As a reminder, we will have three random winners that will receive a prize… plus a random special prize winner who will receive a $25 gift certificate to our friends at Outer Rim Traders!

Yakfinities #83: Cantina Denizens

Yakfinities #83 will run through July 31.

Yakfinities is back, with a new Customizing Challenge category decided by our readers. The theme takes us back to the first days of the saga – Cantina Denizens! We will have three random winners as usual that will receive a prize… plus a random special prize winner who will receive a $25 gift certificate to our friends at Outer Rim Traders!

As always, fan fiction entries are encouraged… your creation does not have to be of a character that was shown on screen. Custom entries may be submitted through July 31, but remember they need to be of a new custom you made… and if you are in need of some parts for your entry, head on over to Outer Rim Traders and check out their offerings. They have some great stuff at very reasonable prices… below are just a few examples!

So, head on over to our forums to get started by clicking here!
