Wow those weapons for the EVAs for the upcoming "Rebuild of Evangelion" film look sweet-! Looks like they went for more stylized versions of the High-powered Positron Rifle and the improvised shield (originally the underbelly of a space shuttle orbiter) which both debuted in Ep.6 of the series to combat the awesome power of the 5th Angel rather than the function-before-form practical style of the originals. Are those for the Revoltech series, or the LM-HGs?
Nice--! The EVAs get brand new chainguns! Ass-kickin' weapons, those. ;) I also wonder if the two katana-styled Magoroku-Exterminate Swords (aka, "Progressive Sword(s)") will finally make an appearance in an official anime rather than just being an accessory for models and games all the time, like they are here...?
Okay- so far, the repaint of Unit-00 has included much more white than the original did. But now they're adding more black to that!? Make up your minds! Sheesh!
Since it's looking more-and-more likely that the first film will be a retelling of Ep.5-6, I wonder if the 5th Angel is getting a makeover as well...? Anyone here see the unrelated concept artwork of the [5th] Angel that was made by Weta Workshop ("The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "King Kong" remake, "The Chronicles of Narnia" series) for the upcoming-but-long-delayed "Evangelion" live-action movie? I wonder if it'll be something like that for "Rebuild..."

I'm so thrilled that they're

I'm so thrilled that they're doing new Wingman figures. I love that armor design.

Bukyo no Hoshi

Josh, you may be right about the third figure being Jet Li--it's really tough to tell from that pic...let alone from the fact that the figures aren't exactly all that super-accurate to begin with...!
But I'm gonna throw down a guess for Liu Chia Hui, a.k.a., Gordon Liu. Now THAT dude's a kung-fu legend!! Plus, he's often seen with a shaven head, unlike Jet Li.
