  • Upon approaching the city, Mutavore's path is hindered by Echo Saber and Vulcan Specter, whose mission is to stop the Kaiju. Mutavore easily dispatches the Jaegers. It tore the torso of Echo Saber and beat Vulcan Specter "into scrap".

    Why was this scene in the novelization and not the actual movie? I would've liked to see these 2 Jaegers.

    • Somewhere around here theres a thread about "Mutavore didnt destroy 2 Jaegers after all". There's a link to the tumblr of that guy who calls what is canon and what isnt, and it turns out that isnt canon.

    • As far as Travis Beacham is concerned it did not happen.



      mr-x-the-psychotic-fanatic asked: What exactly happened in Sydney in 2025? The novel states that Mutavore destroyed two Jaegers before fighting Striker Eureka... is that true? I only ask because the novel appears to have a bit of outdated info (it states that Hong Kong was the site of the second kaiju attack in 2014, for example), and the fights weren't mentioned in the news report in the film. Thanks for your time! :)  Travis Beacham: Mutavore didn’t destroy two Jaegers before engaging Striker Eureka. I’m very often asked how much of the novelization is “canon.” Novelizations are routinely derived from early drafts of the script. It’s the only way they can be published in time for the release. The trouble is that of course many things can change in that time, so many film novelizations typically contain certain narrative discrepancies. This novelization is generally in line with our bible, but one shouldn’t feel obligated to accept whatever doesn’t seem to align with the film. If the novel says Raleigh has a sister, you can probably assume he has a sister for as long as that possibility is not pointedly excluded by the expanded universe works subsequent to the fact of the film. But if the novel says the second attack is Hong Kong and the movie says it’s Manila, it must be Manila. The film is the final arbiter of fact.

    • If it did happen, I don't think they would've deleted it. If the scene was made, it would have took great effort and not be deleted. However, it could've been a scrapped idea

    • Echo saber and Vulcan spector are still alive then but why wernt they used to fight at the end. It is stated that only 4 jeagers remain before the hong kong incident.

    • They were destroyed before then.5

    • Perhaps...... they never existed at all!

    • They were certainly destroyed sooner.


      On deleted scenes, if there was a jaeger fight or a Kaiju scene, it'd at *least* be in the DVD, quite possibly the final movie. They wouldn't scrap something that costs so much to make entirely. The closest to a 'deleted' jaeger scene is a bit longer version of the Hardship/Romeo Blue fight, which of course we did see a snippet of in the opening.


      Any other deleted scenes are going to be human scenes.

    • There are at least four confirmed deleted scenes:

      1. Ralieigh and Tommy atop the Wall in Sitka.

      2. An extended scene between Newt and Raleigh in the elevator.

      3. Newt stealing the parts needed to make his "neural bridge from garbage".

      4. Herc and Chuck having a heated conversation.

      Scenes 3 and 4 are, in fact, present in the novel almost shot for shot and word for word. Scene 1 has a counterpart in the novel as well, but it's not an exact match.

      All four scenes are avaialable to watch here: http://vimeo.com/79695037

    • They said Vulcan Specter was "just like Gispy Danger..." So until we know more, we can assume it looks like the original Gipsy.
