{View thread to see attached file}

In honor of all those who take their brawl to the biggest, we're announcing a vehicle custom contest:
Red, White, BOOM!
Take any GI Joe vehicle and glitz it up for Uncle Sam. Make Captain America proud. Let's see those stars and stripes.

All entries are due Sunday, July 26th at 11:59pm PST. Please send at least 3-6 pictures of your custom, a short bio/description, and your screen name to projects@joecustoms.com with "Red White & Boom" in the subject line.

On the 27th, we'll open a poll on the forum to decide who will be taking home a SDCC 2015 50th Crimson Strike set from Hasbro as seen here.

NJC #85 Dr. Bindy's Cantina | July 02, 2015
Posted by: Dusty79

You know those awesome Cantina dio stories drbindy has been doing? Have you ever wanted to contribute to those? I know I have and here is our chance. The idea here is to create a character you imagine strolling into the Cantina or recreate an existing character from the Cantina. You can make an alter ego of yourself, a self custom, a custom of another Joecustoms board member or an entirely new character altogether with no Joecustoms influence. The field is pretty open here for your imagination to run wild. The only rule is that is has to be an original character, meaning no Star Wars, Marvel, Nintendo, etc. Existing characters from drbindy's stories do count as original and can be redone. So if you want to make a Knighthawk, Lance Sputnik, or JM70 for example, go right ahead. I have talked to drbindy and recipes and characters put forward in this challenge may be remade by him for inclusion in future episodes.

Go ahead and refresh your memory on the Cantina series here:

And get painting, cutting, sanding, and gluing. Good Luck.

Due date for submissions is 12:00pm EST, August 31, 2015

Send all submissions to projects@joecustoms.com
