About CustomCon

CustomCon is a fictional toy show showcasing the work of several customizers. You will not find these toys in your local toy store.


Buffy the Vampire Slayer *Tall Tales* Line

Sasha (aka MsBig) has produced a range of exclusive figures for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They are all based on stories told by the characters. Some are tales of derring-do, some are garbled re-tellings, or pure fantasy, but they could all be classed as *Tall Tales*.

*Tall Tales* Exacto-Knife Buffy & the Vampire Jock

In the Season 1 episode, "Harvest", Buffy is comforting Xander with stories of improbable vampire slayage.
Buffy: “Oh, fire, beheading, sunlight, holy water, the usual.”
“You've done some beheading in your time?”
“Oh, yeah. There was… this guy that played left tackle for varsity. Well, at least he used to before he was a vampire. Anyway, he had this really, really thick neck, and all I had was a little, little Exacto Knife. (Xander laughs nervously) You're not loving this story.”
: “No, actually, I find it oddly comforting.”


*Tall Tales* Alligator-Wrassling Faith

In the Season 3 episode, "Faith, Hope & Trick", the new slayer in town, Faith, has just met the Scooby gang and is telling tall tales.
Xander: “So what was the, uh, story about that alligator? You said something before.”
Faith: “Oh, there's this Big Daddy Vampire out of Missouri who used to keep them as pets. So he's got me wrassling one of them, OK? The thing must have been twelve feet long and I'm...”
Xander: “So was this, um, ahem, also naked?”
Faith: (Teasingly)“Well, the alligator was.”

*Tall Tales* Dancing-for-Dollars Xander

In the Season 4 episode, "The Freshman", Xander is telling Buffy how his Jack Kerouac-style American road trip went.
Xander: “Basically, I got as far as Oxnard and the engine fell out of my car, and that was literally. So, I ended up washing dishes at 'The Fabulous Ladies Night Club' for about a month and a half while I tried to pay for the repairs. No one really bothered me or even spoke to me until one night when one of the male strippers called in sick and no power on this earth will make me tell you the rest of that story. Suffice to say I traded my car in for one that wasn't entirely made of rust, came trundling back home to the arms of my loving parents, where everything was exactly as it was except I sleep in the basement and I have to pay rent. How's college?”
: “Male strippers?”
: “No power on this earth!”


*Tall Tales* Masterpiece-Theatre Andrew

In the Season 7 episode, "Storyteller", Andrew is locked in the bathroom talking to his video camera, but he imagines he's in a cosy room wearing a smoking jacket, and hosting Masterpiece Theatre.
Andrew: “Oh! Hello there, gentle viewers. You caught me catching up on an old favourite. It’s wonderful to get lost in a story, isn’t it? The adventure, and heroics, and discovery… don’t they just take you away? Hmm(he tries puffing on his pipe, but chokes on the smoke and puts it down). Come with me now, if you will, gentle viewers. Join me on a new voyage of the mind, a little tale I like to call Buffy, A Slayer of the Vampires.”


*Tall Tales* Murderous Faith & the Vulcan

In the Season 7 episode, "Dirty Girls", Andrew is giving the potential slayers some background information on Faith, who has reappeared to help Buffy. He gets it a bit wrong in describing Faith's turn to the dark side.
Andrew: “Faith. Her name alone invokes awe. Faith. A set of principles or beliefs on which you are willing to devote your life. The dark slayer. A lethal combination of beauty, power, and death. For years and years - or to be more accurate - months, Faith fought on the side of good, terrorizing the evil community. But like so many tragic heroes, Faith was seduced by the lure of the dark side. She wrapped evil around her like a large, evil Mexican serape. She became a cold-blooded killer. Nobody was immune to her trail of destruction. Not friends, not family. Not even the most pacifist and logical of races.”
Amanda: “What the hell are you talking about? I thought Faith killed a volcanologist.”
: “ Silly, silly...Amanda. Why would Faith kill a person who studies Vulcans?”
: “He studied volcanoes. He was a professor.”
