    Looks like a $20 glue it together kit to me.

    I was hoping he was going to be a little more gold...
    Other than that, I'll probably pick it up.

    Cherno looks promising.

    But then again, so did Stiker.

    Cherno looks good! Upper body looks very movie accurate. The hips defeat some of the overall effect. I assume they diid that for balance but if they're going to change things I'd rather see bigger boots for balance than something like the hips. narrow hips are part of what gave the design a good effect.

    Overall, for <$20 bucks it's not bad. A good appetizer while we wait for someone to do a proper version.

    They should do 18 inch versions of the other 3 jaegers. All would have spotlights on their heads. Striker's chest lights, Crimson's eye, and Cherno's chest or turbines could all light up.

    I won't be buying it. I'm selling off all my neca PR stuff except for 18" gipsy and I'll be getting 18" knifehead. Hopefully they make more in that scale.

    Coyote is the only one that looks like it won't break. I will be watching this one. May be the only one I consider buying, that is, if it turns out to be a durable quality toy.

    Damn Coyote does look good. Maybe I'll just buy him, since he'll never see 18" even if that line continues with other jaegers.

    Looks good.

    I hope we get more 18 inch Jaegers, too.

    No one has said anything negative yet so...

    the elbows look like they have roughly a 30 degree range of movement. Then again all it does in the film is stand there right?

    But yeah the detail on this looks incredible.

    I like it. It looks even better than I expected. I was Cherno was a little different in the hips, but I can't complain too much. Not bad NECA. Not bad at all.

    Cherno and Coyote look pretty good there. Agreed on 'cautiously optimistic' status.

    In the meantime, my wave 1 guys are still pretty cool.
