To hell with how they're piloted, I'm sold on their badassery 10 fold. I'll just headcanon that they all can be piloted by one person, like Coyote Tango (the Japanese Jaeger).



*meditates to make it so*

I think the mental stress when piloting those massive machines is too much for one pilot to handle, so, they need 2 people. On the downside, the pilots must be mentally and physically in-sync.

I agree with this, why we have to bother arguing about how the Jaegers are piloted now (with very little info)? It’s not worth it when we’ll get the clear answer in the movie. Let's save that argument/debate after we actually seen PR.

Right now, all I care is the battle between giant robots and enormous monsters. The “rocket punch” in the trailer doesn’t look too hot. I hope it’ll have more “Impacto!” in the movie . They might as well make a weapon like Alteisen’s pile bunker. That would be awesome.

The first trailer looks incredible. Still not hot for the 3D but everything else, damn! I will try my best to see that in IMAX.

Favourite part of the trailer for me was the mecha knuckle cracking.

My God! The trailer was awesome! This must be how a live action Evagelion feels like.

^Indeed ^_^.

Still, I personally glad that Pacific Rim is the first movie from “mecha (with pilot)” genre that got made by Hollywood. Counting out Transformers and real-robot subgenre, “giant (piloted) robot vs. monsters” is the plot of almost every mecha animes at its most basic. The unfamiliar audience need this kind of introduction before delving further into more complex mecha outings like Evangelion, Gundams, Patlabor, Macross, etc (assuming Hollywood wants to make live-action outta them).

Decent trailer. Beyond the special effects, there was nothing too amazing (and honestly it just looks like a big budget Scify channel movie right now) in this seemingly very obvious genre picture, but I am intrigued by the monsters (Do they have sentience? Are they actually plotting something?) and the quote "to fight monsters, we created monsters". If nothing else, this'll be a great film to see in IMAX...

The GLaDOS voice wasn't really the icing on the cake for me, it just seemed like overkill. The film is already a complete nerdgasm, so adding GLaDOS to mix was actually distracting for me, especially considering they could have hired an actual human for the job.

The trailer looks awesome as hell! But the rocket punch looks more like Grungust series' Boosted Knuckle ^^

Coyote Tango, Striker Eureka, and Gipsy Danger are my favorites. Cherno Alpha's big head and Crimson Typhoon's wonk arm set up are turn offs for me.


If Crimson Typhoon had both left and right placements of its claw/cannon arm, it'd be in my favorites.

Man this is looking fantastic. Would of liked to see more of the robot attacks outside of just a rocket punch, but heck more surprises for the actual film.

GUNS? They don't need them, anime has shown us that fist, sword, drill, and hammer are far superior to guns.

After watching the trailer I am very hyped.
