Interest Evangelion's Human-Sized Head Mounted on the Wall
posted on 2010-11-19 07:21 EST by Egan Loo
The model-making studio Akiyamakobo has begun accepting orders for a human-sized (but not life-size) head of the Evangelion: 2.0 anime film's EVA-01 mecha mounted on a wall plaque. At 29 centimeters (about 12 inches) tall and 10,290 yen (US$125, tax included), the "EVA-01 Test Type Wall Figure from Evangelion: 2.0" offers a relatively smaller, less expensive alternative to the full-body, 2.09-meter (7-foot) EVA-01 figure, which Akiyama sells for 1,180,000 yen (US$14,200).
Akiyamakobo will begin shipping the painted, fully assembled head next January. The wall plaque is octagonal, as inspired by the anime's AT Field barrier.
Besides the two human-sized EVA-01 models, Akiyamakobo sells life-size figures of Evangelion's Rei and Asuka characters as well as Mighty Atom/Astro Boy's title character. Akiyamakobo also sells a half-scale version of the fictional Sanka Mk B aerial fighter from Mamoru Oshii's The Sky Crawlers film. Oshii then commissioned Akiyamakobo to make a 10-meter-tall (33-foot-tall) Tetsujin 28 robot for his stage play, and Disney commissioned the firm to make a human-sized figure of the Drossel von Flugel robot from the Fireball anime.
