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*
AN' DERE AIN'T NO SUCH FING AS ENUFF DAKKA, YA GROT! Enuff'z more than ya got an' less than too much an' there ain't no such fing as too much dakka. Say dere is, and me Squiggoff'z eatin' tonight!
