There is no way I could review figma Mari and not review the figma renditions of possibly the two most famous Anime heroines of all time.
It has been years in the making… but finally, for the 200th episode, I’m reviewing the Yahoo! Japan Store Limited Soul of Chogokin SPEC Evangelion Unit 01 ‘Synchro Rate of 400%’ Figure.
It’s been awhile, but I’m back with another Figma figure review, this time covering Good Smile Company and Max Factory’s first foray into the Evangelion franchise with Figma Mari.
Rounding up the trio of Robot Damashii Evangelion figures is Rei’s Eva Unit 00. It would have been a perfect figure release if it were not for one small flaw that has nothing to do with the actual figure itself.
Shinji’s iconic purple beast, the Evangelion Unit 01 based off the new design from the new movie, Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance, finally makes its appearance in the Robot Damashii line.
Asuka’s signature Evangelion Unit 02 from the new movie, Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance, makes its appearance in Bandai’s Robot Damashii line, with all the quality you’d come to expect from a Robot Damashii figure.
What more can I say? The SOC SPECs by Bandai are definitely THE figures of the Evangelion units. Forget Revoltech, forget the original Soul of Chogokin figures, you need to own this if you consider yourself a fan of Evangelion.
Here’s my first attempt at a written review. For this first review, we’ll be taking a look at the Soul of Chogokin SPEC EVA – 01 (renewal ver.) figure from the ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’ series.
