Shanghai’s 81-Foot ‘Evangelion’ Statue Is A Record Breaker

Last summer at the ChinaJoy gaming expo, a massive Evangelion Unit-01 statue was unveiled as part of a promotion for Chinese software developer Heitao’s Evangelion mobile game. The statue was then moved to another location in Shanghai, and it debuted officially this passed Tuesday.

For this new installation, the giant robot is now holding the Spear of Longinus (which almost made a trip to the moon a couple of years back), so its total height clocks in at an incredible 81-feet, which was enough to earn a Guinness record for the largest Evangelion.
