Tamashii Nations 2012: S.H. MonsterArts

I think it's great the the MonsterArts line is expanding into other properties. Lets look and see what was on display in Japan.


The Vajra from Macross Frontier gets a toy (finally!)



Also, another often overlooked kaiju - Biollante! This cool display had actual smoke pumping out beneath it.






Angels are joining the MonsterArts line. Some of these look great. Always love Shamshel.

'Rebuild' Angel dioramas

I only looked at this article because it was mentioned in Episode 50 of CDX: The Show...

HOLY SH*T they made scaled versions of ALL of the Rebuild of Evangelion Angels to date!? They have never done that before, not even as static displays! (And chibi keychains do not count.) Usually the 3rd and 14th Angels got the most attention (just because it was actually possible to make models out of them, and they are also signature characters from the series/movies), but it seems the arrival of "Evangelion: 3.0- You Can (Not) Redo" in November 2013 is spurning toy companies to gear up once more for the good stuff in anticipation of the film's arrival.

And appropriately, they look HUGE!

Three of the 10 [seen so far] from Rebuild are not shown here- the 2nd (Lilith), 4th (aka 3rd Angel Sachiel) and 8th (10th Angel Sahaquiel) Angels- but I'm absolutely stunned that they took a whack at the new 3rd (fan-named 'Tunniel') and 7th (fan-named 'Clockiel') Angels.

(One little detail I just noticed too: the tiny red Core of the 6th Angel can be seen inside the transparent-blue diorama above. Sick!)

But what will you have to

But what will you have to fight them with? There are no SHFiguarts Evangelions... maybe the Robot Spirits or *shudders* Revoltech releases to keep the scales close? The Soul SPEC evas are awesome but probably too big... and I have no clue how big the SOC evas are.

Well first of all, the scale

Well first of all, the scale of these dioramas is already whack, so putting a properly-scaled EVA next to then doesn't concern me as much as simply having a properly-proportioned Angel sitting on my shelf. The only Rebuild Angels you cannot really put in proper scale with any EVA figure would be Angels 6-8 (and whatever the 1st Angel will be re-imagined as) because of their massive sizes.

Angels for the most part are larger than an EVA, and because of their deeply-weird shapes it makes them really difficult to build in the real world as models without extra external non-canon supports.

Really the only diorama here I have any major picks about is the 6th, because that cityscape just doesn't look like it belongs to Tokyo-3.
No halos either, shrug.

The Biollante diorama looks

The Biollante diorama looks awesome.

I wonder what's setting the actual smoke to come out.
