I read from somewhere that it's 22cm in height. The head design (and the long neck) seems odd - so I'm gonna pass on this.

It was on Amazon US for $240 for a couple of hours.

Otherwise I'd check back near release date for additional stock. Able to nab a few MBs this way.

To have missed it by such a short amount of time is absolutely maddening. Getting screwed by the time zone difference makes it feel like this 8-inch toy is pitting us against each other.

Be interested to hear your thoughts, I've found a UK seller with this still available (& the Great Mazinger one as well) & although I was never a fan of the Anime itself I love the EVA designs

Good news if you missed this and don't want to pay double to triple retail - re-release coming soon.

https://tamashii.jp/special/metalbuild/evangelion/

I'm all for a good limited edition, but the sell out on this in seconds was nuts. Especially hard for those who missed out as some stores clearly held back stock just so they could mark up later.

Rumour has Unit 2 coming soon too.

Femtech
03-01-2019, 08:58 AM
I was lucky with the initial pre-order, but that's really cool that more people will get to own it. If 02 is in the works, I wonder if its design will sport more than just a different head and paint scheme...

EDIT: Forgot that the chest and front shoulder braces are different in the original designs, as well.

I hope so. The jewels in my Eva collections are the medicom Unit 0, 1 and 2. The trio in metal build may trump that.

I kept trying to get him to send me the shipping information and when he finally did he sent me a tracking number and said it will be sent on mar 24 to 28. Every time I try and trace the tracking number on japan post I get that it does not exist . I entered a claim with pay pal and they sent an email stating they expect to get back in a month I got a answer a week later and they refunded my money.

I look up the item on the sellers website he had 5 in stock for $ 388 now he has 6 . Dude was trying to stall for time and sell it from underneath me what a joke instead of some money now he has none their is a limit to how much we are willing to pay and collectors dont take kindly to scalpers. I get it items go up in value over time but this behavior is a joke.

I am hoping the us distributor blue fin will be able to fulfill all the orders. Amazon says it's coming in in April 16 or something like that you never can tell they can change it .

I know they had some orders from threea products they sent me an email canceling my order based on lack of availability.

Should we expect a re-release of unit 1 along with the pre-orders for unit 2? Or does that normally happen separately?

Looks like p.o. goes up 6/24/2019 for the red one, November release. Purple one gets a rerelease in September? Maybe I'm seeing that wrong, but that what I gather from their web pages.

Because they look good? They do have anime accurate figures for sale online too

I think the toys that look like the cartoon are way better.

It's unusual to see people going out of their way to get the "reinterpreted" versions. I don't remember that happening with Gundam or Macross. Most collectors want the toys that look the most like the source material.

CrankbaitJon

Not most when it comes to Eva, hence the price. I mean a lot of Gundam figures are not cartoon accurate, especially Metalbuild.

Well two reasons, evangelion has never had the high end treatment, the closest is medicom, and two it's the metal build line, combine metal build with Eva and its selling out just like gundam.

I personally prefer the metal build look to anything else Eva related. Also a lot of the stuff that makes it look different can be removed but I personally have my Eva 01 out with all the armor attachments on.

Also its Eva, pretty much anything Eva related is selling out, there's a certain cult following that Eva has that I don't see with other anime merch.
