That might be a good way to increase traffic around here. Have a custo. contest each month ?
I mean, i know Oreobuilder's gonna win first place every time, but people could still compete for second. LOL

I haven't customized anything in months but I wouldn't mind seeing something new from others.

I tried my hand at custoing a few months ago. I was good at applying paint with spraybomb's on the vehicles. But i was REALLY, REALLY bad at painting the figures.

What kinda paint do you custom guy's use on your figures anyway ?   I was using model paint and it S**KED HARD!

Since i have seen Oreo's take on the original 12'' joes in 4'' scale i have been dying to find someone or some way of making my very own PLATOON figures in 4'' scale.

If i really wanted to i could invest 500$ and get the HOTTOYS Sgt. Barns and Chris Taylor figures. Sure hottoys is eventually going to come out with the Sgt. Elias ( Wilem Dafoe ) and Four Lener ( Johnny Depp ). But still thats only 4 characters. When really there so, so many other characters to add to that platoon of figure.

King was a central character that has to get made. ( Basically a Roadblock with a little tweaking )
Bunny is another colorful character.
Jr.
Big Harold ( Forest Whitaker )
Rhah ( Have to have his walking stick with barbed wire )
And how can we forget the guy who doesn't wanna be there at all, the ultimate suck up to Barns, Mr. John McGinley as Sgt O'Neil...
And they gotta fight somebody, right ? Gotta make a few Vietcong to go along with'em.

I'd be willing to drop some serious coin if anybody out there can make this happen.

the only custom i ever made was an LBC parts swap. I actually have plans to do a few others, which would be exactly the same: parts swaps.

Lets have our 2 best custom makers go at it. Round 1 Custom Face Off Challenge: Martin-Montreal VS. Oreobuilder.

You think Oreo would accept ?

And knowing is half the hassle! I actually meant "chip proof" instead of "paintjob" :D
