Legion078 adds arty to Darth Revan...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, December 5 2016
"I would like to share a little modification of the TAC 3 3/4" Darth Revan with you. About half a year ago I got a modified version of Darth Revan from eBay. I talked to the guy who sold this to me and he said he had kit-bashed his Revan because the original has got no articulation in his legs...he told me that he took the legs of Luke Skywalker (TLC Comic Pack - Empire II) for this project. Two weeks ago I got the original version of Revan, too. So now I can show you a direct comparison.

And since the new 6" Darth Revan starts hitting shelves at the moment I thought it was a good time to share this one."

Click through to see the full recipe and description. I think its just makes so much sense. Always add the arty!

I-am-Boba-Fett is back with an update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Monday, December 5 2016
"Here's a custom Vintage Star Wars Style resin cast GOTAL action figure. This unpainted custom action figure is fully poseable with five points of vintage style articulation. This figure is made in the classic 3.75 inches tall/1:18 scale.

This fully poseable custom resin cast figure is FOR SALE and can be purchased at this link."

Looks nice to me!

It is great to see this, especially those us who are new to 3D Printing and want to get a handle on how to get started!

Ron Hembling finishes his 6" Hovertank Cupola...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, December 4 2016
"Hi All,

The cupola section and commander are now done, I sprayed the cupola with Tamiya's JLN Grey and then gave it three light washes of watered down black and once dry I dry brushed silver and gun metal to show the wear and tear.

I then painted the borders black and then gave the cupola and commander a weathering using pastel chalks to finish them off.


Daggone that looks good Ron!

Gold Leader One adds a wash to his latest builds...
-- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, December 4 2016
"I finally learned the wash technique, and after a few runs I applied it to the Rogue One U-wing and TFA Millennium Falcon Revell kits. I never realized just how easy this was, and now I'm looking to go back and apply some washes to some of my past customs. These ships needed a wash, they were practically white, especially the U-wing."

I like the new look!

More model news from JDeck!
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, December 3 2016
"Im not sure how this got past my radar but Zvezda is making a 1/2700 Star Destroyer. Zvezda is pretty nice Russian model manufacturer. At over 20 inches its said to be the largest licenced star wars model kit in production. You'd be right thinking its going to cost a pretty penny. I've seen listings at a very high cost and shipping from Russia is outrageous. Release date is sometime this month."

Wow, that looks great. Look for us to feature more info when we find it!

Foxtrot Delta shows us some custom blisters...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, December 3 2016

my Custom Blisters done on my Custom Cardbacks for 3 3/4 scale figures
, The Largest will fit a B'omarr Monk or Probot and similar sized figures, the Large will fit Darth Vader or Chewbacca and most similiar sized figures of that height, the Medium will fit most 3 3/4" to 4" figures, and the Small will fit Jawas or Astromech Droids and most similiar sized figures of that height."

Talk about what is gonna be a great looking carded custom!

Darth Daddy is back with multiple updates...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, December 3 2016
From The Force Awakens to Rogue One and adding much needed articulation to some ROTJ hand swaps this update is very detailed. Daggone I sure wish we could get figures artied up like that all the time from Hasbro!

Foxtrot Delta gives us a Vintage Custom...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, December 3 2016
"Here's General Lando Calrissian using a vintage Gen Madine body, vintage Lando head and custom vinyl cape."

Now that is a great looking figure. What a neat idea!

Brandon Flores inspires Ron Hembling's latest work...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, December 3 2016
"Hi All,

When I saw Brandon Flores's 6" Hover Tank I knew I had to make something for my Hover Tank Pilot which will be painted to a Hover Tank Commander.

I couldn't make the full hover tank due to room so I decided to make the Hover Tank's Cupola section. The lower base section was done using foam board and then I used plastic card to cover the base. The cupola and the other pieces were made using plastic card, military model parts, lego piece and a battery.


Pretty cool if I do say so myself!

Stronox is back wiith a TOR Update...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, December 3 2016
"Prince Arcann from the Old Republic Game..."

He looks pretty spot on to me. I am really liking me some Stronox Customs here lately. Did everyone see his DC Customs? I am still reeling from those.

Syamsul Sam shares a great Ewok Drummer...
-- Posted by Tamer on Saturday, December 3 2016
Once again courtesy of our Facebook Page. I could really see these taking off if Hasbro would make. Couldn't you just see a multi-figure set of something like these with a full helmet drum set!

He is still building. Looks like Rogue One is really exploding at his house. I like it!

Ajunta Pall corrects some errors...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, December 2 2016
"So I picked up two shoretroopers/scarif troopers yesterday from my local walmart, and I noticed the box said "Scarif stormtrooper squad leader" but when I did a little research on the ranking system they are using for Rogue One I realized that these were not in fact squad leaders but normal troopers. So I decided to repaint them to reflect the higher ranking officers starting with captain. Later i'll do one of the squad leader which is the one that comes with Moroff in the 5poa two pack."

Yepper, definitely looks a ton better and it now more authentic.

Darth Optimus is back after a long hiatus!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, December 2 2016
"So, hello 'Yarders. It's been a long while. I don't really do SW customs anymore. I've moved onto my own 'verse, which is "The Wastelands". It was inspired by the "Mad Max" franchise (especially "Fury Road"), but is not limited to it. The Wastelands are populated with monsters, mutants, warlords, demigods, robots...pretty much whatever I think is cool.

With that, though...my first custom in the "Wastelands" is "Mad" Max Rokatansky, former Main Force Police officer. The look is a gestalt of his movie looks, with artistic license. My timeline takes place shortly after "Fury Road", with Max liberating a car and motorcycle from Immortan Joe's motorpool and heading out. The cycle "stows" in the passenger side of the car, in-universe. The rear of the car has been modded to house all manner of removeable gear and equipment. All of Max's gear is fully removeable, as well."

Remember folks we love our Star Wars here at ISY, but we also love all kinds of customizing and genres including the great verse Darth Optimus is exploring. So cool to have him back!

Bronxstalker doesn't give into high prices and makes a great custom...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, December 2 2016
"I'm a glutton for punishment. I wanted one of those Titanfall 6" Threezero figures, but at a few hundred dollars, it's well beyond my price range...so I decided to make my own, using a standard marvel legend figure.

It's still a work in progress, but here's my humble beginnings and where it's at currently."

That seems like such a cool game. I need to find both versions and get ready for snow days!
