Pacific Rim - Draculea [RO] by WormWoodTheStar Pacific Rim - Draculea [RO] by WormWoodTheStar
I know, I know, I should have come up with more original name than "Dracula" in Romanian :roll: For a time I considered "Anton", after the main character of my unfinished story "Battlefield Transylvania" about Hungaro-Romanian War in 1940s and 1950s. However I decided someone may think it was after Ion Antonescu, fascist dictator of Romania in WWII, so I dropped this. I was also thinking about some Romanian WWI war hero, but couldn't come up with a fitting name. So I choose "Draculea" in the end.

I wanted its camo to remind of Romanian national colours, but none of the combinations (blue/red, blue/yellow, yellow/red) looked good enough, so I left red and chose a random shade of green.

I decided that Black Sea is spearated from the rest of World's Ocean by small straits, so only relatively small Kaiju would be able to invade it. Therefore Draculea did not have to have as much armour as Pacific Jaegers, giving it greater agility. Plus, it would allow it to fight in difficult Carpathian environment.

Better view here.

EDIT: Whoa, I didn't expect it to be so popular :o I hope you guys realise this is just something I assembled in a Jaeger generator, so it's not anything special ^^;

Nice design, but you should have used another background. It is really hard to make the color scheme on this one. Otherwise well done. ;)

Here's mine. :)

Looks awesome. The name is a bit of a cofusion, but it's nothing really bad about it. 

 The color, yes, I can understand the problem with combining them, I suppose maybe the flag painted on the sides of his arms like a tattoo would have worked, but just as well.

 I really like your approach with it. Seeing this bad boy in front can be a real sare, claws and sword looks awesome. 

 His agility and light-weight attributes could make him an awesome support piece for quick interventions and saves in case a fellow droid was in danger or in case of a surprise attack. (His agility helps overcome any mountain environment.)

 So awesome work, this looks very threatening and powerful.

It's pretty good all I can think of is this bad boy walking on the green plains in Muntenia or through the forests of Transylvania. Really good choice of color!

My thought process back then was: "Hmm, I can't make it blue-yellow-red, because the maker only allows two colours... wait, what do we get when we combine blue and yellow... Blellow! Err, I mean green. Yeah, green it is" :XD:

Lol :XD: I actually took the name from one of my stories - Operation Draculea was a Romanian offensive against Hungarian forces invading Transylvania.
