In addition, the Takara website for the crossover has been updated with another haunting piece of artwork to serve as backdrop to the second part of the story! Check both out below, and head here for the Japanese text (our English version is an attempt via machine translation and human tweaking, forgive us).

Transformers News: Takara Tomy Masterpiece MP-10/Neon Genesis Evangelion - Story Update and New Images


Right then, a mysterious shadow appeared in front of the Angel.
"Power... this... this body feels worthy... yes.. "
"That... voice, Starscream. What? No way?!"
Convoy raised his voice unintentionally. Starscream somehow continued to wander, he lost is life in the Unicron war a few years back, his spark left his body... you could call his state.. a ghost .
The shadow of Starscream's ghost merges with the angel, its figure started to mutate. It becomes something different, something half Starscream , half angel - AngelScream.
"What is happening?! Is the angel changing..?!"
Misato wasn't able to hide her surprise at the situation either.
"I have obtained a new body at last!"
AngelScream raised a laugh. He noticed Convoy at his feet.
"An angel, you say? No, also Cybertronian now. And it feels right - let me try this new power!"
AngelScream aimed his wrath at Convoy. The massive size difference shortly puts the Autobots in a desperate situation.

Everything grew more chaotic as one unexpected event followed the other. Commander Misato tells orders the launch of the EVA-01 Unit. New Tokyo 3 begins to change.
"What is going on? Is this place like Scramble City?"
As Convoy's mind rushes, the ground opens before his eyes, and the EVA-01 Unit rises out of it. The Cybertron warriors were overwhelmed by the sheer size of it, nothing they had ever seen before.

Nice to see they got the upcoming Masterpiece figures in that artwork.

It's interesting to note that the artwork for the previous text story goes better with this story than this artwork does, since the first artwork actually featured "Shitoscream/Angelscream" while this artwork depicts something completely unrelated to this story.

That story reads like bad fanfiction :lol:

Still, I may be on board with this; especially if they make an Angelscream down the line.

Convoy is not Shinji. This story has given no indication of him acting any differently than normal.

While the Takara Tomy Transformers/Neon Genesis Evangelion Eva Mode Convoy repaint of MP-10 may already be sold out (though some of our site sponsors still have a handful of orders), another update to the story has been uploaded to the product site! Check out some new artwork of Eva Convoy battling the Angel Starscream, and an attempted translation of the accompanying text.

"How has the human race been able to make such a huge robot?!"
A strange sensation came over Convoy, on seeing the giant figure.
(No... this feeling... not a robot? Seimeinokodou, call this the primitive ...?)
[Convoy Scanning Eva first aircraft to be guided], it suddenly grew in size. Its body and colour changing to match that of the EVA Unit-01.
"Now... now Transformers are... Eva ...?"
Misato of the Nerv staff was stunned by the scene in front of her.

The gigantic Convoy turned to face the Angel Scream, opening its chest armor to increase its cry.
"Uoo O~o~o~o~o Golfo ...!"
The Matrix held in its chest was as red as the core of the Angels, shining as if a new life had been born.
A new battle, a different stage... begins.

If we get a SachielScream I am going to be so happy.

Still kinda disappointed that Spike wasn't remolded/redeco'd into Shinji though. Although I reckon the little Shinji minifigure that comes with the old LMHG Eva 01 plamo (which I am fortunate enough to own) would scale right though. Though as I don't have MP Prime, I can't comment...

Did I just read that right? Optimus scanned Eva01 and is now a gigantic angry truck transformer? I'd hate to be Sachielscream right now... :lol:

Interesting thing about all these TF/EVA stories, chapter 1 had a pic more befitting chapter 2, chapter 2 had a pic more befitting chapter 3, and chapter 3 had a pic more befitting to coming after chapter 3, while no chapter had any pic appropriate for chapter 1.

So the solicitations said only 1000 would be sold in Japan, right?

Do we know how many are being sold in the US, or how big the production run is?

Seeing as it's a Japanese-only figure, I'd guess that the number for units being sold domestically in the US is zero.

Not counting for online importers, of course. ;)

It's not out, but that's exactly why I want to know... I'm just curious at how many are being produced, and how many of that total production run will be sold in the US. I want to know how 'limited' it really is.

That was a fan custom on display at a con, which some sites mistook for a real figure.
