Me? I'd have an exact scale replica structure made of Striker Eureka (in its 'chest cannon fire' pose no less) for myself to live in. No joke. The 'cockpit' would be a living room / home theatre, bedroom it its 'chest', etc. If I have enough money afterward, I'll have a scale Slattern built across the street.
Oh, and I'd finance somebody competent to make a game based on the universe of the film, perhaps chronicling the beginning of the Jaeger program & such (as the enemies get tougher, the controls & abilities of the Jaegers get more refined, precise, and powerful to mimic the progression of the technology and the Kaiju). Perhaps begin with Axehead / Trespasser & have that part play out more like an RTS or flight sim hybrid... or heck, have it play out kind of like X-Com! Manage the PPDC, funding, etc. Of course, combat would be action-based instead of turn based...
Why somebody would need to finance such a thing is beyond me; you'd think a concept like 250ft. mech vs. 250ft monster would be one of the simplest concepts in the fucking world to translate to a video game, but... well, it took Hollywood this long just to make a proper movie out of it, and that pretty much says it all.
Hell, even taking Godzilla: Save the Earth & transplanting PR Kaijus & Jaegers into it, then selling the thing for ten bucks on XBL would be a thousand times better than what we actually got...
Don't even get me started on why we can't get a decent Robotech game. They're jets that turn into bipeds & fire lots of missiles, why the fuck is it so god damn hard to get a decent game of that? *continues drunkenly ranting to nobody in particular*
