Leatherback is one of the largest kaiju of the 4th category that appeared near the coast of Hong Kong, paired with Otachi. Outwardly resembling a gorilla, it is the creators’ reference to the film King Kong. It has a special organ on its back that can naturally charge and generate an electromagnetic pulse. Leatherback does not possess the same level of intelligence or cunning as Otachi. Its physical strength is great enough to throw a Jaeger a long distance away. In battle, it is direct and relies more on physical strength and its own impressive dimensions. And it is a dangerous threat to digitized Jaegers.


The model is saved in STL files, a format supported by most 3D printers

FFF/FDM 1.0 version features:
- Contain 30 parts;
- Made with Locks for better fixing. One part of Lock (6_Ge_lock_10H_(X80)) you need to print 80 times.
- Made with 3 variants of the platform. Divided and Solid for different sizes of buildplates;
- All parts are divided in such way that you will print them with the smallest amount of supports.

DLP/SLA 1.0 version features:
- Same as FDM but smaller, also made as 13 parts;
