A very cool looking cover pose, thanks to the four arms and two Lances of Longinus.

When you crack open the box, the colors will pop right out at you.

The manual keeps up the same style as the rest of the line.

The build itself seems like it will be fine.  There’s lot of option parts to build as well.

Some final thoughts. I’ve built a number of kits from the Evangelion line before, and so far have been quite happy with the overall quality, especially concerning the mobility. Looks like it should be the same with this kit. But of course the most exciting thing is going to be the four arms and loads of additional parts!  Stick around for part 2, and let’s find out how it looks!
