Release – December 2016
From one of my favorite kaiju movies Pacific Rim comes the 1/350th scale plastic model kits of the jaeger Gypsy Danger! The massive appearance of the Jaeger has been converted into a plastic model kit using 3DCG data from the film for a faithful, detailed rendition of the original that includes the inner frame of the armor for fans to build for themselves. The kit is separated by color and uses snap-kit parts (like a Gundam model) for easy assembly, with decals included to help recreate the look of the jaeger from the film. The finished model stands at around 9 inches when fuly assembled which makes it larger then the standard NECA versions of the figures. The Plasma Cannon and Chain Sword are both included as parts for the model, and the kit also comes with an LED lighting unit to light-up the turbine on the Jaeger’s chest.
From what I can tell it sounds like it is a pretty sweet little model kit for you guys that like to have a little more satisfaction in your toys. Though with most kits you will have to add some added details to really make it pop like in the movie, but this does seem like it would be pretty cool even without the added effort.
