Pacific Rim Kaiju Monster Stomps Through Qualcomm Stadium

 |  |  |  |  |  July 12, 2013


I’m totally stoked that Pacific Rim is finally hitting theaters today. I can’t wait to go see it and watch giant robots battle giant monsters on the IMAX screen. While awaiting the arrival of the film on the big screen, one of the giant Kaiju monsters apparently made its presence known at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.

 The creature left gigantic footprints around the parking lot and inside of the stadium, before returning to the ocean.

Obviously, the footprints weren’t left by an actual monster. At least I don’t think so. I’ve been told they were created as a promotional stunt for Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, to promote Pacific Rim and the Pacific Rim Kaiju Battle Android game. Still, the effort to create these massive footprints was gargantuan. Here are some stats on the footprints and how they were made:

  • 32,000 sq ft of industrial grade material, with 28,400 sq ft of printable area
  • Made up of scrim vinyl and 7oz poly-lined black out material
  • 56 rolls of scrim material, 150ft long each
  • 6000 ft of industrial adhesive compound tape
  • 72 hours of non-stop printing
  • 80 liters of ink (60 cases)
  • The layout of one footprint spans the length of 40 8-ft tables
  • Sewing together the footprints took 28 hours on industrial sewing machines
  • Each footprint weighed about 480 pounds, and it took 12 people to carry each one into position

There’s no sign of any Jaeger prints in the area, so you’d better keep your eyes peeled if you’re in the San Diego area.
