Customizer Spotlight: Peakob1

Once again, forum member Peakob1 knocks our socks off with another batch of amazing Clone Wars custom figures.

Great sculpting, painting and articulation really bring these animated custom figures to life; with a style that blends in great with the realistic versions of characters Hasbro usually produces.

Check out his latest update and leave him a comment or two after the jump!

Yakfinities #57 – Pegwarmer Roundup

pegwarmers1

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!

Customizer Mega Spotlight

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Also, General Rieeken really is outdated by today’s standards, so check out how forum member Customjedi is fixing that.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!

Rebel Militia Customizing Challenge

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!

So Easy a Caveman Can Do It…

headswap

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!

New Yakfinities Coming Soon

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).

More Diorama Greatness Coming…

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!
