A detailed specs poster for what we believe to be an upcoming figure of Pacific Rim: Uprising's new main Jaeger Gipsy Avenger has been spotted on display by the website figsoku! The poster gives us quite a few details about the new Mark VI Jaeger and its weaponry.
From the image below, we now know Gipsy Avenger will come equipped with Elbow Rockets like that of the original Gipsy Danger (version 2.0), a version 2.0 of the iconic chain sword attachment and a plasma caster!
Piloted we assume by John Boyega's Pentecost and Scott Eastwood, we also have learned that Gipsy Avenger will have the ability of momentary flight, with the addition of an airborne launch system and unlike Gipsy Danger, Gipsy Avenger will sport a dual vortex turbine instead of a singular one.
It's awesome to see similar blueprint schematics for the Jaegers in Uprising like they created for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim. Expect to see more of these crop up soon!
What do you think of Gipsy Avenger so far? Let us know in the comments section!
