In order to celebrate the upcoming release of “Godzilla Resurgence”, the first Japanese-made Godzilla film since Final Wars in 2004, the film’s official website has released several high-quality crossover artwork pieces of Godzilla facing off with Unit 01 from the “Neon Genesis Evangelion” anime franchise! Hideko Anno, the chief director of “Godzilla Resurgence”, was also the executive director of Evangelion, making this April Fools-themed collaboration between these two franchises even more poignant for fans of giant monster tales. For this special occasion, Godzilla designer Shinji Nishikawa and kaiju artist Yuji Kaida were contracted to make art pieces depicting these two popular monsters, and special prints and clear files of these pieces will be made available for fans who check out “Godzilla Resurgence” in theaters across Japan on July 29th.

International convenience store chain 7-Eleven has been known to collaborate with famous anime icons and characters in the past, most recently producing a number of 7-Eleven-themed Gundam model kits and other merchandise. Now, 7-Eleven has collaborated with popular anime franchise Evangelion in order to create towering statues of the iconic Eva Unit 01!

This statue, which measures in at 2 meters tall (6 feet 5 inches), was created for an upcoming Japan-only 7-Eleven competition, in which customers can follow their Twitter or Facebook pages for a chance to win one of the two giant Evangelion statues. Fans who aren’t feeling particularly lucky can also purchase a statue directly from 7-Eleven’s online store for 1,700,000 yen. On top of that, two color variants will be produced of the Eva 01 statue: a normal version with anime-accurate colors, and a brand-new design that covers Eva 01 in 7-Eleven’s iconic color scheme and decals!



7-Eleven has also announced that the Evangelion collaboration will continue with Eva Racing over the course of August, and will carry other Eva-based limited edition goods in their convenience stores, such as Eva-themed BearBricks, stuffed animals, collectible figurines, and more!
