A prequel maybe? :D

Sequel. John Boyega is playing the son of Stacker Pentecost from the first movie, that was Idris Elba's character.

Nice to see him going beyond Star Wars. I still may not watch this one as I never watched the first one, but good for him!

Apparently. In fairness, it was not a show to dwell on the background of supporting characters. There's nothing there to really imply Pentecost DIDN'T have a son, but... there wasn't anything to imply he did, either.

It is great to see this film making progress, I loved the first one.

That 2nd photo looks like he's holding a Star Trek phaser. Beautiful irony there, if it turns out to be something like that.

He still has it in his hand in the 3rd and 4th photos, not sure what it is but looks too unwieldy to be a weapon.

Yeah, just the way he's holding it in the 2nd one looks phaser-ish. Looking a little closer, is it maybe a toy robot? That would certainly fit the theme.

Some of the original cast will be back I presume?

According to Wikipedia, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Burn Gorman are confirmed to be back.

No Ron Perlman? I am disappointed :(

I hope he busts out a lightsaber in this film.  Would be cool to see a few Star Wars Easter eggs in it at least :)

I have to agree, these designs definitely look more anime, especially the red one.

In the first film the pilot suits had a very anime look and now the jaegers are fitting in with that a bit more. I think that the red one may be a bit thin looking although it may be designed more for speed. Either way I'm far more interested now seeing more images and hoping for a great trailer soon and a movie that hopefully won't disappoint.

Loved the first one to death, can't wait for the sequel! Gypsy 2.0 looks awesome, and yes, much more anime inspired, which I'm fine with.

What is "License! Global"? The sourcing seems odd... I'm a bit suspect, but just a bit. If it's real, then I like the direction it's going. I don't prefer it to the original, but I don't prefer the original, either. Both look good. That Gypsy 2.0 face plate is bleh, though. Reminds me too much of... Time Shift? I think that was the name of it. Old old PS3/360 game.

Looks like the cover of any old pc/console game heh...and there would be a screencap of the jaegers fighting the kaiju's on the back cover...

Speaking of which how much more variation can a kaiju be...

That sounds right.

 

Honestly, I think I like the new head unit(can I call it a pilder? Please?). It is appealing to a more modern anime aesthetic than the curvy Gypsy 1.0 head, but it works.

And the straight "wings" work better for me than the old "over the shoulder" pieces.

So...uh... They didn't learn that the cockpits on the heads are a bad idea after Crimson Typhoon's crew got smooshed so easily in the last movie? ;p

I'm looking forward to this. The first film was so much fun.

Also how they lost Raleigh's brother.

 

As I understand it, the official reason is that the neural interface hardware is very sensitive to radiation from the jaegars' reactors, and thus mounted very far from the core and stored separately from the rest of the jaegar when not in use. Of course, with the implication that newer jaegars aren't nuclear-powered, I dunno.

I suppose it's better than being in the left foot ;)

Having it the other way round didn't help the Alpha's crew, poor devils, since in THAT location they couldn't eject.

Actually, I think it was said somewhere that Russian Jaegers didn't have ejection systems because their pilots were expected/trained to fight to the death.

Dunno if that theory holds water or not...
