As Marvel’s Attack on Titan collaboration continues to turn heads, Transformers‘ ongoing collaboration with mecha anime, Neon Genesis Evangelion, now has an official story thanks to the release of the Transformer / Evangelion Masterpiece Optimus Prime EVA Mode figure, whose pre-orders immediately sold out last June.
The new figure features Optimus Prime (known as Convoy in Japan) sporting the Evangelion Unit 01’s purple and green colors. To further excite fans and collectors, the Takara Tomy Mall official website has presented a new story which involves the villainous Decepticon, Starscream, getting merged with an Angel and attacking Optimus and the Autobots.
With the Angels attacking Earth, NERV is at wit’s end on how to deal with the threat. Luckily, the Autobots, led by Optimus Prime, have arrived in Neo Tokyo to prevent another tragedy like Second Impact to occur. However, the new Angel attacking Neo Tokyo is none other than the Decepticon, Starscream. Thought to have been killed by Galvatron during the Unicron War, he comes back to Earth as an Angel and more powerful than before.
Eva-01 then arrives, and with the help of the Matrix of Leadership, Optimus Prime gains the power of an Evangelion to battle this new Angel/ Decepticon threat.
With his new powers, Optimus Prime has grown larger, and big enough to take on the new threat. In an all-out battle, Optimus Prime uses his Energy Axe to battle Angel Starscream and tear through his AT Field.
With Starscream now beaten, the Autobots head to Neo Tokyo, and Optimus, now back to normal size, gets a new trailer courtesy of NERV. However, the threat is only beginning as more Decepticons are expected to turn into Angels…
Now ain’t that exciting? The Optimus Prime Evangelion figure costed 2,500 yen and is set for release later this month.
