So there's finally a 1/6th scale Evangelion Eva01 figure. It looks freaking fantastic! I believe its about 15 inches?

Wow that's actually really cool! I get tired of diecast stuff so a nice high quality posable figure like this is much preferred. Plus, its height and build seem a lot more accurate than the usual figures.

I still need to get Asuka and Rei Medicom figures. They tend to go for pretty cheap. I hope they do an Eva 02. That one is my favorite, especially the End of Evangelion design for it.

Horray for Medicom ! I'm so glad to see that Eva and I hope the rest will come too.
Now the price but I don't think it will be cheap :o.

A 1/6 Eva 1 would be 45 foot tall. Not very affordable to most people, plus, where would you find a detolf to put it in?

Oh wow, that looks incredible! Medicom's extreme skinny proportions have worked out for once, hahaha.

But for general poseability, I'd stick to my Robot Damashii figures.

Interesting. I already have the Perfect Grade Eva from Bandai, but this one looks very nice. There are some rubber parts like the Bandai kit.
You can trust Medicom when it comes to rubber. I have lots of Ultraman and monster figures, all dressed in rubber and they hold pretty well through out the years.

Evangelion is my favorite anime of all time and this is a must buy for me as I've been looking for a big Unit-01 figure for a long time. I had been considering buying the Perfect Grade Model kit, but this is much better. I just hope it is durable.

That's reassuring to hear about the rubber. I'll probably keep this in a neutral standing pose anyway though as I have a bunch of smaller Eva 01's for crazy posing.

You think so? I can't see it being much more than their usual stuff. My guess would be 250-300. If anything it will cost a lot because of the weak dollar, but with AmiAmi 20-30% off discount it is probably a pretty decent buy for your typical Japanese fan.

This is not the 40 inch model, the linked press releases say this is 390mm or 15 inches tall.

I'd like to see more about this but Medicom will most likely charge $300-400 for this.

Supposedly at the end of this year but there is no clear date. Then it will be over a year till we get it here. Then there is also a 4th movie planned but that is likely 3 years away.

The two new films (1.1 and 2.2) are AMAZING!!! I actually just watched them last week on Blu-ray. They are a complete retelling/reimagining of the series.

The original Evangelion is the greatest work of art of the 20th Century. :lecture

I am hesitant. So is my niece. She watched the whole shebang (censored the movie a bit) a few months ago and she's more reluctant to watch them than I am.

That may be shellshock, though. If The End of Evangelion wasn't too much to process, then the first 24 episodes probably were.

I feel the faster pacing keeps it interesting. Unfortunately this effects the deeper impact that each angel has, but so far i love it.
I wonder what they are going to do with the next two movies since they have blown through quite a lot of the story by the 2nd one?

While i did love the original anime series i absolutely hated that acid trip it had for the last two episodes. Apparently it was the internal struggle he felt personally through out the true plot of the last two episodes which was later shown in "The end of Evangelion". I didn't like how philosophical it got in the end of that movie either.

Being a huge fan of the original series and the final film the end of evangelion, I was surprised to see how let down I was by the remake film of the series in evangelion 1.1. I can't stress enough how much I didn't like that movie. It was almost the same exact thing as the show with some pieces taken out. was the second film any different or was it the same shot for shot with some scenes and episodes removed? I was expecting a revamped story, not just visuals.

I think the story is going in a more interesting direction now. The 2nd movie was soo awesome, i just hope they can keep up this momentum. Speaking of momentum, whats taking them god damn long with 3.0?? I also hate how it takes so long for them to release on Bluray (I prefer the english dub)

The good thing is we get more merchandise, i hope they make some 10 inch Eva figures. While i love the Robot Damashii figs theyre too small for me. Also this Medicom, while awesome, is too big for my tastes too.

2.22 has taken a very different path from NGE, and is moving towards a very different story. You'd need to check it out before making a judgement, otherwise you're really missing out. :exactly: The Blu-ray also has incredible audio.

Interesting to see how they're gonna take it to the next level in 3.0 and then Final, considering how 2.0's ending was already EoE level climatic. (though obviously not as crazy and effed up)

The 2.0 Blu-ray took forever to come out, and the Hong Kong edition is not region compatible with my country. I may succumb to a cam-rip for 3.0.

Yea definitely give it a shot, the first one is very much what you say it is but the second is just pure awesome. On bluray these are some of the most impressive animated movies i have seen.

Yea it does take them a while but they are all really nice quality. I would rather wait and get the best possible animation then have them rushed and it look mediocre.

The SPEC Eva figures are really nice i would recommend those. I have almost all of them, they are a nice size with a good amount of metal in them. But I totally agree i can't wait to see what new stuff we will be getting.

Yeah it is about $216 or so before shipping at AmiAmi. Surprisingly affordable considering what it is. I really want to get it, but I wish we knew a little bit more about the materials they use. If it is similar to with Kamen Rider and such then I imagine it should last though obviously they designed it to be extremely posable unlike the Kamen Rider figures so I wonder what Medicom ended up doing to achieve that.

Well the bonus parts for those who preorder on time looks to be an AT Field accessory, which is a pretty huge accessory, and then a set of hands for the pose where it is grabbing at the AT Field. It's actually a pretty cool inclusion I suppose. Personally with something this huge I would really like to have the running pose assuming the figure can handle that for prolonged periods of time.

The price on amiami seems reasonable. Despite reports of Medicom's recent efforts being less flaky, past experiences did leave a bitter aftertaste, so I'm going to hold out and see what reviewers say about it.

If only there's a large scale Eva-01 statue (preferably in berserk mode or stylised), I'd so go for it!

No matter which company released this figure, I would still suggest being a bit worried about it, more so if Hot Toys had done it rather than Medicom. This is definitely unfamiliar to all the 1/6 companies and I think Medicom will probably try to take this route if it works out for them as Bandai is one of the only major companies who do anime robot releases and since they tend to do expensive eight inch diecast stuff, this tall vinyl plastic style would be unique mostly to Medicom. With that being said it is hard to say how this might last.

For what it is worth Medicom has recently used various leather like materials on some of their figures as well as many jump suits. Their Project BM Kamen Rider figures seem to hold up nicely, but they are restrictive in articulation. Their Darker Than Black Hei figure uses a leather like material for his suit and I have had zero problems with it so far. It is also worth pointing out I frequently put him in extreme poses since I find that he is surprisingly flexible even with the outfit. Finally, they have a new Gantz lineup, but I hear that the suit restricts articulation quite a bit. I haven't heard anything about it tearing of breaking or anything though.

I say give Medicom a chance, but it is worth always waiting off and seeing how people think the figure is or how it will hold up regardless of who makes it. Of course this is not always needed, but sometimes problems can happen where you least expect it. For example, the ThreeA Rex figure I hope will be awesome, but I can imagine all sorts of issues that it might end up having, none of which are really apparent to us right now.

First look and impression of the box; corrugated print on semi gloss paper. I'm not sure if there is laminant or matte varnishing, hard to tell. There are no spot varnishing, so I would say straight-up 4-color...avoid scratch marks, water splashes, and oily fingers. The measurement size is 17" tall by 13" wide by 10" deep. Top of the box is the only opening flap. There is another box inside, housing the figure with see-through acetate. http://www.stufficreate.com/shared/medrah_eva01.jpg

There will never be a properly scaled Eva figure.. because Gainax never stated their official height, it varies depending on the mood of the animators and what size will comply to a particular scene. Sometimes 40 meters, other time 80 meters, and at the very most of 200 meters :rotfl

The SPEC Chogokin ones you mean? IF you are a big Eva Fan IMO go for RAH they are worth the money and it captures the animation model perfectly. The Gokin ones do not capture it the same. Plus these RAH ones are huge!

As far as leads go check amazon.co.jp if you have someone witha japanese address its the best price

Here is the SPEC compared to the RAH

Wow you are right it is, I didnt even notice it changed in the movie when i saw it lol. I noticed the changes in the 02 but not the 08. Why did the 08 even change it was not damaged? Either way i like both looks, maybe medi will make both heh.

Well, 15 years have passed between the 2nd and 3rd movie. So I'd imagine that Eva would have been upgraded.

You'd have to watch it. If I talk about it more then I'd be spoiling the whole movie.

I did watch it and the 08 was never shown in 2.22. Both of those designs were in 3.33. In the beginning in space/when shinji breaks out then it changes for final fight scene. So that was after the 15 year jump.

The movie as far as i can recollect never says why this one changed only the 02 due to damage

I think that's cause 1 & 2 followed the original pretty closely.

3 was okay till the end. I dunno WTH was going on during that end battle scene after he pulled those spears off of the back of that white corpse thing or whatever. I got a faint idea but I'm not too sure.

I have the Awakened version and I paid 400 for it from BBTS (still in my pile of loot, so I haven't seen it yet).

I could have gotten it for *maybe* 100 less from some Japanese online stores but they required immediate payment and didn't trust that they would get them in stock for sure, due to it being so limited.

Yeah that just isn't true. I buy from Japanese sources all the time and it's usually cheaper than Ebay or BBTS, which is sad. Haha.

SAL and EMS only costs about $25-$35 bucks tops. Both have tracking. SAL takes about 2 weeks.
That's still a little over $200. Maybe $215. ($180+35).

Also, BBTS has to get a discount on shipping a large lot for sale. They probably only pay a few dollars per piece to ship a crate. Say they ship 20, and pay $300 shipping. That's $15 bucks per item.

So they charge $250 before they ship it to you? That's $265-$270 at least.

That's a $60 dollar markup for nothing.

That is just low level scalping if you ask me. I made some Masterpiece Transformers pre-orders with BBTS a few months ago, but you can find cheaper distributors in asian countries. I know, It's business and I would love to support an American store, but they have to price competitively or I'll take my money elsewhere. $50 bucks makes a big difference.

Empir3
05-24-2013, 02:20 PM
Well it all depends on the price they get it at and who is importing it for them. I work for an online retailer and we do not always get the same discount as a domestic dealer on imports because it is done via different distributors. Also you dont know how big of a pallet they are shipping over at the time etc. Are they marking up yes, is it for no reason maybe not.

Like say you are offered 30 percent off as wholesale then you have to ship it to the USA. You cant sell it for the same as the domestic companies who have no import costs, they are already at a profit margin advantage. So your 30 percent becomes like a 20 or 15 percent discount.

Gakken85
05-24-2013, 02:30 PM
Could be. I'm sure their are factors I'm not taking in account. BBTS seems to cater to people who are less savy about where to get the best deal, which is fine, but I'm going to save as much money as I Can. For $50 bucks I could get a Super Robot Chogokin Toy or save up for something else.

But to your point of domestic vs international., these toys aren't MADE in japan anymore, so they have to be imported to them too for sale.

Most of them are made in Southeast Asia or China now.

Japan and Korea are really just design houses these days.

Yes but there is a difference, when say you order from Hasbro a US company they import the items and then distribute them. So you pay shipping around the US.

Medicom is not a US company so you pay to import it here from there and then pay for shipping around the US. It is not the same beast.

Could US companies sell it for less sure, but they would be making much less and make it harder for them to continue to bring over more product. If you dont want to pay the mark up dont no one is forcing you. They are merely offering another option to people who dont like to import or whatever. IMO it is not unjustified what they ask most of the time. Sometimes it is a huge mark up and thats due to how hard it is to get too but thats an entire other issue.

Thank you for the pics, momaw! :( I really hope my WL converts. Do you happen to have Kaneda's bike, momaw? If so, how deep is Nigouki's red compared to the bike's? Thx!

Unfortunately I don't have Kaneda's bike.

Can't compare to Unit 1 as I don't have mine yet, but I love it. It's not very heavy (can't imagine 1 being lighter). The finishes on it are fantastic. This is the Eva figure I've been waiting years for.

Any suggestion for good children/pilot figures to accompany these evas?

I don't like the Medicom ones as they are too big for my taste and are also very expensive.

What do guys think about the Revoltech ones? I like the scale but how's the quality?

I'm also looking at gashapons as they are the closest possible to the actual scale of pilot-eva available right now.

Yeah, they still haven't released it in Japan so my local dealer still can't say if they'll be able to get it for me. :(

Problem with Revo and Figma is that so far both haven't released Shinji. :slap

ChrisM
07-21-2013, 01:15 PM
Since the 'correct' scale would make them about 1/4 of an inch, I'd go for the Figmas with the entry plug chair.

I haven't seen any 01's WITHOUT the AT field. haha

As you can see from the pic above, the AT Field is supposed to be limited edition and the marketing material from Medicon said only the initial release would have the AT Field. That said, I'm not convinced there has been a second release which would mean you are right and they all have the AT Field. I'm not sure they sold in high enough quantities to warrant a second issue looking at how few people report ownership on various boards around the net. I don't buy much Medicom so maybe someone else can comment as to how often they re-issue items once sold out.

momaw

I've had a chance to play with my new Unit 1 and have some thoughts (and heaps of pictures) on Unit 1 and Unit 2 differences.

As was mentioned by another poster, Unit 1 is light. Unit 2 is a little heavier. By contrast the box for Unit 1 is heavier than Unit 2.

Regarding the box, when I opened up Unit 1 I was disappointed to find it was not a window box like Unit 2. But then I opened the box and found a second one inside which was a window box. So it seems Unit 1 has a standard box and then for the first run limited edition it is double boxed with the extra pieces. Unit 2 just had the single window box which has limited edition plastered all over it. This to me lends credence to the idea that there will be no re-issues after the first run as Medicom has given up the packaging style from Unit 1 which was clearly intended to cater for an initial limited release and then a standard release.

I think the build quality on Unit 2 is better. It feels more solid in the joints. Likewise the paint on Unit 2 has a glossier and more natural feel. I think they have got some of the colour into the plastic on Unit 2 rather than just painting it as Unit 1 is. Looking at pics of Unit 0, it seems to have the more matt finish of Unit 1 rather than the gloss of Unit 2 so they may be going back to that style of painting. I also find the wrist pegs on both to be a little loose.

All up though, they are fantastic and go well together. While pricey I think they are the best representation of the Eva's so far and while I enjoy my smaller scale Eva', you really want these to be big and the Medicoms are.

Now, pictures.

I was so happy that I was finally able to get this figure but my happiness was quickly overshadowed by disappointment as I was checking my 00 tonight. :(

The joint on the left foot of my 00 felt really loose so I checked what was wrong and found out that the screw that should be holding the foot to the peg was missing. :(

Hey guys. So just was wondering if someone could give me some input on these. I'm a huge Evangelion fan so these are really damn alluring! I was just wondering how durable they are and if the rubber coated arms hold up or if there are any common problems or anything. Its a lot of money and I'm doing my best right now to sell some stuff over on some other boards to buy. I'm thinking I may order EVA-01, was thinking I'd go with the EVA-02 Gamma, get a preorder on amiami but 01 is just such a classic its hard to resist. Speaking of 01 anyone experience any horn breaks? Thats the piece other then the rubber I'd be most worried about. Anyway thanks for the imput and if anyone can point me to the best place to order 01 that would be much appreciated. :)

09-21-2013, 10:27 PM
So far mine has no problem. I have my doubts too on the rubber arms over time that's why I don't pose them in "extreme" action poses. With the horn, just remember to always secure the fig with the stand that comes with it to avoid accidental falling and you should be fine. :)

Great review! I've got both 01 and 02 and should be getting 00 early next week. Although everyone says that the 02 has better QC than the 01, I find that the 01 has a generally more solid feel than my 02. My 02's knees are a little looser than my 01's, and the joint on the right thigh that allows it to rotate is a little loose, so much so that it gets a little tough in posing it without the right leg rotating out and making the whole thing take a face plant. The rubber covering on the arms scare me. Every time I bend the arms at the elbow, a little bit of moisture (?) comes out of the crease. Weirdest thing. It's probably oil from the rubber being squeezed out as pressure is applied to it. Takes the joy out of leaving it in fun poses :(

Edit: My first post!

That's weird Rikitiki - What's the heat situation in your place?

One thing I don't like about the 00 is that it doesn't have a knife hand to hold the knife from the 01... that's really annoying. haha. It actually has 10 hands, where the 01 has 12.

I live in SoCal and I don't generally leave the Evas near any heat source. Gakken85, let me know if you ever experience this. It happens to both my 01 and 02. Even if I leave the elbows bent for about 5 minutes or so, the area where the rubber creases starts to get a bit shiny from the grease-like substance.

Bummer about the lack of a knife with 00! I was hoping to give one of 02's knives to 00, but it doesn't even sound like they provide the knife hands.

So my EVA-01 arrived today. Have some questions regarding QC, I want to know if all this is normal or if I got a derp one. Firstly is it normal for the toe portion of the foot to be so loose? Mine are loose enough that I would never trust them to support any weight, they feel almost loose enough to move by blowing on them. Is there anyway to tighten these up or if I contacted medicom would it be parts they could fix? Second is it normal for the torso armor sections to not line up properly? On mine the upper most purple piece, right below the black diamond is noticeably off center. Also wondering if the, for lack of better term, butt plate is supposed to move around. Mine is kinda floppy. There are also some light scuffs on a few places on the armor and the longest of the 3 entry plugs is warped. :( Other then those issue it looks killer, just not sure how to display him, definitely won't fit in my detolf at full height.

Regarding the foot problem, try to pull the foot out and see if it is screwed to the peg. My 00's right foot was also very loose when I first got it then when I tried to pull out the foot, that was when I found out that it was missing a screw.

The ankles on mine aren't all that loose, one is a little looser the other but not dramatically. The parts that are lose are the toes themselves. If I balanced him in a position where the weight was slightly forward he would faceplant as the toe articulation is ultra loose.

Yes, the "toes", or the articulated part of the feet, are a little loose on my 01 and 02 (02's a little tighter but not by a whole lot). My solution was to stick a little bit of blue tack in the inside bottom of the toes so the two parts of the articulated foot stay together. The whole thing will still tilt over if you don't properly align the toy with its center of gravity because of the relatively small feet. But my non-permanent solution helps with the balance.

With regards to the purple torso piece below the chest, it's center on mine. Have you tried gently nudging into place? I wouldn't force it though! One thing to look out for is the plating around the waist/crotch area. Try not to grip it in that area when you move the hip joints as you might crack the glue that holds the pieces together. I would grip the entire body instead. They seemed to have fixed this in the 02 version.

The "butt piece" is connected to the internal rubber/cloth suit and is not connected to the figure itself. You're fine there.

That was the very first thing I tried. I though perhaps the torsos had articulation up that high and it was just twisted but as far as I can tell there is none. :/
