5/22/20 Drop, Floppy Banana & Other news Info for drop on 5/20/22 at 8:30 pm EST In an effort to prevent my website from catching fire, I will be putting the shop pages into maintenance mode ~20 minutes before the drop happens and then taking the shop pages out of maintenance mode at the scheduled time of the drop.

Full Custom Toys vs. Partial Customs

Introducing ‘Color Paths’ on Custom Listings As of the new website update, custom listings are broken down into 2 categories – ‘full custom’ and ‘everything else’. These options are defined in the ‘color paths’ list.  The new options (‘Choose from pre-defined color combinations’ and ‘1-2 colors’ ) still offer some customization options, just not the full breath of my previous customization options – those are still available if you select ‘full custom’.  So what’s the difference??
