Hi folks!

As most of you know, JC has a traveling convention display that we put out at various conventions (really just JoeCon & AR) -- it consists of a banner, a couple of spice-rack-type shelves, and metric ton of donated customs.
The idea for the table came from us wanting to showcase our hobby, and was met with apprehension and suspicion by con-throwers, who didn't know what to do with us since we were 'display only' and not vendors. The rise and acceptance of Joe DeClassified really helped people understand the 'museum' aspect of what we were trying to do. Most of the customs on display in those early years were donated by beav (who was moving to Scotland and wanted to divest himself of them, yet keep them in the family) and consisted of variations of Shipwreck. Now, 10-ish years after our first convention, we have had additional customs donated to the traveling showcase. Actually, too many donations...

One of the things we like to do when we set up for a show is to leave some open space for JC members attending to put some of their customs on the table, even if only for the duration of the convention -- it gives con-goers, and us, something new to look at and talk about. What we've found over the last year or two is, that to leave space, we've had to leave customs in the box. And the box has a finite amount of room.

We have too many customs.

So, in true JC fashion, we're going to be having a series of polls. We're looking to trim the number of traveling customs, and we want the members of JC to determine which ones best showcase what we do. Not necessarily the 'best' or most 'popular' customs, but a variety of styles, builds, talent levels, fodder, etc., to give the best 'impression' of what JoeCustoms is.

HypnoHustler has graciously offered to photograph every custom in the box and set up a handful of polls on google for us to vote on. We are doing them in batches of 20-something. Our shelves hold 24 customs each without crowding. We will take the top 12 of every batch and keep them in the case (interestingly enough, the figure storage cases also hold 12 figures.) The figures that are not chosen to be included in the traveling display will be offered back to their creators for the cost of shipping, or have the option (default) of being put in the JoeCustoms 'Celebrate The Site' eBay auction next spring, with the proceeds going towards JoeCustoms' Front Page and other future endeavors. That being said, if you find one of your donated customs in the poll, and would like it removed, please just let us know via pm.

All that out of the way, here was the first batch: DISPLAY GROUP ONE

Here was the second batch: DISPLAY GROUP 2

Here was the third batch: DISPLAY GROUP 3

The fourth and final poll: DISPLAY GROUP 4

Go Vote!

Given how many characters there are in the JOEverse, why are there so many Shipwreck customs in this?

Not disputing the time and effort and result of the customizers that contributed to this Custom Display.

I mean, we complain every time a new wave is released with yet another Duke, Snake-Eyes, and Cobra Commander that takes away from another figure that could have been included.

Am I missing something? Being legit here...

Those Shipwreck customs are from beav's collection. People sent them to beav, or there was a contest on the site or something (pluv?) and when beav moved to Scotland he donated them to the site for use in our traveling table display. It was a pretty awesome thing to behold that first year with ALL the Shipwreck customs displayed together. In the years since, there have been so many additions that the Shipwreck theme has been diluted.

Not that I'm aware of. Hypno had talked of doing something, I'll reach out to him -

if a bunch of the shippy customs get dropped maybe you could make more $$$ selling them as a lot.

There is a post on the JC Facebook page with the results. I wanted to get something up here, but photobucket was acting up. I'll find some alternative means to get the results up here, even if only in text form. In the meantime, you should be able to go to the round 1 poll and view the overall votes.
