Yeah, the flood of "animated" style made this the weakest custom con in history. It was exceedingly boring and had no interest at all for me. I appreciate the fans out there who like these happy meal toys but I just can't get in to them at all. I don't know where all the other customs were but if this is a sign of things to come in custom con then I guess I won't be looking forward to them anymore.
It takes all kinds, I suppose. For me, the ever-growing glut of Marvel Legends/DSCH-style customs in the past few years made me grow tired of wading through the Custom Con pages. I didn't even look through the last few Cons much at all, and wouldn't have noticed these had it not been for this thread. So I'm super glad to see these new animated customs, as there are a few in this bunch, like the Nightshade and the Marvel figures (I love me some Timm-Style Marvel customs) that are really sweet.
