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

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!
Tonight at 9pm EST, the diorama team at Hole in the Ground Pro will be holding a YouTube live stream. They will be discussing their Indiegogo campaign and more regarding diorama bits and accessories.

Tonight we spotlight the customizing work of forum member ImperialOfficer, who took on a personal challenge to try and complete one custom figure each day over the summer.
He came close, with a staggering total of 55 custom figures completed! Check out a full size group shot after the jump!
Hole in the Ground Productions has just over 3 weeks left on the crowdfunding project to help make some of their amazing 3.75″ diorama products for you even better. Head on over and add a pledge to the campaign by clicking here!
Personal Note: Anyone who has ordered from Hole in the Ground Pro in the past knows just how much Eric cares about the quality that goes into the product, and how fantastic these pieces are. If you are on the fence, just remember this next phase of product they are exploring will be even higher quality than their already outstanding line of diorama items!
Custom dioramas are always one of the best parts of the hobby, and forum member RookieOne has shared some cool pics of a multi level diorama called “Black Spire Outpost” that he’s working on. Check it out after the jump!
Did you know that the new C’ai Threnalli’s head fits onto the 3.75″ TBS Poe Dameron figure? If not, now you know.
It might not be totally screen accurate this way, but now you can easily make a more articulated version of him (or Ello Asty if you prefer).
Thanks to Jodo for the tip!
