CustomCon 20 is in the books. Hosted once again by the boys and girls at The Fwoosh, CustomCon 20 featured lots of great work. 39 pages of new custom action figures brought a strong mix of classically inspired figures and down right goofy creativity.
One of the more creative lines is brought to you by Meatloaf of Darkness - Enemas of the Loaf - who finally accomplished the impossible task of putting squash, a donut, and some vengeful, vulgar vegemite into action figure form. Not to be outdone, Apathy Ink stepped to the table with a very detailed (both the figure and the back story) entry called GombiZobPocalypse.
In a more classic vein, Marvel and DC are again very well represented. Monkey Pops set the bar with 8 total waves of custom actions figures. His Sword & Shield Productions created 5 waves of All-Star Squadron and 3 waves of X-Men Evolutions - featuring the original 5 X-Men in various team outfits.
My personal favorite is Raybot’s Ultimate X-Men line. 6 well detailed custom action figures join three existing ToyBiz creations to make up this 9 character team.
As usual, there’s just too much for me to sum up into one tiny blog entry. Don’t take my word for it. Check it out for yourself, and sing the praises of the participants in The Fwoosh’s forums.
