From the collaboration project "Godzilla vs Evangelion", NERV's "Anti-G Special Decisive Weapon – Shiryu(Purple Dragon) Prototype Unit 01" is revealed!
To fight against "Godzilla"… the monster which attacked and destroyed Japan's capital Tokyo countless times and considered as “disaster" just as the "Angels" are, this is an "Anti-G Weapon" which NERV constructed with technical data feedback from the "Kiryu Series" developed by the Japan Counter-Xenomorph Self Defense Force in the past.
It is at its prototype stage, and is given the name "Anti-G Special Decisive Weapon – Shiryu(Purple Dragon) Prototype Unit 01."
Among its armaments, are small blades on its spine and tail utilizing the same technology as the Progressive Knife, which can sever various objects at a molecular level using high vibration particles.
Also, it boasts a high close-combat capability with the "Anti Kaiju Battle Blades" attached to its arms.
Design for the "Shiryu" is by Yoji Shinkawa of Kojima Productions, as a product for the "Godzilla x Evangelion" collaboration project, skillfully merging the world of Godzilla and Evangelion together.
Engineering for the toy is by T-REX as a fully articulated action figure based on the design sketches by Yoji Shinkawa.
Its body being mostly consisted of ABS plastic, and nylon based parts for articulation, the wide range of motion enables it to take a hunchbacked pose like a “Kaijyu”, or standing straight up like an Eva unit.
Also, each segment of the tail is ball-jointed for smooth articulation.
The base color is titanium-imaged, which gives a feeling of depth to the final finished surface.
