SOTA will be giving you a shot at a one-of-a-kind collectible at the same time you’ll be helping the Haitian earthquake victims.
In lieu [sic] of the terrible events in Haiti, SOTA Toys has decided to auction a ONE-OFF “Lightning Blanka” prototype on eBay, with profits donated to the relief effort. This piece was made during the production of our regular Blanka statue, and is the only one of its kind in existence; a true collector’s piece. The auction will begin on Feb 1st, 2010. Stay tuned to our website for more information, or check back here!
I’m going to return to my traditional style write-up of talking about the individual customs, as there’s a bit of history and a little more complexity in how they were created. As a group, the interesting thing is how much time elapsed between finishing the customs and when I actually published them at CC24. It’s different for each figure. Shang Chi was essentially finished a year back or more. Iron Fist was the same, but I was adding some tweaks in the weeks leading up to CustomCon. And Steel Phoenix was finished the day he got posted, and in a rush, too.
I honestly thought about canning the entry when I put up Rust This World’s entry for Immortal Iron Fist and the Immortal Weapons, but I had been sitting on finished customs for Iron Fist and Shang Chi for so long that I just went for it.
