Evangelion Returns Once Again with New Bandai Figure

The cult classic anime Neon Genesis Evangelion might have ended back in 1196 but that's not stopping collectibles. We recently saw that Evangelion is getting a couple of Funko Pop vinyl figures. Now it looks like Bandai is releasing a special metal build of the famed EVA-01 character. The best part of this figure is that they have teamed up with the designer of Evangelion, Ikuto Yamashita, to give us a figure designed like no other. This figure is packed with accessories, detail, and very poseable and would be a perfect addition to any fans collection.

The EVA-01 Neon Genesis Evangelion Metal Build Figure from Bandai is priced at $280. This figure is set to release between February and April 2020, pre-orders are already live and located here. Take advantage of Sideshow and their payment plans if need be. This figure is beautifully crafted and designed which is perfect for this figure and should be owned by any Evangelion fan.

The designer of Evangelion, Ikuto Yamashita, has joined forces with Bandai to create this METAL BUILD edition of the famed character, capturing its steel-and-muscle appearance as no other figure has before. The body features diecast metal parts and chrome plating for a luxurious weight and finish. Re-designed from the ground up, this incredibly posable portrayal of the EVA-01 is packed with visual detail and play value.
