So I've never preordered anything for Eva or spent up to $100 on a figure...But that Asuka release by Alter really has me excited, so I am planning on doing so depending on how things shake out. And I would even take it out of the box too! That would be something relatively new (opened my Portraits 4 of Shinji, rest is all MIP).

Hi everyone. I am new here. Happy to join this forum which so many fans of eva sharing their collection.

@Theron - I hope to see the RAH eva13's photo first before the preorder. I own a RAH eva01 only.

Hey, so I got this figure off of my friend in a trade a while ago, thinking that it was worth around $20, but some digging around indicates that it may be worth quite a lot more than that, and i am looking for someone to help me to determine just how much more.

It is a 17 inch PVC figure of Evangelion Unit-01 by tsukuda hobby. I have looked all over the internet and the only similar things I have found for sale are the units 00 and 02 over on ebay for around $500 each, but I am skeptical of this number, it being from ebay and all. I have found other places mentioning its rarity, but none of them have given it a price tag, although i have found out that it was originally sold at 9800 yen.

If this price does turn out to be remotely accurate, i may be interested in selling it, if someone on here is interested in buying it

Here are a few pics of Rah Unit 02'y. Its a great figure. Only have 2 small complaints listed below. It has a lot more options for poses than poor Unit 08, which only came with 1 gun accessory. The arms of both 02'y and 08 have looser plastic covering to allow them to stretch with less problems than previous Rah Neos. It might just be mine, but the elbow joint itself won't stay bent and pops back into the neutral outstretch arm position on both RAHs.

Complaint 1: the forearm does not rotate in any way. The elbow can go up and down, but not side to side. This was a problem because in order to get the hand to pose as i wanted, the forearm looks really awkward.

Complaint 2: The feet are not very stable. It takes a bit of maneuvering to get it to be able to stand in anything but the basic neutral pose. It is possible though.
The pic below shows how the foot works. it is a toe portion and a heel portion connected together with a single motion joint.

The two so far from 3.0 look great together. Have to probably repose to make room for Mark.09 and an eventual Eva 13.

Still want a Shinji and Kaworu. Hoping they get a release in 3.0 plugsuits.

I want the Vertex plug interior to pose with Asuka, buuut i don't want to pay 5-600 for it. Looks like it fits very well though.

Hello companions. It's been quite a long time since I last posted here, at that time we were discussing the Revoltech and Robot Damashii figures for Evangelion 2.22, ages ago huh?

So the thing is, I have been in touch with the new releases such as Revoltech's and RAH's, though I saw nothing about Robot Damashii. Did Bandai abandon the Rebuild line?

3 years without figures or announcements, you bet... I knew those RD were trouble when I saw them, leaving inconcluse sets and hyped fans...

I've just received my RAH Eva-01, and I'm really disappointed. It has too many flaws for such a high price to be justified. I'll post some details and pictures later.

With the big figures being so expensive and me being so poor and lacking space, I've been hunting around for decent small-scale figures with some success! So far, I've picked up two sets of Bandai's Ultimate Action Evas.

One set is NGE Classic with Evas 1-3, Israfel Orange, and a launch platform. There's also a grey Israfel, but I really didn't want to spend 25 dollars and get a bunch of duplicates for just the one figure:

SPOILER: Show

The other is a Rebuild set with Eva 01, Eva 00, Sachiel, Shamshel, and two VTOL fighters on a stand.

SPOILER: Show
Image


Fantastic little figures, especially for the price. The Evas are 4.5 inches at the fins, jointed at the necks, shoulders, wrists, waists, hips, knees, ankles, and the booklet shows a hidden elbow joint that I'm afraid to use after hearing about the RAH figures deteriorating. They also come with a bunch of weapons, interchangeable hands, and at least one umbilical cable.

Sachiel has articulated elbows and shoulders and has small energy rams that peg into the arms. Shamshel's head moves up and down for flight mode and has a second set of arms in a different pose. Israfel...does nothing.

Just yesterday, I bought a complete set of Fraulein Heroine Anthology 4 part 2 figures:

A full set of Assault Action Q figures:

Image

Can't wait to see these up close. They look really similar to the Ultimate Action figures, but with a better elbow joint system.

And also the Mark 09 from the Neo Act 2 set:
SPOILER: Show
Image

It seems to have some kind of limited articulation, but I'll have to check it closer when it gets here.

I'm still missing 04, 05, 06, and a Mass Production Eva to complete my Mini Eva collection. 4's pretty much a bust. I've seen an unpainted 05 as part of one Ultimate Action set but none for sale individually. 06 is in the first Assault set and pretty expensive to come by. No idea about the Harpie, though :um:

Just got my RAH NEO Eva 01. It's amazing. I wish it was more poseable, but the sheer dominance it carries over the rest of my collection is so worth it.
