One thing Hasbro has grossly neglected time and time again over the years is playsets/dioramas/environments for their action figure lines.

So in that light, our latest Yakfinities Customizing  Challenge theme is custom playsets/dioramas/environments!  This Yakfinities runs through the end of September, so there’s plenty of time to create and submit an entry.

There have been some great customs shared in our forums lately – which means a Customizer Spotlight is well overdue!

First up, take a gander at the latest creations by forum member Peakob1 – as always, amazing stuff and Hasbro should take notice.

After that, be sure to hop on over to the customs thread of Uttinniii, who has updated with several new droids.

Forum member Clonetroopr has also been busy, with a fantastic take on a Sith Acolytes from the Old Republic.

Last but not least, one of our favorite customizers, mousedroidhoojib, continues to shine with a great custom of a concept Sith Lord known as Darth Tigran.

“Slave Leia” Merchandise To Be Retired?

slave_leia_merch

Our friends at MakingStarWars.net have posted an interesting report that Disney Licensing is no longer authorizing the likeness of Princess Leia in her prisoner outfit. This edict extends to approved Lucasfilm & Marvel artist as well (confirmed by J Scott Campbell). “Slave Leia” has been the subject of much discussion over the recent past and as you can see from the image above, this particular likeness has received its fair share of merchandise* over the years.
