NERV HQ Toys are Like the ‘Evangelion’ Version of Mighty Max

When the unpainted images of Namco Bandai’s NERV base trading figures based on “Neon Genesis Evangelion” made their way to Web earlier this month, fans knew they were in for a miniature diorama that transformed into the organization’s signature pyramid shape, but the new painted images present the blind-boxed imported collectibles in a much radder light. All it takes is a glance to affirm that the set is totally a friggin’ Mighty Max-style adventure kit stocked with NERV agents and EVA pilots.Polly Pocket fans may cry foul at my assertion, but there’s no denying the assembled toy and its peg-like figures don’t bear a strong resemblance to the monster-stocked zones explored by the baseball capped Max in the best possible way.

Ordering the set is a bit of a gamble as the full NERV headquarters is composed of five pieces that may or may not be included in The Big Bad Toystore’s $70 assortment of ten random pieces that would ideally include:

1. Rei and Unmanned Entrance Gate
2. Asuka and 7th Laboratory
3. EVA-01 Cage
4. Shinji, Misato and Central Dogma
5. Gendo, Central War Room and Second Test Site

Its kind of a bummer that Shinji Ikari’s EVA Unit 01 can’t actually launch to reveal an in-scale warrior, but should Bandai choose to further exploit a generation of international fans’ love of small-scale diorama action, EVAs and angels would be a very welcome addition.
