I believe coolermaster showed off a green backlit, MX green switched Storm Trigger at CES. I would avoid Razer products. My best friend keeps buying their stuff and it just keeps breaking, and is never particularly high-quality to begin with considering the price tag most of their stuff carries (personal experience. Not bashing or flaming). Also, the Deck TOXIC looks awesome, but I haven't ever used a deck so I can't comment on it. The mechanical keyboards I've used extensively are:

1) Ducky shine with red switches
2) Storm trigger with brown switches
3) Ducky shine with blue switches (my roommate has the green LED one that you want)
4) Azio levetron with black switches
5) Blackwidow with blue switches

the Ducky's are no frills (though the green LED shine 2 has some really cool lighting modes), but you get what you pay for in that they are solid, sturdy boards.

The trigger (which is my current board) is really nice with everything slightly rubberized. I think browns are my favorite switch, but the annoying thing about the trigger is that it takes more power than the included USB cable can supply. It has a 5v input for extra power, and without it, regular USB can only power it at the lowest brightness setting with nothing using the pass-through ports.

Azio: was a mess. Instead of stabilizers under the wide keys, it uses these weird paper clip-like things which get stuck, so the shift key and spacebar aren't reliable at all. The keycaps fade after a few weeks of use, and the overall build is nowhere near as solid as the whole "mech" theme would have you believe

Razer: Shiny, thin plastic, fingerprint magnet, weak backlight (and low lifespan LED's). Nice and heavy--it has a good feel when you pick it up, and blue switches are a delight to type on (though they are loud) but overall the Razer always felt chintzy to me. Also, the shiny plastic gets scratched and scuffed super quickly, so it won't look new for long.
