Honorable Mentions: I WANT TO THANK figurerealm.com AND MY PEERS FOR VOTING MY CUSTOM "VENOM: THE UNGODLY AWAKENING" AS CUSTOM OF THE YEAR FOR 2011!!! I HAD NO IDEA! I'M HONORED AND HUMBLED! G2G!!!!
I was contacted by TOYFARE for a custom submission, right before they quit the magazine...lol! IMAGINE THAT
Comments: My actual first custom was in '92, I did a custom of character that I created, which was later destroyed in a domestic dispute(lol)! Comic books and collecting action figures helped get me divorced(guys, marry a woman that likes or can tolerate it). After that I had extra money to feed my collecting habit and from '98 to the present had built an extensive collection of figures and also my truck driving job allowed for time for working on my old hobby of customizing while I was parked and getting unloaded or loaded. I mainly like doing old school figures in their old costumes. But, sometimes I will take a challenge if I feel like it.
A little about me, I am 42 and was an over the road truck driver(freight relocation specialist, until May 27th, 2011 when I quit and started customizing full-time trying to make it. My new wife encouraged me to get off the road and give my dreams a try. I like riding my '04 harley-davidson springer softail with the wife when I have free time, and me and our 3 kids always seem to find time for a game of HALO multiplayer. Halo one, Prisoner, nothing but rockets! Halo 3 we like Sandbox, nothing but rockets, juggernaut version! Got married October 30th, 2010. I was dressed as Spider-man and she was Supergirl! Batgirl, Spidergirl and The Joker was the kids. I saw a pirate, gypsy, cleopatra, morticia vampiress, hippies, 3 musketeers, fred, wilma and pebbles, a nun, 2 indian squaws, master chief, wolverine, robin, heavy metal rocker and groupie, a geisha, 20's flapper, raggedy ann, zombie, cowgirl, sexy devils, just to name a few of the characters at the wedding. It was beautiful. I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour since October 1993, even though I'm not the best example to be following as a christian. I am a believer and I don't hold anyones beliefs against them. That's a freewill thing that we all are endowed with. IF ANYONE IS CURIOUS AS TO WHY I DON'T CRITIQUE OR CRITICIZE OTHERS CUSTOMS, IT'S BECAUSE I SEE ALL CUSTOM FIGURES AS A UNIQUE INDIVIUAL CREATION AND IT'S NOT UP TO US TO BE NITPICKING ON OTHERS WAYS OF DOING STUFF. IF WE ALL USED THE SAME HEADS, BODIES AND PARTS AND PAINTED THE EXACT SAME WAY TO MAKE A CUSTOM FIGURE, THEN IS IT REALLY A CUSTOM?? IF ANYONE REALLY WANTS MY OPINION TO CRITIQUE THEIR CUSTOM AND TELL WHAT I SEE WITHOUT BEING MEAN SPIRITED, BUT GIVING AN HONEST CRITIQUE, I WOULD DO THAT TO HELP YOU PROGRESS IN THE HOBBY. JUST ASK ME. THANK YOU YOU ALL, ESPECIALLY IF YOU READ ALL OF THIS!
