Bandai Hobby Evangelion - EVA-01 Test Type PG Model Kit
Without question, this is the ultimate EVA kit. The completed item stands 34.5cm high, bigger than nearly every other EVA kit that has been released. The basic structure is completely different from the existing LM-HG kits. An inner, posable skeleton of heavy-duty, semi-hard plastic is covered by soft, black, rubber covers that conceal the inner frame at the "gaps" in the EVA's armor at joints, on the abdomen and other places. This rubber suit is then covered in turn by the usual outer plastic panels. This structure, the designers say, give it a durability and poseability well beyond what you are used to seeing in Bandai HG and MG kits. Also, in addition to doing all the things that the LM-HG kits do, this kit's shoulder panels open (both sides) for weapon storage, and a plug-in power pack (takes 2 AAA batteries) lights up the EVA logos on its shoulders. Five sets of hands are included, as are the Pallet Gun, Progressive Knife, Two swords (long & short) with scabbards, the inner Eva head and a red metallic-plated "core."
