Greetings MFC
Today I am proud to share with you all my new custom display case for my Evangelion REAL ACTION HEROS. For those who may have been following me, last time I posted an article about packing up all my figures ready for the big move into my new house. Unfortunately there was a few problems with obtaining the land and approval from the council, so now the house wont be ready for another year or so..
So because of this, I thought it was time to unpack the figures again, but there was some figures I still couldn’t un-box due to space = and those were my EVA RAH’s.

My Evangelion RAH’s are the pride of my collection, my absolute favorite gems from my collection. But due to their insane size (and obtaining a lot of new figures while I was renting) I just didn’t have the room to display them. But, after a series of fortunate events I found an ad online for someone selling a large custom built display case. Originally the case was constructed to hold a few UCS lego sets, but now the seller had sold the sets and was left with a large case.

Thankfully the seller was kind enough to drive to my place to deliver the case, cause I honestly did not have any vehicle large enough to transport it. When It arrived I was really surprised by its size, but in a good way because this was the PERFECT size for my RAH – a dream was slowly coming true. Unfortunately the case was in pretty poor condition, so it took a lot of work to spiff it up the way I wanted. So after two days – here are the results.

Once it arrived I had to clean up the glass as it was pretty dirty. I then went to my local printing facility and printed up a floor and a backing for the case. I had this vision of the beautiful star sky that is featured on the promo artwork for Evangelion 3.0 as the backdrop for the case; I felt it was a nice backing that didn’t take away the attention from the figures themselves. I also added a floor colour as it was originally a cream colour. For this I chose the signature “blue “gradient that represents 3.0. I chose this to not only match with the sky, but because I felt none of the other colours ( red, orange and white ) would work well as it would contrast heavily with the colours of the EVA’s.

The reason for the backing was that the case actually has 3 large poles along the front of the case which are supposed to be used as shelves. The seller no longer had the shelves and I didn’t really want them. So instead I put a backing along the front to block out the poles, then flipped It around the other way so the figures are facing out the back.
And off course, I put it some IKEA LED lights along the front, I feel this is what brings it all together. The cords just run along the top the case and come out the back with the sliding doors are. I would’ve taken a lot more photos but my camera had a hard time focusing with the lights =T

So not only was getting a case this large a dream come true, but I was finally able to OPEN some of my RAH’s for the first time – Unit 08

And Unit 02 GAMMA

When I get the time ill take some solo shots of 08 and GAMMA since there are not many pictures of them around at the moment (might do some reviews if people are interested also? ). But one of the biggest highlights for me was being able to pose Unit 01 AWAKENING “properly “for the first time. Originally I had him in my detolf, but due to his large size and halo, I wasn’t able to display him standing and had to have him crouch down. But with all this new room, I was able to pose him in his “awakening “pose and be the center piece of my display.

Now I just need to get Unit 00, Mark 09 ( Pre-ordered ) and EVA 13 and things will start looking pretty great! Ill be sure to take more photos once I get a few more. Thank you all for reading, if you have any questions about the case or the figures I am more then happy to help out !

Thank you for your time, Enjoy!

Dont worry, i totally understand the money situation >.< I was lucky to be financially stable at the time, but even figures such as these were a massive hit to my wallet. The best thing about these guys is the space between release dates, gives you enough time to save =] But without a doubt they are worth the price, RAH are the best quality figures that i own.
I really appreciate the feed back on the display, i was originally going to put a black floor in, i even board a whole bunch of black boards to use. But after putting the blue in there i feel in love with the feel straight away. I might try the black though to see how it looks.
Thanks for your suggestions and comments !


Ah, if you ever try out the black floor, I'd be really if you could take photos and maybe send me a PM if you do, since I really want to see how that would look!

One EVA RAH is basically 3 times of the money I have per month, so as long as I'm still in school (not that much longer hah, lucky me), they're unaffordable. After entering University though, I might be able to afford one. Sometime... in the future ... uh ... >.>

My problem is ;) they're too big for my shelves ;)
At the moment , they'll fit only if hunched (but I'm quite keen on the poses I've left them in)
I also pre-ordered CCP Zeruel ( special edition with lighted eyes). Sachiel is not quite as big as the Evas, but I think he looks ok ;)

I love the design of Eva 02 gamma , and Eva 13 , but one can only have so many , right ?
Plus I've got nowhere else to store the boxes anymore !

Please update us when your diorama is ready ;D

youji6 years ago#2157570This looks pretty neat! (And gosh, the Awakening EVA-01 looks awesome, if only RAHs wouldn't be so expensive. And I wasn't a student with no money. orz)
I really like the background you chose for the display, although I think, black would've been more fitting for the ground then. But still, it looks good :)

WindsorSeven6 years ago#2156914It looks incredible! I like the way you have all the units posed, but where will you squeeze in the new ones?

Thanks you! I take alot of time and consideration into my posing. Although it was incredibly hard to pose unit 08 and Gamma for the first time. I was surprized how different the leg and knee structure has changed from the 2.0 to the 3.0 EVA's. Getting them to kneel down like that wasn't easy, but with a bit of careful precision i got there ^__^
As to where the other EVA's will go,i plan on putting unit 00 crouched down at the back of 01 and 02, while Mark 09 will be standing behind 08 and Gamma. But when Unit 13 comes out ( if ever when ever ) ill have to shift things around a bit as i want him to be in the middle.

Thanks again for your comments !

About this blog

 
Hello!
My name is Ry and i have been collecting for roughly 15 years. In this blog i try to review figures, Artbooks, merchandise, DVD's + CD's - Anything Anime or Video game related!

Animation is my biggest passion, it inspires me and has shaped who i am today. Art is a form in which you can communicate a feeling, emotion, a thought or concept through visuals, movement and music like no other. Being able to connect with those idea's is something i find truly special and drives my motivation in collecting!

Hope you enjoy my Blog
- Ry
