RG Evangelion Unit 01 DX Transporter Set

Bandai brings one of the most beloved anime franchises to its highly-detailed RG line with the brand-new RG Evangelion Unit 01! This is the first in what what hope becomes a long line of stellar RG kits.

This kit comes in two versions: the RG Unit 01 and the RG Unit 01 DX Transport Platform Set. The former is a little more budget-friendly, while the latter is a must-have for “Neon Genesis Evangelion” fans, as it includes parts to build the platform which launches the EVA units into battle.

To be clear: the Unit 01 runners from both kits are the same, so you’re only missing out on the platform portion of the kit if you decide to grab the standard version instead of the DX. Here, we’re looking at the DX version, though!

The Box

Bandai gets right into showing off. You bet this kit has an inner frame! And thanks to that, we can see that the articulation is going to be good without sacrificing design. You can accomplish natural (err, as natural as an EVA can be) poses like in the anime.

Next we get a look at all the gimmicks, details, and parts — there’s a whole lot in this box!

But that’s not all! Even more features are shown off here, including the special A.T. Field effect part. This part is specifically molded with a hole in the middle so you can recreate the scene where Unit 01 pries it open.

The Runners

Photos with a light grey background are a little washed out — runners in these photos are more vibrant in color in person!

I saved the M runner for last. Bandai puts its multi-color injection technology to use for a handful of parts to mold them in different configurations of white, green, purple, and black all at once.

In general, if it's a detailed miniature that's too small to be useful for anything other than taking up space, she'll probably love it.

  1. Great Mecha design, shame the story is just pretentious. And full of really shameful Waifu fodder. And massively unnecessarily oversexualised designs. Like plug suits with straight up unnecessary boob windows.

    But sure, cool looking “Mecha” at least.
