EVA-00 Rei Ayanami Entry Plug

I hope to god these things aren't removable from their bases.

Anyway, in Evangelion - the Eva pilots get in a cylinder, called a plug, that is then inserted behind the head. I'm actually surprised we haven't seen toys of these before. These two are from Skynet, looks like they are lit, and covers are retractable. Unknown size. Due 12/08 for 8,800 yen.

"I hope to god these things

"I hope to god these things aren't removable from their bases."

Mwwaahaaahhahhahaha!! CLASSIC!!

By the way, thanks for the heads up on the spelling error, grendizer1975. I'm sure those looking to buy this...item...aren't terribly concerned with accurate spelling! :P

$80+ seems pretty

$80+ seems pretty expensive... they oughta do a version with the LCL simulated... it'd be like those old jelly fish-tank toys you could put the diver figures and stuff in :D

I'm waiting for them to make

I'm waiting for them to make a life-sized entry plug toy. Or real Evangelions.

Um... life-size toy?

Um... life-size toy? Howsabout we figure out how big these damned things really are first; then start makin' life-size replicas of stuff, okay?

I think what would be absolutely awesome is if they could create another in-arcade TESLA virtual-reality game, where you actually sit inside an Entry Plug, and duke it out with a favored Angel of your choice. Or have nation-wide matches between players in real-time, or go head-to-head against those same players in EVA-vs-EVA battles?
Now THAT I would be willing to sink $10-per-session to play*!

...all of this, of course, without the mess of breathing LCL, or having your brains scrambled because someone made a miscalculation in their one-to-the-one-millionth-decimal-place when they spilled coffee on themselves three years earlier.

Relax, I was just making one

Relax, I was just making one of my trademark horrible jokes, ha.

And yes that arcade game would be awesome. I haven't been to the arcade in ages, but I do love a good simulation game, like Arctic Thunder. It's a snowmobile-racing game, and they have a huge fan that blows in your face and everything.

So anyway, while we're here, do you by any chance plan on purchasing one of these things?

I don't plan to get one.

I don't plan to get one. I'm not big on dioramas or static displays, remember? (That's one of my trademarks, see?)
Besides, it looks like they didn't recreate the interior framework that surrounds the camera screens inside there, instead opting to use LED lights for cool effect.

There is one advantage to this, though- since we'll have scale versions of the Children in these things, we may begin to deduce how big the EVAs are! (I still say an Entry Plug is 9'/3m in diameter...) Indeed, perhaps these Entry Plugs are scaled to humans the way they would be proportionately to an EVA...?

. . .

There was a BattleTech VR game I played almost a decade ago in the University [of Washington] Village in a Wizards of the Coast arcade. I only got to play the TESLA game once, but it was awesomeness! The cockpit didn't move, but you were fully enclosed in it with no less than four independent video screens, 10-button 3-axis joysticks, push-button display panels(!), and four foot pedals. I repeat: it was awesomeness for a giant robot fan like me!

...and three weeks later, the arcade closed down. (*sniff*)

"I hope to god these things aren't removable from their bases."

I didn't even think of it until you said that.

I've seen pictures online

I've seen pictures online of a 6'-tall Unit-01 that is used mostly for static store display. It cost something like $1000-or-somethin'.
