(This article was originally posted in Japanese at 19:31 Oct. 01, 2009.)
It's natural that there are some deformation and omission on reproducing action figure of anime robots, so we have lived with the resignation, that there will be no perfect Evangelion adaption to plastic figure, especially the one appeared and showed the most dynamic action in the latest Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance.
But BANDAI accomplished this difficult job. They brought EVANGELION Unit-02 movie edition plastic figure to TAMASHII NATION 2009, the exhibition held in Akihabara UDX. They also brought movie and comic edition of Unit-01, and Petit Eva to the site.
There might be some spoiler for those who haven't watch the movie.
Read on for detail.
Comes with compatible weapons and hands.
Airborne unit can be attached to Unit-02.
A lot of joints enables any posing you want.
Displayed in running form.
"Awakening" Unit-01 appeared in the 2nd movie.
Once beaten, but pilot Shinji's anger brought it back to the fight.
