>Unit-01
>Mostly purple with neon green highlights + orange spots here & there.
>This set, being renamed Unit-01
>Mostly gray with neon green highlights + purple spots here & there

Am I the crazy one here? Is this not an obvious mismatch?

I have to agree this set looks nothing like Unit-01.

I have to agree with these two posters. I don't feel like this set has anything to do with Unit-01.

I have to agree with these three posters. I don't feel like this set has anything to do with Unit-01.
But if there was a keyboard inside of the Eva... It would absolutely look like this.
Unlikely so

That's the command center, not the eva.

Lmao
Op: names set Kaiju
People: this is too close to eva. Might as well just call it unit 1. Neon Genesis vibes for sure.
Op:likes Eva. Changes name to unit 01
People: this looks nothing like unit 01. I'm not seeing the connection. Not enough Eva.

Lmao xD if the color scheme stays the same, I'm in. Don't care. Lol

hahaha might as well go back to its original name of kaiju. imo, color-wise, it fits the name better than the one by nephlock.

Something's really speaking to me about this set. Must be the green and gray alphas possibly. :eek: Also I want to watch Neon Genesis Evangelion now as I'm just getting into some anime.

It's because FullMetal said in Update #2 that he changed the inspiration to something along the lines of evoking what it'd be like in the cockpit of Unit-01 which it does not evoke.

Edit: removed some wording which after re-reading may have come off snide.

In my defense the original design was not meant to be EVA it was morphed into this form by taking community feedback. The dissimilarity comments have only appeared after the name change, before this there were far too many people commenting to ignore that the set took some inspiration from the colors of EVA-01. I took some artistic liberties with the amount of grey used, this was intentional. I realize there is a liberal use of grey here but it is not nonexistent in the EVA design. I realize it is a small accent and not a primary color, I wanted to originally create a more subdued set than something like NGE or Laser by using neutral colors.

I think adding orange to the base kit makes things start to look very garish. I was already planning on having orange novelty keys for people that would like a touch of orange.

I'm going to leave this render here and see if people would like to see the base kit that leaves out the grey, (also cutting down on price) and is similar to the alternate alpha kit but using green instead while turning the mods green and violet. A much more faithful representation of EVA-01.

If a faithful representation of EVA-01 is what you are looking for, then sure by all means completely leave out the grey. Personally though, I would recommend sticking to your initial vision and consider renaming this set to something else. Having the colors evoke EVA-01 should not have to mean that you completely abandon your initial vision.

Definitely prefer the original with grey alphas. People are just nit picking the name and theme, **** em, to be quite frank. Still looking  forward to comparing Violet C and 268C (one pantone away from the last purple you were trying) If we can brainstorm colors for a few days and put up a vote thatd be shwiggitty,

I'd agree about the name. I personally don't really care about it but I certainly got really hyped about the gray/green alphas. One thing I don't like after re-checking renders is icon mods. I maybe old fashioned but I dig regular icon mods and not the new ones for Alt/Ctrl/Home and all the other stuff. Like I'm fine with the standard Enter, Shift, Caps Lock, Tab icons but Esc and the previously mentioned looks a bit weird for my taste. I do get why you want to go with Icon only modifiers though and you definitely shouldn't take my opinion into account lol.

Wow, I'd get this in addition to the gray alphas.

If you made Esc + Enter muted orange with black legends... where do I throw my money?

Feel like an idiot for buying that Troubled Minds R2 since I prefer this profile, would definitively still throw down on this more EVA focused set.

FWIW for avoiding future duplicate name, etc issues I believe thisisacamper is working on a red and black EVA-03 set inbetween things

Yeah I do prefer the new colorway. Looks great!

If we're talking more calculatingly here, one hypothesis we can draw from recent successful GMK GBs (Laser, Wavez, Metropolis, maybe even Bento) is that: There's a healthy appetite for striking, vibrant, eff-you-look-at-me colorways. People love those. Wavez did very well despite not being on (Mass)Drop.

So yeah, I hope you'd go for this. The neon green on purple is very unique for GMK, even more so with sublegends, and it's not as garish as GMK NGE's all-green modifiers  :thumb:

Precisely because so many of the recent sets fits your above description that I feel the more muted tones of the original design would provide a nice healthy contrast to them. Not everyone likes eff-you sets and there's been a real dearth of such that aren't simply one or two toned.

Huh, I would argue that it's the opposite. The sets I mentioned are very recent and IMO the outliers, not the norms when it comes to colors.
But hey, I'm not gonna debate numbers that I don't have with you. Let's wait and see how others react to this new set. Maybe a poll at some point by OP will settle that :)

Keeping the same color for the legends on the alphas and mods reads much better. 

My eyes had trouble shifting from the bright green to the less bright purple on gray.  I really like the purple on gray, but you'd need to tone down the green legends so it's all balanced in brightness.

I think the awakened set is harder to call.  I think the red is going to be hard to read...

I've had a change of heart on this set, honestly, with some of the recent updates. I think it could be THE Evangelion set if we could nail a few things:

-Some real solid novelties, not meh ones like troubled minds. It would be awesome to get a small EVA-looking image like what Mizu does with the bear and waves.
-Accent mods. I really like how it looks with green, but I'd also like to see what the red awakened set with red accent mods looks like.
-Good color correction testing - I see noctilocous and troubled minds and they both kind of undersaturate the green. I don't think this set will suffer the same issue, but I would be better safe than sorry.

Overall, I really like the direction this set is taking with the awakened Hiragana (non-sublegend). I know a lot of people disagree and it's a matter of taste, honestly. I personally find the hiragana more minimalistic and in tune with the set.

consensus seems to be: original grey legends and they way to go, and awakened alphas as a child kit (either plain hiragana or sub legends would be a nice thing to vote on)
Lets get back to the real discussion of color matching. Violet C is nice, lets see 268C side by side?

That's definitely not true. If you tally up the posts since the new render was posted then you'd see that more people are in favor of the purple alphas than the gray alphas. I do like the gray alphas, however, and think they should be included as a separate kit.

Are you counting the people who only commented because of the new render.. the actual number of replies does not indicate which is more popular, it just happens to be who saw it and decided to reply that day.

I'm not doing anything, only suggesting that the past week has been completely useless as far as pushing this forward in a way that will get people interested. Half the people commenting are more concerned with whether the name makes sense than actually discussing the original concept on the first post. It's not fun seeing something you're excited about trash talked and turned into something different because op thinks he owes evangelion nerds a anime keyset.

This is an Interest Check.
Things are liable to change during Interest Checks.
It will stop when OP makes it so.
Itís weird how you, not OP, out of nowhere attempted to shift the discussion topic while everyone, including OP, are still debating which colorway to pick.
If OP decides the alphas would be gray only, Iíd respectfully abide. Until then, Iíll keep on arguing for my case.
> trash talked
Man, if this qualifies as ďtrash talkĒ to you, I canít wait for you to read the current IC thread for GMK Oblivion R2

Troubled minds isnít an Eva set

Like Forever said, it's a Joker (The Killing Joke specifically) set. The EVA part was an afterthought because it too, had a similar color scheme albeit slightly different hues and added novelties from there.

Man, I really hope we can get a timeline of sorts on this

I'm on the fence with getting Mizu but if this is running this year I gotta hold out for it
