Tips & Tricks

  • For better results, some details are needed to be applied with Gundam Markers or Mr. Color paints.
    • If using matte/flat-finish top coat, it is advisable not to spray on the clear/translucent parts - can be done by masking or spraying top coat while the said parts are separated.
  • Sticker decals (included) can be attached if the builder so chooses.
  • Topcoat (Mr. Hobby recommended) can be used to protect applied decals.
  • Alternate shoulder parts for the Unit 01 are included in the RG Evangelion Unit-00 (DX Positron Cannon Set) to recreate the 01's firing pose with the Positron Cannon in the source material.
  • Attaching the decals on the Entry Plug may cause it to fit tightly on the Unit-01, which may make it difficult to remove later on.
  • The builder has an option to use a single-colored antenna for the head, which can be made color-accurate using the provided stickers or by painting.

Notes & Trivia

  • This item is released to conclude the premiere of Evangelion: 3.0+1.0, which is set for a June 2020 release.
  • Due to the construction of the arms, specifically as to how the upper arm parts are separated, some builders speculate that an "Awakened" variant may be released in the future.
