Customizer Spotlight: Evilivo

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).

A Better Way to 5POA?

Like it or not, Hasbro’s probably not going to move away from 5POA for a while in the 3.75″ lineup.  But, maybe there’s a better way for them to entice the market to purchase more of these figures.

Would a set of alternate arms be a good way to do this?  For myself, yes, this would be a very fun way for Hasbro to make this product line much more appealing as it would help aleviate some of the frustrations with the 5POA concept.

For over two decades now, many collectors have found themselves frustrated by a lack of playsets, dioramas, and basic environments to display their 3.75″ figures with.

But those days are coming to a close thanks to Galactic Trading Post, who is now offering some fantastic high quality plastic walls to satiate this need.  To order these directly, click here.

If you’re on the fence about these, I can say based on the 6″ scale walls, their product is amazing.  You can see a few pics of those in our forums.
