It seems like anywhere you look recently, there is news about EVANGELION in some fashion: the movie being delayed, special cafes popping up, or really awesome collaboration products like the one that we’re going to be talking about here. Today, Prime1Studio made the announcement that they will be releasing a statue of Unit 13 from the upcoming EVANGELION 3.0+1.0 film. What makes this statue unique, aside from being of Unit 13, is that it is massive. When I say massive, I mean 160cm tall (5.2 feet tall). This is something that will certainly be the talk of the town if you get one of these in your possession.
Evangelion Unit 13 made its debut in EVANGELION 3.0 and is piloted by both Shinji and Kaworu. It has four arms and uses the Spear of Longinus, which ultimately ends up piercing the EVA in the movie. If you have seen the newest trailer for EVANGELION 3.0+1.0, you would notice that there is in fact Unit 13 going to battle with Unit 01. Seeing that both Shinji and Kaworu are needed to pilot Unit 13, it is unknown at this time who exactly is piloting Unit 13, as it is doing battle with Unit 01 which is piloted by Shinji. The origins of Unit 13 are still unknown, but hopefully, those mysteries will be solved once we have the opportunity to see EVANGELION 3.0+1.0.
The EVANGELION Unit 13 statue has started pre-orders on the Prime1Studio website and will set you back a whopping ¥167,900 (Approx $1,550 USD). For that price you get a plethora of items that you can use on the statue, such as two Spears of Longinus that are taken directly from the EVANGELION 3.0 film. If you have a burning hole in your pocket and if you’re a massive EVANGELION fan, you’re going to want to reach out to a proxy service to help you obtain this statue. The statue will be shipping sometime between April and June 2022.
