A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Neon Genesis Evangelion continues to be one of the most enduring anime franchises in history, with some of the most beloved characters of all time… not least of which are the incredible giant robots known as Evas. Kotobukiya is proud to present the next new plastic model kit based on the third completed unit, Evangelion Production Model – 02 β! Intricately sculpted and detailed to reflect Asuka Langley Soryu’s iconic robot, this new kit captures the unit’s iconic lanky body, long limbs, armored torso with shoulder extensions, and of course its unique four-eyed head. Naturally, the kit’s parts (360 in all) are pre-colored in the accurate red, black, white, and yellow color scheme, so no painting is required. You can even recreate your favorite scenes from the series with the Production Model Unit 02’s multiple points of articulation and tons interchangeable parts including six pairs of hands, several weapon systems, and more! Sculpted by Yuichi Kuwamura, Unit 02 stands 7 ½ inches tall. Display it by itself, alongside your Asuka Ani*Statue, or with the previously released Unit 02 plastic model kit from Kotobukiya!
