TNI's Cool Custom of the Week paying off

Postby TFLobo » Sun Jan 08, 2006 5:10 pm

Saw this over at Toy News International.

Looks like every month their going to have a drawing for $100 at any TNI sponsor. (Most notably BBTS :D ) Only the people who have their customs posted under the Cool Customs of the Week will be eligible. 1 in 4 isn't too bad of odds! But I quess you have to be selected first........

Let's get some Transtopians over there and show them how it's done!

Good Luck to all!

I submitted my Elita-1 custom for the Cool Custom of the Week back even before I joined here and it never went up on the site, which really bites.

Your welcome.

You guys must be emailing your submission because I don't remember seeing any threads over there. :?

And PK, I'd be willing to bet Hammerlock makes the cut. Great bash and they really seem to like TF customs at TNI.

How is it that you guys got picked and neither of my submissions have? I have submitted both my Elita-1 and my Chromia. I submitted Chromia less than two weeks ago. What}s the deal here? What do I have to do to get mine posted up there.

Ultimately the decision is up to the site admin.
They judge it off of what else has been submitted and whats been posted in the forums. I'm not 100% sure but I think if a custom isn't posted the week you submitted it, there's a chance it could be posted later. So don't lose hope.

There are a couple things that IMHO help. I joined the site and post my cutoms in the fourm. You don't have to but personally I like to see what other customizers over there think of my work. It makes it more visible. Submit lots (4-8) of good clear pics. And also give a recipe. What did you use as a base, what materials, etc.

oen thing that comes to midn mgiht be they arnt just a TF forum so they probably dont know who Elita-1 my Chromia are. i think if i submitted a TF itd have to be a g1 leader or something they will recognise

Thanks for the kind words Lobo.
And Tramp, I haven't been selected yet, I just submitted Hammerlock as my entry to the contest. I haven't heard anything as of yet

Nope because they already had a non-transforming Elita-1 up as a Cool Custom of the Week a few years ago. So, they do know these characters exist.

Now I too can join the ranks along with Lobo, Swampmojo and others alike.....
Hammerlock got picked for Cool Custom of the Week!!!!
I had got kinda distraught over the contest at first, with not being picked at all for over a month, but hopefully this is sign of things to come!!
WOOT!!
