Progress continues on the next installment of The Enloe Trials photonovel series, as more customs and sets are completed. The current timeline is for the next chapter to be released in July. For a sneak peak, head on over to the forums.
The current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge runs through June 30 – for more information on how you can take part and enter your own Cloud City Denizen, click here!
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!
For the second week in a row, a TRU in my area has stocked two cases of new figures – still not nearly enough to go around, but a positive sign hopefully.
The new Death Squad Commander is a fantastic figure for sure, but I missed out on Darth Malgus, and decided to pass on the other new figures from the wave. There will be another time, but for now I was just happy to get these great figures from Wave 3.

The latest Yakfinities Customizing Challenge continues, and with a theme that we haven’t tackled before, there’s some very interesting concepts being shown off in the forums.
And with the lull in new product these days, there’s never been a better time to roll up your sleeves and add some new figures to your collection in a different way – by creating your own figures! So check out some really cool customs or submit your own after the jump!
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!
