With a hip-hip and a clippity-clop
He’s out lookin’ for a top to chop
So don’t stop to figure out a plan
You can’t reason with a headless man


So, on Wednesday, September 2nd, blackout501st and I grabbed a couple of sacks of toys, and drove around town to do some on-location photography. The end result is these photosets, consisting of a combination of our collections of toys.

This set: A selection of figures from blackout501st‘s collection of Pacific Rim jaegers, including Striker Eureka, Cherno Alpha, Romeo Blue, Crimson Typhoon, and Gipsy Danger.

Photos taken on-location at Ocean Beach.

Comic-Con attendees who always wanted to know how it feels to pilot a Jaeger from the Guillermo del Toro film Pacific Rim will finally get their chance. Legendary Entertainment is hosting the Pacific Rim Jaeger Pilot Oculus Rift Experience at its booth, #3920. Here’s a description of what sounds to be one of the most popular events on the exhibit floor:

We have worked closely with the leading pioneers of virtual reality, Oculus VR, to deliver a new benchmark in Oculus Rift experiences.

Fans will experience what it feels like to pilot a 250-story robot as they step into a fully-realized Jaeger Combat Simulator. Strapping on the Oculus Rift headset, fans will ‘Drift with the Rift’ and experience the beloved universe of Pacific Rim in a whole new way.
