We've all got those fond memories, the toys we remember from our youth that to this day, are the logs in the nostalgia fire.PHX Customs
remembers them too, and starting Monday, we hope that you will tune in for our newest project, Retro Toy Chest
, where we celebrate toys we remember fondly that weren't named GI JOE.
For Custom Celebration X
, we have a new contest for everyone!
Make a custom of a toy (non GI Joe) that tickles your nostalgia bone! The contest will run from today, February 13th, to February 29th.
All entries must be received by midnight on the last day (Feb. 29th), via email. You can email any member of PHX Customs
. Winners will be revealed the first week of March!Rules:
The only "rule" is, much like a gallery entry, there has to be a GI JOE part in there, any Joe format is welcome (anythng from 1964-now). The custom must be NEW, and hasn't been seen before (no customs you made in the last year or what not).
Use your imagination! The contest isn't about the prettiest paint job, it's about the creativity of everyone participating. We ask that you include a reference picture in your submission email, as there are so many properties to chose from, that some might be unknown to everyone.
Other than that, go wild, and help us party on with Custom Celebration X!!!!
*After much discussion and back and forth, PHX is excited to announce the Winner!DanoftheDead!!
Danofthedead, yours and everyone else prize packages are in the mail, or will be shortly! Want to see what they made? We asked each entry to post up in critiques, to help generate traffic. If you are curious to see what was made, give a lookie loo into the critiques forum and leave a message for the customizer!
The contest was fun for us, and we couldn't decide on anything past the 1st spot, so everyone else is getting goodies too. I've never had a tougher time judging in any of the contests I've been apart of throughout the years as this one. Each one stood out on it's own as being "totally radical" (insert Retro sound effect here)!
Thanks everyone for participating, and following along.
See you in Brazil this June
