Check out this massive Striker Eureka Jaeger statue from Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, with the Aussie assault mech re-created out of 5,000 LEGO bricks by Jason Corlett.   The LEGO master constructed this hulking Mark V replica over a period of 90 hours, and the finished fighter stands at just under 3 feet tall and 18 inches wide.  Until del Toro attacks his Pacific Rim sequel sometime in the presumed future, here's a reminder of the sheer awesomeness of the film's towering squad of mega-monster-hunting machines.
