Diamond Select Toys Pacific Rim: Uprising 'Special Ops' Valor Omega, Saber Athena & Obsidian Fury

Diamond Select Toys is expanding its Pacific Rim range by moving into a sub-line called Pacific Rim Uprising 'Special Ops'. This new set of figures takes the existing Jaeger figures but gives them updated paint jobs inspired by concepts outside of the movies where the Jaegers take on new roles and have updated decor to match.

The first Special Ops wave includes a Mk2 version of Saber Athena, Obsidian Fury with Energy DIspersive Armour, and Jungle Ops Valor Omega. The trio of new figures are listed as a July 2023 release.

Return to the world of Pacific Rim with a new assortment of action figures! The Jaegers that took down the kaiju threat are back in new roles, and with those new roles come new paint jobs! Saber Athena MK2, Obsidian Fury (Energy Dispersive Coating) and Valor Omega (Jungle Ops) (all sold separately) make up Series 1, with more Jaegers to follow! Each 7" to 9" figure features over 16 points of articulation and comes packaged in a full-color window box. Designed and sculpted by Big Shot Toy Works!

About Me : As a child of the '70s and '80s I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force), and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licenses - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who, and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK-focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
