Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

Robot Damashii Eva unit 08 Beta is in the sale over on Amiami and Amazon.co.jp. Pretty good reduction. Picked up another one so I can have with and without guns. Hopefully there might be some new reveals at the Tamashii event on November 6.

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

Received my Robot Damashii Unit 08 improvised combat configuration thingy. Very nice. A little unwieldy given the design, more fun to play with when the guns are off. Much more firmly built and easier to pose than the revoltech. Pleased with it overall though I'm having trouble getting the bracket f...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

You have my sympathy. It sounds Nightmarish. And I thought I had it bad in the UK. Though I did just have to fork out £27.00 to get my Figuarts Captain Marvel into the country. Joy. It was quite a tussle to get it out of Japan I understand Bandai's Japan-centric business thinking but it is frustrati...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

Interesting. Being a Godzilla fan I'm familiar with the disparity between what Bandai perceives what the Japanese fandom wants versus the Western fandom want. Frustrating to say the least. Fascinating to hear how baffled they are by what the rest of the world wants. Come on guys, we like Eva's too, ...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

Yeah, getting stuff is b***h right now. Three of my parcels have gone walk-about! I really would recommend the Eva, fortunately I don't think it's going anywhere, being the centre-piece of a whole new line and all. Unit 00 is out the end of next week so looking forward to that. Hope they get round t...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

The whole thing is vastly improved. Much sharper and less gappy. It looks better proportioned as well, the head feels better scaled than the original. There is a slight concession with regards to articulation compared to the original but that feels like a fair trade-of given how much better it looks...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

Received my new Robot Damashii unit 01 yesterday. Thing of beauty. Wonderfully sharp sculpt and great articulation, unsurprisingly much more sturdy than the Mafex equivalent and better looking too. Really excellent. A definite improvement over the older RDs, stands a little taller to boot and the ba...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

Haven't posted here in an age but a quick word about the Mafex Evas. Unit 01 has some annoyingly loose joints and a few wayward paint apps which does make it feel delicate and insubstantial I guess. Having said that, the sculpt is very nice and most of those issues were mostly corrected for awakenin...

And the Mark 06, which I'm kind of tempted by as I've got the metallic paint version.

Looks like Kaiyodo continue to still be in the re-issue business (imagine everyone has seen this already but thought I'd mention it): http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10313868 http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10313869 Despite being really down on the old Evos back in the day and not collecting them be...

Yeah, i always suspected it was licence thing as well, I know the beast mode didn't sell as well as unit 01 and 02 i just hope they didn't let that put them off. You make an interesting point about fan service, ElMariachi, though ironically i prefer the new looks for the characters, especial...

With summer wonderfest less than a month away I'm hoping we might see some more Eva's, things like the awakened version of Eva 13 and mark 09, seems like a long shot but fingers crossed seeing as they would basically be repaints o pre-existing figures. I don't know if its just my percept...

The only thing to watch for with CDjapan is, and im not sure if its just when u pay with paypal, but they take the money upfront instead of waiting until the stuff comes in stock, not a problem when you're just buying from them but can pre-ordering a bit of a pain.

I feel your pain TMB, I've got the unit 02g on pre-order and really starting to regret it. Don't get me wrong, I really want the figure it's just going to be a pain affording the thing. Ah well, should've known better when I pre-ordered it.

Those pics of the Koto unit 02 look sweet, if mine comes out looking that good I'll be a happy man. Trouble is it's making me want unit 01 (must resist). Finger crossed they produce a unit 08a, would make a nice companion to unit 02.

So my Koto Eva 02 has been shipped, looking forward to that. Bit worried about putting it together as I haven't done anything like that for years. Any advice from the more experienced members of the forum on how best to remove the pieces from their sprues?
