My entry for the Pacific Rim Fan Art contest.
Bridger Rumble defending his post at the iconic Bayonne Bridge (you may have noticed its twin - one of only two like it in the world - outside Sydney Harbor in Pacific Rim: Uprising
I wanted Bridger to reflect Bayonne's military and naval history: prior to WWII, Elco Boat Works began building the first PT boats (today a fully restored crane sits at the northern most point in town), which would be instrumental in securing victory in the Pacific Theater, as well as defending the Americas from attack). The number on his right arm - 302 - is an homage to my late grandfather, who served on PT boats in the Mediterranean. Along with the famous PT-305 - which is one of only two remaining operational PT boats in the world - PT-302 lead one of the final attacks in the Mediterranean sea and may have even fired one of the last shots of the war in that theater.
Twin battleship-style cannons on his right shoulder are capable of firing up to ten rounds per barrel per second, while arm-mounted torpedoes can be fired both above and below the service, traveling at speeds of up to 30 feet per second.
His left arm is an upgrade from a prior skirmish and now features hydraulic pistons that allow for a massive, bone-shattering punch. When fully submerged, vents along the hull can open, taking in extra water to increase the force and speed of his punch, leading to what has been affectionately called "The Hydro Punch."
