'm kinda exited to see if the beast will get the same treatment, or if units 00 and 03 will be normal releases. Also is this a teaser that the new movie is coming soon? Aside of Kayiodo milking the cash cow I think rebuild 3.0 is near.
