Damn it! This actually looks pretty damn sweet :/ and I was so against the idea of this when I saw the preview at the end of 3.0. But come on if they are making a figure of this and there's no way of knowing that it will be in 4.0 then surely they have to make a code777 unit 02.

But because im a completest and eva nut I will be getting this, oh and why dose the unit 02 half get the correct colours on the shoulder when the 08 half dose not and neither did either of their separate releases, just weird :/

oh i hope 8+2 doesnt really look like that in 4.0. Unit 8 wasnt damaged that much, and poor nigoki just needs to be retired on a farm for a peaceful life.
i'll still buy the figure, silly or not. plus it comes with another hopper.

Its a Figure-oh!/web shop exclusive so expect to need a middle man and pay out the back end for one. Not worth it in my opinion.

I'm sure some will find there way onto eBay like most things do and should only be a little more than the average revo eva.

It dose look like a very nice figure and I like the fact it has another external A.T. field probe. but apart from that and the sword its very light on the extras :(

I'm still hoping that it dosen't come to pass in 4.0 and its just in the preview as I would personally love a b-e-a-utiful fight scene with Asuka in a rebuild unit 02y in the style of EoE (end of eva) rather than a half & half spray paint 0f unit 08 with a modified head :/

by the way dose anyone know if this is just a one of bit of new revo info or was it part of a press release or convention?

EvaEvo 04 Webshop Exclusive on Ebay goes for $120+ that's a lot more then average. Only EXs that go for just alittle more then average are the Eva 01s like the racing and lawsons version. All completely new or never been released before Eva EXs skyrocket on the aftermarket and seeing as this one qualifies as both new and never before it will skyrocket. Good luck if you can't get it on release.

Man it looks ugly :|

Buying it :lol:
But if it won't be sold at AmiAmi then I'll wait to get it from Mandarake...

EDIT:
According o this site it's scheduled for January 2014 with preorders available in a few days, dunno if September 21st or 24th... And by dunno I mean God knows what Google translate means...

It also states that it's Revo #188... But the October figure it's #140... SO unless they release 47 figures in December I think that is wrong... Now that, if it has a number then it can't be that limited :lol:

Ok so if google translate can be trusted and by taking info from a few different sites and translating it the information that can be grasped is as follows-preorders should start september 21st
It will.be released mid january 2014
It costs only 1000 yen more than normal
And I cant see the Word exclusive anywhere so looks to be a possible límited run.

Anybody got anything else or if something I said is wrong please fix/correct or add

Pass for me (even though I'd want the magorox alone), but definitely interesting that it is getting made.

Its prob a limited run like the EvaEvo 04 which only cost $25 at time of release. If that's the case AmiAmi will prob get a batch but you'll have to camp it because once its gone it'll be gone and you'll be left with inflated aftermarket prices on ebay.

I did camped 04 on amiami and was able to get one no prob but they did sell out rather fast.

Picked up Mark.09 Revo from the post office this morning [s]but no time to open it until later in the week...
[/s]
:irked:


Update: So I ended up unboxing it this evening and I'm beyond stoked with this figure - No photos though, as no decent light obviously (I'll post some later in the week). Some points of concern however;
    -Green head/skull-lens thingy is only painted and looks bland
    -Odd gap between the neck and head, even when I've pushed the head down as much as I care to try
    -Eye can be weird and a little difficult to move around
    -Issue with hand holding scythe falling out from the strain
Other than that, yeah, super stoked to finally have this on my shelf.
Looks great!

And I was joking that EVA 8+2 would never appear in FINAL because this thing would be unsellable... and they dared do it! :cringe:
Now I'm worried that it will really appear in FINAL!

Maybe that's a move from Revoltech to recycle unsold EVA-08 figures : after all all you only have to paint the left half red, cut its head's left half to weld in EVA-02's left side of the head(not even the robotic face, so you can even recycle the EVA-02 heads from 2.0!), that must be by far the most cost-friendly design ever! :lol:

Does that mean that someday we will have the proto-EVA-08 seen in the 2.0 preview for Q?

So a few notes about the Bandai kits for those interested. First the essentials:

Size comparison vs the Bandai NGE and NME kits

Rawr

And of course the best gimmick of all
http://i.minus.com/iRgUZSQ3iyEh1.jpg
http://i.minus.com/ibhhIllkNM9QJX.jpg

Overall I'm quite happy with the kits. The first prototypes looked more horrific than early prototypes usually do but the final product is very nice.

Except for one thing.

Eva-02's head.
http://i.minus.com/ibku6zk352PqEA.jpg

I didn't notice it in all the preview photos but the whole thing is pretty much wrong in proportions and worst of all the eyes are in the wrong place.

They are set too far forward and the lower one waaaaaaaaay too low.
http://i.minus.com/i40HfLePU3fE2.jpg
http://i.minus.com/iFoVyn4zGaKXl.jpg
http://i.minus.com/iYoNBGJkFTt1j.jpg

For reference, here's the 3DCG model from the movie.
http://i.minus.com/iYkXfPSXJ8y2B.jpg

See how the eyes are suppose to be?
Bandai decided to be very lazy with it and because of that the whole head got screwed over.

http://i.minus.com/iRjKa1BKEah2H.jpg

They molded the bottom eye onto the main left side head part, but to mold it on correctly they needed to move it into a mosition where the mold could actually do its job. Thus it had to be moved forward and lower until it was sticking out in front of the rest of the head.

http://i.minus.com/ibhbzPovMJeugf.jpg
http://i2.minus.com/iOXaQXYmwTrl2.jpg

The eye was moved so much it actually covers up a bit of the jaw now.
And because the bottom eye was moved forward so was the top one and the whole thing ends up looking wrong.

It's incredibly annoying that an otherwise great kit is ruined by a lazy head.
It's doubly annoying because the head of the 2.0 Eva-02 kit was absolutely fantastic in its parts breakdown and accuracy. That was easily the best part of the kit. Now you have the reverse.
It's triply annoying because the Kotobukiya 02'alpha/beta kit coming in 2014 can make things work no problem.
http://i.minus.com/ibwDRENzxlMwJT.jpg
Although the Koto one will be smaller and more expensive...


Still, the Bandai offerings are pretty damn good kits for only 4,200 yen. 3,050 if you get it from amiami.
No complaints at all about Eva-08.
Eva-02 is gonna need its head fixed up in major ways whenever it makes it to the work table.
