Pacific Rim may be almost a year behind us, but we still salivate over new releases from NECA. Despite the fact that the figures often break, fail to stand, or have terrible articulation, even I still pick up the latest pieces.
First up, on the heals of the deluxe (new scale because screw consistency) Knifehead and Trespasser we just got, NECA brings us Scunner - the next kaiju to fall off your shelf in the middle of the night!
Following the success of the recently released deluxe Trespasser and Knifehead v.2 comes the next HUGE and highly requested Kaiju, Scunner!
From the epic Pacific Rim movie, Scunner is the largest of the Category IV Kaiju. Its appearance and behavior are akin to that of a bull. Broad and stocky, the two curved horns jutting out of its head act as battering rams against armored opponents like the Jaegers.
Scunner has four arms that are all poseable, along with a bendable tail and tons of detail and additional articulation.
Is Otachi not highly requested? We have two versions, built in! Wings and no-wings! Do I sound bitter at this point? Pretty sure I am...
Scunner arrives in August.
Next is an 18" Cherno Alpha. Cherno is expected in September.
The second Jaeger to receive the 18? deluxe treatment, the massive mech Cherno Alpha features even more detail than its 7? counterpart. Created directly from the digital files used by ILM in the making of Pacific Rim, and then further detailed by our top sculptors and fabricators, Cherno looks just like it did on screen.
Loaded with detail, realistic weathering, over 20 points of articulation and LED lights in the head to re-create the effects seen in the movie. It even features sliding fists! This figure is massive and can now join the fight to save humanity alongside 18? Gipsy Danger.
Both Scunner and the 18" Cherno can be preordered from BBTS, now. Cherno for $99.99 and Scunner for $24.99.
The latest series three NECA figures are also still available at BBTS and on NECA's eBay store.
