[pullquote]When I first saw this custom Rebel Ink from Robotic Industries it made me contact Jim and sort out getting a custom of my own. I just love the colour and whole hot rod theme that has been done and the finish looks amazing.[/pullquote]

Gary’s Custom of the Year…

[heading]Mr. De’Ath – Custom War Tourist by runDMB[/heading]

[pullquote]This was a tough one. I could have picked any of 100+ customs that I’ve seen this year. My winner for Custom of the Year could have been a number from runDMB – he has put out some great work this year. The Custom War Tourist that runDMB was shown at ToyConUK earlier this year and the level of detail that has gone in to this piece is incredible. The layers that build up the paint work is beautiful. Top Marks![/pullquote]

Andy’s Custom of the Year…

[heading]Realistic Custom Mega Munny for ToyConUK by Mike Strick[/heading]

[pullquote]Hands down nothing comes close! Seriously, when I saw this in the flesh at ToyConUK 2013 I was speechless! Photos look real, but in person it looks ALIVE! God knows how much time went into this, but its damn right crazy.[/pullquote]

Evan’s Custom of the Year…

[heading]Silent Thoughts, Silent Streets by JPK[/heading]

[pullquote]Custom Red Demon figure is my choice for custom of the year. Jpk is known for his black and white paints and that combined with a warm grey gives this piece so much character.[/pullquote]

Rob’s Custom of the Year…

[heading]Mr Lister Custom Secretbase Rebel Ink[/heading]

[pullquote]Another piece seen in person at toycon and really, really well done, personally my custom of the year. The paint work is immaculate and the concept simple but perfect, making the figure look like a high end production piece. Similar to Japanese woodblock prints but in keeping with the feel of the rebel ink sculpt, this looks fantastic in situ.[/pullquote]

Rich’s Custom of the Year…

[heading]Mike Strick “Invader” T-Con[/heading]

[frame align=”center”]Mike Strick "Invader" T-Con[/frame]

[pullquote]Completely bonkers ingenuity to tackle the T-Con platform in such a unique way that it was the stand out piece for me at the T-Con custom show in November. Sculpting, pose, painting, finish… all absolutely immaculate. A brilliant piece of work.[/pullquote]

I’m sure you’ve all got your favourite Custom of the Year, if so, let us know in the comments! We’d love to hear your thoughts!
