    I've been waiting on this, and saw it on ebay this morning. Many are going for well over $100. Luckily I found one for much cheaper. In case you don't know what it is, its a limited version of the SPEC Chogokin Eva-01 called the 400% version, based on the episode where she goes berserk and eats Zeruel, and comes with a bandaged, unarmored head. It is an exclusive sold only through Yahoo Japan's online store. This isn't my auction, but it has better pics.

    Oh.... my.... god! :eek: 

    WANTZ! That thing is pure win! The looks of the berserker head captures the image of that episode perfectly, with the teeth and "real eyes".

    To bad it goes for so much :(  And that it's an exclusive.

    Wow. That thing is definently awesome. Shame it's out of my price range at the moment though... Oh well, maybe later.

    I found mine for about BIN $80. Good luck to everyone else who wants one, get them now while there are enough of them for the prices to be competitive.

    Might be wrong, but wasn't it released a while ago? I saw a few auctions of it before this. Unless it has a normal arm, then I'll just get the normal, which I might pass in favor of the new Movie version

    No, it was up for preorder since May, but was just released in the last few days in Japan. This one does not come with a normal arm, I believe. If you want that, you have to get the normal edition.

    Huh. I saw one that one episode of the show and it caught my attention pretty well. I thought it was damn neat. Cant figure out what time it comes on now. =[. I wish they selled some version of this guy in the states. That revoltech version of Eva 1 is pretty awesome though.

    Sorry dude, it wasn't released a few days in Japan. Its been out in my country, Singapore, for the past month or so. If I remembered correctly, I first saw it saw between the last week of August to the first week of September.

    The box looks pretty impressive in terms of design etc but I'm er, sort of done with SOCs - they're "money drainers"! :D

    Ok, define a few days? Last week of August to now is only a couple weeks? Sheesh.

    Well, last few days among the Asian collectors I speak to would mean 3-4 days...after the last shipment. The shops I went to got their latest shipment last Fri or Sat.

    My point is that the price should be so high...give it a month or so and price will stablized before it rises.

    Ok, but a month != 14 days.

    But whatever, this thread is about how I have been waiting for this to come out, so I'm not going to argue with you.

    I'm just glad that this finally came out. I was hoping that HLJ would eventually put it up for preorder, but so far, nothing.

    I'm not starting an arguement just pointing out a fact. When I first mentioned that I saw it within the last week of Aug and between first week of Sept, it was a "personal sighting", when it was released. The shop owner already had it displayed for over a month.

    By posting such info. other posters can determine the estimated price of the SOC. In my case, I was offered around USD$55-$60 (based on currency flucuations).

    Some of the shops in HK and Singapore seems to have their stocks early some as 1 or 2 months before the official release date. Example, CMS Genesic (spelling?)GaoGaiGar.

    Technically it's more of a...like...giant organic artificially created lifeform that was derived from a humanesque god-like monster alien woman creature thing....


    Oh and it has the soul of a dead human woman trapped in it that occasionally decides to take over control from the human pilot and do crazy shit. Hence the damage on this figure.


    I think that's the gist of it, based on literally minutes of previous research.
