Been having the urge to do a model kit for some time now. Recently seen My Kaiju Godzilla post some stuff about this figure and I just had to get it. This is a Godzilla version of the Kotobukiya Awaken Evangelion Unit-01 model. This is apart of the Godzilla vs. Evangelion series and is the first of two models they are putting out (with the next being in a MechaGodzilla color scheme).
So for the most part, I love this model set! The details are really cool and I love the overall Burning / Shin Godzilla appearance. I also appreciate that the figure doesn’t need that much added detailing outside of the package. The only issues I have with it overall is the water decals really gave me a fit and love to remove themselves off of the figure very easily. Also that the figure doesn’t come with enough parts to be able to swap between different versions of the figure.
I will say when all is said and done, I would recommend this set to people that are into models and want a cool version of EVA Unit-01. It helps too that he looks stunning next to other Godzilla figures like the SH MonsterArts figures in the photos. Now the real question is if I wanna continue with this line or move back to standard action figures for EVA. We will see.
