The hobby may be slow right now, but customizers always find a way to make even the dark times a bit brighter with their creative works by sharing them with the community.

So we kick things off on this Customizer Mega Spotlight with Peakob1, who shows off yet again another group of amazing Clone Wars custom figures.  Check them out here.

Next, mousedroidhoojib has created something truly unique; Padme Amidala in a bio-hazard suit!

Also, General Rieeken really is outdated by today’s standards, so check out how forum member Customjedi is fixing that.

Last but not least, forum member CloneTroopr shows off a fantastic custom of Republic Commando Gregor.

For those active in our forums, you’re probably already familiar with the awesome custom diorama pieces that forum member Raylen creates, and offers up to fellow collectors.  He specializes in obscure items that some may overlook, but these things are just too cool to not be part of any Star Wars 3.75″ collection.

His latest sneak peek is one many of us have been hoping would be available for our collections for decades now, and that time is finally coming if you’re willing to roll up your sleeves and do a bit of painting!  Head on over to the forums for a closer look!

Tonight we highlight some more of the great custom works of several of our forum members!

First up, Evilivo continues to inspire with a great repaint of the recent Mission Series Yoda.  What he’s done here really brings this figure to life.

Next, my kind of scum shows off another batch of his custom figures, including one using several non-Star Wars parts to create a spectacular alien.  I don’t know what the heck this thing is, but it’s awesome!

We’ve also got some really cool new droids that you’ll want to see by Jawaking, who has been on one heck of a role lately with his customs.
