I guess the best thing to do would be to wait until we (hopefully) get a RD Unit 04.

Hmmmmm I was looking at a evo pylon and you might be able to mod it if you want to take a chance.I mean you could use an exzacto knife and shave off the thick part thats pointing outward and then paint the cut part silver.That way it wont be as noticable.I'm sure some people here might have some ideas aswell.

Apparently because they are sold out. They want to refund me for the defect instead. I said send me a right pylon, I don't care if its a 00, 02, or 03 i'll just paint it. A defective Ltd Ed. is ridiculous and someone should be obligated to fix it. Waiting to hear back.

It could work but both sides of the narrow parts aren't symmetrical to begin with so I don't think its worth the risk. I was thinking of making a right pylon mold and just make the right pylon but I don't know what plastic the evas are made from or if that plastic is widely available.

You know that is printed in the underside of the box, right?
ABS or PVC don't seem to be all that rare to me...


In any case, you can just buy another Eva 02 and paint the pylon... In fact, you could make a custom!
Imagine a silver aereal unit for Eva 04!
And all the spare joints you would have!

Use the money they refund to buy another regular Unit with a pylon just to re-paint?

Assuming you don't have to send back the defect.

The plastics may not be rare but are they commercially available and in small quantities to people outside of production facilities?

Hmmm, the custom idea is quite intriguing... if I am to do that I need to find model kit paints to match the colors I'd need. Welp, time to head to the nearest A.C.Moore

A valid option, although a 300 yen refund won't do much xD. You are correct in your assumption my friend.

I'd like to thank you all for your comments and advice. It has all been very helpful :D

Refunding the money for only the defective part? Ouch. At least now I know HLJ has far better customer service in regards to defects compared to amiami.

I received a figure with a broken arm from HLJ once, and they sent me a brand new one free of charge, and told me to keep the defect.

AmiAmi would've sent him another figure free of charge too,but exclusive items are different because they usually sell out and never get restocked.So they can't replace it.Goodluck with mod though I'd just look for a loose evaevo on ebay(since you only need the right pylon)for cheap and repaint that piece.All you need is silver,black,white and metallic red.

Don't even think about it, amazon already don't ship to brazil becouse of mishandle of our post officer brutes and the big number of complains generated, if people start frauding hlj they won't ship here either.

And then...i will carve your heart out. with a spoon. a plastic spoon. a discardable plastic spoon with cute stars and little bears drawings.

How would you like that for your epitaph ?

You would have to pass through my inferi-infested lake and my genetically engineered carnivore plants to get to me...

You could also try and make a resin recast of the left pylon from some other eva and paint it

that way you have the mold if one ever breaks
