Customized Pacific Rim Toys Repainted With Details and Working Lights

Customized Leatherback toy with LED's and detailed paint
"I make custom toys, and try not to suck." -- Sabretooth Workshop

Sabretooth Workshop takes great toys and makes them greater. If he only added LED lights it would be amazing, but he recolors the toys with an airbrush and other detailed techniques to make these one-of-a-kind pieces of art collectibles.

Read his description of his amazing Leatherback kaiju:
There is an led located in the head with an easy on off switch located in-between his shoulders on his back.The batteries are inside the figure and are replaceable. This figure has a custom one of a kind paint job that I tried to get as close to the movie as possible, I used tamiya acrylics and other quality paints on this and I sealed it many times to reduce any chances of paint wear or chipping.
Recently he just did some incredible work on Gipsy Danger. See the progression below, click on any pic to see a larger view.

The toy starts in the box
First the toy is repainted and airbrushed

Additional paint details like weathering wear and tear are added.

LED lights and wiring are installed.

Sabretooth Workshop's Gipsy Danger is available on ebay.

We love all opinions from kaiju fans, even angry ones, but please keep the language clean. We have younger fans too. Thanks.
