Yakfinities #57 – Pegwarmer Roundup

pegwarmers1

A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge has just begun – the Pegwarmer Roundup!

Let’s face it, there’s figures that Hasbro makes just too many of, or the figure just falls short of expectations.  Sometimes, this is where customizers come in and save the day by making a purchase nobody else will… for a custom!

Got some pegwarmers in your area that a retailer can’t seem to give away?  Help these unwanted toys find a home (only to be chopped up repainted) by joining in the Pegwarmer Roundup!

Rebel Militia Customizing Challenge
