Enormous ‘Evangelion’ Pavilion to Launch at Mt. Fuji Theme Park This July

Japan’s ongoing love affair with interactive scale models of mechs is raging on past robots and mobile suits and straight into the genetically-engineered-sorta-angels-in-armor realm of “Neon Genesis Evangelion” with a !:1 scale bust of Shinji Ikari’s EVA Unit 01.

As reported by Anime News Network, Fuji-Q HighLand amusement park is slated to unveil its “Evangelion: World – Life-Size EVA-01 Construction Project” along with a life-size EVA cockpit and other items on July 23.

The exhibit is designed to effectively recreate the experience of piloting your own EVA with visitors encouraged to take photos (for a price) in and around the angel-fighting, nervous-breakdown-generating protector of Tokyo-3. It’s not clear from available information, but at this rate, the pavilion’s only omission other than EVA-01′s legs should be a scale duplicate of Yui Ikari’s soul.

Construction is expected to wrap at the end of May, at which time I sincerely hope to see some official photos. Until then, I’ll be working to build up my personal AT field should any pesky extra-dimensional beings show up looking for trouble.[Via ANN]
