    Not really. Probably 1/3 of my collection was purchased on Ebay, the rest were commissions directly from the customizer (and a very small amount done myself).


    Thanks guys. Pretty soon I'll also have a couple of Devastators, an Omega Supreme and (down the road, in the planning stages right now) a fully articulated G1 Fortress Maximus. And maybe a few more surprise MP figures. :wink:

    payton, I forgot to ask you: you've got several pieces listed, but not the artists. Could you give a rundown of the customs you own with their artists?

    The ones without artist names are the ones I got from Ebay. I went back and corrected what I could, but some of them are either (1) at least a year old so I don't remember and they're not in the database, or (2) were bought just long ago that it's outside the cutoff for clicking the "view item" option.

    I tried, though.

    Scads more already on the way (Search for me in Radicons right now and you'll see me patron'ing a good number of the WIP threads...), but this is a sampling of what's in house and in-hand

    The Tom_Servo collection:
    Kup (JUST got him yesterday so no in-house shots yet)

    Fallen (My bad-angle photo doing him NO justice)

    Rumble619's Bugs
    At his place

    And in mine

    And hanging in my "Warriors from another Universe" shelf
    [​IMG]

    And finally, for now, the "Stolen by Customs -Not the Radicon Kind- Edition" Sabby's Deepcover :( 

    [​IMG]

    Can't wait to get all my other "in transit" and "WIP" babies in though!

    I'm pretty sure he's desk-candy for an amoral transfan at JFK by this point :/

    Sabby's working on his Red-Mirage counterpart now, which hopefully WILL arrive, and then we're going to try Deepcover (again...)

    But yes, I've been really enjoying sampling the work of all the amazing artists 'round these parts!

    I just heard that Xaviercal's Artfire is about done, can't wait to see him!

    LOL.

    Knowing what's coming in a month or so, you'll probably downright hate me. :D

    Did you win the lottery or something, payton? I can't see how else you can have the money for all those unique customs!

    Unless you are living on bread and water, then that might be plausible...

    Guys, everyone needs to be attaching their images in this thread. Also, please be considerate when you make your photos. Huge sizes can be cumbersome, especially to those who have slower connections. :thumb 

    Nah, but:

    We're all guessing this. :lol

    I haven't transformed it, but yeah there are flaws here and there. There's a major flaw on the side of the right arm (where you would normally flip the piece out that the gun attaches to, the side of the arm that normally rests underneath that piece has an unchromed spot about the size of a dime).

    To be honest, I had so much trouble just receiving the thing, I'm not going to mess with shipping it back. I can deal with it as-is.


    :lol 

    Nah, if you've ever seen me in person, you'll know damn well that my diet consists of a bit more than bread and water, lol.

    FYI, I'm the CFO of a cellular wireless chain and my wife is a CPA for an accounting firm, so no bread & water for us (although the occasional bag of Ramen noodles finds it's way into our bowls).
