Mechagodzilla is receiving Evangelion Unit 01 and Unit 02 paint jobs.

A pair of new figures will depict mechanical Godzilla weapon Mechagodzilla with paint jobs based on the colors of Evangelion’s EVA Unit 01 and Unit 02 mechas.

The figures are part of the Godzilla vs. Evangelion project, created to promote upcoming theatrical film Godzilla Resurgence. The two franchises share a common bond in Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno, who also serves as the new film’s co-director.

The figures depict the third generation Mechagodzilla, also known as Kiryu, seen in 2002’s Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla and 2003’s Godzilla: Tokyo SOS. Each measuring 32 centimeters tall, the highly detailed figures are painted with the trademark colors of the EVA Unit 01 and Unit 02 mechas.

The Unit 01 version features a predominantly purple color scheme, with details such as Mechagodzilla’s tail spikes and claws done with yellow and green accents. The Unit 02 version is modeled after Mechagodzilla’s appearance in Godzilla: Tokyo SOS, and reproduces Kiryu’s upgraded armor and weapons as seen in the film.

Each figure retails for 29,160 yen, tax included. Both are currently available for preorder, with the Unit 01 figure shipping in December and the Unit 02 figure due to be released in November.
