A stylish image of EVA-02 figure manufactured by Kaiyodo XEBEC Toys, sculpted by Katsuhisa Yamaguchi in addition of new paint scheme of devilish sizzling red and fiery orange to heat up Asuka Langley's favourite giant robot. Weathering effects or shadings along those intricate trim lines had as added more contours and realistic feel.
The 8" (taller if not for the hunch) Xebec toy line by Kaiyodo seems like the predecessor of Revoltech in a bigger scale (which is a better size IMHO), pay more attention on the sculpt and vivid paint job in particular. It's also one of those few Neon Evangelion figures that come in such over-sized blister card (Probably a box would be more appropriate). Kaiyodo certainly put smiles on those having this figure with an incredible range of arsenal from machine gun, magnum to melee weapon like the samurai sword and progressive knife (which resemble a pen knife). Optional hands and plug cable were included as well.
One of the drawbacks in would be the limitation in posing due to having only 15 points of articulation. The pose is mainly restricted to wide legs apart stances though kneeling poses are possible. Another flaw would be the figure's tendency of falling forward, blaming the unbalance center of gravity. Nevertheless, it's a great figure and the details kind of make up for it.
