Attention Neon Genesis Evangelion fans! Make that, Eva fans with lots and lots of money to spend. 7-Eleven if offering a limited edition statue for a large amount of money.

According to 7-Eleven, the Evangelion Unit-01 statue measures around two meters tall and is priced at 1.836 million yen (or US$17,892).

It's limited to 25 units, in both the standard Eva Unit-01 color as well as a 7-Eleven colors version. Because if you spend nearly eighteen grand on something at 7-Eleven, you need to be reminded of that!

To purchase the statue, you fill out a form and bring it to the register at your local Japanese 7-Eleven. That's followed up with a phone call from 7-Eleven and a bank transfer. Four months later, two staffers deliver and assemble the statue.

7-Eleven points out that this is a large amount of money, and states that it won't accept payment for the statue in the store. So don't bring a briefcase of cash if you're in the market for this Unit-01. There's also a giveaway campaign for each color, allowing folks who don't have $18,000 to burn on a Eva statue the chance to win one.
