Though filming for Steven S. DeKnight's Pacific Rim sequel, Pacific Rim: Uprising has been taking place in Sydney, Australia for the past few months, Legendary have been busy advertising the film to various licencors. In the latest issue of License! Global, a preview for Pacific Rim 2 was featured which essentially gives us our first look at what we can only assume to the be film's three primary Jaegers - the giant mechs used to defend Humanity from Kaiju. The names for these Jaegers are still unknown, but the blue one has a very Gipsy Danger aesthetic to it. If you recall, last month we reported that Pacific Rim: Uprising might feature an upgraded Gipsy Danger mech - it would seem we were correct! Check out the images below and let us know what you think in the comments section!
