I have 14 customs out of about 100 figures, so I guess roughly 15% of my Joe collection are customs. This doesn't include "tweaks" or "improvements" I have done, since almost every figure I have has at least one minor tweak or alteration I have done to improve the figure.

I have tried my hand at customs and just don't have the patience for it but I have commissioned a few pieces by some local customizers.

I prefer my figures to look as factory as possible, with as little obvious paint on them.
I only customize completely "new" characters when Hasbro definitely won't be making the figure in the next year, or foreseeable future, and I try my damnedest not to paint eyes. Ugh, painting eyes. Sometimes, you just have to though.
With the announcement of the last figures made in the Cobra Island 7-packs and the few "classic" figures I know I'll get from the movie line, and the impending (potentially long) hiatus of the line (and questionable return?), I've made or decided to make the few remaining figures that I consider "essential" to completing my Joe or Cobra forces.
The only existing figure that I may as well make pretty much from scratch is Leatherneck, who aside from being made from the wrong parts, was made in the wrong colors too. Perhaps Falcon as well, but I don't care for him that much. Otherwise, I tweak my existing ones to fit how I want them, but it usually just involves gear mixing and matching, slight parts swapping, head swaps and/or minor paint apps where there should have been paint.
A few figures I've taken the X-Acto to, to clear up range of motion, or to clean off burrs that the factory left on them.
I don't customize vehicles, in fact, I try not to open them due to display space being at a minimum right now.
When all is said and done, no more than 5-10% of my figures, and 0% of vehicles as I try to keep "custom" looking figures to a minimum, so that they blend in but don't stick out as customs the crowd.

I have made over 110 customs so I'd say that at least over half of my 25th figures are customs. I've sold off a few of my custom figures however, so I'm not sure how many more I have. Also I'm doing commissions if anyone is interested since Hasbro isn't going to be making a lot of figures that I know a lot of us wish they would.
See my customs here
