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!
Our current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge only has a couple weeks left, as entries will be accepted through June 30.
So, if you’re planning on making a custom figure, be sure to get your entry submitted before the deadline! Or if you’d just like to kick back and check out some cool customs made by other collectors, the forums are just a click away!
Another Yakfinities Customizing Challenge will launch in July, but before then, we need for our forum members to decide on the theme. Head on over to the forums to cast your vote.
Also don’t forget, there’s still a few weeks left to submit an entry in the current Yakfinities, Rebel Militia (lots of great customs posted already, so be sure to check those out even if you’re not a customizer).
Our current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge goes through June 30, but it’s time to start thinking about ideas for the next one, which kicks off in July! After over 50 of these customizing events, we could always use some fresh ideas, so be sure to share your suggestions in our comments section or in the forums!
