Geek Gifts: PACIFIC RIM Gipsy Danger Sideshow Collectible Statue

     August 1, 2013


With the prospect of Guillermo del Toro tackling “robots vs. monsters” on a massive scale with Pacific Rim also came the promise of some really cool toys based on del Toro’s meticulous designs.  Those toys are now starting to trickle out, and Sideshow Collectibles has started the pre-order for an intricate statue of the Gipsy Danger jaeger.  At $399.99 the statue isn’t particularly cheap, but it is a very faithfully crafted piece of art, complete with battle scars and overall wear-and-tear, which is a really nice touch.  This is hopefully the first of many Pacific Rim collectibles headed our way over the next couple of years.

    Slight error, it’s ‘Gipsy’ not ‘Gypsy’.

    I like it… except the pose. Not that I’m in the market, but the pose doesn’t look that great and that is a real shame. :o/

    Looks like he’s dancing hahhahaha

      That’s what I was thinking. Awesome design but it looks like he’s samba dancing… I don’t really get what they’re going for with that pose. At first I thought it was supposed to be paired with the Knifehead statue, but it doesn’t.

    While I appreciate the detail and the work that the designers and sculptors put into the master piece, that doesn’t mean that thing I’m paying $400 isn’t just some cast piece from China…

      Not quite sure I see the validity of your complaint, especially since most everything – from electronics to clothing – is made in places like China or Bangladesh.

      Which means that you do own things from China – they may not cost $400, that’s the only difference.

      • Scurvy

        I’m not complaining, just pointing out that this isn’t some high end hand crafted piece that completely justifies the price tag. It’s just a cast and painted piece from China and your $400 doesn’t pay for the craftsmanship and workmanship that went into your individual piece. It covers the cost of the original design and making the master mold.

        I know I own plenty of things that were made in China but they aren’t things that I am getting to appreciate the handwork and crafting that went into that piece. If I wanted to spend $400 on something like that, I could get a completely custom made pocket knife that was hand made by one individual person. It would also be worth a lot more than this thing will in 10 years.
