SDCC 2017: Check Out The New Jaegers Featured In PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING

Hey gang! The viral site (GoJaeger.com) for PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING has unveiled five new Jaegers and their blue prints that will be introduced in the upcoming sequel.

GIPSY AVENGER – Gipsy Avenger honors the heroic legacy of her namesake as the flagship leader of the Mark VI fleet. More than just a Jaeger, she is a symbol of hope to millions.

BRACER PHOENIX – A Mark V brute that can still run with the VI’s, Bracer Phoenix 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 is the fastest in the fleet, wielding twin blades in hyper-acrobatic combat.

TITAN REDEEMER – Built for brute force and armed with a seismic morningstar, Titan Redeemer is the walking wrecking ball of the new fleet.

GUARDIAN BRAVO – Designed for combat at range, Guardian Bravo wields the Elec-16 Arc Whip: a proto-metallic successor to the chainsword, and brings a new sophistication to the chainsword’s whiplash move.

The upcoming sci-fi sequel set to release in theaters on February 28, 2018. The Legendary Pictures production is being directed by Steven S. DeKnight and stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, Wesley Wong, Lily Ji, Chen Zitong, Lan Yingying, Qian Yongchen, and Zhang Jin, with cameos by Xiao Yang and Kim Jeong-Hoon.

Synopsis:

It’s been ten years since The Battle of the Breach and the oceans are still, but restless. Vindicated by the victory at the Breach, the Jaeger program has evolved into the most powerful global defense force in human history. The PPDC now calls upon the best and brightest to rise up and become the next generation of heroes. When the Kaiju threat returns, we will be ready.

    I have looked everywhere for as much information about this movie as possible and I have found quite a lot, but this proves a theory I have had in my head for as far back as 2014. Any fan of the movie knows, The Breach was obliterated as well as the Kaiju world thanks to Gypsy Danger. So clearly the threat in this movie can not be the same monsters. But if someone where to bring them back they could be. It was pointed that the Kaiju share a Hive Mind due to them being clones, so what one brain knows, they all know. Meaning, every Kaiju knows how to create more of itself. And in the neurological drift used in the Jaegers, the two minds connected mold into one. they both see into each others thoughts. Now the trailer is very unclear about this and I think I know why, but where do Dr. Hermann and Dr. Newt both went into a Kaiju brain. They know how to create the Kaiju. Now if you watch the trailer again you will see the humans on the road shooting these silver and blue eyed creatures. They appear to me made of metal or something like it. At the end of the trailer when the giant Kaiju is introduced, if you look closely you can see the same silver and blue creatures filling in its spaces, almost building it into the giant beast it is. Could Newt and Hermann be behind that? Could it be the strange people in the white outfits that appear in front of a VTOL aircraft emblazoned with a symbol that is no the Pan Pacific Defense Corps? Could those things be on the same side of the battle as the Jaeger Gypsy Avenger is fighting, the one we can not see the blueprints for? I don’t know, but I will know February 23rd 2018.

    Also, side note, look back to the blueprints of the old Jaegers. They show the pilots in the head, these do not. In fact, the heads look much smaller than those on the old Jaegers. Could they be remotely piloted with the actual human pilots in a simulation chamber safely away from the battle? That would take away the basic human fear of death if the pilots were not in the Jaeger itself. The pilots would be more willing to make possibly riskier moves to guarantee success.

    Upon further investigation and scale measurements, the heads are NOT smaller on the new Jaegers, in fact they are much larger overall, but smaller in comparison to the rest of the Jaeger body. A human would easily fit inside the new Jaegers head but I still like the idea of remotely piloted Jaegers
