EXCLUSIVE: First Look at PACIFIC RIM UPRISING Series 2 Action Figures

It’s time to be a stone-cold Jaeger meister again. Pacific Rim toys have always been hot sellers, as we saw when previous license-holder NECA kept cranking out new figures long after the movie had left theaters. Diamond Select Toys, who are making the figures for the sequel, are clearly quite confident as well, as they’re already announcing a second series of Jaegers to cancel the apocalyptic lack of giant robot figures currently.

Standing around 7 inches tall, which will allow them to play pretty well with your existing toys from the prior film, this line-up includes Guardian Bravo (the red and white one), Obsidian Fury (chainsaw arms) and Titan Redeemer (Go Go Yubari from Kill Bill, but as a male robot). No Kaiju have been announced yet, but early clips from Pacific Rim: Uprising make it look as though the Jaegers may be bigger threats to each other this time around.

With the rise of the Titanfall game franchise since the last movie came out, fan affinity for people in cool robotic suits controlling even cooler monstrous metal men ought to be at an all-time high. You probably won’t ever own a real-scale Jaeger, since drift technology hasn’t even been invented yet, but with these figures, you can pretend you’re controlling them, as you trash the objects on your desk, and activate the power of procrastination.

Is it just us, or does Titan Redeemer look a bit like the Iron Giant if he in fact were a gun?

Series 1, featuring Gipsy Avenger, Saber Athena, and Bracer Phoenix come out in spring; series 2 follows in the summer, with specialty outlets like comic shops getting extra bonus accessories packed in. Will you be hitting up toy stores next year to grab your own anti-apocalypse army at $24.99 each (or $14.99 for accesory-less versions)? Tell us in comments below.
