A new customizing community has launched via a private Facebook group. Star Wars: A Custom 1:12 Galaxy is a community of like-minded customizers as well as an educational resource for 1:12 Star Wars custom figures and dioramas. Their customizer’s archive is a variable “cookbook” chock-full of figure recipes, diorama blueprints, tutorial guides and a databank of materials that will allow you to search out and find the unique custom cast parts you need to complete any project.
To help promote this endeavor, we are proud to debut their recipe and tutorial for an amazing 6″ Yak Face/Saelt Marae figure. Click on through for the detailed images and info.

In this digital age of news delivery we are looking into how to further enhance this site and how we bring the news to you. If you follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) you are already accustomed to our near real-time/live updates and notifications of breaking news, product announcements, exclusive reveals and in-stock availability of in-demand products.
That said, we are researching the implementation of push notifications transmitted to you via your phone, tablet, and desktop computers for even faster news delivery as we know you can’t be online every where at once. The notifications would be opt-in of course but we wanted to take your temperature on this first before implementing that functionality (if at all).
If you have an opinion on the matter, feel free to leave a comment. If received positively, we’d look for it to go into effect February 1.
