    Takara Tomy Crosses Transformers with Evangelion

    Like This Thread!
    Didn't see a thread for this. Thought it might be interesting for here.

    Japan Is Making An Official Evangelions/Transformers Crossover



    Oh my god. Toymaker Takara Tomy has announced that they're doing... something that involves the Transformers invading the world of Evangelion, as evidenced by this phenomenal picture of Optimus Prime decked out like Shinji's Unit-01.Since Takara Tomy is responsible, I think we can assume there's going to be a special edition toyline at the very least, even though they'll probably just be repaints of old Transformers figures (awesome repaints, but still), and there'll likely be other merchandise as well. But this ad, placed in Hobby Japan and other toy magazines, also featured the following story:
    The Angels are invading. Breaking a long silence, the mysterious life-forms known as the Angels suddenly appear. The weapons the UN forces gather together in retaliation can't even scratch them. In the end, they turn to the secret agency, NERV, to manage the anti-Angel strategy.
    With Neo-Tokyo 3 in their sights, the Angels slowly advance upon the city...but suddenly a spaceship comes hurtling down from the sky above the Angels: the Sky Lynx! Out of the ship emerges warriors of the far-off planet Cybertron. They've come to investigate after noticing an unusual energy reading.
    "We can't let a disaster like the Second Impact occur on this planet."
    "What?! What are these monsters?!"

    The shocked Cybertron convoy sets its sights on an enemy much bigger than themselves.
    OH MY GOD THE AUTOBOTS ARE GOING TO FIGHT THE ANGELS. If they've bothered to write down a storyline, I seriously hope this means there's at least going to be a manga or something; I feel like we as a people deserve to see Optimus Prime crushing Kaworu in his giant metal hands in some form or another.
    My thoughts: It can't be any worse than You Can Not Redo.

    Seriously, horrible movie and I spit on it.

    I wonder how far they are taking this and if it's just a toy deal.

    I think the better thing: It can't be worse than Transformers: Kissplayers. Seriously, (NSFW) what the hell....

    EDIT: To clarify, it's actually not a cross over, but man, Takara has done some not-so-desirable things with Transformers in the past.

    Cool idea for merchandise. To actually write it would surely lead to one of the most bizarre mashups in history.

    If fans run with this, can somebody do a fanfic where Optimus just steps on Gendo or something? Thanks in advance.
    I would suggest that it's not the medium, but the quality of perception and expression, that determines the significance of art. But what would a cartoonist know? -Bill Watterson

    Too bad they can't get James Roberts to write this.

    A toy would be cool. A full-on manga or anime? Even cooler.
