I kind of feel like a disgrace to the Geek name because I never saw it in theaters. I know, Shocking isn't it?
Like many fans of the film, I instantly fell in love with the Russian Jaeger, Cherno Alpha. It's just 2,412 Tons of pure badassery! So of coarse I had to build one.
This MOC is in Microfig scale and stands in at 2' 11" tall. It took roughly 70 hours to build. I didn't keep track of the part count, but if I were to wager a guess, i'd say it contains no-less than 5000 pieces.
This last picture is a size Comparison. All the way down there by his foot is a microfig and Emmet. And remember folks, EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!!
You missed nothing Stuart. I also missed the chance to see it in a theater and when I finally saw it it was so cringe-worthy it took me 2 attempts to go through with it, and I still haven't finished it.
Seriously chunky! Awesome work, I asked for Pacific Rim for Christmas but didn't get it :-(
Whenever I do get to see it I might well just have to build a Jaeger. Can't see it being as big or beautifully detailed as this though! Well done!
WOW! You need to make the Something Eureka Whatever, you know, the UK's Jaeger. (Sorry it's been a while since I saw the movie) But I think the limbs are just a little bit too long, and maybe a tiny bit to thin.
You sir, have blown me away. The overlapping plate sections on the body are fantastic - I can't imagine how long those alone must have taken. Not to mention that the whole mech is exquisite - well done!
I can't get over this. The shaping is absolutely marvelous! It's like panel rockwork, except this can't be messy. The angles and shaping on the backside really impressed me and the technique you used for the head is perfect. Wow!
I just bought PR last week end, I had the idea to do something similar, I would have loved to see a modular next to it, it s grandiose! the scale is amazing! seeing the fig next to it gives it all it s deserved glory! bravo!
