Elegab GID Day-Glo Shuttlegon   1 comment

Elegab is the work of a single man in Japan, and is cranking out some of the most original vinyl kaiju available right now.  All of Elegab’s stuff has a rougher hand-made feel, and the figures never sacrifice on the fun factor.  The Shuttlegon here is a towering monster held into some kind of containment suit with a jetpack and mechanical wrench-arm that can grab and hold mini figures!  This custom is painted on the Glow In the Dark blank that was released a few months ago… I also have a blank Monster Patrol Car (another amazing toy) to paint up some day.  I wanted to try using more colors than I usually do, and used a shiny finish instead of my usual matte.  The metallic bits are all Future shiny and look like candy, and all of the organic bits were hit with a 50/50 Future and Vallejo Satin mix.  The eyes were painted to match the production Elegab pieces with a thick and rough white and black combo.  The horns and claws and teeth are all the base GID vinyl, and the whole figure still glows really well through the paint.  Glow shots to come tonight.

  1. Congratulation for this custom paint. I love your choice of colors and the idea of putting some details on the portholes/dials.

    You made a very good use of this unpainted release.
