This week brings CustomCon 24
, an online convention of sorts where custom toymakers roll out their very own jerry-rigged action figures for the world to see.
It's an awesome event for anybody that likes to gawk at images of new and upcoming action figures - the only downside is that these toys aren't actually on their way to shelves. That's not to say that you can't appreciate the fine craftsmanship on display, of course.
With only one more day left in the convention, the vast majority of CC24's offerings have already been unveiled and are almost universally fantastic. The wave that's getting the most attention online is Rust This World's take on Iron Fist and The Immortal Weapons
, a group of characters showcased in Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction's celebrated "The Immortal Iron Fist" run for Marvel Comics.
Other cool sets of figures are The Dark Avengers by Levit05
and Sillof's Gaslight Legion of Doom
toys. Sillof, of course, crafted those excellent Victorian Avengers
toys we highlighted here on Comics Alliance recently.
Check out the full line-up over at The Fwoosh
, the fantastic website that's playing host to CC24.
