Speaking of customs... There have been extremely few JLU customs on Ebay. Has the fad passed? I hope not. I do commission some, but sometimes there's nothing better than coming upon one on Ebay that you never thought of. I miss seeing them on there.

I think most custom sales are done off of eBay at this point. I know several people who constantly seem to be working on some type of commission. The customs certainly aren't dead.

jzachery, part of the problem is ebay itself. Many of us refuse to pay eBay's fees on top of Paypal fees. Plus you have the risk of dealing with someone you don't know. I wouldn't have accounts for either myself if there were another option.

I will say Stew occasionally puts items up at CJ, and I'm considering doing the same.

It's a great custom by Stew. I still have him on my workbench.

The head is still in stock.

But the robe body and arms are out of stock :(

I can say that
*Stew
*Tex
*Glassman

are some of the best customizers out there. I try and keep up but I tend to stick to the obsucre figures. If you need any help on trying to come up with ideas I will do my best to give pointers. I have only been doing customs for years. Most the people on custom justice have made nearly all the missing JLU characters or have them on there to-do-list.

I always forget to mention this, and it's ridiculous that I don't at this point. Stew often gets casts of unique headsculpts from GreatWhite and 37Customs and offeres them through his store.

However, theGuff also usually has casts of his products available. Matter of fact, he just cast the first ever Dummy figure. It's a unique sculpt by him and looks FANTASTIC. But he also has several other heads available - Larfleeze, Kanto, Maash, Shriek and others.

Yeah, I'll eventually make her but The Dummy was one we had actually been trying to figure out how to do lol. Then he comes along and says "here's my Dummy and oh yeah I have casts lol".

He was on Stew's long term list, but Guff beat him to it.

I'm telling ya, if you can't find a certain figure from one of the customizers, you just aren't trying hard enough. :)
