Custom Chop Shop Wrap-Up


The Custom Chop Shop Wrap-Up returns today with some exciting news!

We are going to have some exciting prizes to give away. The theme for this contest is going to be any figure from our Top-30 List that we sent in to Hasbro (and no Jocasta Nu didn't make that list.) We've also got a spotlight on some great figures and a diorama for you this update. Read on for all the details!
