Five Giant Robots from Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim" Revealed

Posted: December 2nd, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Five Giant Robots from Guillermo Del ToroSubmit Comment
Warner Bros recently unveiled the first blueprint of one of the giant robots that will appear in Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming "Pacific Rim" sci-fi film. And today, we have the blueprints for all five robots, including America's Gipsy Danger, Russia's Cherno Alpha, Japan's Coyote Tango, China's Crimson Typhoon, and Australia's Striker Eureka. Check everything out below.

Plot: Legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea and begin a war that 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 (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.

Aussies got the most kickass one. Russian looks like Cthulhu and Terminator made sweet-sweet love (not soorpraizingly, iv yu asg mee).

Looks pretty great. Been waiting for something like this since I was 7 or smth. - NG Evangelion kicked all kinds of ass, plus there was this other series... can't remember which one.

Here's to hope that monsters looks equally good, not like some f*cking supersized scorpion-hornet bastards.

The Matrix Revolutions, mew, redundant, just the apparition of the Deus Ex Machina was cool to watch, nothing else, but I have to agree with you, lads.

By the way Kurskij which other series, mecha series? or another anime?

There are Gundam, inspired by the Heinlein novel Starship Troopers, there is Mazinger, Raxhephon, Nadesico, Eureka Seven, Gasaraki, Escaflowne, f*cking Patlabor, holy motors sh*t Macross, there are a bunch more out there.
Kurskij writes:

Gudnam I believe. The old one from the 80's.

Mecha series - I usuallly can't stand anime and have little idea about all the genres and subgenres within it (I hear there's a sh*tload of them).

I like Ghibli's movies because they don't have the usual anime retardation in them, Evangelion was pretty cool as I remember. Really dig Ghost in the Shell franchise - from purely cinematic standpoint it's very well made and realised.

Yeah, man, GITS 1 and 2 are such visual marvels on their own damn right.

The f*cking scene of the final battle since the beginning when the cyborg bitch arrives until the tremendous end of it, is one of those superb moments.

That's how you tackle action in a very artistic way.
sedibus writes:

I mean, animation kills every visual flare you can try to pursuit in any way on Live-Action film, no matter how much money or CGI you can drop to the frigging salad, chap.

I guess only f*cking Tarkovsky did it. Damn!
Kurskij writes:
on December 2nd, 2012 at 11:08:48 AM

Ghost in the shell animation had great sense of movement if I remember right. It had little motion blur characteristic to your average animation film. And yeah, staging of action sequences, silent moments - it had some terrific looking shots.

Hwood has been robbing this franchise for ideas for almost two decades now.

That Screenplay Black List my ass, I heard somewhere that they have scripts that will never see the light of day, and they use ideas from those scripts into their films with their own purposes and philosophical and all that Hollywood industrial sh*t they put into any cool work of any kind.

sedibus writes:

From the hit anime movie Ghost in the Shell from 1996, the climatic scene of the tank vs Major Motoko Kusanagi.

Not watching this (onmaphone now), but I guess it's the one in the sewers? Matrix hall gunfight anyone?..

Balls to the wall action, terrific.

As for unproduced screenplays - its a know practice to buy screenplays with a specific purpose NOT to produce them. To kill the competition. Often those are mined for ideas for years - to include in other movies. For instance, there's reportedly a couple of Shane Black screenplays that lay on the shelf for more than a decade now. They cost about $1,5 mil. Each back in the day.

There are whole movies that cannot be released even though they were partially or fully finished years ago. Bruce Willis has two, one of which was 'accidentally' destroyed when film was exposed - insurance covered it back in the 90s. There is 'black water transit' - Karl Urban vehicle by Tony Kaye that lays on the shelf because producers are in and out of courtrooms for 4 years.

These robots are absolutely f*cking awesome!

And you people, please they look NOTHING like Neon Genesis Evangelion. Christ. People always drag that anime into a discussion because it's the only one they've seen because it's infamously f*cked up. It's like Cannibal Holocaust of mainstream anime.

"yeah the robots have a similar look."

You're insane. They look nothing like the mecha from NGE. Nothing. Take another look.

They look far more like TRANSFORMERS, if Bay's had been less insectile, so they're really a more organic version of the G1 characters.

@Mudders: Spot on, bro. You saw what no one else saw. First one looks just like Jazz, second like Shockwave with some Omega Supreme and the third, I think, Megatron, with some G1 Brawl.

The one with the Mad Hatter head looks like something I saw somewhere, maybe it was NGE, a monster, really, but not a robot.

And ghost in the Shell. Another one people mention because they haven't seen much anime. Hell throw Metropolis out there. That's an impressing anime, truly, even Cameron said it was mind-blowing and he's not one to give compliments lightly.

Finally, Big-O. Now there a weird little anime. A lot like the old batman cartoon, but cooler. And the little female android Robin. Great music too.

Oh, and yes Ghibli is the Disney of the East, even better really because every film is unique and the animation clean and clear and nearly perfect. Great films there, if you can stand the esoteric material.

As for this movie, I think the robots look awesome, and it's about time we got a live-action NGE. I still recall way back when some years ago Newtype was claiming Hollywood was working on an the NGE film, and then it never materialized. Guess they finally decided to make a more American film instead.

Looks good.

Oh, and if you haven't seen Cowboy Bebop, you should. Best anime ever. Tops. Unsurpassed, and that includes all the little gay sh*t like Bleach and Naruto. It's like 2D cartoon live-action, if that makes any sense. Very serious and fun and just exemplary anime all the way through.

how dare you call naruto gay, every chick on that show has huge boobs and the fight scenes between all the filler are unparalleled. The filler is gay tho, very gay, so you are partially correct. bleach has its moments but can be pretty gay, if you are interested in some other good shows check out Soul Eater, Karas: 1&2, and since we're talking about robots Gurren Lagann

minkowski writes:
on December 2nd, 2012 at 6:01:18 PM

I've been watching anime for nearly ten years, since an ex introduced me. I doubt I qualify for noob status, even though I haven't see Redline. I have seen the new Appleseed movies, which I thought were fantastic looking but weak and dry in storyline. I do believe I saw Karas 1. Another decent anime film is Doomed Megaopolis.

Also, Graveyard of the Fireflies and of course, Vampire Hunter D, Triggun, Blue Gender (very f*cked up, especially the ending which tried to outshock NGE) and Blood.

GreenLensman writes:
on December 2nd, 2012 at 6:16:34 PM

i saw my first anime when i was about 5 and I'll never forget how bad ass it was "The Lensman" lol, nice choices there mink im impressed but not surprised
minkowski writes:
on December 2nd, 2012 at 6:31:15 PM

Thanks. Never saw Lensman. When I was a child, way back in the 80s, I was watching Robotech, which I thought was VERY mature, even now, Voltron, which was pretty awesome but it did get old seeing him slice up the space monster on cue ever 25 minutes into the show, and Mazinger/Tranzor Z which was the first robot anything I ever saw, and though it looks like sh*t today, being from 1972, I think, back then all I could think was I wanted a robot that fired tit missiles.

Others I saw include Macross and Patlabor, the latter of which to me is one of the weaker and more procedural animes.

And I can still recall going to Children's Palace and doing a bug-eyed what the f*ck at all the Japanese import robot models like Mospeada.

Thinking back it's like a dream, all those awesome DIY anime robot models, some like two feet high, complete with huge guns and the ability to turn into a motorcycle.

I also had a major crush on Rainbow Sprite, but she wasn't anime, which is too bad considering how often the manga babes get down with green tentacled monsters.

i still consider myself a noob i was born in 88 but if you wanna see some crazy blood and just sh*t that would make a teenager want to suck his own d*ck try out genocyber, voilence jack, Gantz, apocalypse of devilman, just to name a few, hell just youtube it
minkowski writes:
on December 2nd, 2012 at 7:10:20 PM

Yeah Ive heard of Gantz and Genocyber, they both depict from what I can recall extremely graphic violence. The others I've never seen. From what I recall, there was some controversy with Genocyber in that is depicted children getting brutally murdered, which shocked even the less conservative Japanese. I think some of that carried over into a few Animatrix short films, the one that showed the future war with the machines.

Other Anime's I've seen: Inuyasha, Sailormoon (both of which I was forced to watch by the ex) Jin Roh, Millennium Actress, Elfen Lied, Witch Hunter, Wolf's Rain, from the same people who did Bebop but not nearly as good, Escaflowne, Tenchi, which is kind of funny in a sophmoric way, Argentasoma, Ninja Scroll, FLCL, Gunslinger Girl, which was kind of interesting I guess, the GITS TV series, which I thought was a borderline travesty, Hellsing, Fruits Basket, Chobits (don't f*cking ask) Full Metal Panic, not to be confused with Full Metal Alchemist, RahXephon, 5 Centimeters Per Second, Voices of a Distant Star, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, plus all the Dragonball, and the Korean anime Wonderful Days.

Some others I can barely recall too.

Lots of sh*t.

Another great list mink, I highly recommend Outlaw Star, Samurai Champloo, Desert Punk for some more known animes..Black Cat, Death Note, hell even Sgt. Frog was good fun, but what do I know, I'm an alcoholic...Animecrazy.net is where I go when I need my fix.

on December 2nd, 2012 at 7:43:15 PM

lol, I've heard of and seen some of all of those, except Sgt Frog and Desert Punk.

Hell, I even remember Fist of the North Star.


Yeah, the thing is, when I was asked years ago if I wanted to watch anime, I said no, I'm not watching cartoons. I'm not a kid anymore, and she said, they're not cartoons, and I said, well, they LOOK like cartoons, and she said watch or you don't get laid, so I watched.

Can't recall what we watched first. It was Adult Swim, I think or whatever AS was before it was AS, back when they did anime a lot, even unedited anime, but it might have been Cowboy Bebop, or FLCL, but that was it, and I just kind of got into it and said f*ck it to the whole thing about being a cartoon or not, because a lot of anime is way more adult than even some adult American movies.

Anyway, the thing is, I had seen anime as kid, but I didn't know it. sh*t like Robotech, which was just way, way out there for me at the time.

Good memories.

Hey, guys, you should take a look at Legend of Crystania, Record of Loddos War, specially the OVA's, Mardock Scramble, Ninja Resurrection, Jin-Roh, Towa No Quon, Amon Saga, Locke the Superman, Akira, Memories, Neo Tokyo, Spriggan, Tekkaman Blade, Cyborg 009, Twilight of the c*ckroaches.

Kurskij, what I meant about black listed scripts, is about those that aren't even mentioned in any way, nor being paid.

I mean, Hollywood is an industry run by modern day fascist from the C.I.A.

They learned they lesson good from the Nazis, they do all their sh*t underground.

Just go watch f*cking ARGO.

So, now I see, the f*cking Trial. You can go all the way down to Full Metal Alchemist.

Or Devilman, Astroboy, Ninja Scroll, Saint Seiya, Dragon Ball, Bubblegum Crisis, ennit?

Rayheart, Slayers, Zenki, Taro the Dragonboy, f*cking Berserk, Battle Angel, Golgo 13, Darkstalkers OVA's, Pale Cocoon, Steamboy.

From Ghibli I have special appreciation for Porco Rosso, Nausica, LaPuta, Chihiro, but for me the very best of the all is Mononoke Hime, of course not to mention Grave of the Fireflies, but that's another game.

Makoto Shinkai stuff is good. Also all the movies by the late Satoshi Kon, specially Paprika, mean crazy bastard.

Grave of the Fireflies isn't Ghibli, sedibus, it's Toho IIRC, and it just seems like you're throwing sh*t out there to make it look like you know something about anime.

Also, 75 to 80% of the sh*t you mentioned I've seen, especially Memories, which IIRC was a collection of three short films, none of which were all that great.
sedibus writes:
on December 3rd, 2012 at 1:59:27 PM


Grave of the Fireflies was made by one of Ghibli founders, so indeed is from that studio although it was distributed and produced by that Shinchosha company who hired studio Ghibli to do the animation production work.

It's not my problem you didn't like any of the Memories short, the most special of them was Magnetic Rose, but the three are cool in their own right.

And by the way you saying I'm naming all that anime sh*t list, it's not because I know or pretending to know a lot about Japanese animation, but I did it for the only purpose to put a list of shows and movies for people to take a look at, if possible.

I don't give a sh*t if I know little to a lot to nothing about it.
