I don't believe it ! There are so many great figures in this contest. So many phenominal artists. I am totally blown away. Thank you ! Thank you to the vendors and folks who supplied the prizes. Special thanks again goes to all of you behind SAG and for having a great forum with a great bunch of guys and cool contests. I was just telling Dougmo that figures weren't my forte. Lots of stiff competition and congrats to all for participating. Lots of great bashes and inspiration. This is how its done and its only done on SAG.

I just noticed something on my figure thats kinda weird. Check it out

Thanks to all the organizers and congratulations to all the participants.
Thanks for the recognition of my figure.
Great job Dennis and a very well deserved gold medal. The momnet I saw your tanker it was my favorite figure too.
It is amazing how you wer4e able to get so many garments to look natural on a figure. I have a feeling you maybe began with a very small nude to compensate for all the clothes!
Interesting how you used parts from probably all the 1/6 manufacturers!
Again great job!
Que siga la fiesta!

Drone, There isn't a zipper pull thats scale in 1/6 . BBI's is enormous compared to Dragons. Do I sense A little hostility?

Drone's onto something with the zipper pull. It's not the size that's the issue; it's the side. The zipper pull should be on the right side, not the left. I'm assuming that 1/6 manufacturers reversed this as a result of the majority of collectors who would be zipping up the jacket would (probably) be right-handed. I have the OJI version; and it also has the zipper on the wrong side. When the jacket is zipped-up, it's impossible to tell.

This "manufacturer's defect" takes nothing away from an excellent kitbash!!

You guys scratching your heads over what is "kinda weird" about Dennis' figure cracks me up

I could be wrong but I read his comment...

as taking notice of the fact that his figure uses parts from a bunch of manufacturers / customizers. Can't really call it a Dragon or a DiD or a BBI figure, but a true ToySurgeon Frankenfigure

LOL Guys, I thought it was weird that evey piece on my figure was from differnet manufacturer. I saw this after the fact. The shoulder holster was weird in that it only has one strap. I thought it was like a M7 but its not. I don't even know the maker.
