SPECIAL REPORT: NJCC Boss Fight Studio interview | March 13, 2017
Posted by: pluv

Dan aka The Spectre interviewed Dave Proctor from Boss Fight Studio at the New Jersey Collectors Con. Rather than hold off from releasing this until we got a full show recorded and edited (considering how long the last one took), we thought a shorter mini episode would be better for this. Only 6 minutes long.

NJC #95 Penny Dreadful | March 04, 2017
Posted by: pluv

Penny Dreadful - Characters that would have been alive in the late 1800's through the early 1900's who would have been sought out to hunt monsters or were monsters. They do not have to be show specific. Think League of Extraordinary Gentlemen for examples of characters that fit.

Group Project Super Joe Cart description and due date | February 21, 2017
Posted by: pluv

Pretty straight forward, your favorite Joe mythos character driving a go kart. Of course, Mario Kart is a reference here; I want these vehicles to scream "Snake Eye," "Serpentor," "Cobra Commander," etc. without having to read the information.

No claiming needs to happen, and I think allowing the max of three works too. I think that any Joe related faction is fine, and I had even thought that a custom figure could be made for the kart if desired.

Each kart, of course, should be a small, one manned vehicle. The original idea came from this:
download/file.php?id=37892&t=1
So that should give people a good idea.

I also found some great karts from other genres (mostly done in Lego/brick form, but mainly for the ideas):

Joecustoms.com Auction 2017! Update: **NEW AUCTIONS** | November 26, 2016
Posted by: bucky

http://www.ebay.com/sch/cobraprime/m.ht ... 7675.l2562



:shifty: We've got plans, people. Plans and ideas, and this year we want to implement them!

First and foremost:
The year is now 2017, but our front page still lives in 2003. It's time to bring it up to date!

The staff at joecustoms has been looking for ways to upgrade the site, and the starting point for all things joecustoms should be the front page, with links to the wiki, the forums, contests/events, group projects, and most importantly, customs.

Pictures of customs, not just links. Sounds simple and easy, right?

Well, kind of. It costs some money to do this kind of stuff, and as a non profit website, we rely on ourselves to keep the lights on, so to speak. The cost of the redesign is an issue we have been looking at over the last couple of years, and we'd like to raise the money in a fun, "customized" sort of way.

So, we need some volunteers. We are looking for customizers that are willing to make a custom, or sell a current custom that is done, with proceeds going directly to the site. The volunteer sign up will be due by Saturday, December 10th.

Here's how it will work:
If you volunteer to make a custom or throw one in, you must have it mailed to Bucky no later than January 28th of next year. At that time, Bucky will photograph each custom, and each custom will go up on eBay, with credit for the figure going to the creator of course.
Example: "GI JOE Custom Red Laser by Bucky".

The auctions will start on the first day of Custom Celebration 11, February 12th, and last for a week. The auctions will be heavily featured on the site, Facebook, and wherever/whoever else we can promote them to generate the most amount for the site redesign.
The figures will then be mailed out to the winners by Bucky the following week, assuming the winners of the auction pay.

ALL PROCEEDS GO DIRECTLY TO JOECUSTOMS.COM!

*the end game goal is around $1500.
The first step will be to take care of the front page, any remaining funds will go towards things such as, but not limited to:
-a new banner for the Joecustoms table!
-classes/kits to be scheduled for Assembly Required 2017!
-prizes/awards for Custom Celebration contests/participation!
-hair transplants for Bucky! :hasbronerd: A horse mask for joemichaels! :deadhorse: A smile for Chief! :chiefty:

Ok, that last line was just to make sure you were paying attention.

So, are you ready to Help us, help you? Sign up today by PM'ing bucky with your info, and he will add you to the list!!

-and that's an order!
