Not to be outdone by NECA, who revealed its first Pacific Rim figure earlier today (see it here), Sideshow has provided a sneak peek of its collectible statue based on the film’s Gipsy Danger Jaeger Mech.
Here’s a description of Gipsy Danger from the Pacific Rim Wiki: Despite being one of the older Jaegers, it remains in service with a record of five confirmed Kaiju kills. It is a Mark-3 class, being 79 meters (260 feet) tall and weighing 1,980 tons.

From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure Pacific Rim.
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes–a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)–who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
