Welcome to CustomCon 30, the fifth installment to be hosted by TheFwoosh.com and ActionFigurePics.com!
What is CustomCon?
CustomCon is a special presentation of new custom toy creations by customizers around the globe. Ten 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, whereby 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.

X-Men, X-Men everywhere. Last winter it was Avengers, but Custom Con 30 is the year of the X-Men! It’s been killing me to hold some of these customs back (especially Colossus!) as I’m seen some killer versions of these characters lately. It was a blast making these X-Men, new, old, and supporting cast. Am I the only one that has trouble putting together coherent naratives for these entries?

Neither of these core groups have enough members for an entry of their own, so why not combine them! Since we already have an X-Factor Cyclops, I thought to myself, who would be a good stand in? Since Havok has made a living being a stand in for his older brother, he was a logical choice. And hey, he was in X-Factor too! I just finished reading both of these titles, and while they fizzled at the end, there were some great stories to be had along the way. Enjoy!
