The official Evangelion website announced on Friday that an 18.5-meter (60-foot) long figure of the Neon Genesis Evangelion character Rei Ayanami will be built outside of the NTV Tower in the Shiodome area of Tokyo as part of the "Shiohaku Expo 2012" summer amusement event. The figure will feature a slide (pictured at right) that attendees can slide down during the event.
The event goes from July 25 through August 26 and is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
Additionally, a third branch of the Evangelion Store will open in the nearby NTV company building featuring limited-edition merchandise.
By comparison, the life-size Gundam currently standing in front of the Gundam Front Tokyo at Diver City Tokyo stands at 18 meters (59 feet) tall.
