Pacific Rim Japan

Saw the trailer for Pacific Rim when we went to see Iron Man 3 the other day and it immediately went on the "must see" list.
Synopsis from the official site as follows.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.

On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Even though the concept was taken from Japanese mecha vs kaiju, I'm not entirely sure about the mecha design at the moment but maybe they were purposely designed to look retro? I'm sure the designs will grow on me when we get to see them in action.
