Ultimate Vinyl Championship: Paul Kaiju vs LASH!!!

Tonight we have two artists go toe-to-toe in the ring of custom Japanese vinyl! In this corner, we have the legendary Paul Kaiju; master of the airbrush and well known for his fine eye for color. His fighter is a custom Glow in the Dark BlobPus painted in blues and purples using a special "rub" technique that is just amazing!

His opponent is from the upstart camp of LASH! Another fine artist that just recently started customizing Japanese vinyl. LASH whose real name is Rich took a Secret Base Skullwing and painted clear blue boxing arms with a black, metallic blue and purple body for this amazing example of fighting spirit!

Thanks man!

be careful, it's a very slippery slope...once you get one or two, you will be selling off your western vinyl and maybe even your 12" collection to focus on kaiju....
