Yesterday, Warner Bros. began revealing its viral marketing for Pacific Rim, which included blueprints for different giant robots, a.k.a. “jaegers”.  We’ve seen the Japanese Jaeger “Coyote Tango” and the Russian Jaeger “Cherno Alpha”.  The Jaegers are part of a worldwide effort to stop the onslaught brought on by giant monsters known as “kaiju”.  Today, we’re getting a look at the blueprint for the Australia Jaeger, “Striker Eureka”.  First off, all of the jaegers so far have cool names.  They also have unique weapons.  As you’ll see from Striker Eureka’s blueprint, this bad boy is outfitted with assault-mounted “sting blades”, brass knuckles, and other fun stuff.

Hit the jump to check out the blueprint for Striker Eurka (which will also be the name of my first child).  The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron PerlmanPacific Rim opens in 3D on July 12, 2013. [Update: Warner Bros. has now released the blueprint for the Chinese Jaeger “Crimson Typhoon,” which is included after the jump.]

Here’s the official synopsis for 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.
