LOL... wow.. Funny I never got one of those as a kid.. My first custom I think was taking the Gold Head Destro and putting the chuckles head on him.. I wanted an UNMASKED Destro like in the comics.
I ended up doing similar things to other masked figures.

my customizing started with a sledge hammer, i know this is ridiculous but i was young dumb and didn't have a small screw driver
after trashing about 20 figures i got the little three pack or mini screwdrivers

I've never seen that ad before. I guess my first real "custom'' work was touching up the paint on vintage SW figures. At the time they weren't vintage. I used gloss model paint which I don't think have dried fully to this day. Then came unscrewing Joe's and mixing parts. Then I started mixing parts and painting them to make my own stuff and a lot of Marvel and DC heroes. Made a lot of those in junior high and I still have them. Then came the new SW figures, new Joes and the rest is mystery.

I got started a couple of years ago by collecting vintage ARAH Firefly's. I scoured the internet as well as eBay, and came across some customs/repaints. So my first "customs" were repaints of a VvV Firefly and some other Firefly that came with a CD ROM, and then the 25th's came out, and I was introduced to the Hisstank, and the rest is a sick history.
Really, it kinda stems from, for me, making the "perfect" figure. The "perfect" version of Firefly. I'm still working on that!

Never seen that Duke sheet before. I just wanted to fix up the half-assed stuff Hasbro was giving us and make it something I would love to have.
