Pacific Rim fans rejoice! With the sequel “Uprising” coming to cinemas its high time we got a closer look at the new Jaegers courtesy of Bandai Tamashii Nations at NYCC this year.
GIPSY AVENGER – (ROBOT SPIRITS)
One of the newest additions to the Jaeger scene is the Gipsy Avenger who stands taller then Bracer Phoenix and Titan Redeemer (both 15.5cm ) at 17cm and will retail for a rough RRP of £24.99 and will be up for pre-order here in the UK next week. As this happens we’ll be sure to update you on the places here in the UK where you can get your pre-orders in.
Gipsy Avenger is an upgraded model of Gipsy Danger , the primary Jaeger star of the first film piloted by Charlie Hunnam and retains a lot of the core characteristics including the steel blue paint job and chest core.
Check out what star of the film John Boyega has to say on the new Jaeger courtesy of the exclusive first look over on Entertainment Weekly :
“She is still a two-man Jaeger and has new weapons and technology. The new Gipsy has LCD screens and holographic imagery of what is going outside. Her gravity sling has improved,” he adds. “Pilots are no longer locked into robot by feet. It has a scanning system that makes the drift easier to handle. Gipsy Avenger is strongest and hardest to operate.”
