CustomCon 36 – Winter 2013
Welcome to CustomCon 36, hosted by ActionFigurePics.com, in conjunction with Raving Toy Maniac and JoeAcevedo.com!
What is CustomCon?
CustomCon is a special presentation of new custom toy creations by customizers around the globe. Thirteen 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 35 CustomCons, including the CustomCon entries that have been featured here at AFP.

After Mattel announced the cancellation of 2014 DCIE series that included 2 versions of Doomsday figure, I felt regret about not being able to see the long awaited figure released. Then just last week, I found out Mattel has decided to release only Containment Suit Doomsday in the next SDCC. Relinquishing a hope to see THE UNLEASHED VERSION, I decided to make my own doomsday that shares the same articulations and details to some degree with DCUC figures. The only base body that I could find compatible in terms of size and similar physical features was Marvel Select Avengers Hulk. Before I began putting things together, I had to research various images and old custom figures done by others as a reference.

For the most part, I’d rather just see pictures and read reviews about toys, so I rarely watch un-boxing videos. In the case of the Masters of the Universe Classics Castle Grayskull, its arrival at the end of last week felt like an event. And with the box being so big, it just felt right to snap pictures throughout the process of opening the outer box, inner box, and then the Castle itself. I also took a few shots of the parts and assembly, and then a couple more for fun.
Hopefully, if you’re still waiting for your Castle Grayskull, this will give you some flavor of what’s heading your way. By the power of Grayskull…
