The on-again, off-again sci-fi sequel Pacific Rim 2 is back from the depths. Deadline reports Legendary Pictures has hired Steven S. DeKnight to direct the film, which will be produced by the first film’s director, Guillermo del Toro.
Now if we can just scale it, we’ll be able to kick those Kaiju’s asses.
It’s a damn good job Pacific Rim’s Gipsy Danger is such a cool robot, otherwise getting like, the billionth Gispy Danger figure in NECA’s sublime toy line based on the movie would be very annoying at this point. I mean, it still is a little annoying, but when Gipsy can look this great, it’s easy to forgive that.
During Pacific Rim’s opening montage, protagonist Raleigh Beckett briefly laments that Humanity has turned their fear of the monstrous Kaiju into the cute toys seen above. But now you can own these adorable little Vinyl figures, so honestly who cares what a fictional character thinks of them? Gimme Gimme Gimme.
We’ve known for a while that Striker Eureka would be NECA’s next plus sized Pacific Rim toy — but now that the figure is hitting shelves next week, the company have released more pictures of the toy, and it’s looking rather lovely indeed.
Ah, Giant Robots. Who doesn't love giant mechanical creations stomping around and kicking butt? Over the years there have been many badass robots and mechs that have wormed their way into our hearts, but some are just especially great. So here are our picks for the 10 greatest giant robots, ranked.
Late last month we got a new teaser for even more Pacfic Rim toys, including a huge new version of Otachi, the Kaiju that tears up a storm in Hong Kong during the movie's main setpiece - and now NECA have unveiled a bunch of new pictures of the figure, complete with the most adorable little Kaiju baby.
Okay, so I was wrong. Turns out that NECA will be making even more Pacific Rim Jaeger figures to complete your collection - a new poster released by the company over the holidays has given us our first look at two more Jaegers that really round out the complete collection of on-screen mechs in figure form.
Whelp. NECA's range of plus-sized Pacific Rim Jaegers - which recently launched a gorgeous Cherno Alpha - continues to endanger my wallet with the reveal of the next in line already. Behold, giant Striker Eureka!
Oh. My. God. Just look at this Russian Beauty. Neca's Pacific Rim line continues to delight Jaeger lovers like me with a new, 18-inch tall rendition of Cherno Alpha (aka secret best Jaeger of the movie). It's... it's wonderful.
Since I saw Pacific Rim, I've endeavoured to keep up with NECA's excellent series of PR Figures as they churn out Jaeger after glorious Jaeger for my shelf. It looks like that journey will come to an end (at least until Pacific Rim 2!) next year with the release of Romeo Blue and a heavily damaged Gipsy Danger.
There was a lot to love about Pacific Rim, especially its amazing props and world design. So diehard fans, prepare to rip your wallets right open - The Prop Store are running a massive auction of props and costumes from the movie, featuring everything from Kaiju goop to... Hannibal Chau's Desk!?
NECA's Pacific Rim line of action figures has gone from strength to strength since it launched last year - and it's about to get even better with this beautiful new Kaiju figure set to terrorise your toy shelf.
We tend to think of science fiction and fantasy as being like mystery novels — the story is over when you solve the case. So we obsess over questions that have no answers. But here are 10 questions that are better unanswered, either because the possibilities are fascinating or because the answers would be terrible.
LEGO artist Jason Corlett, spent 70 hours and 5,000 bricks to build Cherno Alpha, an almost 3-ft tall massive Lego jaeger from Pacific Rim.
