With this weekend’s release of Pacific Rim: Uprising, the sequel to the 2013 film Pacific Rim, all eyes are on the Jaegers and their fight against the Kaiju. Alex Kobbs of Kooberz Studios has released an all-action LEGO version called Pacific Brick. Featuring a huge Jaeger complete with minifigure pilots and set in a brick-built metropolis, this is the movie to see today.

The original Pacific Rim was a huge inspiration for many LEGO builders. The Jaeger were an obvious choice for mech builders and we saw a tonne of recreation of them at various scales. With the second movie, Uprising, out soon, we’re starting to see the same thing happen again. Talented builder Kelvin Low, whose amazing custom LEGO Hulkbuster we featured earlier this week, is responsible for this Bracer Phoenix rendition. That’s the mech from the trailer with what looks like a morning star attached to one arm.
If you want to make you own, you’re in luck. This 22-minute video uploaded by the builder will show you exactly how Kelvin created this custom mech.
Finally, if tan’s just not your colour, Gipsy Avenger has also been made, complete with its own build video.
We’ve featured a few Pacific Rim creations here, including a kaiju and a couple of Jaegers. Regardless if you loved or hated the movie, you’ve got to admit there’s something completely awesome about the massive robots.
Today, I present to you Gipsy Danger, built by JAN LEGO – complete with cargo ship.
And if you’d like more robot goodness from this builder, I HIGHLY suggest taking a peak at the rest of their flickr stream.
Jason Corlett spent 70 hours making this faithful replica of the hulking Cherno Alpha jaeger from Pacific Rim. Standing almost three feet tall, this build looks ready to cancel the apocalypse all on its own.

This is the beast that took down the Gipsy Danger. This is the Kaiju that demonstrated that they were learning our defenses. This was the battle of the beginning of the end for the Jaeger program. And it is magnificent.
OliveSeon brings us this brilliant brick-built beast from Pacific Rim, in all its glory. I can’t wait to see what else she has planned!
Japanese builder Moko brings us this awesome model of Gipsy Danger, the humongous alien-fighting war machine in Pacific Rim, Guillermo Del Toro’s high-budget homage to mecha.
