    These were on my list, but Neptune beat me to them. He is currently re-texturing and decompiling them in Pepakura. He plans to follow with the Kaiju after these little babies are done. They will build to 36" tall. Jeager-2.jpg Jeager-2.jpg Jeager-1.jpg

    Not watched the movie yet. But these look good. Would be interesting to see how they compare to paperreplica's optimus Prime.

    I enjoyed the movie. Though I came away confused as to just how much I liked it? Still the mechs were awesome so this is welcome news!

    Taken as what it was, the movie was adequate, and enjoyable. I Liked it, though felt it was perhaps a little lacking in character depth and execution, in acting terms.
    However, I have to confess: the Jaegers interested me greatly, and I was quick to hope that models of them would appear, preferably in paper.

    I'm glad they have appeared, though that is itself a mixed blessing, because I find it next to impossible to access the models Neptune offers, because of the cloud-storage site he employs, despite my having jumped through the hoops and become a member of said site, and Logging-in, etc.

    Still, I hope to have at least one of Neptune's Jaeger-Mech models one day.

    Kind and Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

    Wow- I found it completely fun. Good writing, good concept, good execution. True it is no Citizen Kane, but it is not Robot Jocks either.

    I actually saw Robot Jocks on the big screen...as a reviewer said,"Really cool robot battles, really dumb story, really cool robot battles...."

    Those bots were designed by Ron Cobb

    Making some of these for a costume is not a bad idea at all. They would be GREAT for SCI-FI conventions or Halloween parties!

    I really enjoyed the movie. It reminded me of the old Godzilla movies from the 70's.

    Rhaven,

    You'd have to have a wasp waist to wear it (the thought of a 350-400lb guy in a jager costume scares me)...
