According to Famitsu and Kaiju-Japan, the first maquette was on display at the recent Nico Nico Chokaigi event in Chiba, outside Tokyo.

Artist Takayuki Takeya sculpted the prototype from co-directors Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi’s designs and concepts. The miniature served as a reference as the production progressed.
