A bust of EVA Unit 05, as it appears in Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0: You Can [Not] Advance.
About this creation
EVA Provisional Unit 05 is piloted by Makinami Mari Illustrious, and is stationed at NERV's Bethany Base. Provisional Unit 05 has four legs with a large wheel attached to the end of each. Random fun fact: though never explicitly stated in the original Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series, there is some implication that the EVA's rival mecha, the Jet Alone, malfunctioned in episode seven due to Ritsuko hacking its programming.
Front view. The head of Provisional Unit 05 breaks from bearing the traditional eyes, and instead has a visor-like portion in place on the 'face'. Unit 05 is also shown to have a mouth that opens simmilarly to Unit 01. The chest piece of Unit 05 is rather large and juts out forward from the body quite a distance. The neck is also a prominent feature on top of this. In order to keep this bust in simmilar parameters to most of my previous EVA busts, I opted to include only a small portion of the upper grey chest area, instead putting a greater focus on the neck.
Side view. Unit 05 has long metal bars that extend behind either piece of the shoulder armor. In Rebuild 2.0: You Can [Not] Advance, Unit 05 is seen navigating narrow passageways. I am under the impression that these bars may be used for the purpose of determining how much space the EVA has when navigating these areas.
Top-down view. Unit 05 sports an escape pod of sorts on its back, which is used by pilot Makinami Mari Illustrious in the film. It is unclear if Unit 05 uses a traditional entry plug system in conjunction with the escape pod, or if the pod is used in place of said entry plug.
Angled view from the rear.
Close-up view of the head.
As per tradition with my anime creations, below is a YouTube video of the song "At the Very Beginning", which plays during the first appearance of Unit 05 in Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0: You Can [Not] Advance. Ironically enough, the song does play at the very beginning of the film.
