Still SONTINH-1, the anti-Kaiju Jaeger from Vietnam (inspired by Pacific Rim), but this time with some slight updates on the outside (some more yellow plates), and this time the background is Sai Gon with Bitexco Financial tower from afar.

I like his supercrotch. I reckon he could KO a kaiju with a single pelvic thrust.

I love it, it's one of the best fan jaegers I have seen over the net. However I think the only thing it's missing is to take more inspiration from other things, I mean I don't want to sound like I'm the bad guy, I just wanna say you could take it to a higher league then what it is now; you could try to make it as special as the real jaegers from the movie. Gipsy Danger is based of the huge ships and the eiffel tower (or any super tall tower) and Cherno Alpha is based of a submarine and tanks. Unless I'm missing the references in the pictures.

Thanks for the kind comment, and yeah, I didn't really put a lot of ideas into this one. But my main inspiration for this is from the tanks in the war and the metal bridges which are really common in Vietnam :D. Also, the red and yellow colors are from our national flag, that's all :D. I just did this for fun.

Well actually I guess it stops bugging me when I look at your first concept of it, your older submission. However other then that I still love it! I also love your back story I read on the other one, you should design some pilots? :D :P

However one thing I just catched and is now bothering me, is his wang.. Like seriously what on earth went through your mind when you designed that lower section xD I can see what shape you wanted to do but it isn't supposed to be that big lol

No no! I can see more effort now that I know where and what you got your inspirations from. Sadly I am stupid so I didn't know about the Vietnam flag (I'm sorry I meant no offense).

Overall the design is still perfect, I would definitely (if Guilermo Del Toro would ever do this it would be sooo awesome) show and recommend this idea to the Pacific Rim studios for a fan chosen/designed Jaeger.

I just didn't understand what it was based off of, so now that I know what it is based off of - I have a clear image in my head and I think it's a wonderful idea, seriously it's extremely original and I think it would be beautiful to see a real version of this.

Haha, thank you for all of your comments, I really appreciate them. Either way, this is just what I did for fun and to test something new outside of my comfort zone, and I'm glad that people like it :D. I'll do more robots/jaegers in the future for practice :D.
