Get ready for the SDCC Episode of Custom Action Figure News!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 31 2014
We will be back live this evening around 6:15 PM Eastern with a new episode of Custom Action Figure News. We will be joined by the super customizer Dayton Allen aka Sith Fire 30 to just talk toys. You know me, I made a huge outline, but I have promised I won't go too crazy on the 5 POA figures. I know, I know, but I promised! If you have anything you would like us to hit or an announcement you would like me to showcase place it here!



Wal-Mart.com lists the Hero Series Falcon...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 31 2014
I just got in a report for ISYer KRZTFR that he spotted that "Walmart.com has the big waste of money falcon for sale." Well for those who have to have it you can pre-order it for what looks to be an October 7th shipment. I am still on the fence about this one. The outside details looks great, but the fact that it is just a big ole hunk of plastic without any opening cockpit or playability with action figures just gives me pause.



Please vote in our Next Custom Challenge Poll...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 31 2014
Here is the chance for you to help us decide our next customizing challenge. There are many choices that came out of the hat for this one including Mandalorians, Super Hero Cross-Overs, Custom recreations from another artist, etc. You have until this weekend to get in your vote before we start on Monday!



Look ma no eyes!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 31 2014
I am sorry to start this off with a pun, but I just don't know what to say about this. A recent quick purchase of the new six inch Scout trooper yesterday allowed him to get home to find out his purchase was missing the eyes! Folks I am at a loss to describe how this missed what I am now wondering is quality control. While the owner sure does have a neat conversation piece now we can but wonder what other paint atrocities we are going to see in what should be the Cadillac of Hasbro's products. Seeing Hasbro's recent answer about our paint issue questions it makes me wonder how aware they really are?



Lucasclones reviews Danger at the Docks!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 31 2014
Wow it has been awhile since my buddy Chad has gotten his hands on anything good and it was great to see him post a new YouTube Video Review. I am hoping this is just the start of him finding new things on the pegs! Enjoy his video review of the Toys R US SDCC Exclusive Danger at the Docks JOE Set.



Elias is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 31 2014
"Here's another one from my little guy. He spent two days working on this one. He only finished the torture rack so far. He hasn't gotten to the droid itself yet. After seeing Chewie's version, he wants me to find some wires to add to the figure." Well doesn't that just look great! Man, I wonder whose arm we would have to twist now to get something like this out by Hasbro?



Wookie Balls adds to his Vintage Kenner Restoration Project...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 31 2014
His latest update includes these two restored Droids Action Figures in the form of R2 and 3PO and custom cards that make them look cash fresh. Ah I can remember how that cartoon was on my must watch list Saturday mornings. Wouldn't it be grand to see these on the pegs again!



Bronxstalker is back with a Storm Shadow...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, July 31 2014
"Here goes my extremely simple custom of my re-imagined Storm Shadow. Just a simple head swap and repaint. I really wanted to do a re-imagining of Storm Shadow, simply because, his name Storm Shadow really doesn't strike me as being "white". Both the words storm and shadow screams either black, grey, dreary, etc, so I made him just that. However, since the real Storm Shadow is indeed white, I dry brushed him with some lighter shades." It sure doe make more sense for me for a ninja not to stand out so much!



Buy this you should from Most Wanted Collectibles!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, July 30 2014
This 1/10 Scale Attakus TESB Yoda just looks fantastic to me. At only $61 dollars, that is the cheapest I have seen this for anywhere, if your store is even still listing it.

Don't forget to go to MWC for all you high end collectibles if you like getting them for lower prices. I mean I guess you could pay a higher price, but when you factor in the excellent customer service, fast and protected shipping it just seems like a no brainer to use em to me!



A TIE Interceptor in 6 inch scale!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, July 30 2014
Now I can't verify that exactly, but that sure does look like a 6 inch Storm Trooper standing in front of this. All I can say is that if you aren't watching our Facebook Page these are the types of things you may be missing out on. Click here for more images and information on that great TIE which I might add was 3D Printed!



Smeagol92055 shows us the first page of a great webcomic...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, July 30 2014
"Here's the very first page of my new sci-fi comic, Science Team Tau! I've been working on this comic for over two years now, and I finally am able to start producing actual artwork for it!" Look for us to feature this in our Graphic Fiction Section when he gives us the full chapter!



Darth Sinister presents a different point of view...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, July 30 2014
He is back with a new Star Wars Marvel Update. I am seriously liking all of the wonderful characters he is creating. I can't even imagine how well a wave or even line of SW Marvel Figures would be received if Hasbro would ever deem to make them.



Big Bad Toy Store relists the SDCC Jabba!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, July 30 2014
It was nice to wake up this morning and know there was still a good option to pick this up. Big Bad Toy Store is listing this for $115, which is a heck of a lot cheaper than you will find it listed for at the aforementioned evil bay! This had originally sold out so don't look for it to stay up there forever if you want it!



Clonesniper78 is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, July 30 2014
He is working on some JOE stuff as well as some work in progress Zombies. Ole Flint is looking pretty buff. Its always great to see an update from CS78.



Kweh-Chan is back with a July Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, July 30 2014
"I can't remember if I submitted the work in progress, or not, but regardless, I finally finished my Elsamoidian piece, simply so that I wouldn't have to through the entire month of July without finishing or submitting a piece of work." We also want to congratulate her on recently graduating from college with a Masters Degree in Astrophysics!
