Clonehead gives you a chance to make a Phase I Commander Cody! -- Posted by Tamer on Friday, February 27 2015
Complete with custom head sculpt, rangefinder, and shoulder antenna this is your chance to have a Phase I Version along with the Phase II that is previewed in Star Wars The Black Series 6" Wave 9. Click this link to go see his eBay Auction complete with a ton of awesome images to show what this will look like when painted up and attached. Thank you Clint for giving the rest of us this chance to have a Phase I Version. I have a feeling it will be a long time before Hasbro can even remotely contemplate making one of these themselves.
Ben Alius updates us on his wooden creations... -- Posted by Tamer on Friday, February 27 2015
"The build that I finished today. Not movie accurate... Still my son loves it!" And you know that is what really counts, but these are just fantastic. CHEWIE coined a good term it is like Star Wars meets Minecraft. I can't wait to see if he makes an AT-AT!
Starchaser shows us a new Jedi Custom... -- Posted by Tamer on Friday, February 27 2015
"I was looking through the old Tales of the Jedi and the Egyptian look caught my attention. I had this "Merk" figure from the Mini-mates Battle Beasts series with the "hieroglyphics" on the hood. Good base for an avian species Jedi I thought. Then I saw a Clone Wars Ki-Adi-Mundi hanging in a vintage toy shop and thought, "that body is thin enough to be a bird." And voila, Assipter Pernin was born." I love the idea of an Avian Jedi!

Mandalore25 is back with an update... -- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, February 26 2015
"This is my way of honoring the brave soldiers, and jedi who fell during the battle of Bathawui, by bringing their leader Belth Allusis to life. I'll never forget their sacrifice, no matter what Disney has to say about it. Personally I love Gnost Dural's Holorecords, and the way they depict the characters is simply perfection. And for anybody interested here's a link."
My Kind of Scum is back with an update... -- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, February 26 2015
"I'm leaving the podracers behind for a bit here - still haven't finished the last of the four, but I've been working on a few of my own created characters in the meantime. (Basically a kit bash of Roron Corobb and TBS Ree Yees...) First up, an Ithorian explorer. He is an ex-academic who decided to explore the unknown regions on his own rather than reading of the discoveries of others." He also some nice droid customs including a neat paint effect on the eyes of one.
I am really like Ben Alius' wooden creations... -- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, February 26 2015
His son wanted a Star Wars Action Figure Collection, but after seeing the exorbitant prices (trust me we can all associate there right!) he decided he would experiment with creating some wooden action figures and vehicles. The result has been one of the cutest renditions of Star Wars Customs I can remember in awhile. That AT-ST looks fantastic!
Its a Marvel Update from Most Wanted Collectibles! -- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, February 25 2015
"A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Kotobukiya's hit Marvel Comics ARTFX+ series has brought fans Avengers straight out of the comics, and now it turns to the big screen with the upcoming mega-blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron. Two mighty characters start the new collection headlined by the massive HULKBUSTER IRON MAN! A fan-favorite design from the comics that's coming in the Avengers sequel, the Hulkbuster is a specially-designed upgrade to the Iron Man armor created by Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark to combat the Hulk if he should go berserk.
Classified as the Iron Man Mark 44 armor, the Hulkbuster suit really tears it up! Based on its appearance in the film, the huge armor looks as if it leapt straight off the screen. Iron Man strides forward to grapple with the green-skinned Avenger, leg pistons cranking and his right arm stretching out to make contact. While the resemblance to the classic Iron Man armor is readily apparent (especially in the bright metallic red and gold color scheme), the Hulkbuster takes it to a whole new level with a towering frame, thick armor plating, and a stout shape. Best of all, that huge shape means a ton of surface area for amazing sculpting featuring all of the technological details of the Iron Man suit including surface armor, interior electronics, layered components, repulsor units, integrated weaponry, and much more!
Sculpted by the same master artist who's responsible for the Avengers Marvel Now series, Junnosuke Abe (RESTORE), Hulkbuster Iron Man stands an incredible 11 Â½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) to tower over his allies and enemies alike. Stark's latest and greatest battle suit lumbers across a brick-like display base, punishing the ground with its terrible weight. The Hulkbuster is one of the most impressive display pieces you'll ever own and it even pairs with the new Avengers: Age of Ultron Hulk ARTFX+ statue to make a fierce battle scene!"

"Here is my Shaak Ti as she stands now..the figures done, just waiting on the robe for her before I shoot my entry photos." Wow, talk about a wonderful six inch custom figure.

Click here to read the full contest details and get your own six inch Star Wars Custom in the works.
TS Hobbies checks back in with a six inch update... -- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, February 25 2015
"Quickly finished the Scout trooper up last night..probably isnt the best custom Ive ever done..just wanted a quickie..I also fixed the visor on the helmet too..think I'll do that with the rest of my scouts..I just painted a white trim piece around the lens to make it look more to size and shape that it should be." I think she looks pretty good.
