Do giant robots fighting big monsters excite you? Well if you’re like me, you’re looking forward to Pacific Rim: Uprising. And if one of your favorite things about the giant robots is what kind of equipment is featured, you’re gonna get excited for this new spot highlighting some of Gipsy Avenger’s sweet specs.

The lead Jaeger piloted by Jake Pentecost (John Boyega) and Nate Lambert (Scott Eastwood) has some kickbutt features. For one, it has a rocket punch, more specifically an elbow rocket. Now, the Jaeger’s namesake, Gipsy Danger, also had an elbow rocket. So the Avenger version is a 2.0 and seemingly much faster than the original. It also has a 2.0 Chain Sword but it has one new feature the original didn’t have – a Gravity Sling. The sling is able to grab debris and fling it at enemies. We don’t know how large the object can be but at least we know a little bit can be thrown around.

My biggest question with all of these trailers is – who is in the Jaeger fighting all the others? The green-grey Jaegar fighting Gipsy Avenger in both the city and a one-on-one match in the snow. Our heroes are fighting more than monsters from a different dimension. I’m curious to see who.

Check out the spot below and let us know what you think. Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more robots punching monsters.

Jake Pentecost is a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous Kaiju. Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through cities and bring the world to its knees, Jake is given one last chance by his estranged sister, Mako Mori, to live up to his father’s legacy.

Pacific Rim: Uprising is in theaters March 23rd.
