RG Unit 3 is up for preorder. Its DX includes Unit-00’s shield.

Kinda disappointed they didn’t include extra long arms to recreate its beast mode. But honestly it’s been so long since I watched 2.0 that I don’t even remember if it’s infected mode had two extra long arms or if that was just in NGE.

Lol, then it’s long arms will be included in the deluxe version of whatever RG they do next. :emogendo:

Honestly, I wish they’d go back and fix the arm design on these kits before releasing any more. It really killed my interest in the whole line, because the biceps are really just THAT bad.

For anyone interested, CDJapan has the Eva store exclusive Evangelion Evolution 3.0 + 1.0 Reis Ayanami repaint figure up for order through their proxy service. Certainly not cheap considering she doesn't come with hardly any of the accessories of the regular version and I don't know how the price compares to other proxy sellers but there you go. Looks really nice imo.

I haven't built any of them yet (and fwiw, I have heard mixed things about the biceps; seems like they're not terribly hard to fix according to some model kit friends of mine), but the forearm design I really do not care for

They’re easy enough to fix with superglue, but generally I do not like to use glue on my kits unless absolutely necessary.

I agree that the forearms kinda suck. The hips are another problematic area - again fixable by just gluing the hip barrel assembly in place, but not ideal.

I'm not super aware of the hip joints, but generally speaking unless there is some really fucky engineering going on, tightening any joint it usually a fairly easy task, just put a coat of glue or paint over top. I'll probably grab one of the RGs at some point, although I have yet to decide which one

Also, putting tiny, tiny pieces or rubber (like cut from an elastic band) helps.

I generally advise against that; that's only a temporary fix and will wear out the joint much quicker in the long term

Lol… there is indeed some fucky engineering with the hips.

As for which one to get? I’d go with either good ol’ Unit 1 or the upcoming Unit 3, simply due to how under-represented it is - I believe the only widely available option is the old HG and I’ve long expressed my distaste with those kits.

Unit 00 and Mark 6 in particular have… questionable colors. 00 is too mustardy for my tastes, rather than the nice vibrant orange-yellow. And Mark 6 is almost purple instead of navy blue, which makes it look like a completely different “character”. No idea who made that choice, since the HG Mark 6 is way more color accurate.

If I'm gonna get one, I'll wait for the inevitable 04 P Bandai; that will almost definitely be metallic plated and be absolute eye candy as a result. Also Having 04 be my first in a line of Eva figures is kind of a tradition for me at this point, lol

I dunno if it’s inevitable. So far they’ve only been using this mold for Rebuild decos, does the silver Unit 4 even exist in the Rebuilds? If they were going to do NGE stuff I feel like they would’ve re-released color variants of 0, 1 and 2 already.

If anything I’d be interested in seeing it retooled into an MP Eva. That hasn’t had ANY variants since the old ones, far as I can tell, not even from Kotobukiya.

04 is the same in NTE as it is in NGE; the exact same body as 03, just in silver. And the thing with the mold is that the Rebuild version isn't just a new color, the proportions are also significantly different. If they were to do NGE/EoE versions, we'd be looking at a 75% new mold, and I don't see that happening any time soon, RG molds are expensive as hell to make. I'll be glad if Bandai proves me wrong here, but don't hold your breath for it

Bandai Tamashii Nations appear to be making the most of Shin Eva reaching the ten billion mark. Three figures announced yesterday and up for pre-order today including repaint RD unit 01 its Cassius spear, a MK 13 and a Dynaction unit 02!!! Another Dynaction unit 01 with Cassius spear on its way as well as Robot Spirits unit 08, y and a continuation of the metal build Eva line with what looks unit 00 waiting in the wings.

My wallet stings.

Just you. I haven't owned a single piece of merch in my entire life (for financial and domestic availability reasons) and I'm not feeling any need to start now.

Yeah, same. I'm definitely gonna get N02, 08y (probably also ICC in the long run) and the Vessels once they're announced (also probably one or two Mk.7s for good measure), but for now I'm more or less good honestly

Although, with the Wonderfest cancelled until 2022, who knows when we'll see the announced.
