Packaged images of Diamond Select Pacific Rim Uprising, Series 1

For the Pacific Rim sequel, Uprising, the toy licence has moved from NECA to Diamond Select toys. Diamond have at least two waves (6 Jaegers) planned for the movie as well as some Kaiju releases. The first wave is imminent to specialist stores in the US, with UK stocks likely following in early to mid-March.

With the release date upcoming, Diamond have released packaged images of the first wave. This figures will be packaged in the Select format packaging with the wonderful art panel to the side including shots of each Jaeger from the movie. The colouring is striking, one of the nicest Select packaging design schemes I have seen for a while.

Diamond have opted to not include the usual diorama base with the Pacific Rim figures and instead gone with swap out arms and weapons. While Gypsy Danger fills the Select packaging nicely, the other two - Bracer Pheonix and Saber Athena - do look a bit lost with lots of empty packaging. It makes you wonder what a nice miniature city scape would have looked like as a diorama to pose your Jaeger within.
