Revoltech have released more information regarding their EVA New Unit-02 action figure from the new Shin Evangelion 4.0 film.
“Mankind’s greatest fear is mankind itself.” -Gendo Ikari
For those unfamiliar with Neon Genesis Evangelion, its an anime (Japanese animation) that ran from the 4th of October 1995 to the 26th March 1996. The show ran for 26 episodes, followed by a movie in 1997. A decade later in 2007 a four-part series of movies released in theatres, with the aim of rebooting the anime series. The fourth movie is due this year and features the figure we are looking at now.
This particular design is based on Asuka Shinkami Langley’s Unit-02 EVA. Thanks to Kaiyodo we get an armoured iteration of the figure, complete with missile launchers and jet thrusters. The figure also reveals part of the salvaged Unit-02 which was damaged in battle with the Tenth Angel. The figure also features a reimagined head and a new shoulder pylon which has elements taken from Ikari-sans Unit-01.
The figure stands at 19″ tall and is priced at ¥33,500 JPY (approx $308 USD) and is available to preorder, using the link below.
If you love Gundam or mecha, this certainly deserves a place in your collection. Its sheer size and articulation take it to another level which is clearly shown in its asking price. Will you be picking this up? If so, let us know in the comments below.
