Nagisa Kaworu Cassius no Yari Sega PM FigureNagisa Kaworu Cassius no Yari Sega PM Figure

LemonMIntCatLemonMIntCat2 months agoReview
Hello! Time for my second review, I will be reviewing ITEM #740265, the Nagisa Kaworu Spear of Cassius premium figure from the manufacturer Sega! For a little background this is a figure of Kaworu from Neon Genesis Evangelion and his plug suit appearance from the third film in the Rebuild series, Evangelion 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo,ENTRY #148. I got this item to match Asuka Lance of Longinus, ITEM #672703, which I have a previous review of, BLOG #43387. I purchased this figure from Mandarake, where he should still be available if you are interested afterwards. This review will feature lots of pictures, so please hang tight!

Starting out with the box, it is relatively small and features a nice dark blue and purple color gradient. You can see the figure through the front plastic window. The sides feature the films logo, one side has a close-up shot of the figure, the other a nice image of the moon, something that Kaworu is often associated with.

The top of the box has the NERV logo and the back contains instructions for placing the spear into his hand, which I will discuss later. Taking him out the blister packaging we see the figure comes in 5 parts. Kaworu, base, and 3 separate pieces to make up the spear.

Kaworu fits with two pegs on one foot, and one peg on the other. Interesting thing of note, his limbs can move slightly so fitting his foot is easy enough to do. His base like Asuka’s is a very large ellipsoid shape, but his has the newer NERV logo from Rebuild 3.0.

The spear can be put together but I found some difficulty with the spiraling portion, the fit is somewhat loose and doesn’t sit exactly straight, but the spear’s sharp point fits on easily and securely. Then we come to my first real problem with this figure. Fitting the spear into Kaworu’s hands is difficult, the lower part has a peg which fits into a hole in his hand, while the top part rests in his other hand. It takes quite a bit of maneuvering to get the peg into his hand, which can bend slightly to make it easier. But I still found that the spear would fall out especially if I moved the figure around a lot. You can also see that the Spear of Cassius is about the same length as Asuka’s Lance of Longinus, however Cassius has some nicer glossy paint finish, especially on the gem.

Anyhow after all that, Kaworu is now complete.

Firstly, let’s look at Kaworu expression! This was the first part of the figure that I really wanted to see ever since ordering. Kaworu is looking up towards us, with a very gentle and confident smile which is so fitting of the character. His face turned out very well in my opinion, very gentle red eyes. His hair I think lacks a little shading but the sculpt conveys the fluffiness well enough!

Next to address his plug suit outfit, which is the one he wears when piloting the EVA Unit 13. His overall suit is the dark bluish purple with black striping portions. His chest has the 13 unit number, an inlayed red gem. His sides have silver raised details, his shoulders have green stripes, and his collar just has a bit of red, all which tie in nicely with the spear. His hands have the red buttons to adjust the suit. His back features the triangular shaped piece which has a capital Greek symbol Alpha (Shinji having the lower case alpha on his plug suit). Like Asuka, Kaworu is packed with lots of nice visually striking details, however I noticed he has some more paint bleed/transfers and a few scratched parts.

Lastly a picture of Kaworu with Asuka! Overall, I think this figure is nice for the price, with lots of details in the plug suit but what sells this figure to me is the accuracy of the gentle and coy expression. However, it is not without its faults, there is some paint defects, the hair could use more shading, the spear is a little hard to place and lastly the base is space consuming. I tried initially to place both Kaworu and Asuka on one shelf but it seems too crowded( shown in spoiler). However, I ended up moving him down one shelf, here he is now!

I think my next post maybe a haul of fan artist items from Evangelion and some others, which I will include a bit about the art shown behind Kaworu! Please feel free to comment with some feedback on the review or anything you would like. Thanks for sticking with me and have a wonderful day or evening! :)

I have a similar problem with Rei and her scythe from this sega figure ITEM #199818 Her scythe keeps falling off and is annoying. Sega needs to fix this problem XD

Yes, I heard this was a problem for that Rei, I was thinking of getting her so she matches the other two but with the size of the bases they take up too much space! Also about holding the weapons, Asuka doesn’t seem to have any problems with longinus, I have had her on display for about a month and it hasnt fallen yet. We will have to see about karl, so long as he isnt moved a lot I think it will be okay because his top hand also supports it.
