Godzilla vs. Evangelion Figure from X-Plus and Premium Bandai in 2017
A SCIFI JAPAN EXCLUSIVE
The Japanese toy company X-Plus Co., Ltd. has provided SciFi Japan with information and high-res photos of their first Godzilla vs. Evangelion Toho 30cm Series figure.
The new film SHIN GODZILLA (シン・ゴジラ, Shin Gojira) is co-directed by Hideaki Anno, creator of NEON GENESIS EVANGELION (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン, Shin Seiki Evangerion), and his EVANGELION collaborator, Shinji Higuchi. To further promote the connection between the two popular franchises, Toho Co. Ltd. and Anno’s Khara Inc. are also collaborating on the “Godzilla vs. Evangelion” merchandising and marketing campaign featuring products from multiple licensees. X-Plus and Bandai are partnering on “Godzilla vs. Evangelion” figures, including this Toho 30cm Series fusion of Godzilla and the Eva Unit-01 piloted by EVANGELION’s lead character, Shinji Hikari.
The 1989 movie GODZILLA VS BIOLLANTE (ゴジラ VS ビオランテ, Gojira Tai Biorante) introduced the concept that Godzilla’s cells could be spliced into other organisms to create new forms of life, though the monster’s nature would likely overwhelm the host. This idea is presented in the X-Plus/Bandai figure which, while maintaining the basic form and purple and green color scheme of Unit-01, boasts the classic Godzilla skin texture, dorsal fins and long tail… signs that the living machine is being overtaken by G cells.
