Toys R US Express has the BAD Droid LIne (all 7) for only $14.99! Talk about a deal!

Posted by Imperial Shipyards on Sunday, August 2, 2015

The Amazon BAD Line is on sale at Toys R US Express for only $14.99!
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, August 2 2015
I was out doing a bit of traveling today and came across an outlet store called Toys R Us Express. After seeing that most things were a bit more than average retail I stopped looking too hard. When I went to the register to buy my daughter a small toy I saw this deal at checkout! Oh yeah, score one for the Tamer!

Now unless someone tells me I am crazy. I am thinking this was the set Amazon had as an exclusive back in 2013. I wonder how Toys R Us got em?

Ron Hembling gives us a new 6" Shuttle Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, August 2 2015
"Hi All, Little more work done to the shuttle, I have attached the interior walls and the screen. I will try and get another update done before Wednesday as I'm going under the knife again on the ankle so I'll be bed bound for up to a week depending on how the surgery goes."

Well we hope he makes a fast recovery so he can get back to work on this fantastic project. Looking good so far Ron!

Larifari turns an Orc into a Sith!
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, August 2 2015
"I bought this Orc figure,because it was really cheap,and i want those Wargs too. Orc and Warg included in the same box). And I saw other guys amazing custom figures. Hmm... Let's make a custom figure! So here it is my first custom Sith figure. I used everything what i find at home,leather, old t-shirt for the robe,paper for the helmet, toothpick for the lightsaber."

Do you remember yesterday when I shared his first dios and said how impressive this customizer is? Ditto on his custom action figures.

Mandalore25 finishes his Celeste...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, August 2 2015
"Finished Celeste Morne, I think I got quite a likeness to her, tried to get all the little details."

He has a gallery on Facebook of the start to finish of this one (definitely very involved) I will try to feature in the future.

I-am-Boba-Fett gives us a Crossover...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, August 2 2015
"Here's a custom STAR WARS/TOMB RAIDER CROSSOVER figure.
This is Lara Croft as a Jedi Master. Her Jedi name is Kaura L'Roft. She features a lightsaber with a magnetically attach/detach blade. Her lightsaber hilt magnetically attaches to her belt too. Fully poseable figure made by me awhile back. She is up for sale here."

Darth Daddy is back with a TCW Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, August 2 2015
"This figure has been put off to the side for way longer than I can remember. Mostly because it was tons of work to pull off. Both Vizsla's head and helmet needed heavy modification and on top of that, I had to fabricate the jetpack from scratch. So what did I do, I avoided the project for as long as I could tolerate. All avoidance aside, I definitely wanted to add this version of Pre Vizsla to the collection since he was featured so prominently in this form during the later seasons of The Clone Wars television series. He took more hours to fabricate than I care to recall, but now that he is completed, I couldn't be happier."

He looks good to me. And once again we want to wish Brian and Elias a happy 5 year anniversary for Customsforthekid.blogpsot.com!

Mandalore25 shows us a WIP...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, August 1 2015
"Have another Celeste Morne wip pic. Hoping to finish her soon."

I am still reeling from his War Droid he showed us in the last custom challenge. Is his sculpting getting really great or what!

Here is Larifari's 2nd Diorama Attempt...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, August 1 2015
"This is my second diorama to my imperial guys."

Yeah, I think he is gonna have one very bright future in making dioramas. Wow!

Larifari shows us his very first dio...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, August 1 2015
"This is my first diorama attempt. I started making a cantina, but I changed my mind so quickly, after I saw the size of the upcoming diorama."

It sure looks good to me. Larifari has shown up and is really impressing me with his ships and dios.

JDeck shows us a WIP 6" Power Droid...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, August 1 2015
"Ever since Hemble made his 6" droids when I first started here, and saw some droids built by Sprywalker and others. I've been wanting to build some of my own. Now that I've figured out how to make Jawas I need droids to go with them. This is the first step on my GONK droid. I still need to sand the face area, just waiting for putty to dry fully. I put more parts on him than I initially wanted, but if he's owned by Jawas he's probably pretty jury rigged."

He is much further along than the above pic, but I wanted to give you an idea of what he is using to put this together. Why don't you give it a try yourself?

Wraithnine is showing us some new Sideshow Custom Troopers!
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, August 1 2015
His Sideshow Customizing is the stuff of legend nowadays and I really enjoyed seeing his new Troopers. SSC may never get to some of these variations, but Jay sure is. Click here to see his latest.

Ajunta Pall is back with a new Sith Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, August 1 2015
"Due to LIFE I haven't been able to post anything all week. So noe that I have a little free time. Heres a little sneak peak at an update I did tonight

Darth Nihilus' character was created by artist Brian Menze and was inspired by the Famous Hayao Miyazaki's animated character named NO-FACE, from the cartoon movie "Spirited Away"!! My ex Wife introduced me to this movie she's a big anime head. I thought he looked familiar when I first learned of this SW character and decided to do some background research. Cool."

Cool background on this character I didn't know. Ajunta Pall has really been on fire with his customs lately. I can't keep up with his updates so make sure you scroll up and down to get all that custom goodness in!

Stan is back with a Smuggler Lando...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, August 1 2015
"Enjoy the decals everyone; I have a second set on working on that I share eventually! Latest custom is Lando smuggler outfit, big thanks to Darth Daddy and CustomJedi for the receipe! Add the upholstery stap on leg!"

Customizers being inspired by, and helping other customizers. Stan is the epitome of that. Don't forget we have his decals shared here if you missed them from previous postings. These were the ones I showcased during announcements on CAFN!

Drakos shows us some new kitbashes...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, August 1 2015
"Just wanted to share some kitbashes I have on the side since I'm still too busy to work on my WIP customs.
Here are 2 kitbash Mandalorians."

They look good to me. I especially like the one with the wings!
