I still wish Tamashii made the Jaegers slightly smaller and released the Kaiju as MonsterArts...

My Gypsy Avenger finally arrived. The articulation on this guy is amazing! Super happy with him, really can't complain at $20.

I just discovered that Robot Spirits Guardian Bravo is really inconsistent with the color scheme, I know all robot Spirits Jaegers lack on panel lining but this bothers me :/ look:

Calm down, they were just announced. And if Bluefin doesn't carry them, you import them. NBD.

Shrikethorn is a Bandai Collector Shop item - might be difficult to import...

Is it just me, or does the DST Hakuja and Bandai Hakuja look pretty darn similar? :eh:

The BANDAI Sofvi Spirits Hakuja looks way less detailed and too much on the small side compared to the other figure(s), judging from the pics from that event where the prototype was shown. I hope they scale him up a bit before its' eventual realease.

Also I hope they'll come around doing the

There’s no reason to scale up Hakuja, he was that small in the movie.

Even though he did seem a little bigger in the movie.

If that's actually official I apologize for accusing Tamashii of incorrect scale. However, he definitely DID look much bigger in the movie... WTF... :shock:

Exactly. In comparision to Raijin (who I already have on shelf, and he looks skreeonking awesome) and Shrikethorn, he looks, for the lack of better words, cheap. The DS one is much more impressive, in my opinion; gonna go with him.

Generally speaking, I think DS have the upper hand over Bandai, when comes to PR:U figures. Basically the only aspect, where Bandai wins, is the articulation, and I am more of a "shelf presence guy", than a sucker for extensive articulation, so the decision, whose jaegers I'm gonna get, was quite easy to make.

If Bandai Japan makes all of the sequel Kaiju into figures could Kaiju from the original PR be made into figures? I'm still salty about no Raiju and Onibaba figures.

We have a Sofvi Spirits Otachi coming apparently. I think it'll be a while before we see the likes of Raiju and Onibaba, sadly.

A Raiju would be my dream figure as he's my favorite kaiju from the film

I love Pacific Rim kaiju, but they really need to step up their game to get me to buy them. Better paint, better articulation, lower price, something.
