I must apologize, as we’re way overdue for a Customizer Spotlight highlighting some of the work of the fantastic customizers who share their work in our forums.
So without further delay, check out the latest updates by forum member DarthDaddy aka Customs for the Kid by clicking here!
Ross stores continue to receive a variety of random Hasbro Star Wars item; seemingly on a weekly basis. If you have a Ross in your area, share with us what you’re finding here in the comments or in our forums.
Personal Note: The red A-Wing from TLJ continues to elude me at Ross, but I did pick one up via eBay for a fair price. I must say, that thing is awesome.
The next chapter in The Enloe Trials photonovel series is getting closer to release. Head on over to the forums for a few previews and a behind the scenes look!
We are starting to really see the benefit that photo-real technology has on bringing realism to some classic characters, such as Luke Skywalker. The facial features on these figures compared to older counterparts is stunning.
And as we know, Hasbro has dug into the same well over and over many times through the years… and as long as the figures have been improvements over previous versions, many of us have happily purchased the product (nearly the same product as before).
Here we are in 2019… many of us have been invested in the modern hobby for 20+ years… so, how many characters do you want to see Hasbro visit again with photo-real? Are you willing to jump back into the prequels again with a Chancellor Palpatine, Padme, etc? Or just OT classics like Luke and Han Solo? Or not at all?
Share your thoughts after the jump!
Personal Note: I’m in it for the long haul. I’ll purchase nearly any 3.75″ product that is an upgrade over the older version… especially for the OT era. And I guess sequel era too, I just don’t have room for much prequel stuff anymore. Older versions of figures go into my custom fodder supplies.
Another Yakfinities Customizing Challenge is underway! Entries for The Unknown Regions will be accepted up through September 30.

Keep an eye on your email inboxes and get ready for some new greatness from The Vintage Collection! Hasbro’s latest TVC offerings are beginning to ship now from e-tailers (depending on where you may have pre-ordered from, your experiences may vary).
Red Brick Collectibles will be hosting their first collector show in the St. Louis area on Sunday, September 15 at the Luina Event Center, located at 4532 S Lindbergh Blvd, St. Louis MO 63127.
The owners (Ron and Wade) are great guys that I’ve personally dealt with many times over the years. Check out the details by clicking here!
Yakface Forum member Lance Quazar is on the floor at SDCC and sent over a handful of teaser pics. Check them out here and share your thoughts!
Here’s to especially hoping we can help spread some big news on the GTP Toys front this weekend…
We just wrapped up our 72nd Yakfinities Customizing Challenge in the Yakface forums, and the Roundup Report (with random prize winners) is ready for your viewing pleasure.
Once again, some of the quality and creativity here is through the roof… so head on over to the forums and check out nearly 100 custom figures and dioramas after the jump!
Over a year ago, we began multiple rounds of fan voting by Yakface readers to help identify just which figures our readers wanted to see Hasbro make the most from The Vintage Collection and The Black Series.
The final numbers are in, and we have posted them in our forums. I think it’s safe to say that the interest in the Original Trilogy still holds very strong based on these results, and both 3.75″ and 6″ totals came to the same “Most Wanted” figure.
Find out which character that is, and check out the full results at the links below!
