EVA-13 is now all put together. Let’s see how it looks!

A decent set of plastic nippers is all you need to put it together.

Front, side and back shots. It looks quite different from EVA-01.

The head and chest area definitely got an upgrade in the detail department.

The arms can bend pretty well.  But it’s the details in the head that may catch your eye!

The legs move well, too.

“Fangs, Ike!”  Well, you got the idea.

As we can see on the cover, when it’s got four arms, it looks a little like something out of a freak show.  But it will definitely pique your interest!

If you made it to the bottom of this picture, it’s even crazier with 2 Lances of Longinus.

Speaking of the size, it’s much taller than MG Gundam 2.0. Remember the scales are off as you’d expect with this at 1/400.

And it’s also a bit taller than EVA-01.

Some final thoughts. During the build, this kit felt more or less the same as my earlier ones, but had some interesting changes to some of the parts and structures. Once it’s done, I think it looks great! 13 certainly sets itself apart, and the head and chest details are very well woven together. But when it came to photo time, the first thing is it doesn’t stay together as well as the previous ones. And posing really is more of a challenge than you’d think as you may tell from the mostly just standing-up poses you see above. The biggest concern might be in regards to the quality of the plastic which comes across as a bit more brittle than before, so please be a bit careful with the new style joints. Overall though, the close proximity color apps, four crazy arms, and wildly long weapons will definitely make this guy catch anyone’s eyes on your shelf. 
Thanks for checking this out!
