I feel like the Netflix release has taken the wind out of any super-ultra-mega-expensive ULTIMATE EDITION. I mean I love Eva and will probably pre-order the UE, but these aren't the days when Eva had been out of print forever and the only way to watch it legally was to buy some colossally overpriced eBay auction.

I mean you can just go on Netflix and watch it right now and that's going to be good enough for all but the most hardcore weeb physical disc collectors. 5 years ago I could see myself spending £300+, but I honestly think if it's more than £150 I'll probably just pass.

I'm on the lines of £80 for the series and £15 each for the movies.. So totalling around £110 with an RRP of £150. EB maybe £90?

Less than others have said in this thread but I think much more would be an easy miss for me

Had a quick look at their previous Ultimates to jog my memory and the look like this:

Eureka Seven - srp £180 sell price £130
Wolf's Rain - srp £150 sell price £110
Perfect Blue - srp £100 sell price £90
B: The Beginning - srp £130 sell price £100
Gundam SEED - srp £200 sell price £130

Looking at that and considering we're talking about EVANGELION which probably had a seven figure licence price and looks to be a joint UK/US/AU release I think anybody who thinks this is going to have an srp of under £200 is kidding themselves...

If AL proves me wrong I'll be very happy though.

I’m expecting it to be the same price as Cowboy Bebop’s UE was.

I think I'll let the super fans get their hands on this and I'll (hopefully) grab the CE in a year or 2.

I already have the best version of Eva on my shelf The manga

I have a weird feeling I will say the rebuilds are the best due to my turn towards love of 3.33 but we shall see tomorrow. (For me the manga is by far the worst version atm)

The trinkets seem to be unique to each edition, so I'm wondering if the UK will get an Adam mask pin. That could look cool. Also a Unit 01 helmet Keychain so I can forever leave it in the box so as to not feel like it's incomplete.

Not gonna lie but I feel like I'm the only one in this universe (Anime viewer) who hasn't even watched the original EVA as of present.

Though I'm still going to dip on this release because I'm not buying no tin box at the current market price ಠᴥಠ

However if the UE is over £190 I'm doing a 180° 🚪

Don't worry, you're not alone - I've only seen the 1.0 and 2.0 movies 😅

I've never watched any Evangelion stuff yet (and I haven't seen any Gundam stuff either 😜 ), so you're not alone, I swear there are dozens of us! Dozens!

I honestly have no idea whether this is something I'd be into or not, but I'm pretty sure the price is going to rule out a blind buy for me, so I'll probably try watching the 1st couple episodes before the early bird ends to see if I'm interested.
