Customizer Spotlight: Evilivo

Tonight we spotlight the amazing custom work of expert customizer Evilivo, who has perfected Hasbro’s 3.75″ K-2SO by giving it a major upgrade in articulation (not to mention an enhanced paint job).

Hopefully we’ll see something along these lines in the Spring with the return of The Vintage Collection… until then (or if Hasbro disappoints), check out the tutorial he created so you can make your own after the jump!

Official 3.75″ Fans’ Choice Poll Now Open

StarWars.com has updated today, activating the official Hasbro 3.75″ Fans’ Choice Poll! After asking the fans and culling the lists submitted by nearly two dozen participating fan organizations, the following characters have been selected:

Dr. Aphra, Yak Face (Saelt-Marae), Emperor Palpatine, Sim Aloo, Clone Trooper “Fives” and Ahsoka Tano (Star Wars Rebels)

The winner of this poll will be realized in super-articulated form and released on the Vintage Collection card back in 2018. Vote early, vote often.

Hasbro Fans’ Choice Poll MIA?

We’ve been getting a lot of questions via email and social media regarding the status of the official Hasbro’s Fans’ Choice poll for the 3.75″ Vintage Collection. Per Hasbro press release and StarWars.com’s post, the poll was to have started yesterday (April 26) and run until April 30. As of this post, the poll has yet to go live but we’ll announce it as soon as it does.

UPDATE: Fans’ Choice Voting Is Now Closed

Voting is now closed and the counting has begun! We will reveal your “Top 6” on Friday after we submit the selections to Hasbro. May the odds be ever in your favor and thanks to all that participated!

UPDATE: Just a bit of info on the tabulation, if you submitted more than one vote from the same email address or social handle, ALL of your votes are eliminated as you are clearly trying to cheat or skew the results. If you posted anything in subject line of your email other than what was instructed, your vote was not counted because “rules”.

Customizer Spotlight: Peakob1

Customizer Peakob1 shows off his latest custom figures, as part of his vision of what a 40th Anniversary line should look like from Hasbro.   Head on over to the forums to check it all out!

Personal Note:  In my humble opinion, these kit bashed repaints honoring the original trilogy blow Hasbro’s 40th Anniversary line out of the water.  Imagine figures like these, on vintage-esque cards… ’nuff said.

Rumor Report: 4 “New” 3.75″ Black Series Figures

TBS_rumor_logo

Stop. Rumor Time. We’ve received a tad bit of intel regarding a future (not necessarily the next) wave of 3.75″ Black Series figures coming to Walmart next year.

Without spilling the beans fully, I can hint that all four will probably be repacks; two of them are potential army builders, one is a very requested figure from the Original Trilogy offered briefly in the Vintage Collection and one is a perennial favorite.

Any guesses? Leave them in the comment section or forums and stay tuned for more vague rumors and cryptic writings (maybe even for Episode VIII) in the coming days.
