A figure will be unveiled on October 25th. I hope we get plenty of photos, I want to see how it looks on the back without the "jetpack".

That's Bandai's designation for Robot Tamashii based on various franchises

Side MS = Gundam
Side KMF = Geass
Side PB = Galient
Side FranXX, Side Mashin, Side Labor, Side Jaeger, Side AB, Side SK, etc, etc

Ah cool. Thanks everybody.

I love that Unit 02 has taken a severe beaten and over the course of the films has become barely recognizable.

They also unveiled this absolute beast of a figure at the same show:
SPOILER: Show

With the new Unit 02 figure, you can more clearly see that it has its own torso underneath the JA armor, so that's neat! ^_^ It wasn't nearly as clear in the trailer, although I believe Reichu pointed out that it did.
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Not exactly matching: Asuka is missing her left eye, while 02 is missing one of its right eyes.

I cannot do nothing but appreciate this design, it's so heavily packed with information that it's the same as reading one small text, the design is very unique an it's the next logical step NTE could take. The design incorporates very clearly the early idea of the Evas being based out of onis, thus that's why it does have such a demonic appearance, it also incorporates Anno wishes to show the Evas as imperfect and battered, the appearance of the EVA now looks a lot more mature and worn out which fits perfectly with the status of timeskip Asuka and how much the word changed (plus the EVAS are a mirror that reflects its pilot heart which would include its appearance and Unit 2 now does even have an eyepatch along with Asuka! How cool is it?), even more amazingly the design even ties a lot with the previous movies, during Ha we had seen various tests involving EVA technology, after 14 years the tech of the EVAs greatly improved and in this design we can see the pay off from that (specially the tests on Bethany Base), now we are sure an EVA can be made 90% mechanically (Anyone remembers Unit 5?) and it pretty much matches a normal EVA unit without any limitations, we can clearly have an exposed perfectly working plug too (remember the tests made on the Third Angel with that creepy exposed plug embedded in its neck?), aside from all of that geniously Anno managed ressurect an old forgotten idea from the series (Jet Alone) and make it fit perfectly within the new scenario of NTE... in fewer words this new design in my opinion is VERY great, I love it and it's nothing I wouldn't expect from something with the quality of Evangelion, excited to see more of it in the final movie.
I never understood why people hate the Rebuild because it's different and love the Series, can we just love it all without creating dilemmas and unnecessary discussions?

What is actually the name of this design? There's so many names.
