What A great Read Dave. & ConGrats Spidey on Customizer of Month. Your skill is so ever growing, it's nice to see a "newbie" so skilled.. I find your work refreshing, & it's great to see you ever so getting Better. I love your choice of characters too. Keep up the good work. :smile:

Derek, Daremo and I were just talking about how your customs have been on a steady incline when it comes to quality. To me that is the true litmus test of a customizer, when his most recent custom is better than his last.
You, my friend, are approaching that summit with a full head of steam. keep up the great work!

Derek, I'm a big fan of your work. I absolutely love your Scooby collection, I've only mentioned that like a thousand times before. :grin:
One of my all time favorite customs you did (and which sadly isn't featured) is Copperhead. One day you'll have to make me one :wink_y:

If any of you had said to me 2 years ago, "you will be posting September 25, 2007 on a Mego message board about your 8" customs"...I would have looked at you like you were crazy.
It has been a wild ride this past year. I have learned from so many of you and grown so much from it.
Dave - thanks for being a great moderator- you truly are the glue that holds this section of the Museum together. Custom mego is what it is today primarily because of you.
Paul (Meryln1976) - thanks for being there in the beginning to help me and keep me motivated with my work. You are an endless source of mego "stuff" - if I needed it, you had it. You are a great right hand man to Dave and do so much behind the scenes.
Russ - thanks for letting me bounce ideas off of you - you are a master of custom-making and few people know it. Thanks for being such a good friend.
John (Type3Toys), Chris (CaptainMego), and Jason (BlackKnight)- In my opinion, your customs are amazing and the standard by which all higher end customs are judged - I just hope that someday my work is half as good as you three.
Austin - your stuff sparked my imagination in the beginning. When I saw your Spiderman villains for the first time, it's like a fire was ignited in my belly. You are truly the King of Mego-esque!
Anthony - without your amazing boxes my customs are only half-way done. You complete me! Seriously - appreciate all the help and info you've given me this past year. You are truly a walking comic book encyclopedia!!
Dane, Bobbait, tbolt, Thomas (Meule), Fred (Blackkryptonite), Scott (gman), Heath, Alberto, Damian, MegoScott, Flynne, Mike (batmanmc), Paul (Hulk), Steven Moore, Vinny, Cat from down under, HardyGirl, John (starbuk), ABMAC, Jim Hampton, Chris (Earth2Chris), and anyone else I can't remember because I'm too tired....thanks for all the positive and encouraging posts. I know sometimes my work was crap and you really wanted to criticize it, but out of kindness you didn't. Thanks for sparing my feelings.
I've made a ton of friends here and hope to make a ton more in the future. What a great place!!!!!
