OsirisOrion X Toybreak
This week on Toybreak, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I was picked for their Cool Custom of the Week segment! I would like to thank the gang at Toybreak / October Toys George, Ayleen and Matt for the picking my customs for the segment. The custom dunny was for a secret santa custom trade that took place recently on the October Toys forum. The custom gwin George comissioned from me. Below are the show notes for Episode 60, which is an all plush episode. The cool custom of the week segment runs near the end of the show. Thanks again guys and can't wait till next weeks episode!
