We reviewed the Pacific Rim Trespasser figure from NECA a few days ago now here is the rest of series 3.
First up Knifehead, he was released as part of series 1 but he was out of proportion with the other figures so NECA decided to release him again in a larger battle damaged version. As we mentioned in the Trespasser review he and Knifehead are based on the same design, the lower part, and arms of Knifehead is the same except for different paint scheme. Where the major diffence is with the main part of the body and head, the body is similar but they added a section to the neck and shoulder area, the neck has a longer look. The back plate is similar to the series 1 figure and not as pronounced as Trespasser's is. Also obviously is his head is different. Knifehead stands as the tallest kaiju almost seeming to big, not that we are complaining, he has a very good paint job including his blue blood splatter if there is an issue it is with articulation of the head and neck. Most of the figure is the same as Trespasser and better then the series 1 version except the neck seems stiff and kind of hard to move as the jaw seems to be articulated like the previous version but you can actually move it to a different position. Overall all another great figure.
Now on to the Jaegers Coyote Tango and Chreno Alpha, both are similar to the previous Jaegers, they have great detail and have a sort of worn look like they have been through battles before, I felt the first Gipsy Danger and Striker Eureka were to clean you can say. Coyote Tango does seem to stand a little odd giving him a top heavy look, his legs are also stiff and hard to pose. Cherno Alpha is the brute of the bunch and it shows the biggest gripe with him is his head seems slightly off from his body it is not a big deal. One thing I did notice that is interesting is his fist they open and they extend out a nice little touch. Both make fine additions to the assortment. Overall this is a great series I truly hope they continue it.
Trespasser one of the many kaiju of Pacific Rim and one of the first to appear in the film, attacking San Francisco as well as other cities. Now it is an awesome figure Trespasser is bigger then the two previous kaiju released by NECA like Leatherback released in wave 2 Trespasser has quite a few points of articulation and plenty of detail.
Trespasser is very similar to Knifehead in style with two large arms and two smaller arms but both are articulated unlike wave 1 Knifehead in which the smaller ones were not (wave 3 Knifehead is different which we review in the near future), they also share a similar color scheme.
The figure looks great but there is one thing that I was not crazy about which was the tail that is curved, due to the packaging, and is hard to move to a different position. The figure has a solid feel and is easy to pose overall joints are all firm but not to hard to adjust into different poses.
The paint job on it is very good with one exception there are a few mistakes on one side of the figure's abdomen it is not horrible but it is slightly noticeable.
Overall it is an great figure slightly better then Leatherback in my opinion, which is a great figure as well. This figure is part of wave 3 which includes Battle Damaged Knifehead, Cherno Alpha, and Coyote Tango, although the kaiju are definitely my favorites.
