A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge has just begun – the Pegwarmer Roundup!
Let’s face it, there’s figures that Hasbro makes just too many of, or the figure just falls short of expectations. Sometimes, this is where customizers come in and save the day by making a purchase nobody else will… for a custom!
Got some pegwarmers in your area that a retailer can’t seem to give away? Help these unwanted toys find a home (only to be chopped up repainted) by joining in the Pegwarmer Roundup!
Forum member Warsaw has posted in our forums a jaw-dropping update featuring an original design of the AT-DP and driver by Joe Johnston during production of The Empire Strikes Back. Enjoy this masterful update after the jump!
The hobby may be slow right now, but customizers always find a way to make even the dark times a bit brighter with their creative works by sharing them with the community.
So we kick things off on this Customizer Mega Spotlight with Peakob1, who shows off yet again another group of amazing Clone Wars custom figures. Check them out here.
Next, mousedroidhoojib has created something truly unique; Padme Amidala in a bio-hazard suit!
Also, General Rieeken really is outdated by today’s standards, so check out how forum member Customjedi is fixing that.
Last but not least, forum member CloneTroopr shows off a fantastic custom of Republic Commando Gregor.
Got some customs to share? Head on over to the forums and show us what you’ve got!
Forum member CloneCrazy is at it again, with another outstanding installment in his photonovel series, Will of the Force.
Head on over to the forums to check out his latest chapter, and be sure to leave him some feedback for his efforts!
Our current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge only has a couple weeks left, as entries will be accepted through June 30.
So, if you’re planning on making a custom figure, be sure to get your entry submitted before the deadline! Or if you’d just like to kick back and check out some cool customs made by other collectors, the forums are just a click away!
If you’ve been able to get your hands on Hasbro’s latest 3.75″ Han Solo, chances are you are wondering how they could have given this otherwise flawless figure such a poorly sculpted (and painted) head.
There’s a quite simple fix though, as thankfully back in 2006, Hasbro “got it right” with Harrison Ford’s likeness.
This is a simple head swap for everyone, and takes no customizing skills whatsoever – head on over to the forums for a closer look and to share your thoughts!
Another Yakfinities Customizing Challenge will launch in July, but before then, we need for our forum members to decide on the theme. Head on over to the forums to cast your vote.
Also don’t forget, there’s still a few weeks left to submit an entry in the current Yakfinities, Rebel Militia (lots of great customs posted already, so be sure to check those out even if you’re not a customizer).
For those active in our forums, you’re probably already familiar with the awesome custom diorama pieces that forum member Raylen creates, and offers up to fellow collectors. He specializes in obscure items that some may overlook, but these things are just too cool to not be part of any Star Wars 3.75″ collection.
His latest sneak peek is one many of us have been hoping would be available for our collections for decades now, and that time is finally coming if you’re willing to roll up your sleeves and do a bit of painting! Head on over to the forums for a closer look!
The latest Yakfinities Customzing Challenge focuses on the various troops fighting against the oppression of the Galactic Empire. Entries will be accepted through June 30, and so far we’ve had some great submissions.
Check the most recent custom entries out, or add your own after the jump!
Our current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge goes through June 30, but it’s time to start thinking about ideas for the next one, which kicks off in July! After over 50 of these customizing events, we could always use some fresh ideas, so be sure to share your suggestions in our comments section or in the forums!
The adventures of Rykrof Enloe return to the Yakface Forums today, as the former Clone Wars hero finds himself mixed up in his first major battle of the Galactic Civil War. Head on over to the forums for the full chapter; The 8th Trial: Catastrophe after the jump!

Tonight we highlight some more of the great custom works of several of our forum members!

Next, my kind of scum shows off another batch of his custom figures, including one using several non-Star Wars parts to create a spectacular alien. I don’t know what the heck this thing is, but it’s awesome!
We’ve also got some really cool new droids that you’ll want to see by Jawaking, who has been on one heck of a role lately with his customs.
Last but not least, forum newcomer AjuntaPall has posted a ton of custom figures for your viewing pleasure – check out his latest updates here.
