Pacific Rim fans rejoice! We have the official glamour shots from Bandai of the newest figures that were just debuted at NYCC including 3 Jaegers and a new Kaiju! These are in addition to the 4 previously shown figures from earlier in the year.

RAIJIN – ( KAIJU)

 

 

Theres not much in the way of official details for the Kaiju addition to the Pacific Rim Uprising lines but its likely that Raijin will stand around the same height as the previous characters in the Robot Spirits line of 15.5cm and a rough RRP of £24.99-£35.99 with pre orders opening soon here in the UK.

Raijin looks like a Kaiju from the original film on some serious steroids and we cannot wait to see it go toe-to-toe with the new Jaegers. Here’s hoping we’ll see more Kaiju released as adversaries for all the new Jaegers to balance the playing field.

Check out what star of the film John Boyega has to say on the Kaiju threat this time courtesy of the exclusive first look over on Entertainment Weekly :

“The Kaiju have found a new way,” Boyega says. “They are way more intelligent than we thought they were. The monsters you saw in the first movie were the test run, to see how the planet would hold up. The breach we thought was closed is not their only way into our world. Their plans are more specific. Jake leads the team in trying to build up a new defense against that.”
