Pattern blue! Get em!
With Evangelion 3.0 just around the corner, I prepared myself for an influx of new Evangelion merchandize. It hasn't really happened, but Tamashii Nation shows some promise. Amiami's Facebook page has a ton of photos from the event, and features the most elusive of Eva toys: the Angels!
The ones featured are from the Rebuild continuity, though not every Angel from the first two movies is present. They did have Ramiel, probably the most boring Angel figure ever. Then there's the mysterious Third Angel, which saw a little screen time in the beginning of Evangelion 2.0. My personal favorite is Zeruel in its badass unfurled form, no doubt ready to lay the smackdown on EVA-02. The display even included the weaksauce Seventh Angel (nicknamed Clockiel), which had a cool design but was the lamest of the Angels. Finally we round things out with Shamshel and probably the most iconic Angel, Sachiel. Check out that diorama of Sachiel and EVA-01!
If these Angels are really going to be a product line, and it's looking that way to me, then I'll be ecstatic to say the least. Finally my Robot Damashii Evangelions will have something to fight!
