I loved Pacific Rim.  The tone and writing were great fun, the Jaeger designs were creative and well-realized, and the action intense. What could be a more perfect film to get awesome, highly detailed and well-made action figures?  Well, at least NECA got it half right.

Striker Eureka is a brilliant, shining stare of adequate toy design in a line plagued by shortcomings.  This Aussie anime Jaeger gets it the closest to ‘right’ out of the whole line.
