Neon Genesis Evangelion "Problem Child" and pilot of the Provisional Evangelion Unit-05 MARI ILLUSTRIOUS MAKINAMI
Evangelion's newest pilot and most mysterious pilot : Mari Makinami!
Neon Genesis Evangelion continues to be one of the most enduring anime franchises in history, with some of the most beloved characters of all time. In the newest lineup comes the “Problem Child” and pilot of the Provisional Evangelion Unit-05 MARI ILLUSTRIOUS MAKINAMI -PLUG SUIT STYLE-!
Mari is the confident and eccentric pilot of the Provisional Evangelion Unit-05, which differs drastically from previous incarnations, featuring four mechanical "legs" that end in wheels and a lack of hands which have been replaced with a jousting lance and "claw". Because of its unique design, Mari pilots her Eva wearing a helmet-like contraption, and the wrists of her plugsuit have several attachments that connect to tubing that apparently helps her in moving the Evangelion. Even while piloting Unit-02, her plugsuit features a 5 on the back, symbolizing that she is the pilot of Unit-05. She seems to have poor vision, wearing glasses at all times and having difficulty finding her glasses when she drops them from the collision with Shinji while parachuting.
Joining the previous two Plug Suit Style girls Rei Ayanami and Asuka Langley, the cute and self-confident Mari relaxes after battle. Standing in her highly detailed green and white plug suit (complete with chest and hip attachments and three tentacle-like tubes extending from her right forearm), the girl poses with a subtle feminine twist as she cocks her head and holds her unique helmet slung over her shoulder. A blue hair band decorates her long hair, and beneath her bangs Mari gives you a cute smile. You can even display the pilot with or without her bright red eyeglasses! Sculpted by Yuzo, Mari stands 10 inches (1/7 scale) on a blasted georama base. Display her on her own or alongside her plug suit sisters!
