"CUSTOMIZING THE CLONE WARS" - EPISODE 41



Celebration Anaheim featured Clone Wars custom action figure artists, Peak-OB1 Custom Creations & Darth Daddy of "Customs for the Kid" display some more Clone Wars custom action figures as they continue to recreate Season 3 of The Clone Wars TV series by making characters from the episode "Evil Plans".




Sneekpick Customs Studio added to "Customs I Wish I Owned"


Based out of California, Sneekpick Custom Studio started about six years ago. Inspired by a love for action figures, and for the lack of characters that we really wanted to see in the market with no chance they would be made, Sneekpick tried their best to fill in the gaps in our collections with  the help of friends and clients from all over the world. Sneekpick Custom Studio is pretty confident that they can make any character that you can imagine. While they hold a special love for the Star wars Universe, they also love G.I. Joe, DC, Marvel, Robotech, and Call of Duty among many others. They take very seriously every commission they receive, and try to represent each character as closely to the original as possible, working in the small details and articulation to make sure that at the end you are happy with the custom figure that you receive from them. 

Sneekpick loves the creative process, the design, the building, painting and the passion! Just head to their Facebook page for all inquiries!

OUTER RIM TRADERS


Outer Rim Traders is a new casting storefront that customizers and diorama builders should take notice of. This site will be of particular interest to people with a Jabba Palace focus.  The store contains some casts of props that can do a great deal to enhance your Jabba displays from Tauntaun heads to fruit in a bowl.  Casts are available in both the 1:12 and 1:18 scale.  We highly recommend giving this store a view.  Not only do they have great pieces for fans of Star Wars, but there is plenty available for followers of the Indiana Jones films as well.  Outer Rim Traders has plenty for everyone!

"STOVEPIPE DROID" created by ELIAS

This custom was made from a resin cast figure produced by Hole In The Ground Productions that Elias had received as a gift for Christmas.  This past weekend, Elias took the time to add a custom paint job to the casted figure so he could add the new addition to his Jawa display of his collection here at home.  He painted it with Citadel's Chainmail, Mithril Silver and Gunmetal paints.  To get the rust effect, he sprayed the figure with Testors Dullcote Spray, sprinkled some Cinnamon onto the figure from our spice drawer, and then recoated the figure a second time with the Dullcote to lock in the weathered look.

Elias saw some hosing in a still shot we screen grabbed from the film that he wanted to add to the cast.  He found a skinny black hose from our fodder and used some wiring from a twisty tie to position the hose in the desired position before gluing it into place.

We really love Hole In The Ground Productions offerings as of late.  They have really enhanced the look of our collection shelves.  We highly recommend checking out their webstore to see if there is anything you see to add to your own collections.
