“Pacific Rim” viral ad and mech blueprints online

Giant. Fracking, Robots.

Deliciously bonkers fantasy auteur Guillermo Del Toro‘s giant Mechs versus alien monsters pic, Pacific Rim won’t be with us until next summer but the advance marketing has begun.

Only attractive people get to ride these rigs…

Ahead of the first proper trailer, scheduled to hit in front of “The Hobbit” in a matter of days, comes a blitz of Mech blueprints for the giant Jaeger robots defending us from certain annihilation at the tendrils and claws of the alien menace laying siege to Earth. ¬†There’s also a fancy-schmancy faux-news clip available to look at - if you like quick cuts and disorienting, blink-and-you’ll-miss-them images, go ahead and fill your boots.

Loving the scale in the blueprint above – that’s a wee human pilot standing at the foot of his/her ride. ¬†Wonder what kind of fuel efficiency those things get?
