Evangelion: World – Life-Size EVA-01 Construction Project Completed

Here's a Video of it

This Awesome!!O(≧∇≦)O

Via ANN:

Japan’s Fuji-Q HighLand amusement park has unveiled the world’s first life-size bust of the Evangelion anime’s EVA-01 unit before members of the media on Thursday. The public grand opening of the “Evangelion: World – Life-Size EVA-01 Construction Project” pavilion will actually take place next Friday, and the theme park plans to stream the event live on the Ustream website.

The pavilion’s main attraction recreates the scene where the anime’s main character Shinji Ikari encounters the EVA-01 unit in its 7th Cage hangar for the first time. The bust measures 9 meters (about 30 feet) tall and 16 meters (52 feet) wide. The pavilion also has a life-size Entry Plug cockpit of an Evangelion unit (from where visitors can pay to have their photos taken), life-size figures of the character Kaworu Nagisa and the SEELE monoliths, a miniature video theater, a museum, two studio galleries for taking photographs, and a shop. The construction costs of the whole facility eventually added up to 150 million yen (US$1.6 million).

This is really awesome to know that this Evangelion World will be a epic event and it will be great to go there someday. Its like a Museum for Evangelion fan's and to the new generation of otaku's!! Yeah!!
