Ok,from the top.

Dozy,you manged to pick all the trickiest colours of all to work with.For that alone you have my admiration.Excellent Masking resulting in tight lines.I reckon you have chosen the perfect Base too,awesome!

TT,i can't believe you Flocked a Figure!That's some serious dedication and musta been a hell of a challenge.Loving the Eyes and this really looks like a piece from a retro Toyline.Congrats!

Jack,so nice to see someone have a crack at dear old Granny.Perfect Head choice and very clever sculpting over a more or less Blank Figure.Love the Scale work and you've ripped off the essence of her perfectly.I like it!

Niteowl,a character way out of left field.I'm still not sure what you mean by the Face"collapsed",but you really have seamlessly added a very tricky Head.The shading and highlighting of the Paints are perfect IMO and that Stripework is off the charts.Damned clever piece.


AQ,i actually dig this Cossie for Zee more than her Perez one.Has never got enough attention so i'm glad to see her getting some love.You nailed the Colours without a doubt and the PG Body works better than i thought it would.Great work!

FMS,the Hair is perfect and i love how you got the Ears just right.Slick Paints that i come to expect from you every time.Perfect representation going on your reference pics.Hellfire pic is interesting,looks like he's making some Toast over the Campfire.Awesome work!


Thank you to you all,quality work by every one of you.Congrats!

It's a shame that not everyone was able to get their entries in. There a few notable notables missing aside from Andy, FS, FB and Talon. Stars? RK?

Yep, a shame we didn't get a higher turnout, but "life" does have a way of intervening!

Thankfully we have some brilliant entries to choose a winner from!

Guys, you bring the A game, every time. Awesome work everyone, I mean really? Flocking? Bright yellow? Tiger Faces? Grannys on crack (or whatever that meant)? Guys, you are great. I'm glad I didn't send a half-baked custom.  runaway.gif

It's a tough one for whoever is choosing the winner IMHO. I do think that the standout has to be TotalToyz here though. Everyone has done an amazing job with colors and sculpting original parts and heads. However to go the extra mile and not just flock but then manage to replicate slime on top of the flocking so flawlessly has to win out on technical points as going well and truly above and beyond the other entries. That's not to say that the other entries aren't amazing, because honestly, they all look like they've been bought in a store.

Just think of me as the anti-Santa Claus- I show up several timed a year with toys I keep for myself.

What a stunning spread of character choices! I was actually wondering if there would be any duplication.....but not even close!

Such a fantastic effort guys! Well done!


ps. I knew Talon, Freak and FB were out, but Stars?

pps. Is it the same as last year where we allocate 3, 2, and 1 point for our three favourites?
