Here are 2 interesting articles I found this week riding on Guillermo Del Toro's newest movie:)
Cherno Alpha, Gipsy Danger, Crimson Something...ever wonder why the Jaegers are given such macho names? Ever wanted to build one of your own?
Thanks to Warner Bros, now you can.
Some awesome minded people have made Jaegers for their own countries, and someone compiled particularly hilarious ones on a tumblr. This one is clever (but I really LOL-ed at Rectal Thermometer)
Also, this mild engineering on how much torque needed to lift just one arm of a Jaeger is pretty interesting:
And a final interesting fact: Del Toro locked up artists in his mansion for a period of time so they could get together to create the Kaiju (monsters) you see in the movie. Pretty interesting.
The movie is worth watching. To me, anyway. Watch in IMAX or 2D for optimal experience!
