EVA-02 Production Type Kaiyodo

Name: EVA-02 Production Type Action Figure
Version: Metallic Red
Size: 15-20 cm
Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Company: Kaiyodo
Sculpted by: Katsuhisa Yamaguchi
Released: late 2002
Added to collection: 04/01/06

Detailed review here.

This unit came with a progressive dagger, a handgun (+ silencer), an assault rifle, and a sword for some reason. The plug of the umbilical cable is hard to pull-out from the back. The plastic cable was curled all over the place so I had to dip it in hot water to straighten it out and then followed by a quick dip in cold water. The tip of the rifle was slightly cock-eyed as well. As usual, various pairs of hands are available- there's even a 'thumbs-up'.

The 2 EVAs make a great pair- couldn't be bothered to get EVA 01 to complete the trio. Kaiyodo is releasing another EVA action figures series soon (the
Revoltech line) - the joints will allow much more movements and greater poseability. But the figures are much smaller- I might do some research on it later.

hehe, GI Joe guns are definitely too small. The guns came with the EVA.

I luv unit-2, its my fav. eva aside from unit-3. Question tho, does the figure's eyes open? In the show unit-2's real eyes are under the helmet and can be seen when unit-2 is under high stress. is there a figure with opening eyes? :/
