Pacific Rim “Knifehead” Action Figure

Pacific Rim was an awesome movie and the build up for it in the months leading up to its release was fun to experience. We were only shown glimpses of the giant monsters (Kaiju). The kaiju that we got to see most of was this one called Knifehead.

When I first opened my Knifehead figure I was very disappointed because I couldn't make him stand up. His tail was too low so it was impossible to make him stand upright as he was shown in various pictures of the figure. I eventually watched a video online (which you can find below) and found that his tail is bendable, which makes it much easier to pose him!

Knifehead has four arms but only two of them are moveable which was a little bit of a disappointment. Also, his joints were very stiff and hard to move. After posing him for a few minutes one of his legs broke off at the knee! If you've read my post on the Gipsy Danger figure you'll see that I had a similar experience there. So I'm not too thrilled with the build quality of these figures even though they look really, really cool! I was able to put some putty (the stuff that you hand posters with) into the joint and it's holding up pretty well while still being movable.

The pointy head is actually quite sharp and could really cause some damage to little kids. Also, the claws are really sharp too. So it's probably a good idea to keep this figure out of the hands of little ones. With the figures seemingly very breakable it may be a good idea to not let kids play with them at all. Maybe they are meant for display only?

Even with the negatives that I've pointed out here, I still think this is a really cool figure and some of the poses you can put it in are really menacing. You can make a very cool scene using the three figures in the first series from NECA.
