Pacific Rim

Yahoo has released some new images of some of the action figures from Pacific Rim Uprising, giving us our first look at some of the new Jaegars in the sequel.

The three Jaegars depicted are named Gipsy Avenger (John Boyega’s Jaegar), Bracer Phoenix and Saber Athena. You can check them out in the gallery below.

Here are the descriptions of the three models (via GoJaeger):

Gipsy Avenger: “The flagship leader of the Mark VI fleet. More than just a Jaeger she is a symbol of hope to millions.”

Bracer Phoenix: An older model that “can still run with the VIs.” “Shoots from the chest, with a centrifugal vortex cannon that is as spectacular as it is deadly.”

Saber Athena: “The sleekest and most elegant Jaeger ever created, Saber Athena. The fastest in the fleet, wielding twin blades in hyber-acrobatic combat.”

Standing at 7-inches tall, the figures from Diamond Select Toys will be on display at New York Comic Con this week, where the first trailer for the film will also be shown.

Directed by Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel’s Daredevil, Spartacus), Pacific Rim: Uprising stars John Boyega, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, Adria Arjona and Nick E. Tarabay.

“The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.”

Pacific Rim Uprising hits theaters on March 23, 2018.
