Let's be honest, that Domo-Kun looks ugly beyond any reason...

Anyway I did end up snapping together the Koto head just to get it in the lineup

Left to right: Bandai TV(with eye sticker), Bandai F-Type, Bandai NTE, Koto NTE

Front  SPOILER: Show

Side  SPOILER: Show

The thing that jumps out the most at me is the armor under the eyes, it is very flattened out on the Koto kit. That is a very nice thing to see because Bandai's was always too vertical for me. Overall the proportions are nice but some of the details bother me. The line under the eye and above the vent is straight but it should curve in and up as on the Bandai NTE. The teeth also bother me a bit. In the end these things are minor and I'll just build it straight. The pre-painted eyes and beard are annoying but that's also minor. Bonus points for putting the gates on the green vent parts in a spot that's hidden when assemebled.

So yeah, not my perfect Shogouhead but it's not evil enough to warrant fixing.

A few more shots  SPOILER: Show

Keep in mind macro photos usually show more flaws than your real eyes would care about. This should look quite nice just plain snapped on a shelf.




EDIT: I was gonna hold off and try it later but couldn't resist and started snapping

=======================EDIT: NEW POST EDITION=======================

So the preliminary snapping is done. I left out some tiny filler parts like the shoulder emblems and forearm highlights because they seem too fiddly to bother with.

Quick and dirty scale comparion vs the Bandai kits and ruler. Left to right: Bandai TV, Bandai 1.0, Bandai 2.0 (some resculpting was done), Kotobukiya.
Flash  SPOILER: Show

No flash  SPOILER: Show

More thoughts on this later because chores now. Overall I'm pretty happy though.

Um....

Bandai LMHG TV
Bandai LMHG TV + Catapult stand
Bandai PG
Bandai LMHG F-Type
Kotobukiya Technique Impossible
Kotobukiya resin kit
Bandai 1.0
Bandai 2.0 Awakened ver.
Kotobukiya 2.0 1/400 Plastic kit

So...nine I guess?

Although I really should have order two of the new Koto one so that I can build an awakened version too. Definitely ordering 2x Eva-02' because it's buildable as both alpha and beta configuration.

Nah. Dust is the only thing keeping those kits warm until I get around to painting them :D

Anyway more on the Koto kit. Mostly I am very pleased. I was gonna go in depth about why I like some of the decisions Koto made regarding molding but it would be long-winded and boring. Plus it would work better when contrasted to some of the decisions Bandai makes. I already have a rant for that due in my own thread whenever the apprpriate kit update goes up.

Overall the kit is pretty sturdy but some of the thinner pegs make me worry. Haven't broken anything yet but I'm not quite confident to abuse it too much.

My biggest gripe with it is all in the shoulders. Both the actual shoulder joints themselves and how the arms and pylons interact. Is approximately the same as the Bandai Wille kits with the difference being the Wille pylons have more clearance.


The Koto shoulder has this nice solid hole with solid walls for the ball


It kinda gets in the way and a potential hazard for paint




Now onto a few posing tests. Please ignore the crap in the background. My tables are all a mess and I have no room to set up some kind of blank background.

Obligatory hip joint flexibility and foot stability test


Ow ow ow

I'm loving the legs on this kit.

Kick


Armor technically shouldn't work this way, but it does and that's great


Full forward roar


Full upright roar


Unfortunately it can not facepalm


Assume fetal position instead


So...


Guess that's it for now


Dramatic rawr

I've just finished my Koto Unit 1 yesterday, and TMB pretty much said everything I was gonna say.

I love this kit, it's really nice. Some parts of it didn't really want to go together, but after some time I finally got it all together. Nice and flexible, sometimes I forget it's a kit from how nice it is.

Now I can only hope for an Awakened version, and a Eva 13...

Asuka is like :asuka_thumbsup: at your display.

Rei is like :rei_meh: at your lack of Rei/ReiQ/Zerogouki/Mark.09 related products.

How long did it took, mate? My Eva-13 took about 2 months to arrive. Oddly enough, Mark.09 arrived in 2 weeks.

@TMBounty_Hunter: Does this new kit requires glue? I've received it a few days ago but haven't built it because I wonder if I should paint it or not.

If it doesn't require glue I might build it already and disassemble it later to paint it.

It doesn't require it, but it would make things better in a few places. In my case it was the shoulder. G18 keeps popping out of A1/2 if I force the arm motions.

The F polycap in ther upper shoulder (sandwiched by C6/7 on right arm, C3/11 on left) also seems to be a bit loose but I haven't torn it apart again to see why yet.

Other than that it's very solid.

I'm thinking about taking mine apart sometime, and painting the green parts glow-in-the-dark-neon-green. Hmm.

Pics of the Wunder AAA garage kit in all it's glory. http://neweva.blog103.fc2.com/blog-entry-2753.html

Looks pretty damn sweet, but it might just be me as the wings look a tad small for the length of the body :/ other than that it looks super. Just wish you didn't have to paint it as I'm no good at that :(
