A Crimson Typhoon Jaeger pilot drivesuit display from Guillermo Del Toro's 2013 mega monster movie Pacific Rim. A race of monsters known as "Kaiju" terrorized the Earth, forcing mankind to build a team of massive robots called "Jaegers" to battle them. This drivesuit variant was designed for the Wei Tang Brothers (Mark, Charles, and Lance Luu) to wear when copiloting the Chinese Jaeger, Crimson Typhoon.
Created by Legacy Effects for the film, this zip-back drivesuit features urethane armor affixed with a fabric bodysuit and rubber neck, spine, and codpieces for mobility. The gloves are constructed of Spandex with urethane covers, while the boots are sneakers encased in a urethane shell. The suit is painted dark red with a goldtone dragon logo on the chest and the Pan Pacific Defense Corps (PPDC) symbol on both shoulders and lined with lights, albeit no longer connected to a power source.
The helmet is designed for a snug fit, with a detachable magnet closure, LED lights, and a small microphone situated inside to allow the performer to be heard during production. This suit is presented on a custom-made display mannequin and base.
The lot is in excellent condition with minimal wear from production and handling, including production-made weathering and scratches throughout to appear damaged by Kaiju . Dimensions: 21" x 31" x 74" (53.5 cm x 79 cm x 188 cm)
