Although that's not something I'm in the market for that does look pretty darn cool.

I found Trespasser and the new Knifehead at Toys'R'Us this week. I knew they were bigger, but seeing them in person still kind of surprised me how big they are. Although I couldn't pull the trigger on either. Trespasser's too much of a short cameo to be of interest to me and I'd really prefer a Knifehead without the bleed detail.

I'm looking at trying to fix my collapsed knee/leg Crimson Typhoon. It looks like if I put a piece of plastic behind the knee it might help keep his height for posing. Now to find that piece of plastic that'll fit and not be unsightly. I've also heard the Future floor polish is good for fixing loose joints on Transformers figures. Think that would work with a non-ball joint Neca material?

I still need to grab me a Leatherback. I wish my local TRU would've picked up the series 2 figures. Now it's going to cost me extra. Hopefully they don't stop with these, and finally give us Otachi and Slattern figures.

I've got to figure Series 5 (seriously where is the news on this already??) has to include the new Gypsy 2.0, Knifehead 2.0 and Otachi. That'd be a hell of a set in my mind. I'd be tempted to buy all three of them.

I also think it'd be really cool if a company like Marmit or something made a vinyl of Knifehead and Gypsy. I'd rather see that any day of the week over a Sideshow statue personally.

ANOTHER GD and Knifehead? They have already done 3+ of each! Please not until they visit Slattern, Otachi, etc

But they still haven't gotten GD or Knifehead right IMO. The battle damaged Knifehead is close but still...we need a non-battle damaged version of that figure to have a proper Knifehead release.

GD, well, we know for a fact we are getting a 2.0 so it's coming whether you like it not.

I really, really want to see an Otachi but Slattern I could care less about. Kind of boring as a kaiju in my opinion.

Just got my first Pacific Rim figure in the mail this week - Trespasser. I LOVE it. The detail is amazing and it has just enough articulation to strike a few poses. THIS is the type of line I've been dreaming of for Godzilla. I'll probably be getting Cherno Alpha, my favorite Jaeger, this week.

Just so everyone knows, Toys R Us has a listing for a new Crimson Typhoon and Striker Eureka to be released on June 25.

I'm contemplating on getting that battle damage Knifehead. I have the series 1 version, but this one seems SO much better. Honestly, I've never been a big robot fan(outside of MEchaGodzilla) so I don't really care for the Jaegers. The Kaiju on the other hand...

I'm thinking of getting Trespasser. What do you guys think of it? Any common issues I should be aware of?

Not that I noticed. He's a cool figure.

My Battle Damaged Gypsy Danger and Leatherback came in yesterday. GD is amazing and even more fun to pose than Cherno Alpha, mainly do to those huge swords of hers. Leatherback... is iffy. It's an amazing mold and rather heavy toy, but do to his design, you can't pull off many poses. I was hoping to do a Kong-style chest beat pose, but the figure is off balance when just one arm is off the ground, let alone both. Still glad I scored the set for a mere $30, though.

Trespasser is the one to get. Go for it. Very impressive in hand.

I'd also recommend getting Cherno Alpha too.

I'm not overly fond of Trespasser but he's a better figure than the Knifehead. Mostly because his head can be moved a lot more.

Amazon has the newly re-issued CT and SE listed for around $25. I'll be buying CT on July 11th for sure. I'm also eyeing the battle damaged Knifehead, but would much rather have a non-damaged one that is properly scaled (unlike the original release). Does anybody know if NECA has been talking about such a thing, I've heard they've been doing such about a new GD release, I imagine with her plasma cannons exposed.

Save $5 each and pick these guys up at TRU for $19.99. The last two TRUs I went to had about a dozen of each - I don't think they'll be hard to find. Picked up a Striker Eureka - I didn't know the blades were separate, so I'll have to glue them in. Mine fall out when I move them.

I imagine FYE may also get them in. I got my Cherno Alpha there for $17.

Yeah, Axehead pisses me off. Why couldn't they do Raiju or Multavore?
