The latest Yakfinities Customizing Challenge has kicked off, and the Rogue One theme is one that holds a ton of promise considering the depth of figures Hasbro has yet to offer in the ever-popular 3.75″ super articulated line.
Get in on the fun and create a custom (or several) by heading on over to the forums!
Those of you who watch Star Wars Rebels are more than likely familiar with one of the highlights of Season 2… Captain Rex’s modified AT-TE!
Customizer Raylen has gone to great lengths to customize an AT-TE that would definitely give Hasbro a run for their money if they ever decided to update their Clone Wars version of this awesome vehicle.
Head on over to the forums for a closer look!
The latest Yakfinties Customizing Challenge has concluded, and with over 50 customs submitted, we once again have a fantastic Roundup Report to share.
Check it out and see who is walking away with prizes after the jump!
Yakface.com is proud to welcome Galactic Trading Post, creators of the amazing SPACE WALLS and accessories for 3.75″ and 6″ scale figures, as our newest sponsor. Customizers, diorama builders and toy photographers have wanted set pieces from the saga to accentuate their action figure displays for years and GTPToys has filled that need with their modular and expandable system. If you haven’t, please visit their site at GTPToys.com and check out their selection of in-stock and preorder products.
Customizing perfectionist Evilivo has shared several custom updates over the past few months in our forums, including a group of Phase II Clone Troopers that exemplify exactly how Hasbro needs to approach these army builders should they ever bring clone grunts back into circulations in the 3.75″ scale. Notice how the helmets are not oversized buckets that detract from the figure. Check out his update after the jump!
Personal Note: Nothing Hasbro did from 2010-2012 annoyed me more than the oversized bucket helmets they used on the spectacular VC45 mold Clone Trooper body. Why put such horrible helmets on such a great body? Hasbro admitted as much with our friends at Jeditemplearchives a few years ago… hopefully someday we will see some sort of definitive 3.75″ box set like what is currently being offered in the 6″ scale (or single carded figures, but I wouldn’t hold one’s breath).
Voting for the customizing theme for the next Yakfinities is currently underway.
What will be the winning theme? Tribal Aliens? Or will Rogue One prevail?
