Kaiyodo is going to release the Revoltech Yamaguchi No.69 EVA Provisional Unit-05 ( エヴァ仮設5号機 ) action figure from the anime movie “Evangelion 2.0 You can (not) Advance” ( 新劇場版エヴァンゲリオン「破」 ). Will be released in June 2009. Around 160mm tall, 2,286 yen.
Here are the EVA-01, 02, and 05! For those people who have the older version of 01 and 02, they said this Ver.2.0 are almost 100% as same as the old ones except the new joints on their foot and the new weapons. They said it’s really ripoff but since I don’t have the older version, it doesn’t really matter to me.
For the EVA-05, or I should call it Unit-05, looks really um… unique(?). I don’t really like it, it looks like a guntank to me. As for the pilot, they still haven’t announce who is this person be, but most likely it’s the new girl Mari.
As for the EVA-01 and 02, I have no complain. They looks really cool just like they should be. But what the heck is the wing thing for EVA-02? It can fly?? No kidding man…. (-______-.
Btw, all the EVA-01, 02, and 05 comes with the bonus mini Jerknoid (those little green, red, purple figures in the pic below). I don’t care about the figures, but I would love to disassemble them and just get the revoltech joints. Oh, this bonus only limited to the first production bunch.
