The Pacific Rim Comic Has Just the Right Mix of Tragedy and Giant Robots

Pacific Rim fans will know that setting any piece of tie-in material before the events of the movie usually can only end up one way: with most of its protagonists and their lovely giant robots dead, leaving Humanity’s defenders on the brink in time for the movie. The new Pacific Rim comic knows that too, and uses it… »11/05/15 5:45pm11/05/15 5:45pm


The Theme That Ties All of Guillermo del Toro's Movies Together

Early in Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, protagonist Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) eagerly gives a story she’s written to a publisher. But he sends her away, with the condescending instruction that ladies should really be writing romance stories, not ghost stories. She balks at the critique—not just because he’s a… »10/20/15 3:01pm10/20/15 3:01pm

The Pacific Rim Toy Line Finally Made The Best Jaeger Toy

Sure, there’s been versions of Striker Eureka in NECA’s excellent Pacific Rim line, both big and small. But none have let you do one of the giant robot’s coolest attacks: its anime-inspired salvo of rockets spewing out of its chest. That is, until now, with the most badass Jaeger figure yet. »7/15/15 12:06am7/15/15 12:06am

NECA's Latest Pacific Rim Figure Is Half Blown Up, But Still Beautiful

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. »6/02/15 3:30am6/02/15 3:30am

These Cute Toys From Pacific Rim Are Now Actual Toys You Can Buy

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. »5/22/15 10:30am5/22/15 10:30am

This Awesome Pacific Rim Kaiju Can Carry Your Jaeger Toys To Their Doom

Otachi is basically the Batman of NECA’s Pacific Rim toy line at this point. The Kaiju beastie ranks up there with main star Gipsy Danger for variant toys, but only one comes with a feature for it to grab other mech toys and carry them up to their rapid-descent death. That’s pretty damn cool. »5/19/15 1:20pm5/19/15 1:20pm

Wait, Now You'll Be Able To Own Every Pacific Rim Jaeger As A Toy

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. »12/27/14 11:14am12/27/14 11:14am

Stop Hating Original Science Fiction Movies Just For Having Tropes!

It never fails lately. We actually get a movie that's a new story, instead of a rehash or continuation of a venerable tale. And people immediately start piling on, pointing out all the stuff in it that's been done before. But just because something contains story elements we've seen before doesn't mean it can't be new. »12/08/14 3:00pm12/08/14 3:00pm

In January, you'll finally be able to own every Jaeger from Pacific Rim

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. »11/05/14 3:07am11/05/14 3:07am
