Beautiful

Beautiful, astounding, scientifically fascinating. Simply alien to the human's eye of collective convention.

This transformer's asthethic design is not only honorable of it's ancient foundation, it is essentially a work of art.

$1,100 is a commendable reward.

Ya know what? I would get

Ya know what? I would get that. I'm serious! Hell, I'll even cover it for CDX!

Fluid/graceful armor and movement in a mecha doesn't happen very often, and I feel it's usually reserved for monsters that are heavenly or sky-based (read: Angels). I think that this would be an interesting shelf piece and conversation starter.
Would we wanna review this on aCDX, perhaps...?

Now, if it wasn't so dammed expensive...

Oh hey there EVA

Looks like someone was really, really upset that his fan-art Evangelion submission didn't get used in "Rebirth". Shades of the Akira-prise?

Are you being funny? 'Cause

Are you being funny? 'Cause I know very little about behind-the-scenes of Eva.

The Akira-prise? Maybe, but this is a little too artsy to work in Evangelion. Maybe an imitator angelic creature from another series that something that could fit straight into the Eva-verse.

IDK, I just get a good vibe off of it. ^_^

They need to tell people

They need to tell people that you are spending 1100 on this today, but 30 years later you would be able to auction off for 1 million dollars!!!

Now that's marketing. Go and buy your's now.
