Pacific Rim Super Articulated Crimson Typhoon With Light Up Eye & Saw Hands
: Jay Cochran - 2013.08.11
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a Pacific Rim super articulated Crimson Typhoon with light up eye and saw hands. This custom was done by Jin Saotome
Here is how he describes it.
"This custom NECA Pacific Rim Crimson Typhoon figure is ready to battle the Kaiju with various modifications to the original figure. All the single direction arm hinges were removed and replaced with full motion universal joints including the wrists so Crimson Typhoon can cross its arms for blocking or strike with them. The removable saw hands came from Transformers mech-tech Ratchet's weapons and the larger one from an Ironhide Bot Shots trailer. Crimson's ankles were given ball joints as well so he could be posed to side-step incoming attacks. The mono eye was drilled out and given a light-up LED eye that shines in a spotlight effect just as it did in the movie. Extra sculpting detail was added on all the arms, body, and torso, then the entire figure was repainted with various armor shades, weathering, battle damage, and tiny lighted dots. Add a plasma blast effect and Crimson Typhoon is ready for his one minute of screen time and woeful defeat!"
