To interested customizers I’m currently work on doing a custom showcase month that I’m going to be reviewing several customs that will all be put online in july or august. Sense I’ve enjoyed doing this project so much and I wanted to continue to do it again next year, but I felt like the customs could serve a better purpose than just adding to my collection. So as I’ve begun planning for next years and with next year, I will still be doing a review of each custom for the month giving general reviews and information on the customizers, but after the completion of the reviews showing the customizers work all, but one will be going to several charity auctions. The charities I’ve select are each charities that have effected my life in the past. My family was effected very heavily when I was younger by a car accident. After which left my sister paralyzed and bed ridden. During her long months in the hospital the Ronald McDonald house gave my father and myself a place to stay close to the hospital my sister was in due to it being several hours form our home. Latter on the Make a wish granted her a wish. Because of these situations I’ve selected these two charities to do for the first auctions in the custom month and have selected themes that I believe will generate interest in the collectors community as well as relate to the causes in some way. The final theme is just something I felt would be fun for the customizers, viewers and myself. Theme 1(days 1-10) Shattered glass- the auction will go to make a wish(putting pieces back together) Theme 2( days 11-20) G2 Redux - Auction going to the Ronald McDonald house charity(ronald mcdonald and g2 made sense to me). This theme is the same as Botcon 2010, but also can include classic style RID characters like sky bite and sideburn are for FunPub The theme 3(days 21-25) is going to be a originality contest/voting event- each customizer participating in this can do anything they want and think would be interesting and original, providing I can fund it or if it is donated . From there A review will be up each day for each custom, the more intricate the design the longer the review After all 5 reviews have aired a poll will be put up on either tfw2005 or procustomizers, for those who have watched the reviews to vote on the one they think is best/most original After the winner is picked that will be the one custom I will keep(mainly as a momento from the event). The designer of the winning custom will then be given a trophy as well the customs that were not victorious will go up for a final charity auction with the proceeds going to the charity of the winners choice in there name. If you have any interest in participating please let me know any of the following information. Which theme(s) you would like to participate in. What customs you want to create What parts/transformers you will need to make them, I would like to help the customizers find parts if I can. Prices Finally the amount of the proceeds going to the charities I would like to be 100 percent however due to the generally high cost of having custom work done, I don’t believe I can do that so I currently intend on having it be all the proceeds after I exceed at least half or 75 percent of the expenses of the custom work being done. This number will not include base figure cost. And is depended on how large of a project the 5 customizes wish to do for the contest portion. My hope is to be able to have as much as humanly possible go towards the three charities, would love to do 100 percent, but i also don't want those who compete in theme three to be doing original work complete free of charge. Also any donated customs for the project would be much appreciated(would prefer if this was mainly themes 1 and 2), and the more that are just donated the more that will go directly to the charities, sense as of now, even though I want to do a full 25 its going to begin to get very costly.
