As many of our readers sadly remember, the Star Wars fan community lost one of its most spirited customizers last July, Mike Martinez, known around the forums as Mercuryartstudios.
In his honor, three fan sites came together to realize a customizing contest that he had been working on, and the participation was amazing. We would like to thank the customizing community for such a strong showing in this multi-site customizing tribute to our friend that we miss so much. The theme was anything related to SWTOR, and entries could be fan fiction, etc. but did need to include three figures. It was basically a “loose interpretation” of an Evolutions theme from SWTOR.
The event has now come to a close, and we have a Roundup Report showing off all 60 customs made for this, as well, as some random winners, and a grand prize winner who is walking away with a very cool Star Wars collectible.
Check out the Roundup Report, and enjoy all the cool customs by clicking on the image above!
We continue to have fantastic custom work shown off in our forums, and it’s only right to highlight more of the hard efforts of our resident customizers!
