Pacific Rim Mutavore BTS 1

Back at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, we got our first look at NECA‘s newest Pacific Rim Kaiju; the ultra-deluxe Mutavore! Today they have shared a cool behind the scenes image. It shows off some detailed images and a look at the articulation breakdown. Here’s more info on Mutavore straight from NECA:

From the epic Pacific Rim movie, our newest boxed, ultra-deluxe kaiju action figure is Mutavore!

Just when the world thought that the alien invasion was over, this Category IV kaiju emerged from the breach and easily broke through Sydney’s Anti-Kaiju Wall. At over 8” tall and over 6” wide, Mutavore is massive – larger than the previously released Trespasser, Scunner and Knifehead! This movie-accurate figure utilizes 100% new tooling, features over 30 points of articulation, and is to scale with our Jaeger action figures.

Release Date: November 2015

Read on to see the new images.
