*** The contest is now LIVE! Get your submissions in by November 15th, HERE! ***

Custom Legends are back, baby! That’s right, your favorite quarterly Customs Contests have returned after a brief hiatus due to the untimely retiring of this contest’s founder, the unholy Byrnes. Now, ozzie92 has taken the reigns and dedicated the theme of this quarter’s contest, The Masters of Mayhem, to the big man himself!

Based on “About Byrnes” from his profile:

“I enjoy customizing figures from the Sci-Fi world such as Buck Rogers, Star Trek, Star Wars, Bladerunner, Mad Max and so on. Not really a GI Joe expert. Was into the toys when I was a kid in 82 and 83. Got hooked again on the 25th stuff.”

3rd Quarter’s Master of Mayhem contest will be calling for crossovers of Joes into alternate–but established–sci-fi universes and/or alternate–but established–sci-fi characters merging into Joe sub-groups (ex: BATS in Battlestar Galactica…Buck Rogers in Star Brigade).

  • ANY size action figure is allowed!
  • Each member will be allowed a maximum of 2 submissions per quarterly contest.
  • Must be new figure never posted anywhere else and no WIP photos are allowed.

Winner will receive a digital trophy and $25 Credit from Star Wars Geek Custom Supply Store!

The Syndicate Customs’ own ska_lives and TheVP are your co-hosts for the latest customs contest here at the O-G-1-3… April Annihilation is a themed contest, that will see entries battle it out in a single elimination “battle”, with the sole winner taking it all!

Reminder: You have ONE week left to get your entries into this competition. Entries must be received BEFORE 03/31, so have them in by Sunday night at the latest!

From the desk of ska_lives:

“An as of yet unnamed omnipotent entity has put together the greatest battle in the solar system. After scouring the nearby planets of this solar system, it has found only one inhabited planet, Earth. Slightly disappointed by the singular life sustaining planet, it continues with its plans, and transports 16 of the greatest and most dangerous individuals on Earth. The individuals come from a variety of backgrounds from military to criminal, each bringing to the table their own skill set and situational versatility. The battle takes place on a neutral planetoid far outside the solar system of the Earth, and the combatants know not what is in store. They are only told that the winner shall be showered with untold riches and accolades, and if they so wish it be transported back to their planet.”

“Who will win? What will they do with this victory? Could the Entity have some other plan up its sleeve…”

“Well, so it’s been a while since I’ve given some stuff away, so let’s get to it!

Winner of this drawing will receive a grab bag style mix of Hot Wheels! I’ve dug out some of those popular castings from the past year or two that were a headache to find, and tossed em in this lot. Also a few matchbox cars for good measure.

So what so you have to do to be eligible? Easy, be a member here, and post in this thread what your favorite casting has been in recent years. Talk about which ones you’ve had trouble finding, which ones you’d like to see Mattel do in the future, etc. All things hot wheels or matchbox are fair game.

I will draw from a list of all eligible members next Tuesday evening (December 17) and hopefully, ship the prize pack by Wednesday. Any questions, just ask!”

“Hero vs. Villians, Joe vs. Cobra, Autobots vs. Decepticons, Jedi vs. Sith, Acting skills vs. Channing Tatum… Snake Eyes vs. Storm Shadow, Batman vs. The Joker, Optimus Prime vs. Megatron, tom vs jerry, Wolverine vs. well…pretty much anyone in the Marvel Universe. The theme of good vs. evil is not a new one and has been prevalent since the beginning of time.

Icecreamman and myself want to give our fellow OGers the incentive to showcase your view of “The Versus”…how else…by playing with your toys.

This is actually two contests

Both are due by 11:59pm of October 31st, 2013 with public voting following the next couple of days

Both have a cash prize of $40 to the winner and $10 to the runner up.

You can have two entries per contest.

Contest 1: The custom contest

Customize two archenemies and post 3 pictures of them in this thread with a plainish background. Any genre will work as long as they hate each other.

Customs must be a new custom never have being displayed before.

There is no scale limitations…4in, 6 in ,12in, whatever rocks your boat.

Contest 2: The one shot picture contest

We have some sick talent when it comes to photography and editing skills on this site and this is your chance to showcase them

Same as before the subjects have to be arch enemies, any scale, any figure (retail, old customs, new customs, whatever)

The purpose of this contest is the picture. Give it a dio backdrop, photoshop it, do whatever you want just make it look good!

Any questions feel free to ask, we look forward to seeing what you come up with…good luck and have fun!”

From the bar stool of kwobubba:

So it’s been a while since I’ve done a contest, so I decided to get off my ass and make it happen! One of my favorite years in the ARAH line was 1989. There were some great figures released that year… but the most kickass stuff in the line was the new vipers. I’m of course talking about Alley Viper, Night Viper, Frag Viper, and Heat Viper. These 4, I remember thinking, are the baddest ass cobra figures I’d ever laid my 8 year old eyes upon. To this day, hasbro has never designed a viper that I thought looked as cool as these.

So what’s this contest about? Well, simply to discuss 1989. What were your favorites? Which ones do you want to see modernized? Discuss it [HERE]. That’s all you have to do to be eligible. The contest will end next Wednesday, Sepember 25th. All members are eligible. Once the contest ends, I will put all names in a hat, and draw the winner. Prize will ship within a week of the drawing. But what’s the prize you ask? Well, it’s these two guys. Both these members of the class of ’89 were only recently brought into the modern era, one by our friends at the club, and the other by hasbro after a long nap in the concept vault. Here they are:
