Inspired by Eva Unit 01 from the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, Derrick Li has built this fantastic-looking miniature LEGO mech. Although the mech has a bright, playful colour scheme, be warned, it is a savage fighter. The thin build captures the humanoid style of the mechs featured in the show with their tall, athletic proportions. There are some inventive techniques applied at the head, such as the use of what appears to be a quarter circular tile representing the glowing yellow eyes. The spindly fingers are formed of wands, from the Harry Potter sets.
There is also a great arch in the back which creates the mech’s odd hunch. It is incredible how accurately Derrick has managed to portray the intricate details of Eva Unit 01, especially in this miniature scale.

As this sinister-looking creature, known as Zeurel, looms over the countryside, it’s hard to imagine that this beast is actually deemed as an “angel.” Hailing from the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, these angels are antagonistic creatures, causing chaos and destruction. Builder Lache has interpreted the original design in Lego form as an entry for this year’s Biocup. The wide spread of tentacles provides the model with a sense of mass and power. The use of a large inversed tyre creates a bulbous form around its short but significant head. Penetrating eyes peer through the slits in a Bionicle mask which creates the puppet-like face. But the most impressive use of pieces has to be in the green landscape at the bottom of the build. It’s cleverly made up of various Bionicle parts such as Piraka feet pieces.

Mathijs Dubbeldam had a goal: to build the world’s most accurate EVA Unit 02 from the anime, Neon Genesis Evangelion. The head in particular reads strikingly accurate to me, but I am also impressed with the iconic long limbs, lanky frame, and spot-on details right down to the fingernails.

I suspect that Pascal (pasukaru76) has more of these delightful fellows coming, but for now we can make do with no-name and Raziel. His first two little LEGO neo-angels (presumably based on Evangelion) are just so cute.
I’ve been waiting a long time to blog this. Moko has been teasing us with work-in-progress images of his Neon Genesis Evangelion mecha for the last three years, and the finished model is finally revealed. The model stands 120 cm (nearly 4 feet) tall, and weighs 9.4 kg (20.7 pounds). I feel words will fail me in trying to encapsulate its awesomeness, but here goes.
First off, the color is spectacular. All that purple must have cost a pretty penny. Second, the engineering is brilliant. We’ve seen large-scale, articulated mechas before, most of them based on Brian Cooper’s Teknomeka design. One of the limitations of that design was the bulk that resulted from all the gearing in the joints to support the weight of large scale mechas. Moko was able to pull off a build that is similar in scale, but so much more elegant and slim, as befitting the source material, the Evangelion Unit-01.
Thirdly, Moko’s deft sense of style added to the equation results in probably one of the best LEGO mechas I’ve ever seen. Plus, he did not paint or modify any bricks, and it’s articulated! Check out the second image for a sense of the scale of this marvel.
If you’re in Japan, you can see Moko’s Evangelion unit in person at the Osaka University LEGO Club’s upcoming display on May 2nd and 3rd, during Golden Week.

From his younger brother, we learn that David Collins (intrond) recently emerged from a 20-year LEGO Dark Ages and began posting his LEGO creations to Flickr. My favorite so far is an Evangelion mecha — Omega:
Mike Crowley wins. He just does. At everything. More specifically, he’s found 7668 Rebel Scout Speeder and promptly created a truly unique minifig using the new helmet. Behold! Eva Mass Prodution Type (from the anime series Evangelion).
