As is the Custom: My faves for the week ending March 16, 2014...
Maybe someday there will be a bad week of customs, but it won't be this week.
And it surely won't be next. Hot Wheels BMW E30 submissions continue to roll in for the first Lamley Custom Contest. Remember that submissions are due in exactly one week by the end of day on Sunday, March 24. Also, we will ONLY accept submissions emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One other note. Try to send at least three photos of every angle of your custom. Because we are judging solely on photos, more angles definitely gives us the best idea of the extent of your creation. When we open the judging up to Lamley readers, we will show what we feel are the three best photos of each submission, so feel free to give us as many as you feel we need. We look forward to your submission...
Now on with this week's customs...
The Custom(s) of the Week is a little different this week. Some of you may know that the 4th Annual HWC Malaysia Dinner was held this weekend, and from all accounts it was a blazing success. The highlight for us at Lamley? The customs. This area of the world may be the newest hotbed for Hot Wheels collecting, and it is already houses some of the best HW customizers on the planet. So we have selected all the customs displayed, bought, sold, and given away at the HWCM as our Customs of the Week.
It is nearly impossible for us to dish our proper credit, but if anyone who knows can help me, I will add credit as we go along. But I know who did this masterpiece:
And others from the dinner:
And there are great images in this video as well:
I am sure there are a lot more out there, and if anyone who attended wants to share, please email them to us.
We also can't leave the Custom of the Week part of this post without showing off these two amazing pieces by regular Lamley contributor Daniel Hew, who submitted his Cyclops Bone Shaker and Custom 56 Ford Coca Cola Van:
