Fred Multedo aka Teimaru says: "I want to thank Doktor A , MINDstyle and you of course, to have created such a nice contest, which allows customisers all over the world to show and share their art, and try to win such an awesome price !!!

I can't believe i'll have a hand painted stephan lepodd in my house ! Doktor A is one of my favourite artist, i love his stuff and the world he created. The way he sculp and paint the toys which fall in his hand is awesome , turning the toy in something higher, and a bit magic too ... His stuff always made me sick since i knew of it, and such a pretty f**kin' cool work always is an inspiration for other artists...
So i am very very very glad to win this contest, where i saw a lot of nice stuff, AND OWN A ONE OF A KIND HAND PAINTED TOY BY THE GOOD DOKTOR A !!!!

I can't express how much i am happy ! This lepodd i just won is so bad ! the nicest i've seen yet, just crazy ! It will be one of the central piece of my collection!

Nathanaël Brun aka Naël-says: "I'm sure M. Herbert CHIROPT will be pleased on this result, He always knew he was one of the graetest person of Retrocity.

More seriously, I didn't expect to win a price on that contest, regarding all the great customs in line. I must say it was a real pleasure to work on the Stephen LePodd figure. It was like he was designed to be disassembled and reassembled on an other shape. Thank you for this prize.

Todd Robertson-says: "Thank you so much for putting this contest together and keeping toysrevil on the cutting edge of the toy world. Was really pumped to wake up and find out that I had been choosen for one of the top three runner-ups. Cant wait to hold that Dok A piece when it arrives. Again thank you for all your time and dedication to toys."
