Like them or not, when it comes to NECA, it isn't surprising that they'll go beyond the call of action when it comes to the figures they release, especially if its for a series that is big on sales! Pacific Rim, though only one movie into its planned trilogy, has garnered a cult following that includes fans of the Kaiju genre as well as anime, mecha, and more. So it would be stupid to just stop releasing figures after the main Kaiju and Jaegers have been done with!
A couple months ago, we saw the release of the first Jaeger featured in the prologue sequence of Pacific Rim (2013), Tacit Ronin. Now we have Mark I Jaeger, Romeo Blue, one of the very first Jaegers in mankind's war against the Kaiju. It did not survive to see action in the rest of the film, but it is the one Jaeger in the prologue sequence to be given the most screen time.
So, how does this particular Jaeger stack up with the rest? Let us check it out together!
If you are a massive Pacific Rim fan (much like myself) and are a completist, then I recommend this figure to you. However if you are happy enough with the main set of Jaegers (Gipsy Danger, Striker Eureka, Crimson Typhoon, and Cherno Alpha) then this is an easy pass for you.
