Good news for fans of Evangelion who are looking to create their very own Evangelion Hall of Fame. ThreeZero has officially revealed the Evangelion: New Theatrical Edition ROBO-DOU Evangelion Production Model-03 figure. TBH, I find it odd to have Unit-03 in the lineup instead of Mari’s Unit-08 which had more role to play in the Rebuild series, specifically in the concluding installment, Evangelion 3.0+1.0.
Anywho, the new ThreeZero Evangelion Unit-03 figure joins the existing line that includes Test Type-01, Test Type-01 Night Combat Color, Production Unit-02, and Proto Type-00. Like the rest of the lineup, the Evangelion: New Theatrical Edition ROBO-DOU Evangelion Production Model-03 is a non-scale articulated figure that stands about 25 cm (9.8 inches) tall and boasts 48 points of articulation.
It comes with a pair of infected arms that replaces the shoulder restraint parts and a pair of extended arms (interchangeable with standard arms) to let you recreate the four-armed Angel-infected Unit-03 as seen in the Rebuild series.
The infected status can be further emphasized with an Entry Plug infection effect piece, which is supplied along with 3 interchangeable regular Entry Plugs, namely a short Entry Plug (for inserted mode), a long Entry Plug (for extracted mode), and a very sad, destroyed Entry Plug.
Also included are an umbilical cable with socket, 6 pairs of interchangeable hands (which include a pair of infected action hands), and an action stand. Since this figure is under the Evangelion: New Theatrical Edition, it would make it the Unit-03 piloted by Asuka Shikinami Langley, not Toji Suzuhara in the TV series continuity.
If you are down in picking up one, the Evangelion: New Theatrical Edition ROBO-DOU Evangelion Production Model-03 is available for pre-order from threezerohk.com for US$149.
The planned shipment is sometime in Q1 2023.
