We are way overdue for another spotlight showing off the fantastic customizing skills of our forum members, so let’s get to it!
First up, Mousedroid-Hoojib continues to show the capabilities of soft goods customizing with a new version of Padme, which can be seen here.
Forum member wraith_nineyak also joins in the mix, with a new animated custom of Sergeant Krayt from the Clone Wars.
Peakob1 also creates a new Clone Wars custom – but one with a twist by making a realistic custom figure of Rush Clovis.
Last but not least, you have to check out Evilivo’s custom pre-cyborg General Grievous, which is a huge improvement over the Hasbro version… it even has real hair!
This week we are featuring new Pre-Orders like Batman Earth One B&W statue, Huntress Cover Girls statue & Team Fortress BLU action figures.

Star Wars Celebration VII will be in Anaheim in 2015, and some of our forum customizers have their eyes set on displaying a massive diorama there for all to see. We worked to do this before in 2007 for Celebration IV so there is precedent, but these projects take a lot of coordination and effort. The payoff is great though to see it all come together.
Do you have what it takes to join in? We’re still in the very early stages of this project, and encourage all customizers to check it out and see if you’d like to take part in this after the jump! We also encourage for all diorama builders out there to offer their suggestions to help make this project a success.
We would like to take a moment in observation of the anniversary of the September 11 Attack in 2001. It is hard to believe that it has been 12 years since our lives, our nation and the world were irrevocably changed that day.
We would also like to take the time to thank the men and women, family and friends, of our military and intelligence community that have defended and are defending our nation from a repeat of those attacks or something worse.
Gentle Giant has updated today and they are now taking pre-orders for the Jumbo Kenner Rebel Soldier – their next figure in their series of “Hoth Collection” releases.
