The F118 exclusive figure is one of a kind, no doubt. We all want a modern, general purpose, infantry type soldier to play with. This fig was designed with that idea in mind. Faceless, and nameless(to a degree), this fig will be the near-perfect standard soldier to take on whatever task is demanded of him.
With more articulation than standard current military figs, and current gear styling... he's sure to be a hit.
*Figure will be available on Fighting118th.com at a later date*Heroic Quest
Turn-based, tile movement, action and adventure! Unique weapons, treasure, traps, magic, and many monsters of the underworld await the "heroes", as they comb the dungeons on their main quest. Fast play action, and many surprises (good and bad) combine for an exciting experience.Kumite Martial Arts Custom Contest
Making its return will be the Kumite Martial Arts Custom Contest open to all who attend!Special Guests
The AngelForge specializes in custom 1:18th parts. New product will be revealed, and there will also be sponsored contests with prizes. Look for the table with information and product available for purchase.
I'm a Customizer with a passion for details, and proper scales. I figure if a 12" fig can be realistic, then why not a 4" fig? That's my mission goal, with 99% of anything I do. And it's worked out so far.
I will be bringing many custom figs and some smaller dio stuffs to the event, as well as the "Heroic Quest" game-board. Daremo and I will be running the HQ games, as well as doing any customs related Q&A's/How To's.
Stealthily entering the customizing world with his custom ninja weapon accessories in late 2007, Daremo has since learned how to effectively customize action figures. He will be sharing his knowledge of making accessories as well as demonstrating the many uses of green stuff. Also making its return will be the Kumite Martial Arts Custom Contest, open to all who attend.
Dave Castle, aka StarWarsGeek Customs, has been making his own toys since as far back as he can remember. He's also started producing his own castings for making toys of your own, and he will have a good amount of his inventory on hand at the show. There will be plenty of new parts on hand, perhaps even some 'exclusive' parts, and you can expect discounted prices and special sales all weekend long.
My real name is Kirk L Downie. I started customizing maybe about 6 years ago and I started dio building maybe 3 years ago. I am a married man and a father of two boys. I open all my toys. After all, they are toys and meant to be played with. I call my playing "taking pictures" hehe. I enjoy building dios the most, but have a case of zombie fever as well and cannot stop myself from doing zombie customs. I have aspirations of someday doing a large scale epic dio-story myself. Only time will tell with that.
