I wanted to post a little blurb about this. Later on in August, we want to host a Custom Toy Convention(the idea is to have "reveals" each day, Thursday-Sunday on what people have been working on). We're looking for some customizers that are interested in taking on this challenge. Basically, one would need to make 3-5 custom figures that fall into the same group or line of figures. So for example, you weren't happy with the latest Iron Man 3 figures? Now is your chance to make your own "dream wave" of Iron Man 3 figures. Didn't like what Matty announced for their latest MOTU subscription? Now's your chance to make your own Sub. Have your own made up hodgepodge line of Steampunk Walking Dead, go for it!!! Any figure line, any scale is game here.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me any details. Right now, we're going to give you till September 13th to have your entries in. If you plan on entering this, please take work in progress photos too. Also, please post here, or PM me if you are in for sure. We're hoping to have a few extra segments going on with small "how-to", some interviews and what not. I'm also trying to work with a couple well known video reviewers and if the customizer is willing to have their work sent to a reviewer and have a video made of their product.

 

Things are still early in the planning, but I wanted to give as much notice as possible, to give people enough time. Again, please post here if you have any questions or if you are in for sure.

 

 

 

 

The main stipulations I have are:

 

1. There be 3-5 figures/vehicles made for this by a group or person.

 

2. Items cannot be something that has been shown before in the online world.

 

3. Before taking pictures, please refer to the sample(will be provided soon).

 

 

PLEASE DO NOT SHOW OFF ANY OF YOUR ENTRIES HERE OR ANYWHERE ELSE. IT DEFEATS THE PURPOSE, AND RUINS THE FUN.

i really wanted to participate, i just had nothing to show at the moment. i am working on a pretty big project at the moment which would make for a really nice entry, but it probably won't be done until sometime in November or December.

 

also got to say that the 3-5 figure rule is pretty intimidating. it's very rare that i ever have that many customs to show at once. in the future, i would suggest a preference of 2+, but be willing to accept individual entries. you'll get a few more takers that way.

Keep working on them, as I'm going to try to do this in the spring again, this time actually talking with people behind the scenes more months in advance. But to be fair, I did post this back in June, lol. Fug, I'll contact you around December and talk more about this. A couple problems people also had was sitting on and being quiet about stuff they made for so long, which I agree with, when I make a custom, I want to show it off, but I think a cool reveal like a convention when they reveal a new toy line, or some new waves, would be awesome. stay tuned and if you had something that you were working on, keep working on them. I had two entries and I'm keeping them quiet till next spring too.
