Title: And the "That '70s Custom!" Winners Are......
Post by: Scotty on May 30, 2011, 04:44:55 am
First off, thanks all for great participation - we had a great "turnout" of members voting in this comp, including a few "lurkers" who really should join in and post!  ;)

Many people remarked on how difficult the choice was and the overall excellent standard of the entries. All customs received votes via the 2 pts for first place and 1 pt for second system. Everyone deserved to be proud of their entries!

In the end, there were two customs that stood out from the pack in terms of numbers of votes, and in fact only three votes have separated the winner from the runner-up!

Congratulations to our That '70s Custom! Comp Runner Up.....

NiteOwl's Tiger-Man!!!!

And a BIG Congratulations to our That '70s Custom! Comp WINNER.....

dozymuppet's Fastbak!!!!!!!

These customs will be the subject of this month's Custom Spotlight at the AFB Blog!

Stay tuned for a new custom challenge........!

A huge congratulations to Dozy and NO.  [rock]

Fastbak has such flawless paint and Tiger-Man has insane amounts of detailing.

Congrats too to our other entrants and I hope to see everyone back for the next one.

How about I send you the prize I got for last comp? We can start a tradition of sending it on to subsequent winners.

I thought the Women of the '80s idea was a very cool one!  [thumbs up]

I'd be down for that.

You know what, that would be a great idea!

Let me get back to you in a couple of days... How about "It's the 80's and AFB is down with the ladies" 8)

Maybe just to spoil the fun a little bit how about just the 80's don't want to scare people off by eliminating half the selection pool.

Oh, it'll be cheap to post  ;)

To be honest I think I'd rather just do the 60s. So many great characters....and costumes as bad as any other decade.

Actually, I think we should take this discussion (that I started) elsewhere as this thread is about Dozy and 'Owl's moment of awesomeness  8)

Post by: dozymuppet on June 01, 2011, 05:38:35 am
Oh OK...

But jeez that death list is depressing and amusing at the same time. Didn't realise how many characters were offed in Final Crisis.
