My 15 Minutes of Fame

Postby ToymakerB » Wed Nov 29, 2006 1:01 pm

Just wanted to let everyone know that One of my customs Gambit as "Death" Has made into the pages of Toyfare. Issue #113 on stands now. Every month Toyfare Magazine has a section called Homemade Hero, and showcases Different Customizers. Hopefully there will be more Customizers from Figurerealm featured in the future. If I did it, anyone can .If you would like the chance to have your custom featured, Send your custom photos to Homemade heros, c/o Toyfare,151 Wells Ave. Congers, N.Y. 10920.

OH!!! so that's how you get in. I thought some ToyFare staffers just randomly searched eBay and sent people emails.

And so the Doc proclaimeth:

Let it be known Gambit's jacket is mine and was lent to TMB to finish his awesome custom - the point being Dr Nightmare now has a legitimate right to claim in his customs auctions, "As seen in Toyfare!". And so it is stated and so it will be done.


Score! Fame by association! (i can't spell that word)

It is indeed true that one doc nightmare did in fact lend me the said Jacket which in turn entitles him to the aforementioned...However after recieving said jacket and looking it over I decided NOT to use that particular Jacket and found another..THUS!!! You, Doc Nightmare have no rightful claim on The Toyfare issue in Question..Thank You.

Oh and its Bill From Hamburg N.Y. ...Oh and No more cracks from the peanut Gallery Dea....I mean Doc! I just emailed them pictures.
