Here is the third member of my Infinity Watch series. Pip The Troll is the carrier of the Space Gem. I used an old school Tatanka figure and gave him an extreme makeover!! cut of the arms and dremmelled away his earings and mullet hair. then I sculpted new shoulder so the arms could be at his sides and sculpted his pot belly, ears, hair, boots and robusto cigar. all done with ApoxieSculpt. also I drilled a little hole between his fingers for the cigar! next up for the Watch will be Moondragon.I've included a photo of the original figure for your curiosity.

1st of all great job on your whole Infinity Watch group of customs. Second with regards to the No-Prize comment, back in the 70's some Marvel comics readers started demanding that Marvel give out prizes of cash or otherwise to readers who spot continuity errors and other such discrepancies in their comics like their competition was known to do. In response, Stan Lee decided to tweak their noses by sending out "No-Prizes". essentially they were empty pre-printed envelopes with the message emblazoned on the front, " Congratulations! This envelop contains a genuine Marvel Comics No-Prize which you have just won!" As the No-Prize evolved, it was distinguished by its role in explaining away potential continuity errors. Rather than rewarding fans for simply identifying such errors, a No-Prize was only awarded when a reader successfully explained why the continuity error was not an error at all. this practice was ended when Ronald Perelman ran Marvel into the ground and started cutting costs to stave off bankruptcy. In 1991 Tom DeFalco reestablished the No-Prize but they switch to digital No-Prizes in '05. Now the current "No-Prizes" are only given out for charitable works or other types of "meritorious service to the cause of Marveldom". The 1st such award was given out to a group of fans who donated a large amount of comics to the troops overseas. So essentially, what Fred was trying to say was that your custom is an example of meritorious service to the cause of Marveldom. (Man that was long winded. sorry for the ridiculously long explanation).
