There are a few Japanese titles that you really need to see at least once in your lifetime. Two of those are Godzilla and EVANGELION. Each is amazing in their own rights, but what happens when you put them together? You get the most amazing abomination of a character that you could ever imagine: Aoshima announced a collaboration Godzilla vs. EVANGELION Type-3 KIRYU Unit-01 plastic model.
Just look at it:
The Godzilla vs. Evangelion project is a dream collaboration that started when Hideaki Anno, the director of the EVANGELION series, became the director of Shin Godzilla. The Type 3 KIRYU Eva Unit-01 Color Ver. that became a trending topic during that project is now available as a pre-painted plastic model.
The fuselage is based on the Type 3 KIRYU from the 2002 film Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, and is finished in a purple color scheme inspired by EVANGELION‘s Unit-01. Each part has been molded and colored to match the colors of the setting, allowing you to create a high-quality replica Type 3 Mecha-Godzilla Unit-01 color just by assembling it. Of course, the snap-on system is used, with no need for adhesives, and the kit has been enhanced in both mobility and construction.
The Godzilla vs. EVANGELION Type 3 KIRYU Eva Unit-01 Color Ver.is available for pre-order through the EVA Global website for ¥13,750 (Approx. $130 USD) and will be shipping starting in June 2021. The EVA Global site is set up to handle international orders, so if you’re looking to get your hands on this, you should have no trouble doing so.
