So, you remember Jim Magee, the guy who customized the awesome Android figure? This little fella that ended up at Stone Robot Enterprises with me and fairyarmadillo?
Well, Jim's been hard at work and he now has a place where you can buy his customs.
I mean, the Tankdroid has already sold...
...but there's a fully-armed robot...
...a custom Bambaboss that's he's turned into something awesome...
...and even a delightfully modded Super Sucklord Gay Empire figure to whom he gave a full sexy dancer look. Yes, that's a tease to make you go look. :P
And you know what? The more things sell, the closer we may be to seeing something like this up there....
And you don't want to miss THAT boat.
Go check 'em out and keep up with his work over on Flickr.
So I was randomly poking around Flickr one day and I saw this:
And I was all "HOLY FUCKING SHIT THAT IS AWESOME." Not just because I love my Droid phone and the Android system's little mascot, but also because "HOLY FUCKING SHIT THAT IS AWESOME."
I dropped the fellow a line about how sweet this Android custom is, and he told me that it was his first custom ever. Look at that thing again. That was his first custom and this is what they look like au natural:
Jim and I continued to converse and then...well, he decided that he needed to send it to me. For free.
To quote The Judge, "THIS WILL NOT DO!"
A bit of cross-Atlantic talking--mostly me telling him that his stuff is too good to not be SOLD to people--and we arrived at a price that was pleasing to both of us. He then told me that he would only take out the cost of the Droid figure and donate the rest of the money to Shelter.
Yeah, you go ahead and read that last sentence again.
NOW...I don't think that sort of scenario is ever going to happen again, because now I'm here to plug his work so that he can have a bit of supplemental income for what he describes as just a hobby. And you're going to help me out, yes?
He has never done a commission before, but look at his stuff. He has some non-rust customs that will be up soon, since he's branching out from his current streak of customizing Ashley Wood designs.
I'll keep you updated, but in the mean time, tell your friends about this awesome customizer you heard about, one who is modest and generous...and who needs to start making some reasonable money off of his creations.
And now, a small story about my new Droid, which arrived yesterday. :D
"Somebody said there was some juice for my batteries over here...."
His story continues after this cut:
( LOOK OUT, DROID! That stuff is for adults! HUMAN adults! )
Go dig Jim's stuff, tell people about Jim's stuff, and then get back to work, slackers.
My newest toy acquisition, which barely beats out POWER: Superior-Powered Thunderbolt Overlord Top King as the best bootleg/knockoff that I own. Click the pic for shots of the other sides of the box, which never actually say Superman. :D
So, you know fairyarmadillo , right? She and her husband dr_beep ? The ones who changed their married names to Robot?
Nadja sent me one of the best things ever in the history of ever ever.
Here is a video--poorly lit, as usual, since it's just being filmed with a digital camera--video that she requested, namely of me opening the box.
I was having a weird Tourette's night, so that should also be fun for you. Maybe a seven out of ten intensity? Six?
( GLORIOUS PICS OF THE ITEM BEHIND THIS CUT! YOU MUST LOOK AT IT! )
You see what I mean now?
I have the best friends that ever was best friends.
You remember the
Well, I just got this from Matthew, when I asked if he could buy out their stock for me:
"There were 7 POWER figurines. However, I cannot guarantee that all of the glowing red 3rd nipples work on all of them. I will send them in a box. If the postman can make it through the blizzard"
What does this mean to all of you?
It means that, after probably pulling out a few for myself or friends, I will have at least a few figures for you to fight over.
Then it will be time for...

OVERLORD TOP KING ACTION FIGURE CONTEST!!!
