Full Size Evangelion Unit Planned


Not to be outdone by other giant robot franchises with their own giant robot statues, Neon Genesis Evangelion is set to receive a full size Evangelion statue.

The unit will apparently be in a “caged” state with most of the body hidden from view (that is to say, it is a giant bust), conveniently freeing the organisers from the burden of constructing a 80m high mech.

A full size cockpit is also said to be included in construction (admission extra).

The unit is due to be unveiled in Yamanashi prefecture in late July.

Considering the great success of the giant Gundam, organisers have obviously cottoned on to the tourism potential of such statues – might a Knightmare Frame be next?
