just got into this show, what's the best figure of the eva 01?
>>7617961how is the mafex?
>>7617959Ask in the evangelion thread newfag.
Metal Build 01.And no, I don't care about show accuracy.
>>7617959If you got into it because of Netflix, I would recommend you instead watch the original sub/dub. The og VA's and translation are far superior.Also, post in the Eva Toys thread next time, newfag
>>7617970>>7617966lol my bad guys my bad>>7617970i did just get into it due to netflix. i'm currently on episode 2, what are the big changes before it's too late?
>>7617980Don't know much about the new voices but watching Evangelion for the first time and being unable to listen the ending song is ridiculous. Just download the show.
>>7617984can you point me in the direction of the original dubs, please?
>>7617970The new subs are that bad? That's a shame, I was planning on watching it.
>>7617961Yup. It looks great and Revoltechs have the best articulation in the market.>>7617965Overpriced.
>>7617995Also I'm trolling. Not to start another Revo-War, and I don't know which is the best reasonably priced yet good version of Eva 01 on the market right now, but the Revoltech is certainly not it. Maybe the Robot Spirits? I dunno.
>>7617959This feels like bait at this point
>>7617995>>7617998are there bootlegs of the revo i'll have to worry about?>>7618014its not
>>7617959I've own both Revos and the robot spirits and honestly the robot spirits were the best. It's just they've only released unit 00-03,awakening and 02 beast. And outside 01 and 02 the rest are super expensive. I ended up selling them a sticking with the eva evo revos(which are not bad at all)because the kept making all the new ones. Robot Spirits stopped after awakening and beast.
>>7618032you have to understand that for almost as long as /toy/ has been around we get a "what is the best eva unit 01 figure" thread about once a monthif you want the tv look, revoltech is the cheapest, the latest kotobukiya model kit is the most accurate (but its a model kit, so) and the chogokin is the big boy deluxe spender. if you want the rebuild look, best bet is the robot damashii one (pic related) but good luck getting it for cheap
>>7618185oh shit i'm sorry about that. i've been on /toy/ for like a year now and i'd never noticed the eva threads. definitely want the TV look. aren't there multiple chogokins?
Almost all the good shit is based off the rebuild designs, which really lack the broad shoulder width of the TV series designs.
>>7618223here's a super outdated guide.
>>7618225>last updated 2013>2.22 came out in 2009>its been ten years since 2.22 came out
>>7618225thanks for the guidejust realized the green stripe on the stomach of the rebuild versions. is that like a good indicator that it's a rebuild version?
>>7617970>I would recommend you instead watch the original sub/dub. The og VA's and translation are far superior.Where is this meme coming from? Everything in the new Netflix translation from the subtitle track to the dub actors were approved by Studio Khara.And the original ADV dub was fucking trash! I can't believe people are defending it. I swear I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.
>>7618230The rebuild designs have a different color mid torso armor piece. The original TV versions are more monochromatic. The TV versions are better in every way I think.
>>7618224Have you not seen the Soul Specs?
>>7618245i absolutely agree, it only looks like there's a couple options for TV though, the old revoltech, bandai hobby model kit, and the soul of chogokin ones
Comparison of the main Rebuild figures.
>>7618281is there one like this for the anime ones?
>>7618281I still like my RD Unit 01 but I can't wait for the RAH reissue in November. It was a mistake to pass it up the first time.
>>7618288For the anime ones, I think your only good options are the recent model kits (I think by Kotobukiya?) and Soul of Chogokin SPEC.I have the XS-01R Eva-01 and she's pretty good, just wish she had a matte coat.
>>7618298Any idea how expensive is the shipping going to be for that?
>>7618288I just made this, hard to find images of the older ones. hope this is what you we're looking for.
Having a look around for all those Eva 00 figures for the collage above reminded me of how bummed I am that they didn't do the blue unit in the Rebuild movies, the yellow one just doesn't have the same pizzazz to me.
Was there EVER a decent figure of the TV/Zeruel fight version of berserk mode? It's pretty much how I see Eva 01 mentally and all I have is the tamashii spec one which isn't really capable of pulling off the poses.
>>7618373Yeah the yellow version just looks like it's WIP to me. I always saw it as construction gear colors, since it was still being worked on until it got the blue paint job.
>>7618371Whoops, I had the two Revoltech's flipped round the wrong way, fixed it.
>>7618237>Try to look up his accurate the new subs are compared go the original>Get a bunch of articles complaining about "gay erasure"
I really dislike anime and just want to talk about the toys. That's all that matters.
>>7617959If you play with your toys, Robot DamashiiIf you only display them, SOC SpecEverything else is either shitty quality or shitty looking. Don't trust the promo pics.
>>7617959Good luck, some of the figures can be up to 23 years old.
>>7618515From reading a bunch of stuff about it, it seems to me that mainly it’s an issue of localisation (changing the words but keeping the meaning) vs translation (keeping the words but loosing some of the meaning).1997 version is more localised, dialogue is more changed from the original, but that let them maybe better preserve the meaning of what was being said. 2019 is more a direct translation, so it’s more faithful, but because of that you loose some of the nuance because some things can’t be translated to english, see the “I’m the lowest of the low/this is so fucked up” scene.
>>7618638Honestly, the scene still felt massively gay to me. I didn't think it lost any of it's meaning and actually came off as a little less blunt which I appreciated. Now they definitely should've kept the I'm so fucked up line. Overall I liked the new dub. Nothing to get offended at.
>>7618638>>7618648How does this relate to children's toys on this blue board of ours? Stop spreading this nonsense here, no one gives a fuck about the show.
>>7618650Fuck off Ahmed. We're talking about the source material. You're free to leave. Also, how many children are playing with expensive toys/models of giant killer robot death mommies?
>>7618659>We're talking about the source materialwhich is bad and dumb unlike the toys.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5RLPi0RKzAThis video is better than your dumb stupid children's cartoon because its about a toy and not some imaginary waifu you dumb neets kill each other over because of what color they prefer. fuck the anime, long live the free reign of children's toys on this blue board of ours
>>7618660Why are you even in this thread if you don't like the source material?
>>7618659Why is it this scene from One Hour Photo has more depth than anything Evangelion shat out? Oh right! Because its literally about a children's toy that a child wanted but the cheating father didn't want hence why Robbin Rip in Peace Williams took vengeance like the good guy he is.
>>7618664Why the fuck does anyone have to give a shit about the source material when it comes to children's toys? Are you that much of a Eric Butts you cry yourself to sleep over dumb movie trailers and end up on tv for getting bullied about it on social media sites? You truly are a corporate drone over shallow media and not truly caring about the first rule of this board, none of which it ever states anything outside the name of what this board is.
>>7618664How many anons on this site own evangelion toys without ever watching the show?
>>7618667>>7618671>>7618674Holy shit Ahmed is fucking mad. Calm down baby bitch. Maybe Playskool will make an Eva toy you can afford.
>>7618678Answer the question. How many anons on this site own evangelion toys without ever watching the show? Don't be a retard now.
>>7618667Also I doubt that kid even knew what NGE was. That toy was from Robin's personal collection.
I don't like Evangelion but own the toys. What does that make me?
>>7618679How the fuck would I know Ahmed? But the very first sentence in the OP of this thread states that he just started watching the show and now wants a toy of Unit 01. So more than you think.
>>7618650>>7618660>>7618667>>7618671Why are you so mad? Of course a thread about toys for a series is going to lead to some questions about the source material. This isn't anything to get up in arms about.
>>7618680>I doubt that kid even knew what NGE wasAnime conventions at the time would disagree>personal collectionIt was proved the director brought the toy on set, Robbin Williams went along with it>>7618683Op might be a shill from Netflix given how they do post on sfw 4channel board free of adult content.
>>7618687You're just shitposting now. Fuck off.
>>7618685>This isn't anything to get up in arms about.Yet you fucks made threads and stickys about oh so terrible homo erasure because of mistranslations. You're right, Netflix were the geniuses and should have spent all that money on redubbing instead of promoting the new children's toys that are coming out given how Bandai has a vested interested in this lucrative property. Shame about that dumb fly me to the moon song not being used, now tell me how its bad some dumb Frank Sinatra song not being used is a orange man bad thing
>>7618688Evangelion always brings shitposters, what did you expect? Now answer my quesiton about how many anons have watched the show and own children's toys, or are you really the brain dead one here?
>>7618694Fucking blow yourself up already.
I'm just glad I own Sachiel toys and none of you ever will, haha!
>>7618691I haven't made any threads like that but okay, keep projecting I guess.
>>7618695Answer the question anon. How many people truly give a fuck about some dumb cartoon no one actually gives a shit about anymore hence why all the new toys are from the rebuild movies? It truly is fascinating watching from the sidelines while you dumb retards tear each other apart over shallow children's shows.
>>7618383Those aren't the kaiyodo xebec figures those are the sega real models (actually figures). The Kaiyodo xebec figures are more hunched over and dynamic.
>>7618638Thanks for the info anon, this was pretty helpful. Too bad the thread went to shit though.
>>7618702I already told you. I. Don't. Know. Nor do I really care. Just expect natural conversation to sometimes move towards the source material when discussing product from said source material. Especially in a less structured place like 4chan. Maybe you should go back to place with more boundaries like the Fwoosh or something.
>>7618722Maybe I can say whatever I want, fuck you?
>>7618731So you admit you're shitposting?
Go away Netflix tourist. /tv/ was made for retards like you so stay there & stop shitting up other boards.
>>7618739I just really hate anime and anything that goes against Allah, Inshallah mama sikiyim. The toys are cool, thats all that matters here.
>>7618742>I just really hate animeThen why are you posting on a Japanese image board?
>>7618747This is /toy/. Rule 1 is 'toy, toy, toy'. That is the only thing that matters on this blue board of ours, nothing else. Fuck off to /tv/ or /a/ if you wanna cry about shitty cartoons.
>>7618754Dude, discussing product from a franchise is going to lead to some discussion of said franchise. If you can't accept that, the I don't know man, grow up? Kill yourself? I don't care. Just do something other than repeat the same thing over and over and over again.
>>7618759But anon, anime is cancerous, only the toys matter. How new are you?
>>7618760You have autism
>>7618761pot meet kettle
>>7618764I'm not the one sperging out about people talking about NGE in an NGE thread.
>>7618765But you are sperging about the redub over a dumb cartoon that every other autist makes fifty threads about on their relevant boards. Only the toys matter here, fuck the anime.
>>7618766Nope I said the new dub was fine and moved on. You were the one who autistically latched on to this.
>>7618768Oh, so its not okay to shit on a franchise that pays no respect to the fans? Fuck you buddy, Evangelion is the most cancerous show of all time.
>>7617959>just got into this show>>7618768>I said the new dub was fine So you're already familiar with the show and are now backpeddling because your dumb anime is shit no matter what language its in and only the toys matter?
>>7618771I'm not OP
>>7618667>Robbin Rip in Peace Williams>Rip in Peaceu fail
>>7618779How old are you?
>>7618769Most Evangelion fans are more cancerous than the actual show, though.
>>7618771Are toys the most important thing in your life?
>>7617959>what's the best figure of the eva 01?Personally I love my Tsukuda Hobby Unit-01. It's fucking huge, and it has a 90s charm to it that suits the show. Unfortunately the price on them has gone through the fucking roof.
>>7618787When I come here, yes. As per rule 1. That is all that matters on /toy/. How else can I get advice for what my tiny pony toys I can buy for my two daughters, inshalla they grow beautiful everyday.
>>7618792Shit, nevermind, I just realized I'm posting a statue in /toy/. It's not articulated. Sorry all.
>>7618793Technically you're not talking about toys. You're talking about the rules and are therefore breaking rule 1. Rule 1 anon. Rule 1. Back on topic. So I'm fucked if I want an anime version Eva? Shitty. With Netflix re airing the original series, do you think we'll get a modern figure of the anime version?
>>7618784This. Huge, huge fan of the show myself, but fuck I hate meeting other "Eva fans." It's attracted all the obnoxious edgelord emo fags and their camgirl girlfriends with daddy issues in recent years, and they perpetuate this "it's all about the ANGST and the DARKNESS" and it's like, will you fuck off already?Unless you're referencing those of us who fight over best girl.
>>7618802That shut him up.
>>7618805>>7618784Sometimes I feel like the only one in the world that’s a massive Eva fan but doesn’t buy into all the deepness and symbology and just likes robots beating up monsters.I too hate most of the fan base, particularly those that write whole fucking essays about how “deep” it is.
>>7618900so how many fucking toys of it do you own, /v/ tard?
>>7618900You're not alone anon. I too love the series for giant robots and monsters. Some of the deeper stuff is neat but a lot of it is just kinda up its own ass. It has some amazing designs though and I wish we got more toys of the angels themselves instead of mostly the Eva's and waifus.
>>7618912>instead of mostly the Eva's and waifus.
>>7618909More than you.
>>7618900>>7618912Yes, the pretentious faggots are annoying.
>>7618921I'm fine with the Eva's and waifus getting figures but I want some angels too. Those things are so cool looking.
>>7618958>people watch evangelion for the aliens and cyborgs
>>7618805>>7618900>>7618912>>7618939Waifu fags are annoying as well.>>7618912>>7618921>>7618958As for the Eva, it's only rebuild/redesign shit and poor MISATO SAN never got an action figure.We also need Kaworu and Shinji action figures.
>>7618963I'm hoping with the anime getting rereleased on Netflix maybe someone will do anime style Eva's. I really am not a fan of the rebuild designs. Too skinny. >>7618961Back to bed Ahmed
>>7618963>Waifu fags are annoying as well.Maybe, but at least they're more honest and don't pretend the shit is deeper than it actually is just so they can feel intellectual
>>7618971>Maybe>same retarded argument again and againThey're, waifufag
>>7618975Wouldn't he hate waifufags?>>7618976So waifufags and pretentious/symbolismfags are both obnoxious.Happy now?
>>7618968>I'm hoping with the anime getting rereleased on Netflix maybe someone will do anime style Eva'Maybe something good would finnaly come out of Gayfelix. >I really am not a fan of the rebuild designs.Based>Too skinnyAlso additional ugly color stripes, you don't fix what isn't broke.
>>7618802The Tamashii SPEC Evas are awesome but expensive, and be sure to get the Renewal version of Eva 01 (XS-01R) as the original had some breakage issues. They're display pieces rather than hand candy figures, but they are gorgeous.
>>7617959Revoltech is best reasonably priced one but theres better more expensive ones. >>7618032Yeah lots of bootlegs. I'd only buy stuff with actual pictures of the fig and make sure it's not coming from China.
>>7619013those are the soul of chogokin ones right?
>>7619065Nope, these are a separate line with removable armour over a base body.
>>7619069do they both have that then? they look super similar
>>7617965Best on it's scale by a far margin. Some QC issues tho, it's a bit of coinflip you could get one with a rough paintjob.
>>7617959Same here, but I have my eyes already on this one.
Nxedge or Parform Eva?
>>7619164NXEdge if you want chibi. Parfom if you want thicc milf robot.
>>7618682Someone with good taste.
Do I get the Bandai or Kotobukiya TV version of Unit 1? Both seem very good...
>>7619289Bandai for more accuracy, Koto for better articulation.
>>7619170>Parfom if you want thicc milf robotI didn't believe you, but holy kek, they even give "robots" a fat ass.Based Parfom.
I wish there were figma EVAs.
>>7619332tempted to get this so I can put it in the "craving my McNuggies" pose
>>7619320how much of the bandai model kit is unpainted? i'm tied between it, the soul of chogokin/spec one, and the 004 revoltech
>No one's posted objectively best Eva 01 yetDisappointed, ladies
>>7619164Parfom overall looks better. My friend has it and it's a sturdy, cute figure.
Where can I find the 004 revoltech Eva-01 and make sure it isn't a bootleg?
>>7619424Get the spec if you can afford it, though it's not very playable according to this anon >>7618574>>7619463Probably Mandarake
>>7619078They are the same, when I bought mine it was commonly referred to as SoC. When I'm home I can give reference photos of the XS-01R if you like. I'm actually considering selling it to trade up for the RAH reissue since I've been moving to 1/6 scale lately.
>>7619471yeah i'd love to see some in hand pics, there doesn't seem to be many>>7619468i can afford it yeah, i'm the dude tied between the 3 listed earlier. revoltech seems fun, model kit is least expensive, SOC seems to be most accurate
>>7619485I've owned all three you listed. My personal favorite is honestly the Kotobukiya kit. Most poseable, relatively accurate at a glance without comparative photos, and is an easy build and easy to paint. My only complaint is Koto's joints are made of fucking paper. They won't sell me replacement joints for my Unit 13 which boils my shit.Revoltech is pretty good, but any Revol figure I end up grabbing gets the least amount of attention. Dunno why, it's just there. I like it, but reach for the XS-01R or the Koto first when I'm bored at my desk.
>>7619487i'm not a big fan of having to paint my own figures because i'll become obsessive with making it perfect. looks like getting the SOC xs-01r or the revoltech will be my best options. would love to see some good photos
>>7617966fuck you for killing this board with your general faggotry
>>7619505This, would like to see a comparison between these two.
>>7619485https://imgur.com/a/lLTB3agI'm only halfway through my bi-monthly cleaning; don't mind the minor mess.I also just got home from a long ass day and I'm lazy as fuck to do better poses. I had the OG Revo release, but four of the joints straight up rotted (it was my FIRST collectible figure when I was much younger so I didn't care for it) so I tossed it. I only have 02 The Beast for comparison, which isn't fair since the proportions are all fucked.Flat finish: Kotobukiya 01 KitGloss: SoC XS-01RThe Koto kit his minimal paint apps I added, so its like 95" out of the box built. Let me know if you want specifics.
>>7618707Fixed it, thanks. Added the kaiyodo xebec.
>>7620091You know, I think I like any version of unit 00 with a preference towards blue.I like the Rebuild version of eva 01 moreAnd I like the TV version of eva 02 moreDoes anyone else have varied preferences?
>>7617970I came here because I knew this comment would be here. Had to check kek
>>7620141I personally prefer the TV designs and proportions but I do like the Rebuild colours, especially on 02. 00 looks better in blue for sure but if she had the extra white on her like 02 in Rebuild she'd look really nice.FWIW the Revoltech EvaEvos, whilst not very accurate, are probably some of my favourite designs for the Evas, they have that toned and dynamic look from the TV with the Rebuild colours- if the shoulder pylons were bigger then I'd call them the perfect Eva designs.
>>7620141Rebuild 00TV 01EoE 02I really like the yellow, bandages, and missile for rebuild 00. I want to see all evas in EoE proportions.
Do you think we'll finally get TV versions of the EVAs with proper proportions when the netflix rerelease renews interest in the series?
>>7620628Highly doubtful considering Anno has stated that he's returned to work on 3.0+1.0. We're gonna get a rush of new/refreshed Eva designs from the usual companies. That being said, 2020 will be the 25 year anniversary, so there's some chance something might come out for it.
>>7619332I’d return to that womb if you know what I’m sayin eyyy lads>>7620780>mfw NGE came out almost 25 years ago>mfw you’re gonna have to imagine a face cos I’m phoneposting and have no suitable images to hand
>>7620801Shut the fuck up retard, go back to your wagie cagie.
>>7620805>wagie cagieWhat did he mean by this?
>>7620840Why are you phone posting during your scheduled recess?
>>7618660Source material is relevant considering OP is asking specifically about **Evangelion** toys, not any robot. Many fans consider accuracy a factor.
>>7617965>>7619119I'm really considering getting the mafex figure over the RAH due to it being to big for my taste, and i dont feel like spending $260. Should i go for the Mafex and risk getting one with a shitty paint job, or go for a Revoltech?
>>7621657You shouldn't buy either.
>>7620844Why are you triggered by phone posting?
I saw this show is on Netflix I know nothing about it but heard the dub is awful what's the best dub?
>>7622037Just watch it in Japanese with subtitles. Also, don't watch the Netflix version, the subs are an atrocity and they removed the ED song (including when it appeared in the show itself). Pirate it.
>>7619332God I wanna fuck mommy 01 so badly bros
>>7617965I've been seeing a lot of people on these Eva threads not appreciating this guy. Is there something wrong with it? He looks awesome in my opinion?
>>7617965Click click click click click click
>>7622037ADV dub is gold standard
>>7620091Sure no prob. I think that's pretty much every TV eva version made. Only thing I didn't mention originally is Kaiyodo made two versions of Unit 02 for both their Xebec and Revoltech lines, the TV version and the EOE version, the Xebec figure pictured is the TV version the Revoltech figure pictured is the EOE version. Not a big issue but I just realized it looking over all of them.
A challenger appearshttps://otakumode.com/projects/evapacasso
>>7625622That's adorable and I kinda want one.
which is a better: Robot Damashii (Spirits) or Mafex?
>>7625784RD for sheer articulation/fun factor, Mafex for absolute screen accuracy.
>>7619332There's no issues with the Parfom one, right?
>>7620091Wrong lineart bro. The TV animation devolved into a completely different look
Ahmed is a fucking cunt, do not give him (you)s
>>7628190what did he do now? make fun of your dumb show for elliott rodger tier losers?
>>7628194No, he's just a cunt in general
>>7618185>and the chogokin is the big boy deluxe spenderHow is the chogokin tho? It's pretty old but I recall it's the only figure that sticks to that weirdly bulky animation/promotional model which I found kinda neat.>>7618225Wasn't there a non-SPEC SoC as well?
>>7622054>the subs are an atrocityI'm so fucking tired of this lie. ADV's subs were an atrocity. The Netflix version uses a more literal and correct translation. People are fucking whining to whine about anything and everything, but there is no issue with the translation. Shinji is the lowest of the low. Rei is not your doll. Kaworu never said "love". Children is exactly what the Japanese cast SAYS the entire series. We pronounce Evangelion based on how they say it so why is "children" incorrect when it seems to consider the pairing of child and Eva unit?Fucking give up whining about the subs. The subs are fine on Netflix. OMFG, there's no swearing. Guess what, there actually wasn't. That's another addition from ADV's poor translation.
>>7628207stop crying about your dumb dumb animations on a thread for children's toys. you retard
>>7628279lol no fly me to the moon in the netflix dub they must be poor!
can someone please explain this retarded form? was the designer excommunicated from the animation industry?
>>7628658It's ZA BEASTUAnd the rebuilds may be a statement about ignoring what anno was trying to tell you about reaching out to people in the real world even if it's frightening. A lot of people used eva to dive deeper into escapism, so he may just be trolling you we'll see.
>>7628944Gee thanks a lot EVA for popularizing a ton of shitty trends in anime to come.>popularized cruel deconstructions of classic genres>popularized the beta schoolboy archetype>popularized the massive waifu wars shit flinging>made niche otaku anime and non children's popular anime one and the sameGod EVA sure was influential to escapist otaku pandering anime in general.
>>7630369And I think he may regret that. The new preview is so over the top action and fan service that either he's gonna hit us HARD with an accusatory finger point, he doesn't care at all anymore, he just wants scuba gear money.Time will tell.
>>7630403I definitely prefer Gainax when it's their uplifting, OTTP action packed material such as Gunbuster and TTGL. That being said, Wings of Honneamise is a landmark achievement of anime film and is my favorite Gainax work by a long mile.
>>7630403I'm kinda hoping that the inevitable twist is something so out of left field that it somehow redeems the shitshow that was Q. Like, if halfway through the movie it suddenly turns into Puchi Eva (complete with squeaking gibberish voices and Evancho) and the ending sequence is a live-action ad-libbed screwball comedy with the voice actors in cosplay and Anno and friends doing toku mecha action ala Ultraman Returns. Which to be fair I could actually see happening, as IIRC when he's not depressed Anno is a massive goofball (see After The End where he briefly makes a cameo as the big bad in one of the attempts at a reboot).
Lol Vice sees evangelicals as problematic.
>>7617959I've not read the thread, but I've known Eva a while, so I can give good advice. First, you have to ask yourself, TV or Rebuild designs.For TV Designs, the Soul of Chogokin Spec are the best choice, bar none. Accessories, details, articulation, accuracy to line art. It all depends though on if you can find them for reasonable prices, I suggest lurking on Jungle Hobby or Mandarake for a while. The regular Soul of Chogokins can be a cheaper option. Try and get the renewal version of the Eva 01 Spec if you can, the first release had some fragility issues and couldn't raise its head well. If you prefer the thinner aesthetic the TV Evas often took, the Kotobukiya model kits are better, but those are model kits which are going to require some painting for all the details. Revoltechs are cheap and fun and can do all the poses you want, they're Revoltechs. Just don't expect tremendous line art accuracy. The Bandai model kits are old and trash, don't buy them unless you're happy with statues. One downside to collecting the TV series Evas is there are no mainline releases above 18-22cm tall, barring the crappy old Perfect Grade kit and a very difficult garage kit called Technique Impossible.The advantage of the Rebuild Evas is that there's more options. You have the Real Action Heroes NEO version, which they're rereleasing now, and is nearly 40 cm tall. Not bad as a centerpiece. MAFEX is available for a middle ground scale, as are the Rebuild kotobukiya kits. On the smaller end you have the Robot Spirits versions, which are very articulate and quite accurate to the movies, and you have the revoltechs, also highly articulate but very stylized. While it will be easier to find everything you want if you collect rebuild Evas, it will likely also be more expensive, as the prices on Japanese collectibles have increased considerably.
>>7628658>not liking the only good and original design in Rebuild crapAbsolute shit taste>retarded formCall that to the NuEoE designs with their extra color stripes.
>>7617994>>7617987>>7617980They changed some of the most iconic lines in both the sub and dub."I'm fucked up." became "I'm the lowest of the low."
>>7632837I'm so fucked up was shameless 90's edge mistranslation.
>>7621657I received mine a couple of days ago. No issues and looks better in hands than in the pics I had seen so far. It really feels like a mini RAH. Only go for the Revo if you don't mind a really inaccurate sculpt and just want a cheap alternative.
Mind if anyone that has the Parfom EVA-01 put it next to an average figma to see how big it is?
>>7632960Thanks for your input anon. I'm gonna go for it.
>>7628199The non spec SoC are so inferior than the spec ones that I guess they weren't worth mentioning.The old ones were good when they came out, but right now they're simply overpriced for what they give you. The only advantage of the old line is that they also had 03 and 04, but since they don't scale with the new ones, there's no point in considering them, IMO.I own the spec ones (both 00s, 01 and 02) and they're amazing. But I'm thinking of reselling them because they simply don't fit with everything else I own.Oh also, 01 and 02 are quite overpriced in the aftermarket.
The Revoltechs are floppy but pose fine if you are careful and come with a lot of accessories.
RD beast that I lost half of the back pieces in a move. Used some cut up Gundam spru's with orange nail polish as replacements lol.
This figure practically started my adult toy habit. All my older RD boxes haven't held up well but at least its complete.
I ordered the Eva-01 Parfom. I hope I made the right choice.
>>7635690Parfoms are high quality so you should be good. Post pics when you get it.
>>7636397Yes I will. Just waiting for a Nendo to come out so it'll ship with it.
So if I have a number of Monsterarts Godzilla figures and want anime accurate figures, I should just go with the older Revoltechs?
How big is the Mafex?
Have you ever seen such an eloquent box? He used stamps to ship, this is not an unboxing but this was the first time I'd ever gotten one like this.Maybe his parents or grandparents had a lot of stamps stored up, but the foam inside betrays he's an otaku with sales writing and stuff.
>>7641534The Universal Studios Evangelion 4D Motion Ride Popcorn Bucket.
>>7641539Flip the switch on the bottom, open his mouth and his eyes glow.
>>7641542Canned drink, Laserdisc and Beast Box for scale. I like it. I bought the drink plug today, I'll show pics of it when it arrives. SNACK IMPACT.
>>7641539>>7641542>>7641550where's the foam?
>>7641642More importantly, where's the popcorn?
>>7641719But most importantly, where's the caveman?
>>7618225The Robot Damashii are by far my favorites of the set. Wish some of the 3.33 suits got releases or atleast a mass production model.
>>7617965Was going to get the Mafex but the paint quality control was making me hesitate. Then Medicom announced a reprint of the RAH which the Mafex is just a shrunken version of anyway so I ordered that instead.
>>7642360Also, the RAH Unit 01 will go great posed with my Takara UW-04 Devastator (still haven't committed to a third party upgrade kit for UW-04).
>>7617959>2019>Just got into this show>2019Just buy a Funko Pop

>>7642430>Complaining about a show that was notoriously difficult to legally aquire becoming more accessibleGet over it. 4chan isn't your sooper sekret klub either. Why do you fags get so butt blasted when normies take an interest in things you like? I always get excited and want to share my passion for whatever it is they are suddenly interested in.
>>7642441why did it take netflix for you to give a shit about a show thats already existed for 20+ years? are you a dumb dumb zoomer that needs permission to legally view things?
>>7642450I watched the show years ago. But I also rewatched on Netflix and got to show my roommate it for the first time. After watching the show he now has a better appreciation for animem and watches more with me. Not everyone is willing not savvy enough to pirate. My roommate is computer illiterate and I doubt he'd even know where to look for the show online.
>>7642453Why the fuck would you not show your room mate the first dubs/subs instead of lower quality work pushed out by a brain dead company with no regard for quality?
>>7642454Because I already forward the original and wanted to see the differences. The new dub isn't really bad. It's just more of a straight translation than a localization like the original. Both have their merits and both have their faults. But yes, the original is better and I plan to show it to him eventually. But you haven't answered my original question. Why does it bother you when new people get interested in a franchise?
>>7642460>Why does it bother you when new people get interested in a franchise?Crippling autism
>>7633912Where did you get those buildings anon?
How insane would it be to attempt the Kotobukiya as my first model kit?
>>7643109not insane at all, but remember to take some breaks if you feel frustrated or spent.it doesn't look like the tv version, mind. as long as you're fine with this fact, you'll get a really poseable and cool kit
>>7642441Ah yes and hear we see the cancer that killed /b/
>>7643284>implying /b/ was ever good
I don’t like it becoming more accessible because all it has led to are endless hot takes from shitholes like Vice about how Shinji is actually trans or some bullshit.
I was wondering if anyone has built the Kotobukiya kits; I need the postcard in the instructions to order replacement parts and my roommate tossed the box and manual. Honestly, I'll give you like five bucks if you have it. I hate having my Eva 13 in pieces.
This thing looks spot on. How is it?
>>7643292It was in 2004 ;_;
How's the NXedge EVA-13?
How are these figures? Why can't I find any info on them or reviews?
>>7645473They're very old and barely poseable. Cool accessories for other figures though, and to be fair they do look nice for their age.
>>7643717the most accurate of all the eva 01 figures.cheap too. I higly recommend it. however:the arms are useless because of the rubber coating. you will have to paint the black segments inbetween the torso panels.you get a trashy off color sticker for the purple part above the chestplates.
>>7646344i'm interested, this'd be my first model kit. does it have a color guide or something i can use to get the right color paints?
Love my RD but its loose on the chest and right arm
>>7645473I bought the main 3 units back in 2007 or so. They were the best of best at the time. Since then they’ve become very dated compared to the stuff coming out now but I’m still really happy with them. I haven’t felt need to update them.
>>7646490I didn't bother painting it aside from the inner parts.those are 100% black so you won't have any problems with that. it's supposed to have a color guide in the manual, be warned that'll mean repainting all the purple parts as well.
>>7647137right, well i bought one. i'm willing to paint over the purple but why would i have to?
>>7618185>revoltechIt's more like end of eva look, kotobukiya is the only one for us wide shoulder niggas
>>7630369>popularized the beta schoolboy archetypeNo, blame it on the real culprit: Light Novels
>>7628207You have to take some liberties with it or else it sounds flat and too literal, that's because Japanese works different than English
>>7630369>>popularized the massive waifu wars shit flinging
>>7649065God she looks so good. I can't justify her at all (especially as I already have the Tamashii Spec Eva 01) but I want her.
What does" Item returned from import Customs" mean? I assume it means it WAS in customs and now is being returned to be mailed out.I'm the one that ordered the EVA-01 Parfom.
>>7651574Overall, really good. Feels just like a figma. It's not the most articulate Eva but moves where it needs to be, just don't expect RD or Revoltech level poses. The only issue was I can't get 100% of the plastic sheet off the neck and I don't want break it by trying to pull the joint (it's on a ball joint).
>>7618779Yes I'm pretty sure he's farting peacefully... Bless his soul.
I bought some of those decals from Ebay. Beast Box for scale. Pretty cool!
hey what was the deal with the releases on these guys? were there multiple versions or something? i keep seeing different editions and shit, is there one that just has all the accessories?
>>7653558Yes, the recent release of him has all the accessories.
>>7653558When it originally released, it was sold in two versions, one with the wings and one with the weapons. When they reissued it, they included everything in one box.
>>7653658>>7653645cheers. might buy the individuals so i can have one flyin and one beat to shit
What's with all the figures for this show being model kits or complete shit? Looks like Revoltechs are the only really good ones out there that don't require a ton of work.
Ok so which is the best Asuka toy?
Best Lance of Longinus-containing set?
>>7653959I said the Parfom was good. Also look for the SOC SPEC ones.
>>7654155revoltech 2.0 is ok. Real Action Heroes is decent but pricey. Only figma asuka is 2.0 test suit asuka.The phat compnay asukas seem neat but aren't screen accurate proportionally.
so where can one buy these old revoltechs? seems like they're sold out everywhere or being sold by someone with like a 70% rating on amazon
>>7618383I remember getting the old Kaiyodo ones at my old comic shop during my college years after seeing Eva on VHS in high school. I think I even got one or two of the metallic repaints.
>>7619428 I bought this in Japan and lugged it back to the US.
>>7633902That's a Revo? I thought that was a separate non-Revo Kaiyodo figure with an angel base. I bought it... but never found a place for it and it's still in the box. I remember it having a light up base.
>>7641550>>7641542>>7641539I am jelly
>>7641539>>7641542>>7641550You didn't get the matching entry plug souvenir cup?
>>7654155Figma asuka is nice but it isn't the regular red plug suit. It comes with good accessories.
>>7649065which one is this one and do they have an eva 02?
>>7660187You didn't read the thread?
>>7660463Metal build, Eva 02 is coming but sold out. Thank Chinese scalpers. Good fucking luck finding either.
what company made the biggest eva toy?
Built the Kotobukiya kit for EVA-01 from 2.0. Digging it even with my amateur model skills.
>>7662488What scale is it?
>>76641321/400. Took some more pics too.
>>7618225owned the 400% model, thigh broke trying to make it crawl, knee snapped from being weak over stretched. I bought the rebuild ver. and tried part swapping but mid section parts are different.
>>7667614>>7667616>That metallic paintjob>That designThat actually cool headsculptOK, I want it.
>>7660187What could it be, Reddit?!
Obligatory basedboy smile from 01.It's holds 12oz maybe, it's very small.
Human Refreshment Project. Oh well that's all for now.
>>7617965Terrible. Worse figure I bought in years.
>>7617959EVA-01 Bandai Movie Realization. Best sculpt and detail for your buck. https://www.amazon.com/Neon-Genesis-Evangelion-EVA-01-Realization/dp/B000U9329W/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=EVA-01+Bandai+Movie+Realization&qid=1564171353&s=gateway&sr=8-1
>>7643717>>7646344it's the old Bandai LMHG from the 90'sI heard it's pretty old and needs painting for color accuracy. The Bandai Rebuild kits are supposed to be a lot better with good color seperation but they still have the rubber arms that limit elbow articulation. If you want the TV version of Unit 01 the Koto kit has better arm articulation >>7646490plastic models will always have a color guideyou may need to look up the translation for the correct color names
>>7669337>mine is superior
>>7668756>>7668758>>7668845I shouldn't have passed up the chance to buy the popcorn bucket for $50
>>7642336 I'd still like to get RDs of the TV versions and the "End"-style version of unit 02.
>>7668845>no Unit 2 popcorn bucket>no Mech Eva Godzilla popcorn bucketSmalltime.
>>7669390There's some used for about $60 shipped on ebay right now.
>>7669455If only. I've long given up on more RD Evas.They couldn't even give us Mark.06 and finish the standard body type Evas from 2.0.
>>7669972Yeah. Which is sad. Did the Eva RDs not sell well? I remember the Beast being on sale a lot, but have a hard time thinking they couldn't make bank from tv versions. There's obviously still a market for evas in general. Bandai's decisions often seem so arbitrary and mysterious.
>>7670675Bandai's relations with Eva seems odd. They have all the money so I don't see why they don't pump out figures and plamo of all shapes and sizes constantly. Evas, pilots, and Angels. One reason I can think of is they want to focus on IPs they own (or practically own). So Gainax related IPs are more of the outsiders. Kaiyodo on the other hand is tight with Gainax and continues to focus on Eva figures, so it could be one of the rare times Bandai decided it's not worth to compete. Koto is doing the kits as well. Bandai's latest Evas also seems to be purposefully different, big headed versions or expensive diecast originals, something the other companies are not likely to make.
Got this oldie off of eBay for about $60 shipped from Canada. What am I in for?
>>7670879Probably sticky plastic from plasticizer leakage.
>>7671081it was mint in the box, if that'd help that
>>7672457Doesn't matter. If it leaks it leaks.
>>7672571what would cause it to leak?
>>7677237It's really up to the mixture of the plastic. Nothing really "turns" a non leaking plastic into a leaking plastic. Some environmental factors might make it worse like temperature, maybe humidity? I don't know if that particular revoltech leaks plasticizer, but it was a common problem in the early years.
>>7677256fair enough i guess. i've also got the HG model kit on the way but i don't know when it'll be here. gonna see which one i like more
>>7678115I hate the fact that these will be needlessly expensive. Had these been made 5 or 6 years ago they would probably retail for less than $200 but I wouldn’t be surprised if they sold for twice as much when they finally get released.
what stands work with the bandai honby hg kits????? they cant stand on their own.
Just got the rebuild 2.0 kit. Any advice for painting the thing? Likely will just do details like red on the chest and coloring the eyes.
Not gonna lie, this makes me want to pick up the Metal Build. Giving it the proper shoulder pylons and head makes it look fucking amazing.
>>7678115Please make the whole cast.
>>7682244Sorry, dumb question, but is this third party add-on?
>>7678118The arms and legs are skinny and lanky, TV Evas were more muscular.>>7667614>still no redo of TV ver RevoltechFuck this gay earth
>>7670879if it's new in the box it's gonna be stick as hell brother
>>7671081>>7683977just got it, not sticky at all, dunno what you guys are on about. revo joints are a little frustrating but it's a nice figure. will post pics soon
>>7685367That's good to hear. It was a possibility, nothing more. I think it happens when the factory messes up the mixture ratio, like they're not as accurate to the specifications given by Kaiyodo. Because I assume they would know how not to make the plastic sticky, and yet it occurs time to time. By the time they notice the mistake thousands of figures are already produced so they can't do shit about it.
>>7685426the only issue i can find with the figure is slightly off eyes and the hips being a tad discolored. overall pretty fun to pose around, much better than my revo predator who cant even stand
>>7685442>revo predatorThat was garbage the moment some idiot placed in joints. Looked really nice at the sculpting stage.
>>7678115>>7678117>>7678118>>7678119Ok wow, I hope these aren't too expensive. I want a normal Unit 02 and not that gamma shit. I have a Unit 01 RAH.
>>7685481>threezero>diecast>20-30cm>not too expensive?Uhhh,,,
>>7685442this guy here, just took some photos of the revo 01
will post more if you guys want
can someone provide some out of box pics of this fig
>>7678119rebuild designs are so shitty. idk why they gave 02 that stupid looking ninja crest headband thing. the new designs are so amateur, they lack any sense of restraint or nuance.
