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.



It's been five long years since the last volume was published, but the folks at Bantam Books have announced a collaboration with Baen Publishing and the fledgling Pamster Toy Company to introduce a line of action figures based on characters from the popular Wild Cards mosaic novels. Set in a world like our own; save for the alien Takisian Virus which killed tens of thousands, disfigured thousands and left a precious lucky few with fantastic powers; the Wild Cards novels feature the exploits of characters created by some of the top writers in science fiction, including George R. R. Martin, Roger Zelazny, Melinda Snodgrass, Chris Claremont, John J. Miller, Stephen Leigh, Walter Jon Williams, Lewis Shiner and many, mnay more. The books were written in the "mosaic" format, allowing each author to write the chapters featuring their own characters.
