Are you stoked for Pacific Rim? Well, after kicking off a set of video footages and three blueprints, now a fourth blueprint for the film’s giant robots, called Jaegers has emerged.
Each Jaeger design have specifically debuted at the countries they come from in the story. This one offering a look at the ‘Striker Eureka’ Jaeger and is settled at the ‘Sydney Shatterdome,’ Australia. it’s described as ‘the most advanced battle machine ever assembled: the biggest, fastest and strongest Jaeger ever to walk the earth.’
Visionary director Guillermo del Toro wrote on his fan site that:
The very first engines used to create the ‘muscle strands’ on the Jaeger limbs were Husqvarna engines and the first assembly line was an amalgam between Germany and US. Those were the MARK I.
Besides the ‘Anti-Kaiju missile chest launcher’, then the ‘brass knuckles’ on the robot’s fingers, and the retractable ‘sting blades’ on the arms, at the bottom of the blueprint is a launch date: November 2, 2019.
Check out the blueprint below.
Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., and Diego Klattenhoff and is set to be released in theaters July 12th, 2013.
Here’s the synopsis:
From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure Pacific Rim.
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume 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 (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko 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.
