Courtesy of the Planet Iacon fanpage on Facebook, we get a look at an interesting piece of artwork found in a hobby magazine, featuring Takara Masterpiece MP-10 Optimus Prime in new colours, vaguely reminiscent of the Shattered Glass deco. But no, they are in fact the colour scheme of extremely popular (in Japan and elsewhere) anime franchise Neon Genesis Evangelion based EVA Unit-01, shown in the background of the piece. Take a look at the mirrored image below, and a translation of the text, courtesy of Anime News Network!

Transformers News: Potential Takara Tomy Masterpiece MP-10/Neon Genesis Evangelion Crossover Repaint - Updated


The Angels are invading. Breaking a long silence, the mysterious life-forms known as the Angels suddenly appear. The weapons the UN forces gather together in retaliation can't even scratch them. In the end, they turn to the secret agency, NERV, to manage the anti-Angel strategy.

With Neo-Tokyo 3 in their sights, the Angels slowly advance upon the city...but suddenly a spaceship comes hurtling down from the sky above the Angels: the Sky Lynx! Out of the ship emerges warriors of the far-off planet Cybertron. They've come to investigate after noticing an unusual energy reading.

"We can't let a disaster like the Second Impact occur on this planet."
"What?! What are these monsters?!"

The shocked Cybertron convoy sets its sights on an enemy much bigger than themselves.

If they made this a toy, I would [not] buy it.

That was [not] an Evangelion joke.

(This actually looks pretty cool. Like Toxitron and he spliced CNA to make this. Kinda reminds me of that Titanfall April Fools joke)

Ultra Magnus is [Not] a white MP-10.

Takara can [Not] milk this mold for no valid reason. This situation does [Not] make sense.

Never would I have imagined that these two series would ever have some sort of crossover or joint venture project or whatever this might be.

I'm into it! Evangelion is an INCREDIBLE series(even if it really makes no sense whatsoever a lot of the time). But as a fan of both franchises I think this is too cool to pass up! :APPLAUSE:

So long as Micahel Bay is not let anywhere near this project...

:HEADHURTS:

Different ... don't mind the look of it either.

It's bad enough nearly every thread about the movies has some anti-Bay comment in it, do you really need to bring that crap to non-movie threads as well? No, you don't.

Anime News Network attempted to translated the body of text at the bottom of the image, particular the "Story" part, and got this charming little result:

So you did.

It seems ANN is a bit confused on a few things, such as not knowing that "Convoy" and "Sky Lynx" are the names of characters rather than a team or a ship name.

I've considered it a faint possibility since, oh, the summer of '98...  ...and if you apply a religious subtext to Rodimus Prime's final line from 5 Faces of Darkness, it could almost be the the tagline for Evangelion:

"We Transformers have looked into the face of our creators...and seen the face of an enemy."
