    Most of the jaegers are FUBAR, and there is no need to build them back up.
    Key word in bold.
    Crimson T.(only damage is a missing head) and Cherno(damaged armor, fake "head" reactor, and one arm) could be fully functional within months.

    I've pointed this out about 6 times so far. Is it really not sticking?

    No I've read it, I didn't say all, I said 'most'. As you bolded heh. I chose my words carefully.

    But lets be honest here, they aren't going to just use those two armors to fight off what comes in the sequel. There WILL be new suits. It wouldn't be a sequel if they didn't try and kick it up a notch now would it...

    Cherno is in worse shape for that. It blew up under water and flooded with water.
    Just the cockpit, and it would take more than that to make it only scrap-worthy. Besides, materials can be recycled, if need be!
    And, water can be pumped out.

    You act like it's supposed to be written off.


    Jaegers are big enough-scale wise that you don't write them off as done unless they get completely atomized like Striker and Gypsy in the Breach did.

    Repairing them is almost always more worth it than just leaving them to sit there.
    Gypsy got messed up in PR1's prologue, and it was BETTER than new given time and resources(not too long, if I'm recalling Tales from Year Zero correctly).

    Come on...

    Right, you know how this is probably going to go, and you're thinking about this in terms of actuality, like myself.
    And, of course, there will be more.

    I'm just baffled that Crimson and Cherno are being thought of as done for.

    Cherno got hit with acid, melted, pummeled, exploded, crushed, and left underwater, full of water. It's fucking done. They could maybe save an arm MAYBE, but for all intensive purposes, it's fucking done.

    You act like water = "Oh, you had something mechanical/electronic, and it got wet in any way? Get another one!"
    That is not how physics/chemistry/science actually work. I'm at a loss that anyone actually might believe in that.

    Also, regarding how much of a beating Cherno actually took...
    Did that explosion's size look in any way like it was from anything besides just the cockpit, really?
    It is a little bigger than Leatherback's fist, and the explosion from it was also a tiny bit bigger than his hand.
    Also, looking again, Cherno still had both arms, though the one Otachi attacked was pretty damaged on its hand, and Cherno was actually still going well enough, the pilots just got killed, is all. Jaegers move because of their pilots, after-all; they are motion capture mecha, like in G Gundam. They WERE still fighting after all the damage that got done, too.

    Here, watch 2:22-2:32 closely:
    Leatherback weighs about 2900 tons. Cherno weighs 2450-something.

    Cherno was starting to actually get up again, even with that heavy opponent holding it down.

    Also, pics to help show that you are seeing damage where none happened.
    Still has both arms, right arm is damaged:
    81IieAZ.jpg?2
    Leatherback's hand not fitting completely over the cockpit:
    iBEmaiel.jpg?1
    Explosion the same size as the cockpit:
    eoUv9Uol.jpg?2

    You know what this level of wear and tear is called in workshops, and other places that work with heavy equipment?
    More work than usual.

    It really ISN'T that much damage for a Jaeger; reactor/reactor housing, right hand, cockpit/cockpit enclosure, and a fair amount of armor plating.
    That is not a lot of damage, for stuff of this scale.

    For instance, one of the more prominent examples, this is what Horizon Brave(Mark 1Chinese Jaeger, before Crimson's time) looked like when it lost, and it's pilots were killed: HgISsQZl.jpg
    These are not impossible, nor improbable repair jobs.


    Ignore all that I just pointed out to show that you aren't thinking about this with how actual physics work.
    Please.

    Let this be the 7th time I get ignored for showing reality, and not telling of exaggeration.
    I'm fine with being a doomed intellectual victor.

    Fucking FINALLY.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the director but as long as he understands mecha and monsters, it's fine

    Agreed. However, if the movie knows what lane it is supposed to be in and deliver something special I am all for it.

    Yeah I agree the outfit looks pretty bad, but maybe they're going to CG it up a bit? Ugh, I dunno, I'm still worried overall

    Tbh it just looks like it was made to have the details cged in.
    “It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so ****ing what."

    That last pic looks like a slightly fatter, much younger Denzel Washington to me lol

    Boyega has a six-pack. the problem is he has unnaturally wide hips for a man. that's why he always wears suits that have more slack in the middle and poses for photos with his arms at his sides- but slightly forward- and slightly balls his fists.
    Forget trying to pass for normal. Follow your geekdom. Embrace nerditude. In the immortal words of Lafcadio Hearn, a geek of incredible obscurity whose work is still in print after a hundred years, “Woo the muse of the odd.” You may be a geek. You may have geek written all over you. You should aim to be one geek they’ll never forget. Don’t aim to be civilized. Don’t hope that straight people will keep you on as some sort of pet. To hell with them. You should fully realize what society has made of you and take a terrible revenge. Get weird. Get way weird. Get dangerously weird. Get sophisticatedly, thoroughly weird, and don’t do it halfway. Put every ounce of horsepower you have behind it. Don’t become a well-rounded person. Well-rounded people are smooth and dull. Become a thoroughly spiky person. Grow spikes from every angle. Stick in their throats like a pufferfish. -Bruce Sterling

    I literally only meant his face, not his overall body weight. He has a slightly chubby looking face IMO

    I must have missed something, is this movie a prequel?

    Yea that's why I'm confused. The mechs look way quite a bit more advanced then what was in PC1...but Boyega looks like he's playing a younger Idris Alba. I'm confused.

    No Mako gonna make me like this movie less....:bluu:

    Is there going to be another female japanese pilot? I hope they'll include clothing damage when she's in the mech.

    I wanna see them put the cockpit in the groin area so we can watch the female pilot enter crotch first.
