I am not a huge fan of Evangelion, but this is awesome. May Hakuto reach their goal!

This sounded a lot more impressive from the headline than the actual article details make it out to be.

Agreed. But still, even if it's a 24 CM model, it's still a nice tribute. As long as they won't release Lilith (spoiler[Rei]).

Edit: I just now noticed that I accidentally put a decimal point in the centimetres numbers. Damn habit.

Too bad the spear can't be life size if it was you could see from earth with the help of a telescope of course.

Such a dumb thing to think of. Besides, Evangelion is horrible.

Paying roughly $849, 560 for something roughly 2 ft. long to go on the moon seems like isn't worth the investment to me.

While people starve around the world they are going to spend millions to stick a fork in the moon.

This argument can be applied to the amount of money that countries spend on things that aren't helping the starving people.

This may be valid, but still don't saves this project from being one of the dumbest things I've ever seen in my life.

Thankfully a small crowdfunding project is not in charge of fixing world hunger.
