What about "Animated" or "Prime?" Or were you one of those fanboys that judged the series for how it looked and ignored it?


The way they looked certainly didn't help. But based on your choice of words, it sounds like ANYTHING else I say in addition the atrocious designs, no matter how valid it might be, you will ignore it completely because you've decided that any negativity one may have is purely based on how they looked. Therefore I won't bother.

not really, I mean Most transformers figures are either repaints, or different body parts.

It the most amazing thing I never knew I wanted.

That's one way to look at it lol. "It's so obvious why didn't we think of this before?!" Because you were busy milking Eva for every penny you could get already with every other possible merchandise idea you could think of for the past decade+ would be my guess. The news of this makes me wonder though, what's the next grand idea for Eva merchandise? Eva Titans? That being said I will admit Optimus does look nice in the paint scheme.

The Third Impact came, with Prime transforming into a fleshy thing that ate Bumblebee's head and engulfing the world.

It's an exclusive, Takara Tomy rarely makes new figures for exclusive. Sometimes they'll slap on a new head or a new weapon, but that's about it.

He looks like a Decepticon, Optimus Prime's evil twin.

Other than Japan, what's this figure exclusive to? Their online store?

I'm not a fan of Evangelion but am a big Transformers fan and already own a Masterpiece Optimus Prime thus am not interested. Optimus has always had clashing colours and his evil doppelgangers had a colour scheme that gave them looming presences but the consistent purple doesn't suit the figure in my taste. I follow many toy reviewers on YouTube, Transformers fans in particular, and am certain I'll get a kick out of their reactions if they do pick these guys up.

Wonder how the Evangelion mechs (not familiar with the series) and the other Transformers will look like.
