Does being a hard core TF fan,mean you need to buy/create custom TF Toys? Technically,I consider all those 3rd party TF toys as custom made TF toys. as their made by fans for fans. with a low spending budget & low volume units per toy. Yes? No? Whether it be buying 3rd party TF toys. whether it be buying from ebay/internet, customized/kitbashed/painted/dyed TF toys that someone else did & you merely bought it. whether it be adding a few extra paint apps yourself. Whether it be buying a few repro sticker labels & applying it to a toy. Whether it be buying rit color dye. then dying a few plastic TF toy pieces in preferred colors. Buying a few hobby paints & painting your TF toys. going into a hobby shop & buying a molding kit to cast plastic parts from a TF toy.
