Gainax will be releasing three eye glass cases related to the Evangelion theatrical movie. Each case dons a plug suit theme. Basically, its a case with the pilot’s color, number, and HER name. I feel bad that Shinji is often left out =(. Sure, he is a guy, but I bet he got a few female fans. Each case has the dimensions of 5 cm by 15 cm. The frame is made from steel and the cover is made from polyurethane. Each case cost about 1,400 yen each and will be release in mid January 2011.
Since I am in my brainstorming stage of coming up with more potential products that I can start my own business, I think Gainax could have done a better job. I would have made a case that was a rough copy of the entry plug. Hell, I would have made a PVC mold of the back of an EVA with the plug coming out to keep it from rolling. That would be bad ass, but the price would go up. Maybe I am missing the point of the product lol. It is suppose to be easy to take around, cheap, and without bells and whistles. These pens are awesome, I’m surprised the pens are still in stock.
But yeah, they should have been slightly more creative.
