Crimson Typhoon is unique among the other Jaegers in the film 'Pacific Rim' for having 3 pilots, and unique among NECA's Pacific Rim toyline in that it boasts the highest number of articulated joints (I counted 20 points of articulation) - due in no small part to it's 3rd arm, which you will find seperated from the body of the mech in the packaging. It snaps on quickly with a flexible ball joint.

All of NECA's Pacific Rim figures are incredibly sturdy, and Crimson Typhoon is no exception. It features a striking read paint job with beautiful Cantonese dentailing. This figure's joints are pleasantly stiff and highly posable. The only real complaint I have is that its feet do not rotate horizontally, preventing the mech from planting its feet firmly on the ground at a wide stance. It can be tricky finding the right stance to get his feet planted firmly on the ground. That said, contrary to what a fellow reviewer has stated, I had no difficulty standing Typhoon with his legs fully extended.

Purchasing this figure in anticipation of the movie has made me want to collect the rest of this very quality figure line. I highly recommend this figure for collectors and kids at heart.

It looks just like how it did in the movie Pacific Rim. The paint is done pretty well, and is quite a large figure, standing at around 7in. The only complaints I have with this figure are the arms and ankles. The figure's back arm is quite posable, but the front one only moves back and forth. And the ankles do not go flat onto the ground if you spread the legs for a pose, so it looks like its standing on the sides of it's feet. Overall, I thought this was a pretty awesome figure, and I'm happy to add it to my collection.

As a fan of Pacific Rim, fan of Crimson Typhoon. This action figure is awesome, I love it. It's very good for it's size (it's highly detailed too) however I think it was very overpriced. I paid $39 and I think that's outrageous if you ask me. I seen some on eBay that was $40 and up. I don't understand how these sellers are selling at this price when it's not worth $39/40 dollars, this item is not even rare! The price should been $22.99 or $24.99 at the most. If your a fan, it's worth buying but at the same time it's kinda not because the ridiculous price.

I've been a huge fan of the movie "Pacific Rim" since seeing it in theaters, and have been amassing quite a collection of merchandise from the movie. Among said merchandise has been the NECA series of action figures, which have since joined my ever-growing robot figure collection. I was originally going to just stop at Cherno and Gipsy, but then I grew to love the other two main Jaegers of the film and set about acquiring them. And due to various circumstances, Crimson Typhoon was the last of the four main Jaegers to join the collection.

Curiously, the last Jaeger to join the collection may also be the best -- Crimson seems to be the best figure of the NECA Pacific Rim line.

Like all the Jaegers, Crimson is gorgeously detailed, with a marvelous sculpt and intricate paint applications. He has a distinctly weathered look to him that adds to the realism, and is quite poseable. I especially love his legs, which are built differently from the other Jaegers and more resemble bird or dinosaur legs than human legs. He doesn't come with his saw-weapons, but that's a minor nitpick.

I'm not sure why other reviews complain about Crimson being flimsy, as he seems pretty solidly built to me. Perhaps there are some flawed figures in the line, and I just lucked out with a well-built one.

Well worth the money, and probably the best figure so far in the Pacific Rim line. Crimson has a place of honor in my collection.

NECA has done it again! This figure is highly detailed, with articulation on a par with the newer Predator figures. If you are a serious collector,or just get a kick out of sci-fi robots,this is one that will surely please you!

What this Jaeger lacks in poseability, she makes up for in looking so friggin awesome and screen accurate. Now she is poseable and can be put in WAY better poses than Wave 1 Gipsy and Knifehead, and considering Knifehead and Gipsy have gotten new molds to allow better/more movement (Gipsy Danger 2.0 is coming soon with changable battle damaged parts, two plasma gun arms, and a hand that holds the famous oil tanker baseball bat.), so with that in mind, hopefully Crimson Typhoon 2.0 and the rest will follow!

The Crimson Typhoon figure can be a bit difficult to work with. The main right arm has some sort of glue stuck in it's shoulder joint so u might wanna pop it off somehow and scrape the glue out. The paint work on this figure is amazing and its also super detailed. Points of articulation is also good except there's no articulation in the feet at all. The three arms concept is good and the hips can completely rotate (just like in the movie!). Unfortunately, his hands don't turn into blades so no Thundercloud Formation here people.
