Wow..

This is not good either..

It's like the ultimate oxymoron.

Taking an amazing sculpt like Usugrow's Rebel Ink and trying to make it work on the crappiest, factory-made, bullish!t is not at all appealing or interesting. Can we please stop putting up all these terrible customs in the thread and keep the thread on point?

Jfactor your collection is weak and that setup is awful. I mean only two captains? Dont you even have a heypus? And who would put a white toy against a white background?!
