Most Wanted Collectibles lists new GG Items...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, December 17 2014
"Gentle Giant brings you the Star Wars: Han Solo, Hero of Yavin Mini-Bust. Digitally sculpted from actual archival footage and designs, each mini-bust is rendered using the highest quality polystone and hand painted. Each pieces comes individually numbered and comes with a matching Certificate of Authenticity."

Matter of fact, they have a very extensive section for Gentle Giant Mini-Busts, many of which cannot be found anywhere let alone at their fantastic prices. I only shop for my Gentle Giant Items at Most Wanted Collectibles!



Sjefke is the latest winner in our BDay Custom Challenge...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, December 17 2014
His Ultimate Bastila Shan is perhaps the most fantastic rendition of her in custom form that I have seen. The facial work alone is noteworthy, but when you couple it with the fantastic movement this figure possesses along with his mini-diorama I really think he got into the spirit of the "Ultimate" vision we were after. Take a look at his entry with the full recipe and stay tuned as there are more random prizes to award as we count down to the grand prize announcements!



Commander Kurgan is back with a new Mandalorian...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, December 17 2014
"Okay, after I wasn't really happy with my previous interpretation of Munin Skirata and having re-read his description in Karen Traviss' book, I had to relaunch him. The figure is based on the Jodo Kast figure with the Wookie braids and the belt/pouches taken off, a Jango Fett gunbelt added and my all-time favorite Joe headsculpt. Much better, much cooler, much more Mando. Kandosii!" I like this one a good bit.



Hot Toys 1/4 Scale Boba Fett is now live...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, December 16 2014
"The name "Boba Fett" is no stranger to Star Wars fans. With his customized Mandalorian armor, deadly weaponry, and silent demeanor, Boba Fett was one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy. Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys are very excited to officially reveal Boba Fett as the first release in the Hot Toys Star Wars quarter scale collectible series!" Click here to order one now!



Dobiwan is today's BDay Challenge Winner!
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, December 16 2014
His great Ahsoka with Rex incognito is just another great entry for our birthday custom challenge. I really miss Ahsoka and sure hope we get to see her somewhere else down the road in one of the new shows or movies. Till then we have folks like James who keep her character alive. Don't worry we still have more entries to showcase and award prizes as we get closer to the grand prize announcements!



The Iron Panda is back with some modeling madness...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, December 16 2014
"Here´s some more: My Vintage Collection Snowspeeder.I added some details,modified and repainted the pilot und repainted the whole speeder.unfortunately I couldn´t find another Dak Ralter Figure to make the gunner...there´s even the "Bubble Wraps" on the Seat belts." I know I sure like it. The detail is amazing.



John Caliber presents Episode 4 of Netherworld...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, December 16 2014
The action is sure heating up in this episode as Luke and Leia are met from some ghosts from the past and the light saber action gets intense! Click through to read his latest chapter and if you need to catch up just click into our graphic fiction section.



JDeck is back with a riding Boba...
-- Posted by Tamer on Tuesday, December 16 2014
"I had to build a custom Boba Fett in order for him to fit on my Panna moon beast also so I know how wide to make its body and to build a custom saddle. Mainly he needed ball pivot hips in order to mount the beast. So I used dagobah training Luke's hips/thighs. I used ESB gauntlets and shins. ROTJ boots all on the animated fett body." Well I think it is looking good so far!



OC47150 is the latest BDay Custom Challenge Winner!
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, December 15 2014
His Clone Wars Deserter and Mini-Diorama are just a great idea of how a play-set (even a small one) can so complement an action figure and really push up the playability. I am having great fun featuring these great custom entries and artists. Stay tuned as we are definitely not done featuring all the great entrants and sending out prizes. Our celebrity judges have poured over the entries and you will just have to stay tuned to the grand prize announcements.



Peakob1 adds to his TCW Projects...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, December 15 2014
"Here are some updates from both the box project and the troopers of the republic army!" I must say he is sure keeping The Clone Wars alive and well around here too.



Sjefke sends word on a product we might want to take a look at...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, December 15 2014
"I dont know. These Target exclusive Megablock Halo action figures with the ball jointed shoulders and elbows look like they have a ton of potential." I surely can't argue with what he is showing us in the pic as it looks like a great way to fix the awful articulation in the new TESB 6" Yoda. And remember folks, if you have anything you come across you think would be great for customizing send me an email.

StarFall is our latest BDay Challenge Prize Winner...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, December 14 2014
His great Samurai Vader with just a ton of great weapons type accessories pushes this one over the top. He definitely answers the question, "What if Akira Kurosawa had directed a science fiction film--and what if Star Wars was a collaboration between Kurosawa and George Lucas?" Enjoy his custom as we work our way through all the great entries for our BDay Custom Challenge.
