Our latest Yakfinities Customizing Challenge has just concluded, and this was one of the best ones yet. The volume of customs submitted for the Rogue One theme was off the charts, and the level of talent shown off here is mind boggling.
Check out the full report and see who is walking away with prizes after the jump!
If you have a Five Below store in your area, if may be worth your time to swing by and check out their toy section as many stores have been receiviving TFA figures that rarely made their way to big box retailers.
Personal Note: Even if you despise 5POA, some of these figures have good accessories and heads that work out great for customs.
A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge has just kicked off in the Yakface forums. Entries will be accepted through June 30. Head on over to the forums for all the details!
Target stores are running some good deals this week, including $9.89 price on TBS 6″ figures. The kicker though is that the only figures that rang up for this price at my local store were Jyn, Cassian and the Death Trooper. The tags indicate it’s all figures, so if you try and purchase others, they will likely ring up for $19.99 and you will need to explain the situation to the cashier.
Jedha Revolt sets are also $19.99 – which is a steal. And on top of that, you can text STAR10 to save $10 off a $50 Star Wars purchase, and STAR25 to save $25 off a $100 Star Wars purchase (excluding LEGO of course).
The only tough news here is on the new display shippers, they have limited Baze and Chirrut to 1x each in the shipper… which is typical of Hasbro’s poor distribution model. And the 3.75″ stuff… all stuff that was released last Fall… which is absolutely ridiculous. Where’s Raddus??
The folks at Galactic Trading Post have updated with news for everyone salivating over getting their hands on their highly anticipated Classic 3.75″ walls:
The last samples we received, we found a problem with the LED panel. It was shrinking in the mold and so the gap lines were not lining up with other walls. This had further delayed the walls, but we felt it had to be fixed despite additional delays. These samples we are receiving now with have this and clip tolerance changes. We again apologize for the delays, we hope that with these final samples all the kinks will be worked out. We will update you once we receive the samples and have a better timeline from the factory of when we will have these in.
Personal Note: I’ve been waiting over 20 years now for something like this to be made, so a bit of a delay here isn’t going to be the end of the world. It’s great that it really sounds like the 3.75″ scale product will be worth the wait; and those that have the 6″ scale wall sets can already attest to just how amazing these things are. This is factory quality stuff and you can order on their website.

A new chapter in The Enloe Trials is completed. Head on over to the forums for the latest adventure in the saga of Rykrof Enloe!
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.
The Enloe Trials Photonovel Series is about to pick up steam again – for previews of the next installment, click here!

The latest Yakfinities Customizing Challenge has kicked off, and the Rogue One theme is one that holds a ton of promise considering the depth of figures Hasbro has yet to offer in the ever-popular 3.75″ super articulated line.

Those of you who watch Star Wars Rebels are more than likely familiar with one of the highlights of Season 2… Captain Rex’s modified AT-TE!
Customizer Raylen has gone to great lengths to customize an AT-TE that would definitely give Hasbro a run for their money if they ever decided to update their Clone Wars version of this awesome vehicle.
Head on over to the forums for a closer look!
The latest Yakfinties Customizing Challenge has concluded, and with over 50 customs submitted, we once again have a fantastic Roundup Report to share.
Check it out and see who is walking away with prizes after the jump!
Customizing perfectionist Evilivo has shared several custom updates over the past few months in our forums, including a group of Phase II Clone Troopers that exemplify exactly how Hasbro needs to approach these army builders should they ever bring clone grunts back into circulations in the 3.75″ scale. Notice how the helmets are not oversized buckets that detract from the figure. Check out his update after the jump!
Personal Note: Nothing Hasbro did from 2010-2012 annoyed me more than the oversized bucket helmets they used on the spectacular VC45 mold Clone Trooper body. Why put such horrible helmets on such a great body? Hasbro admitted as much with our friends at Jeditemplearchives a few years ago… hopefully someday we will see some sort of definitive 3.75″ box set like what is currently being offered in the 6″ scale (or single carded figures, but I wouldn’t hold one’s breath).
Hasbro’s latest highly coveted 3.75″ TBS figures are starting to arrive for those that ordered through Walmart.com, and Yakface staff member Jodo has posted some great pics showcasing the Scarif Trooper in all its glory… check out the pics after the jump!
