MAFEX Evangelion Unit-01 Unboxing

MAFEX Evangelion Unit-01 – Available from HobbyLink Japan

By Cacophanus from Mecha Damashii

For those that have been following the Rebuild of Evangelion movies and wanted decent figures of the various Evas, then Medicom has a solid range of MAFEX toys that cover this quite nicely. Starting with the iconic Eva-01, these MAFEX figures are worth a look, if a little fragile.

The Rebuild of Evangelion movies are effectively a reboot and retelling of the story from the original Neon Genesis Evangelion TV series and follow-on movies.

That means events happen differently and involve some new characters as well. The classic design of Eva-01 has also had a makeover, which is mostly down to a recoloring more than anything else.

Obviously, there have been innumerable releases of the new movie Eva-01 in model kit and toy form. However, what makes the MAFEX range a bit different is how they don’t try to stylize this design too much.

This particular version of Eva-01 was also featured in Super Robot Wars V, which has recently been given a release on the Switch and on PC (via Steam).

Anyway, the result is a solid figure that brings Eva-01 to life in a faithful way, but it is a little on the fragile side.

Keep an eye out for the review, as that will be up soon.

  1. Unpopular opinion.
    NGE was always style over substance. But this certainly captures the style.
