    Moro (2 years ago) #2945216His pose does match the illustration, though. I think because he's in the center his is supposed to be more static as a sort of pivot point for the other characters. But it's true that he's just less impressive than the other characters in the set. I'm fine with mine, anyway.
    I actually experimented with some fishing line (temporary holds with masking tape) but it was actually still pretty conspicuous, because it would have required multiple pieces of line to keep the figures perfectly vertical and in the right place. I'd most likely have to affix the fishing line both from above and below the figures. And keeping that in place would also require drilling into the case, which I really don't want to do.



    Yeah, you were pretty lucky with your copy as I've seen ones with really bad faces. xD To me Asuka (in a good way) and Shinji (in a bad way) stand out in this set. :)

    Ah yes, driling into the case was also what I meant. Make small holes and tie the fishing wire/transparant thread inbetween there. I guess the best points would be to have 2 strings each figure from their shoulders to underneath their armpits. But that makes a lot of wires/threads, which probably looks bleh op close, but good form a distance.

    Maakie (2 years ago) #2945210Asuka is defenitely the prettiest of them all! <3 I like how they made the full set, but I'm going to be honest here and say that I think Shinji is quite meh compared to the rest. Especially his posing is so static. The others are also eyes closed unconscious, but all have some sort of movement in legs and/or arms while Shinji looks just as plank from the front (from the side he looks a lot better). But from what I read elsewhere too, he seems to be the worst from the set, so here I think you have to be glad you didn't get one with a crooked face. xD
    I really like the costum display you made and I also thought of what one of the users below me said about changing the colors of the bases. Orrrrrr maybe you could look into letting them hang from your display with transparant wire and just ditch the bases? I don't think they are really heavy considering their size?

    toryyy (2 years ago) #2942945I'll be expecting this!
    I would like to get this whole set eventually, I think they look darling even if the quality isn't the best. We most likely won't get any more Eva figures with this concept.
    Not a fan of Mari, though. Will still get her.
    Heh, I give you new expectations every time I talk to you.
    They really are worth it IMO, flaws and all. And it's true we aren't likely to get any others with the same concept.

    Moro (2 years ago) #2940459I actually considered fabricating individual tubes as well, but decided a whole tank would look more cohesive. Still, I can think of a way to make such a picture... you're giving me ideas! You're the worst Eva enabler :O

    tomoko (2 years ago) #2942193Wow thank you so much for reviewing them! They're such beautiful figures, I wish I bought them. They look like they're all so peaceful and floating in LCL.. Great review once again : ) You're welcome, I'm glad people are liking it! I think this set is a bit under-appreciated honestly. With a bit of attention, they really shine and stand out despite being so small. Thanks~

    Drew (2 years ago) #2942119Been wondering how you intended to display these and the thought of referencing LCL tubes hadn't occurred to me, well done! Hopefully get round to doing something with mine someday. Thanks! Ah, I'm glad to see that you also bought the full set :D I've got some kind of obsession with LCL, it's a sickness o wo; If you do make a special display for yours you should definitely take some pictures.

    Celestrial (2 years ago) #2941558Thanks so much for doing this review Moro ^__^ I have been debating for so long if i should pick these ones up or not...i am still not sure haha. I think the main thing that bugs me is the size, i love the original artwork so much and they do look fantastic, but the size and those white stands ( why they are not clear is beyond me ) still bug me. The display you made for them look AMAZING though, if i could replicate something like that i might be more compelled to get them. Or even with a blue background that represents 3.0 ( much like i did with my EVA RAH case ) might look super awesome.
    Thanks again for the in depth review !!
    They really are lovely, despite being so small and having the opaque stands. I agree the stands definitely should have been clear. But I don't find them bothersome. Maybe it's just that love is blind |D
    Ooh, a Q blue display would look good too. Your RAH display looks fantastic so I'm sure you could do something similarly nice with this set. Also, you could probably paint the stands the same blue and have it work. I didn't paint the stands orange on mind because it made them stand out even more, but it's different with cool colors.
