In the end it will be a matter of preference, but I wouldn't go for having a collection where 2 or 3 figures are different from the rest... The EvaEvo of Evas 00/03 do not differ from RD's in terms of extras...


Well, the RD Zerogouki comes with a gatling gun for Unit 01 (which was only available with a totally out of scale older Unit 00 Revoltech) and a more in-scale rocket, whilst the EvaEvo comes with a few effect parts and a Zeruel face thing. The EvaEvo Unit 03 also comes with effect parts and a "being slammed to the floor" Unit 01 head thing.

The RDs are better toys by far, but the EvaEvos aren't bad and make good substitutes for the Evas with no RD release.

I only have Unit 00 RD and Unit 08 Alpha Revo, and these were my experiences:

>RD has better articulation with 2 ball-joints at the shoulder and a much more poseable waist. The EvaEvo still has good articulation, but not on par with the RD. On the plus side for the EvaEvo, the ratcheting joints are much tighter than the RD's ball joints (some of which may require tightening with a spot of floor polish/superglue/gloss varnish or whatever).

>EvaEvo tends to have more accessories than the RD, especially effectparts (like the awesome blood spray that comes with Unit 02 Beast Mode). RD usually has better quality on its accessories with better paint apps and sturdier plastic.

For a comparison (bear in mind I don't have either of these figures) EvaEvo Unit 02 comes with the rocket shoulder pylons and arm fins, a magnetic crossbow, progressive knives, and a special stand with moveable attack spikes like the ones Clockiel used, that can hold a transluscent core. RD Unit 02 comes with the same accessories, but ditches the stand+effect parts and includes the bayonetted rifle (was it called a thunder spear?) that Mari used. Also, the arm fins simply slot in and out on the RD, rather than swapping the whole forearm.

>Paint is usually better on the RD than EvaEvo. the EvaEvos seem to use this horrible glossy paint, which despite looking nice, is slightly tacky and has a habit of attracting dirt which has to be scrubbed off, often damaging the paint in the process.

>QC varies. RDs usually have very good paint apps and build quality but slightly loose joints. Revos have very nice joints, but the build quality is variable (although not bad by any stretch) and the paint apps can b anything from great to awful.

>Revos are modular and much better for customizing than RDs.

>RDs don't come with a stand. However, Bandai do make stands meant for their figures which are very good. Revos all come with stands, but they are a bit iffy (although they are modular, which is nice).

Some pics from the Evangelion Kaiyodo Figure World display I mentioned in my post in the weapons exhibit thread:

Sorry for the gratuitous amount of images but there were just too many awesome dioramas. Will try and post more when I get back home maybe.

Another good thing was that there was a merch store attached; picked up Evangelion 13 (even though I told myself I wouldn't) which actually seems to be sold out at nearly every joint I've been to whilst over here.

Has anyone seen the image of awkwened mark 09 fighting code 777 cat beast unit 02?

Just wondering if this was done just for the event or if revoltech will be releasing these next year?

Does such a thing really exist? I've been waiting for an announcement for either of those, or the Awakened Eva-13.

I just love the sheer absurdity of that scene, be it EVA-02' and 13 cosplayed as ronins, 08 and Mark.09 not giving a fuck and Gendo enjoying the show form his desk(you just need to add a popcorn bucket!) :rofl:

The reconstitution of EVA-13 and Mark.09 descending through the Main Shaft is also very neat, makes you want to put it in a showcase in your home!

Don't have any RD or other finished figures. Only kit. If noone else beats me to it the scale comparison you'll be getting is vs Bandai kit and a ruler. Althouth this kit is to scale. 80m to top of pylons in 1/400 scale = 20cm. some sites list it as 19cm tall but I'm assuming that's head height.


Just for fun:
Dicounted Amiami price = 3,840 yen
SAL Shipping = 1,080 yen
Points used = 93
Grand total = 4,827 yen
Total I was charged after paypal conversion rate for buying directly from Japan = $52.15CAD
SAL is also ignored by customs so I won't be paying any more fees or taxes.

Cheapest local store has
66% markup on the yen price (while treating $1 = 100 yen)
13% tax
Base local price for this 5,400 yen kit = $89.94CAD
After tax = $101.29CAD

And that is why I've stopped buying locally.

Blue Monday, awesome pics are fucking awesome. Love the reenactment of Mark.09 barging through with a Misato threatening to detonate the DSS Choker on Shinji.

I think they are customs made for the event... But that gives a really good Idea of how they'll look like :tongue:

I really like the face sculpt, she actually looks tired and that 14 years have taken a toll. On the other hand there has been a worrying amount of time and sculpting that has gone into that ass, emm yeah little concerned :/

Agreed : the slightly sunken eye and the little line under them manages to perfectly convey 14 years of fighting and surviving in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, very nicely done...

Which makes the very form fitting area of her ass all the more jarring, especially since this plugsuit version is the less fitting of all the versions that exists, it's the second version that's so fitting that it looks like the lower section is actually body-paint(especially with Mari!)
I hope that it's just because it's a unfinished prototype and that the final product will tone down that ass.

Full blogpost with more pics is here: http://neweva.blog103.fc2.com/blog-entry-2701.html

The butts seem to be the center of attention for most of the Q related figures, even the KawoShin ones.
Honestly I am not in any way displeased at that.
