Customizer Mega Spotlight

This evening we take a moment to show some appreciation for the great customizers in our forums by sharing some of their work!

First off, stocos28 leads things off with a very cool Twi’lek custom, as well as several other figures in his customizing thread.

Next up, you’ll want to check out the above zombie astronaut courtesy of forum member tmoaswg.

Customizer mousedroidhoojib also knocks one out of the park with a realistic rendition of Duchess Satine Kryze from the Clone Wars.

Last but not least, we have a very cool comic book version of Luke Skywalker by forum member ScorpioAttack.

New Photonovel Previews

For all you customizing and photonovel fans, the next installment of The Enloe Trials is just around the corner.  Rykrof Enloe is about to find himself in a position he hoped to avoid most – in the heart of the Galactic Civil War!

SWTOR Customizing Tribute Roundup Report

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!

More Vintage Findings!

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.
