As if Evangelion on its own isn’t enough to give you nightmares and mess with your id…
Though the majority of us are too young to have ever experienced Godzilla at an age or in an age when it would have been appropriately terrifying, Evangelion has been messing with our minds for over 20 years now. Someone, though, has decided we don’t have enough monsters lurking in the darkest corners of our mind.
Last month, in conjunction with the release of Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno’s Shin Godzilla, Premium Bandai began taking pre-orders for the Evangelion Test Unit “G” Awakening Form. Apparently, after suffering heavy damage in a battle, the “G” cells inside Eva Unit-01 mutated and turned the unit into a half-Eva, half-Godzilla nightmare.

Eva Unit-01 wasn’t the only one to be ravaged by these mysterious “G” cells. The following is what happened when some ‘G’ cells were put in the Eva Unit-02 while it was in beast mode.

It’s a bit scary to think of other potential Godzilla x Evangelion mashups, such as Lilith and Godzilla.
The good news about all of this is that these are only figurines. And they are pretty amazing figurines at that! Standing 30 centimeters (11.8 inches) tall and 38 centimeters (14.96 inches) in length, this thing is massive and it has a price tag to match. Eva Unit-02 Beast “G” mode will cost you 32,400 yen (about US$314.09) and a couple of sleepless nights, but for a true Eva fan, that’s nothing. Pre-orders can be placed via the Premium Bandai store or the official Eva Store and delivery is anticipated to be sometime in February 2017.
