When Guillermo del Toro promised us huge fucking robots in Pacific Rim, he wasn't kidding, was he? The new Comic Con poster for del Toro's "monsters vs. robots" movie includes a couple of people standing on the robot's shoulder, for scale.

This is our first glimpse of what might be the Jaegar, the obsolete giant robot that a washed-up pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) have to team up to pilot, as humanity's last hope against the rampaging giant monsters that have decimated our other giant robot forces. Here's a great look at the poster in awesome high-res, click to make huge:

DISCUSSION

I know this is just a movie so I will suspend disbelief, but no matter how big these monsters might be, pretty sure it's more effective to fight it with a whole bunch of smaller robots. Would you be more afraid of a single ant which is the same size as you, or a billion tiny flesh eating ants that can crawl all over (and into) you and slowly chew you into pieces?
