Figure manufacturer Kotobukiya will release an Evangelion Unit-01 plastic model painted in Burning Godzilla's color scheme from the Godzilla vs. Destoroyah film this November. It will presumably go nicely with Bandai's Eva-colored Godzilla figures, another part of the ongoing Godzilla vs. Evangelion collaboration that began with an April's Fools update to the Godzilla Resurgence film's website.
The Godzilla-themed Unit-01 model is 19 centimeters (7.48 inches) tall and is priced at 6,200 yen (about US$59.41). The Godzilla figure designed after Unit-01 is also available for pre-order on Premium Bandai.
The collaboration also spawned a MechaGodzilla figure with Evangelion colors, offered with pre-orders of Godzilla Resurgence movie tickets, and crossover art of a battle between the two forces.
Hideaki Anno, director of Neon Genesis Evangelion is also the chief director and writer for Godzilla Resurgence, coming out in theaters in Japan on July 29.
