The elbows were the only parts with ball joints
Evangelion Shinji figure not included
This is probably the first action figure line of Evangelion, at least to my recollection. The toy was made by SEGA, which I think they were better making console games then. The packaging was typical blister card so you clearly see the actual toy and accessories. The amount of accessories thrown in provided a good reason for buying the toy and in my opinion had compensated the figure's lack of articulation.
SEGA has also included a card with illustration of the mecha's pilot, Shinji Ikari. The action figure stands approximately 8" (good size for display) with more than decent sculpt and paint job. The elbows were the only parts with ball joints whereas other limb joints only allowed minimum movement, back and forth. Most of the poses were just standing and kind of rigid. Still, with some imagination, this action figure could produce relatively good poses.
