Last week, Legendary Pictures tweeted a couple of pages from the upcoming behind-the-scenes art book Pacific Rim: Man, Machines, and Monsters by David S. Cohen that show the designs behind Jaeger pilot Raliegh Beckett (Charlie Hunnam).
It's cool to see some pages from Guillermo del Toro's detailed notebook. I wish I knew Spanish to translate it.
Check out the rest of the images after the jump and click to enlarge.
The book is available for pre-order from Amazon now.

What do you think of the illustrations? Do you think Pacific Rim will rock? What do you think these designs say about the character?
Official PACIFIC RIM Synopsis
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
