Yakfinities #70: DROIDS

A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge is currently underway, and the theme is DROIDS.

So, roll up your sleeves and cobble together a droid of your own… or better yet, let’s see what kind of painting skills you’ve got too!   Or if that’s not your cup of tea, you can still check out the most recent entries by clicking here.

Personal Note:  The roundup report for Yakfinities #69 is coming soon – with over 150 custom entries, it’s taking longer than usual – apologies for the delay!

Yak’s Top Ten: Return of the Jedi

Yak’s Top Ten is back for another round, taking us back to Tatooine and Endor!

What figures do you want to see made in The Vintage Collection from Return of the Jedi?  Post your TVC wishlist HERE.

You can also do the same thing for the 6″ scale line in The Black Series.  Post your 6″ TBS wishlist right HERE.

Note:  Wishlists may also be posted in the comments section of this article.  You may post both a TVC and TBS list, but please do not post your wish lists in this comments section AND in the forums.   And please indicate if you’re referring to TVC or TBS with each list.

TBS 3.75″ @ Ross

Some Ross stores are getting in TBS 3.75″ figures for the ridiculously low price of $2.99 (Sandtrooper, Ponda Baba, Tusken Raider, Boba Fett – Prototype Armor).   Thanks to forum member EndorJunkie for the heads up!

Personal Note:  These former Walmart exclusive figures are great for army building and custom fodder; and really didn’t hit full circulation at Walmart due to some very bad previous wave assortments and terrible distribution.  I know that if I see these, I won’t pass them up at this price! 

YAK’S TOP TEN: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

Yak’s Top Ten is back for another round, taking us back to 1980!

What figures do you want to see made in The Vintage Collection from The Empire Strikes Back?  Post your TVC wishlist HERE!

You can also do the same thing for the 6″ scale line in The Black Series.  Post your 6″ TBS wishlist right HERE.

Note:  Wishlists may also be posted in the comments section of this article.  You may post both a TVC and TBS list, but please do not post your wish lists in this comments section AND in the forums.   And please indicate if you’re referring to TVC or TBS with each list.

Hole in the Ground Pro Crowdfunding Extension

Hole in the Ground Pro has extended their deadline for injection molded diorama parts!  If you like having some cool display pieces to fill in your action figure displays, then now is the time to help make this happen!   Click HERE to get in on this collector campaign!

Personal Note:  If the collecting community can’t fund this,  we might have a very hard time finding future opportunity for such great items down the road from this small company or other entrepreneurs.   Eric makes top quality product that is well worth the money.  Let’s make this happen folks, it can open the door to even better stuff down the road!
