'Pacific Rim' Featurette: Building Original Robots

PACIFIC RIM
One of the challenges facing Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim is the sense that we've seen it all. That all the designs for future tech are drawn from obvious inspirations, and that almost everything can be traced to someone else's ideas.
