Darth Streams shows us his entry for the latest custom challenge...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, March 2 2015
He said he was cutting it down to the wire with this one, but his Snoova in 6" form just looks over the top awesome. I was really happy to see the EU Focus many Shipyards took with this latest custom challenge. Heaven knows if we will ever get some of these characters unless folks like DS make them. Don't forget folks, March 4th at midnight will be the last time to get your entry posted.

Tankster is back with Master Splinter...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, March 2 2015
"My Custom Classic Master Splinter an amalgamation of all Splinters in one. I wanted to make this fit as well as I could with the newer turtles used a 2003 splinter mixed with a unknown DC super hero body I had. The feet are from a DR Who Werewolf figure since the main body was pretty much the color he wore in the Turtle Cartoon it made it easier to paint. His staff was made from Electrical tape and a wooden dowel. I then re-painted all the grey parts like the head,hands feet and tail to match the original toon colors." The result is fantastic folks.



Smeagol92055 reviews Elite Force as Custom Fodder....
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, March 2 2015
"A quick review: the plastic is somewhat cheaper than the Star Wars Black line, though not nearly as cheap as other knock-off figures I've seen. The heads aren't ball-jointed, the joints are tight in their sockets and in danger of popping out if turned too quickly (which, coupled with the cheaper plastic, might equal a sheared-off limb or head if posed too many times), the paint apps aren't the best, but honestly, considering what I've seen from Hasbro of late, they're not that bad. A derpy eye here or there, but overall they're pretty clean-looking." Folks that is just the start of his review.

The Iron Panda shows more progress on his 6" Mando Gal...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, March 2 2015
"Thanks guys for all your kind words. I just finished sculpting on her and got started with the paint job. I liked the "greeblie-look" on Boba's Original costume and wanted to duplicate it on the belt, also I wanted an well worn look on the Armor itself. I have to finish the painting still, I haven't done anything to the boots or the belt yet, so I still have some work to do, not to think of a proper Base." Folks trust me the front is just as awesome as the back, but I had to show the paint work so far on that jetpack!

-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, February 28 2015
"It will be a hard project for me, because I don't have all the right tools, but this AT-AT build has started..." I have been enjoying his SW Wooden Creations all week. It is great to see he has started an AT-AT.
