I hope they keep the cutting between cockpit interiors and exteriors during the fight scenes to a minimum this time around. That shit was annoying in the first movie. It's like, OK, I get it, the robot moves mimic the pilots. Stop cutting away in the middle of awesome shit.
I thought of that but how would that actually work? The Kaiju melding together clearly catches them off guard, for the Jaegers to merge they'd need to have that function already programmed into them, be built for the purpose of connecting. So unless they secretly expected that the need to Constructacon themselves would arise in the future, they'd need to build brand new Jaegers for that to work.
Thinking about it I'm actually gonna be kind of pissed if they just suddenly have the ability to connect without any build up or prior explanation, that's a huge logic gap.
