I have two lovely lesbian (not that there's anything wrong with that) figures MISB in 1/8 scale from the series. Rei and Asuka.

I'd be willing to sell or trade for Tf's.


Here be the ladies themselves...

Ah yes saw that Eva 01 on sale at HLJ recently. I was sorely tempted although I'm not a fan of the body proportions. Love the removable armour though.

But bottom line is my Eva collecting days were 10 years ago, and I'm happy with my set of the older dynamic looking Kaiyodo figures.

Particularly the nasty ones. :D

Yep, but the 2nd movie was good if only for the action scenes.

Eva is sick, I love it, and I wouldn't say the endings are crap, just quite confusing...

Yeah to be honest I liked the series ending better than the movie........but what I'm hearing about the new movies that the ending is going to be different again. Oh well more money wasted on more plastic *sigh*

Those are the 2 Eva Series variants (winged and battle damage versions) and the Movie version Eva 02 some of the last of the Kaiyodo Evangelion figures, the precursor to todays Revoltech. larger and with a fancier finish than Revoltech but more limited joints, however they are sculpted in a very dynamic fashion and the joints are well placed so you can get some fantastic poses. Not to mention the Eva series has battle damge parts.

One of the most disturbing figures ever, thanks to the base.

yea I remember when they used to show it on SBS, my whole family sat there and watched it every week and thought the same thing, the ending was terrible.

But it didnt stop me from buying the boxset when I saw it lol.

Would this be the place to discuss aspects of the series? I'm wondering, what was the true nature of Misato's relationship with Shinji? Did she just relate in that way to all men she was close to? Was she giving him some sexual education? Or did she have a bit of a crush on him, at the same time as trying to 'parent him'?

The ending warrants discussion, though probably deserves a whole 'nother thread.

And on a related note, where on earth can you buy 'the end of Evangelion' movie which ties up lots of the loose ends from the series. It seems to be as rare as an anime colours astrotrain G1 reissue!

Try look for a 2 dvd box set, its the End of Evangelion Death and Rebirth dvds, I picked it up a few years ago, its in a red slip case.

On a related note, I found one of my grails the other day, the Bandai SOC SPEC XS-08 unit 02 eva. I have to say although this series of eva figures are older, their still some of the nicest that have been made, they stand taller than the RD's and revoltechs, and have removable Die cast armor pieces. So far I've tracked down:

Unit 01
Unit 01 Berserk (with the purple and red paint job like in the new movie)
Unit 00 (blue version)
and Unit 02, I will possibly photograph tomorrow!

jimoinj - if I had to put a label on Misato's relationship to Shinji, I'd go with 'big sister', although, being his legal guardian, she does try to act as a mother figure (in End of Evangelion, she reflects at one point that she wasn't really much of a mother to Shinji). I think her 'flirtiness' is more an attempt to get him to 'loosen up' than a serious attempt at intimacy, but that's me.

Dkaris - congratulations on the acquisition! Just out of curiosity, which Spec Unit 01 do you have, the original series one or the Rebuild one?

I got bored of the design, it was an inspiration back then, to me these are dated, even the NEW Metal build I am over it. It was ridiculous people charging 35,000 at NY site.
I have all four of the Bandai Spec design, and I am about to retire them from my display as it no longer "wow" me in the mecha scene.

But saying that, If you into them the Mafex will do fine. I actually hate the BS of this design being upgraded and adding a lot of weapons that the Eva units never even touched in the anime. Is just giving an excuse for you to buy and update.
I personally wished Bandai continued the perfect grade EVA units but they only done 01 which was a shame.

Now the show (and movies) are on Netflix I want to revisit them. I think I will ?get? it more now than when I watched the show as a teenager

There?s a bit of furore among the fans as the Netflix series has been redubbed with an entirely new cast. I understand theres going to be the inevitable comparison with the original cast, but I heard that they were allegedly given false hopes of being a part of the re-dub.

In addition there has been some changes to the translation, which apparently was supposed to be closer/direct to the Japanese translation but doesn?t make actual sense in English. For example the pilots are individually referred to as ?children? ie ?Third Children, Second Children? rather than ?Third Child or Second Child?. Some changes also impact the emotional conveyance but I guess thats up to each person to interpret.

Heres the thing, I was actually not a fan of the design as they are not really robots which is what I am into. The story of the anime helped. But for me Eva has grown out of style < is just me, dont worry if you still into it. Just not into the skeleton frame bio mech.
They are sort of just recycling the product imo just to make new toys. The original set of three or four Evas are good enough and I am retiring them from my display. I think the Mafex one is reasonably good.

What makes me cringe is an Optimus cross over or some other series has to made an Eva color version. So over this move. If its not an Eva, is not.

Well, Evangelion was clearly more of a ?one off? series compared to something like Gundam which spans multiple character/story/event arcs and thus introduce new designs and merchandise. So not surprising we don?t see much in terms of variety in the merchandise.

Thats not what I mean, I mean this design as grown outdated. You can only change so much for any EVA unit. Is just down to die hard fans who still in love with the design continues to buy and support (nothing wrong there). Do we see a new Eva 01 unit? Not exactly, the Evangelion designs are only regenerating based on the basic construction and this is what I mean "you can only do so much with it". Gundam is a lot different, the mech changes with significant amount of design changes. Its also not contained by the bio mechanical design unlike Eva is. I hope that clears it up.

When word that Netflix had acquired the licence first broke, Spike Spencer (original English Shinji), Tiffany Grant (original English Asuka), and Amanda Winn-Lee (original English Rei) expressed their interest in reprising their roles. Winn-Lee and Grant were eventually allowed to audition, but this seems to have been just a token gesture, and both were bound by NDAs until the series was actually released on Netflix. According to one of the voice directors (who also plays Misato), Khara selected the cast.

Yep, the new subtitle and dub scripts have proven to be quite contentious. They seem to emphasise fidelity to the original Japanese at the expense of localisation to English, so some word and phrase selections sound strange to a native English speaker. The Child vs. Children one you mentioned is a notorious example - the original Japanese script literally uses the English word 'Children' to refer to even a singular pilot. Matt Greenfield, who wrote the original English script in 1996, recalled that he fought with Gainax to allow him to change this to 'Child' since it makes no grammatical sense in English and they were vetting his scripts.

There have been quite a few detail changes to the Evas over the years - the most marked being the Anima designs, which the new Bandai Metal Build figures seem to be inspired by, but the basic shape has stayed the same, probably to keep that distinctive Eva look.
