posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Takara Tomy has revealed more information on its Transformers x Evangelion crossover project. The image teased in previous ads turns out to be a "Mode Eva" edition of the Transformers MP-10 Convoy figure.
The figure transforms into "robot" mode and "vehicle" mode. In vehicle mode, Optimus features a NERV logo, while in robot mode, he's taken on Unit-01's signature colors. The figure will be released in November but preorders open on June 12 for 25,000 yen (~$250). Previous ads also included the "story" behind the figure:
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.
Takara Tomy released the original MP-10 Convoy figure in two versions. Here's a look at the original figure:
