With Hideaki Anno (the director of Neon Genesis Evangelion) helming the upcoming Godzilla Resurgence film (along with Attack on Titan's Shinji Higuchi, who wrote and storyboarded several Evangelion episodes), an Evangelion × Godzilla crossover should come as no surprise. And indeed, that's what transpired following an April Fool's update to the Godzilla Resurgence website this year.
The latest aspect of the collaboration is a figure of Godzilla with coloring and design that evokes Evangelion's Unit-01. The figure is 16.5 cm (or 6.5'') tall. It is on display this weekend at Tamashii Features 2016, an adult-oriented toy show at Bellesalle Akihabara in Tokyo, but it can also be ordered via Premium Bandai and (later) the Eva Store for 9,936 yen (about $90). It is part of Bandai's S.H.MonsterArts line. Delivery is scheduled for January.
In addition, official artwork of characters in chibi form from both franchises has been unveiled. Merchandise using the artwork is expected to be revealed soon.
The crossover previously included a MechaGodzilla figure which also had an Eva Unit-01 color scheme. There is also a second visual showing Unit-01 clashing with Godzilla and an Ichiban Kuji lottery prize showing the same battle.
