With the creator of the cult anime series Evangelion co-directing the upcoming Japanese Summer blockbuster, Shin Godzilla (aka Godzilla Resurgence), it is only a matter of time before we see the legendary kaiju go up against the giant bio-machine mecha, Evangelion. But before that ever happen (not that it will, btw), we stumbled upon rather unholy matrimony between these two creatures to result in the Godzilla x Evangelion Action Figure by X-Plus Toys, which was unveiled at the Wonder Festival 2016 on July 24 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba-city, Japan.
The two action figures revealed were based on Evangelion Unit-02’s “Beast Mode” and Toho’s Godzilla and aptly referred to as “Unit Beast G Mode” where G, presumably, denotes it as Godzilla. Little information was available, but from what we have gathered so far, the one on all fours is Eva G’s awakening form and the biped version would be a 30 cm (12-inch) tall Unit Beast ‘G’ Mode. Though we doubt there’s a relation between the two figures. In any case, both Gojira is drastically different from what a Godzilla would be. The EvaGoji figures sport slender limbs that resemble those of an Eva and the arms are definitely significantly longer than those of Godzilla’s.
If I read correctly, the information plaque next to the figures indicated that pre-orders will commence soon and they will be available through Bandai and Evangelion Store. Though pricing information is not being offered at this point.
