new drawing concept art for Gipsey 2.0. The Jaeger line up shows how the new Gipsey might scale with the other Jaegers.

Ordered Battle Damaged Knifehead, he's being prepared for shipment. Excite. :D

Also, I might just have to trade my BD Gypsy Danger for the 2.0, it looks sweet from what I can see, and the plasma cannons are kewl. I hope a Striker Eureka 2.0 comes out soon, being my favorite of all the Jeagers, the first version of the figure has some disappointing aspects that could be corrected.

I was at a comic shop today and saw they had the new battle damaged Knifehead and the Tresspasser. These guys are huge! I really liked Tresspasser a lot. I was tempted to get him but I'm on the road and don't have enough space in my suitcase. I mean, seriously, they (and their packaging) were very large. They also had the 18 inch Gypsy Danger. It was pretty epic too. But Tresspasser was really really neat. And after seeing these in person I have high hopes for the NECA Godzilla figures. I can't say for sure since I wasn't able to open one and play with it, but just looking at it, it looked like the engineering was much better and more robust than some other NECA stuff. So maybe these won't be so prone to breaking.

My best friend picked me up a Coyote Tango from the mall earlier today, it's amazing!!! The articulation and detail are really great, the cannons move up and down which honestly kinda surprised me. C-Tango's the tallest out of all the Jaegers I have so far as well (I have Striker and BD Gypsy). I wish my BD Knifehead would hurry up and get here! I'm really excited about the NECA Godzilla stuff too, I'm saddened that the 1985 figure got delayed though. ;--; Here's some pics!

Coyote Tango always reminds me of something built in the Armored Core video game series. Great pics!

Thanks! Also, I loooooooooooove Armored Core. I have almost all of the PS2 games. Update: Striker's hip joint broke yesterday, I was extremely saddened, but I managed to fix it with an application of crazy glue. His leg can still move back and forth, but not in and out, which is perfectly acceptable, considering his legs could hardly do that to begin with. Still.....NECA, please please please use sturdier plastic in the future. All I did was pick Striker up!

Got these two. I like Tresspasser a bit more than Knifehead, even if I dig Knifehead more as a kaiju.

haha...well don't feel bad, Knifehead is the first kaiju shown in the movie and seemingly one of the most popular for the movie along with Otochi.


MekaG your pics are nice. I especially like the Knifehead vs. Goji 64.

Razieon I like your pics also of the new Jaeger.

I wasn't really looking forward to Scunner, but I like the new Knifehead/Tresspasser base figure so much I'm kind of excited to have all three.

I wish the Scunner they're making would be this one: http://www.pacificrim-movie.net/media/s ... ncept2.jpg

An early design with the only difference being a long tail. But I know it had a sorry short tail in the movie, and so will the figure. :(

There's still hope for his size though. Scunner was massive, towers over Knifehead. I expect him to be utterly mammoth.

I'm just praying that they make a Tacit Ronin figure at some point.

They are! They confirmed on Twitter they'll be making prologue Jaegers, and reissuing Striker Eureka and Crimson Typhoon.

I like that Scunner more than I do his look in the movie. (I suppose its just the clarity).
Also I need to get one of those Cherno Alphas.

Well I got around to opening Knifehead, Trespasser and Coyote Tango. They're pretty good, except for one issue with Knifehead and Coyote. Trespasser is FLAWLESS though, LOVE him.

One of Coyote's cannons is a bit warped. The very end of the cannon kinda points upwards. Making it uneven with the other.

The main issue with Knifehead MIGHT be that one of his legs could be longer than the other. I'm not 100% true if it is though. At some angles it is, others it's not.

Aside from those issues, everything is good. Knifehead's top jaw comes off a bit too easily, I assume it's for the tongue gimmick? So I may just glue that in place so it doesn't pop off anymore.

I'd give Trespasser an A+ and the other two Bs. Don't have Cherno yet, not till the 31st.

I'm really crossing my fingers for Raiju. He was one of the Kaiju I thought didn't get enough screen time.

Well, the last time he was brought up to NECA, they didn't out right dismiss him.
