Japanese convenience stores always offer great limited products and prizes through collaborations. 7-Eleven upped the ante on products with their latest collaboration with Evangelion. They’re offering fans the opportunity to purchase a Unit-01 statue that stands 2 meters (about 6 feet and 7 inches) tall for the price of 1,836,000 yen, or about $17,991, taxes included. There are twenty-five normal and twenty-five 7-Eleven version Unit-01 statues. Interested customers need to fill out a form which will lead to a phone call from 7-Eleven regarding wire transfers. For those of us who don’t have $18,000 to spend on a statue, 7-Eleven will be giving away a 7-Eleven color Unit-01 to one lucky winner.
For those of us who don’t have room for a 2-meters tall statue, 7-Eleven is offering Evangelion prizes like instant noodles, bottle caps, Be@rbrick, figurines, and more.
I’d choose the Pen Pen plush over the Unit-01 statue any day! What about you guys?
