Here's another piece of awesomeness from the viral campaign behind Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim! It's the blueprint for the badass Kaiju-Fighting Giant Robot known as a Jaeger. This particular model is called the Gipsy Danger. These are the weapons that will be used to fight off the giant monsters who threaten to invade and destroy the world.
The diagram comes from the Pan Pacific Defense Corps! So for those of you looking to build your own, this shows you everything you need to know! The trailer will be released next month, and you'll get your first look at these massive robots in action!
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea and begin a war that would takes millions of lives and consumes humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
The movie stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day. It's set to be released in 3D on July 12th, 2013.
