Collectible Provides First Look at Terrifying New ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ Kaiju



We’ve thus far seen several images of the new Jaegers from Steven S. DeKnight’s Pacific Rim Uprising, but what about the Kaiju? We’ve your first look today!

As John Boyega teased earlier today, “the monsters you saw in the first movie were the test run, to see how the planet would hold up,” promising that the new monsters are going to be more intelligent and terrifying than the ones we met back in 2013.

An upcoming Bandai Japan collectible up for pre-order from Big Bad Toy Store now gives us a preview of Raijin, named after the god of lightning, thunder and storms in the Shinto religion and in Japanese mythology.

Raijin looks a bit like the Demogorgon from “Stranger Things,” with his head opened up to reveal some true nightmare fuel underneath the surface.

Thanks to reader Chris Ell for the scoop. See more images below.

In the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s film, arriving March 23, 2018

“The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious‘ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.”

Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Jing Tian, Levi Meaden, and Adria Arjona also star.
