What is CustomCon?

CustomCon is a special presentation of new custom toy creations by customizers around the globe. Fifteen years in the running, it’s still going strong. Inspired by the presentations of new product by legitimate manufacturers at Toy Fair and other trade shows, CustomCon is a “fake” convention, wherein customizers present their latest creations and recipes as if unveiling a new line of real toys to retailers. It’s always a lot of fun for both the viewers and the participants.

If this is your first exposure to a CustomCon, check out what’s been offered over the past 42 CustomCons, including the CustomCon entries that have been featured here at AFP.

CC40: Marvel Legends True Believers’ SHIELD 3-Pack by GrownNerd

Shield 1a

That doofus known as GrownNerd may not know what’s up in general, but he’s a long time nerd so he’s down with what nerds want. And what do you want?

You want a classic cigar chomping gun toting jet pack accessory flying Nick Fury, not long coat wearing Ultimate Snakes on the M*****F***ing Plane Fury.

You want a middle aged Dum Dum Dugan that has a belly not unlike your own stout but firm abdomen, not that young Adonis shaped pretty boy from the Twin Packs.

You want a Russian sexpot Black Widow with assets gratuitously displayed, not that disappointingly PG rated movie Natasha with straps and zippers everywhere but all of them strapped and zipped.

So here is a SHIELD 3-pack, for nerds, by a nerd.
