C.O.M.B.A.T. (Charitable Organization Mobile Battle Android Trooper)

Welcome to version 2 of OG13’s charity figure drive. This year, we will be donating all profits to a single OGer in need, who will be revealed at the end of this endeavour. 100% of the figures, accessories, casting, molds, paint, labels, money, and time came directly from our charity crew. This was 100% OGer funded and driven!

It’s my honor to present this year’s recipent of the 2014, umm, ish Charity Figure fund raising.

This gentleman is a great member of the OG13 family and a wonderful family man in real life as well. He is a customizer of many skills and leads one of our customs groups. Without going into detail of what happened to him, and just saying that when the discussions of who should we show our gratitude to and spread some cheer, one name came up first, often and was a easy decision for us.

We were going to present him this gift at Joecon but decided he could use the funds for Joecon expenses. We will be presenting him with the C.O.M.B.A.T. Charity figure, #1 of 50, during our time at this years Joecon.

So without any further rambling……..2014-ish Award goes to:

Miguel “Jpnx” Rios……..

Congratulations from us and thank you for being a part of our OG13 family!

Super Troopers 2 is officially a go thanks to the over $2 million in donations the film’s Indiegogo page has received just one day into its campaign.

Of course we’re not affiliated with Broken Lizard in any way, but I think the majority of us can agree that the first SUPERTROOPERS movie was pretty damn funny.

Good luck guys, can’t wait to see to see this hit the theaters.

The film currently has $2,016,658 in funds raised, and the numbers are still climbing.

Our good friends at AngelForge have let us know about an opportunity to help lift the spirits of a really, really great human being who has been a longstanding pillar of the community, and can really use some positivism in his life.

From XOC2008:

“You guys know Meddatron, and he’s had some major health things come up lately. I don’t want to say more than that, because it’s not my place, but I wanted to add that what we do I guarantee will be appreciated for a long time to come. And sure, he may see this post, so be it.

You guys have your charity thing, and this isn’t really that. Some of us at Angelforge and an the 118th (so far) are going in on a group project for Medd. It doesn’t have to be strictly customs, though a lot of us are working on stuff like that. If you want to participate, feel free to join AF’s forum if you haven’t, and come to the thread here: http://theangelforge.vbulletin.net/f…e-medd-project.

Even if you can’t actively participate but have some ideas that you might want to toss our way, we’d appreciate it. Thanks!

If you get a chance, click through the URL below and see if you are inspired. Meddatron is seriously one of the great ones.

From the workshop of Vanishing Point:

“Last year after Joecon I started a side project, it was to make my own versions of the repaint squads using different era, original and other media characters instead of straight repaints. TIGER FORCE. The result is as follows: Tiger Force and their Counterparts.”
