JCA 2016 Final Ballot | February 24, 2017
Posted by: pluv

Scroll down to access the Google docs ballot embedded in the page. This year we were able to provide preview pics in the ballot to make deciding a little bit easier. I dropped any 5th place vote getters if there were more than 2 tied for it. There was one category where keeping all of them would have meant deciding between a dozen finalists and another where it would have been 9. In other categories there were two clear front runners and then several tied for 3rd. So if you see some categories where there are only 4 finalists and some with 6 or 7 that is what was going on.

Voting ends Friday, March 3rd at 11:59 PM (midnight) Pacific Standard Time.

Good luck to everyone.

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):

NJC #94: Wrasslin! | December 30, 2016
Posted by: HypnoHustler

What can I say, I've been on a kick lately. For NJC #94 any wrestler, real or fictional, former or current is up for grabs. Want to add some more WWF icons to your 4in collection, get to painting! Have a hole in your life that can only be filled by D-Man? I understand brother. Just want to update your old JCW doppleganger? That's cool too. Climb into the ring and we'll see who grabs the title and who taps out of the NJC #94 royal rumble!

Edit: Deadline 02/27, 12:00pm (noon) Eastern.

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!
