Wow, this is getting nuts. But we love it.
Between the attention that the Lamley Custom Contest has gotten, as well as the Lamley Group’s foray onto Instagram, our weekly custom post has literally blown up. We are getting an enormous amount of submissions, and going through them is an absolute blast.
When we first started doing this, most of what we would show came from what we would see in our regular perusal of websites and forums, but as this post grows in popularity, that has shifted to customs submitted directly to us. And they are coming in droves.
So we think we should clarify a few things:
- We cannot guarantee that we will show your custom. If we displayed all we get, this post would have well over 100 to 150 photos. And it does not always mean we didn’t like what you sent in. We just may not have had room. Or we may just have forgotten as we put the post together. So feel free to send it again if you don’t see it.
- We much prefer that you send images to our email address – firstname.lastname@example.org. We do go through what is submitted on Facebook, but have noticed that if a lot is submitted on FB, some customs can get buried and we miss them. We will always look at what is posted there, but the best chance for us to see it is by email.
- Instagrammers, when you post a photo of a custom on IG, hashtag it with #thelamleygroup and #lamleycustoms so we are guaranteed to see it. Or if you see something you like, hashtag it as well. We will review what is tagged on a daily basis, and may invite you to send it to us. When you do email us, be sure to include your IG handle, so we can use it when we post pics. But once again, even if we ask you to send it in, we cannot guarantee we will show it.
We also want to give an honorable mention to Instagram user @hotwheelguru, who submitted these extremely crisp and springtime-celebrating beauties. Plus, we love seeing the first custom jobs on the 510 Wagon:
And lastly, as part of a trio of Customs of the Week, another honorable mention to Jeffrel Sto. Domingo, for his Kenmeri and Celica. While the actual custom may not be that involved, we will always acknowledge good photography:
