[note: Eva 3.0 spoilers abound below]
So, what was your favorite part of Evangelion 3.0? When Asuka & Misato hated Shinji for no reason that was never explained? The magical, also never explained immortality of the kids? Mari being smug? The fact that the Angels are like… gone for no reason and now there are even stupider monsters? No. I bet it was the romance. Between Shinji and Kaworu, I mean. The piano scene, have you ever seen anything so tender?
So of course, a company needed to immortalize their love… and Vertex is here to do the job! I’m kind of speechless. It’s perfect.

I have always wondered why there aren’t Evangelion Nendoroids. In terms of merchandise & figures Eva is arguably the most all-time popular anime–we have tons of scaled figures, figmas, bigger action figures, trading figures, even Dollfie Dreams, but no damn Nendoroids! Why Good Smile, whyyy. Just give us mini Asuka and Mari. Or in the case of these two amazing customs, Shinji and Kaworu!
That’s right, the amazing duo has been made into Nendoroid form. These are absolutely spot on, and you can tell that the customizer is a huge Evangelion fan! The gallery we have for you today is only a small peek into what they have done with these two, but it’s utterly amazing. There’s a lot of cosplay (and, of course, crossplay). Have you always wanted to see Shinji & Kaworu in Madoka Magica gear? Dressed as Soniko? Popping out of Teddie’s body? Well we’ve got all that and a whole lot more–check them out after the jump!

Good Smile Company recently conducted a poll where you could request specific characters in specific figure-forms (as long as what you were requesting was a scaled figure, Nendoroid, or figma). This was for their 10-year anniversary, and it was combined with a re-release poll. They’ve announced the results of the product request poll, and while none of these figures are guaranteed to be produced it’s interesting to see what people wanted the most! Not surprisingly there was a large Vocaaloid showing, and Shin Megami Tensei titles preformed very well. Hit the jump to check out what we might be getting!

Evangelion is a powerhouse when it comes to merchandise, and they’ve gotten pretty much every kind of figure imaginable: scaled, NSFW, garage kits, trading figures, prizes, figmas, even dolls. However, they’ve been woefully neglected when it comes to Good Smile Company’s favorite product: the Nendoroid! Fans have tried their hands at customs several times already, but almost always with the main two girls. Rei even got a Nendoroid garage kit! However, Evangelion does have a main character that everyone seems to forget about: the namby-pamby pilot Shinji Ikari.
Someone decided to change that and has made a painfully cute version of him, complete with cooking instruments to impress the ladies. I would like an alternate “primordial goo” body if this ever gets released! As enjoyable as it is to make fun of him (or maybe precisely because of that) I’m pretty sure I’d buy at least one if GSC ever decided to produce him. Next up, let’s see a custom Gendo!
