Looks like Neca and Sideshow have their dibbs on the Pacific Rim products.

Hopefully NECA will show off a prototype or two, at Toy Fair next month.

Possible info on the first wave of PR toys. Just a rumor for now, but I hope it ends up true.

I would have preferred Striker Eureka over Crimson Typhoon, but it's ok. Hopefully they'll make all the Jaegers and Kaiju,

They don't have permission to show off the Kaiju yet. Sucks, but it's what we've got to deal with. On the bright side, at least we have an idea of which Kaiju we're getting as toys. Striker Eureka being the third Jaeger figure means the leaked image is of the six initial characters being done as toys:

I guess I can understand holding off on the kaiju, and I'm sure we'll have images of them before the film comes out. I just wanted to see what the articulation is going to be like on the kaiju.

2 out of my 3 favorite Jaegers got figures, excellent! I didn't expect to see Striker Eureka, a good surprised. Too bad about about the Kaiju, but we'll get em soon.

The kaiju in the middle of the leaked image. That's theone in the trailer right? The one Gypsy Danger is fighting? The one seen dead on the aircraft carrier?

It's the one from the beginning of the trailer, but I don't think it's the same kaiju that roars at the end.

All three of them were in the trailer I believe, in different segments.

The one on the right, I think the one dubbed Knifehead, is the one attacking at the start of the trailer, I think also dead on the aircraft carrier later.

The middle one is the one that we see getting a rocket punch to the face.

The left one is probably the one that roars at the very end, mostly obscured from sight. A lot like its corresponding image, really.

You mean the kaiju destroying the bridge?

The creature destroying the bridge, and that is later seen on a ship is the Knifehead one, but the creature that roars at the very end isn't any of those leaked Kaiju pics.

I think the only one of those three to be seen in the trailer is the middle one, which would be this guy: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Ys0HYAUAnAI/U ... kaiju5.png

No other kaiju in the trailer resembles the hammer head and crocodile kaiju.

I could see why I made that mistake about the end-trailer monster, from what little we see of it, but my memory was way off about the one at the beginning at the bridge. Yeah, nothing like the right one.

Since the Series 1 listing is rounded off by the "Knifehead Kaiju", and the middle creature is the only one of the three to appear in the trailer, it makes sense that it would be the one to come out in June.

So that leaked image with the Jaeger and Kaiju, that's from NECA I take it? Boxart or something for the figures?

Is it just those 6 they'll be releasing?

I hadn't seen that leaked image yet. I like Knifehead Kaiju, but man does he remind me of Guiron.

The first one reminds me a bit of Eleking, and the last one reminds me of McFarlane Toys' Sea Creature figure.

^ Thanks for posting it here! Saw it yesterday and I wished it was out of package on Knifehead so the detail can be seen better.

Looks like a pretty decent Guiron update...kind of tempting since I have a whole shelf devoted to Guiron.

The croc kaiju might tempt me too...
