    Should be in the custom section, no?

    Nope, it's one of a kind original.

    Isn't a one of kind original a custom?

    This is a really good conversation to have. A CUSTOM can be a one-of-a-kind original (especially if the customizer has gone above and beyond to make something new out of the original toy). However, a ONE-OF-A-KIND ORIGINAL is not typically going to be a CUSTOM. In the case here, the talented Jimmy Foo has created an original figure with his own original sculpt. This would only be a custom, if Jimmy writes that underneath the purple, there is a Munny in there somewhere :)

    There are talks in multiple toy commentaries on Rotocasted. My reasoning for what is classified a custom:

    Custom: Uses another toy as its platform, including re-casting parts. Therefore customising a toy.

    Original: Creating a sculpt without use of another toy as its platform. An original toy.

    I feel there is a difference between "customizing" and "custom". I would define taking a platform toy and painting it or making it your own would be customizing or customization, however, making your own one of a kind toy would be a custom (as in custom made). IMHO.

    As toy design as we know it is relatively new, it may be helpful to reference an older practice to define the nature of the beast.

    In furniture design, the term "custom made" tends to be only used if you were commissioned to do a unique piece for someone. The person commissioning the piece would set the design specifications for the custom made furniture, not the designer.

    One of a kind pieces get made in furniture design often and are not considered custom pieces but new designs.

    English language seems to lack the words required for this subject :P The interpretation of words like 'original' and 'custom' can easily become out of context.

    I think in this instance the term 'custom' is being confused with customised. Imo, to customise is to take an existing object and make alterations. A custom is essentially a commission with some kind of client brief. However, I regard this piece to be neither of the above as it's an original design....soooo... Between Jeremy and CoMus I'd say it's pretty much covered.
