Rebuild Evangelion's Unique Mechas Get Revoltech Figures
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Two of the strangest Evangelion unit designs from Evangelion Rebuild films are getting highly posable Revoltech figures. Shinji and Kaworu's joint-piloted Evangelion No. 13 with four arms and dual-wielding the Spear of Longinus and the Spear of Cassius from Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo is one of the new figures.
Two of the arms are removable, and it also comes with exchangeable hands, a rifle, pistol, and other accessories so customers can recreate a variety of scenes from the film.
Evangelion Provisional Unit-05, which was piloted briefly by Mari Makinami Illustrious in Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance, is also getting a figure. The unit is unique in that while its top half is humanoid like the other units, its bottom half is vehicle-like, sitting on four wheels and allowing it to drive forward at a fast pace. It's shown holding a jousting lance. The Revoltech figure also comes with the Third Angel to recreate battle scenes from the film.
Both figures cost 4,968 yen (US$45) each and are part of the Evangelion Evolution line.
Revoltech added gruesome accessories earlier this year, including LED-lit remains of the Fourth Angel (Shamshel), torn appendages, and blood.
The final new Evangelion film, Shin Evangelion Gekijō-ban :||, is in production. Khara's official website also revealed in April that the studio was recruiting animators, modelers, technical staff, system engineers, and production managers.
