With Neon Genesis Evangelion arriving on Netflix June 21st, 2019 (along with two of the movies), fans of the classic 90s anime about mental health and teenage angst cleverly disguised as a mecha show have much reason to celebrate! Including drooling at immaculate toy statues that really, most of us will never be able to afford.

Prime 1 Studios have created an Evangelion Unit-00, an Evangelion Unit-01 (my favorite), and an Evangelion Unit 02 (that awesome red one). All three stand about 24″, feature accessories, weapons, and alternate hands. Price, preorder links, and images are below.

Evangelion Unit-00: MSRP $1,599 (Shipping June-July 2019)

Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present Evangelion Proto Type-00′. 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. Evangelion Prototype-00` is the first functional Evangelion unit created, serving as the prototype for the rest of the Eva series. It is piloted by the First Child, Rei Ayanami. The head design is similar to that of the previous failed attempts, but with only one eye. There are two domes on the top of the head, one white and one transparent green; their function is never revealed.

 

Evangelion Unit-01: MSRP $1,199.99 (Shipping July-August 2019)

Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present EVA Test Type-01.
