a.k.a. Custom Toy Fair 99
The basic plan was to follow the format of most Internet Toy Sites
that do coverage of the American International Toy Fair for all those action figures
made by the companies that we know and love. We will do our best to assemble
realistic toy lines, as the toy companies do. An example could be the following:
Thunderbolts (current ToyBiz 5 figure format) which would contain: Baron Zemo,
Citizen V, Meteorite, Atlas/Jolt 2-pack, and Mach-1/Songbird 2-pack.
The assortments and characters were obviously negotiable. If enough characters
were made, we have created multiple series of figures (just like the "real" toy
makers, get the trend?). The idea was to make our own Toy Fair and see how it
compares to the "real" Toy Fair (you know? for kicks!). Each day,
maybe 2 or 3 new assortments will go up. Next year we can even do the Pre-Toy Fair
stuff, just like the "real" toy makers. I'm getting tired of saying that phrase, so
I think I'll stop.
There is no limit to the number of figures that can be submitted, which lead to abnormal
amounts of figures created by each participant! Below you can get some ideas to work
with and for, and you can get an idea of projects to join up on with other people.
If you have another idea, please ask me about it,
and we'll do our best to get it up there so others can join.
The deadline was March 5, 1999 (Friday), and the first project page went up the
following Monday, March 8, 1999.
It works like a series of group projects that are revealed for the first time. All
the photos are kept a secret ('cept from me and my helpers) until they are revealed on the
CustomCon International page (then of course they revert to their owners and can be placed
wherever they please).
