Customizer Peakob1 shows off his latest custom figures, as part of his vision of what a 40th Anniversary line should look like from Hasbro.   Head on over to the forums to check it all out!

The auction has since ended, but an amazing 12″ custom Princess Leia figure was recently available on eBay.

This hand crafted figure portrait  from ROTJ truly captures the essense of Carrie Fisher’s beauty in ROTJ.  Given her recent passing, I couldn’t help but share.

I hope you enjoy viewing the images as much as I did.  For more pics of this amazing work of art, click here.
