Takara Tomy Planning Transformers x Evangelion Crossover

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The idea is so obvious, it's amazing it took this long. Toy maker Takara Tomy has taken out ads in this month's hobby magazines showing Optimus Prime with a very familiar color scheme. The details of the Evangelion cross-over is still underwraps at this point, but the ad even includes its own "story":

The Angels are invading. Breaking a long silence, the mysterious life-forms known as the Angels suddenly appear. The weapons the UN forces gather together in retaliation can't even scratch them. In the end, they turn to the secret agency, NERV, to manage the anti-Angel strategy.

With Neo-Tokyo 3 in their sights, the Angels slowly advance upon the city...but suddenly a spaceship comes hurtling down from the sky above the Angels: the Autobot Sky Lynx! Out of the ship emerges warriors of the far-off planet Cybertron. They've come to investigate after noticing an unusual energy reading.

"We can't let a disaster like the Second Impact occur on this planet."
"What?! What are these monsters?!"

Optimus Prime sets his sights on an enemy much bigger than himself.

The company opened a 30th anniversary site for Transformers last week and Nippon Television Network will hold the Transformers Expo in August.
