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.



In a stunning development, Marvel Comics has joined forces with Chris Marsh-Land Enterprises to bring the original X-Factor squad into the plastic universe. And even more exciting, they have decided to blatantly rip off the "Total Justice" style made popular several years back by Hasbro and DC Comics. The line is to be called, simply, "TJ-X." When asked what the 'TJ' stood for, a representative of Chris Marsh-Land replied, "No comment."

When asked why they decided to start the line off by depicting the team in their second set of uniforms, instead of the originals, the head of the production design team said, "These looked cooler," and shrugged. "Besides," he added, "we think it's a fair assumption that no one wants to see Jean Grey dressed in green and yellow."

A second wave of figures was slated for release, in fact showing the team in their original X-Factor uniforms, but it has already been canceled. While no official word has been given on the reason for the cancellation, rumors are already spreading. Several members of the production team, speaking on condition of anonymity, said they threatened management they would "stab 'em in the eye with a spoon" if they were forced to paint any more of "those friggin' yellow X-es."
