^Could please replace that 638px × 972px with a smaller image, InstrumentalityOne, or at least spoiler it for courtesy since it isn't Evangelion-related.

I almost forgot: new 2.xx Jigsaw Puzzles are up at Gainax Shop. There are four 500-piece puzzles; one of miso-soup Rei, one of blushing a Asuka, one of pink plug suit Mari, and one of Unit 01. Finally, there is a larger puzzle of Pen-Pen, Rei, Asuka and Mari, and a puzzle of Pilots and Evangelions.

Just received the E-mono catalog that has a disturbing amount of Eva goods in it. It would take an entire day to look through it page by page... My favorite I saw was the Evangelion AV switcher for your TV... Thanks for the heads up, EvaMonkey.

spent about ¥4000+ on a day trip to Evangelion World at Fujikyu Highlands Amusement park for me and the missus on Valentines day... then added an extra ¥1000 to get a photo of myself in a seat of the soul and another ¥500 to get little Japanese photo box thingies with Eva World themed backgrounds...

WORTH IT!!!

Also, new 1.0 and 2.0 postcards. I prefer the 1.0 cards, specifically the Adam + Kaworu, the Unit 01 and the Rei cards.

Watermelon flavored buns in a Kaji themed package.

If i made out Google Translate's gibberish correctly, it's only sold in the Hakone region a propos some contest. Still, somewhat cool.

Kaji's expression makes it especially hilarious.

He probably meant Shikinami, not that guy who can see death.

Bah. I am pitifully weak. I just got an iPhone, and the first thing I look for is an Eva-themed case. So what happens? I go [url=http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170608989243[/url]here[/url] and buy, buy buy.

Ah well. At least the Asuka-themed wallpaper cost me nothing.

I just pre-ordered this since the hardcase for my PSP-3000 has seen better days:

http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/goods/goods_detail.html?KEY=NEOGDS-38743

They also have them in black and red, not just white. If you want to preorder, the deadline's at the end of the month.

Looks pretty good, honestly. I might order that in black. >>

The merch I own?
Just the Rebuild movies, a Nerv logo decal to promote 2.22 (that came with my copy of 2.22) and the EvaEvo 01 & 02 come the 30th. I hope to get the platinum edition boxset, Der Mond, The Day of Second Impact CD, Capmus Apocalypse, and the main manga as well.

Saw some of the RAH figures, goddamn I wish I had money like that to blow. Kamen Rider Black and the Children in the same scale. Considering those are two of my favorite series, that's pretty damn cool.
