Stronox is back with a JOE Update... -- Posted by Tamer on Friday, March 27 2015
"Firefly is one of my favorite characters in the joeverse and while I have made numerous versions of him over the years this is by far my current favorite. He was made from numerous figure parts and bits and I made his backpack more functional by adding a removable explosive that is magnetized. Also, the remote is small enough to fit inside his pack as well allowing him to have all his gear stored on the figure." Click here to go add it to your collection.

Jedi Minstrel is back with two new custom figures... -- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, March 26 2015
"Lt. Abrudeghavi'jattenevigda "Ajay" Ghevirethreh was showing great strides in special ops training until an accident during maneuvers cost him his arms. He did not want a discharge and neither did Cmdr. Niev'Kasel. So, Lt. Ghevirethreh underwent an experimental cyborg program. His reflexes were heightened along with his strength level. At first, Ajay resented the arms but now he appreciates having them as he continues to serve the Republic and his friends." I do enjoy reading JM's back stories.

Sillof sends word on a customizing panel to be held at Celebration Anaheim! -- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, March 25 2015
"There are going to be 2 great customizing related events C7. For our 2nd straight celebration I will be hosting the panel on action figure customizing. The panel is on the collectors stage 210AB on Friday from 12-1. The panel will feature the work of many customizers, as well as tips, tricks, resources, line debuts, figure giveaways, and the coveted limited edition collector's track pins. The other event is something new I am trying this year. As usual I will be helping out at the Diorama Workshop (this years theme is Cloud City) We are located in Hall B directly next to the Hasbro who is officially sponsoring us. Two times a day each day I will be offering classes to help people learn how to do the hobby. Attendees will sign up at the show and have to bring 2 figures - one to modify and one to donate." Sounds like a great time to me!
