CUSTOMIZER SPOTLIGHT #27: LUCASCLONES

Lucasclones is a customizer that dives into everything. Right now he's building mini-dioramas for his custom action figures. He customizes Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Desolation, and several other toy lines. He recently even created an H.P. Lovecraft inspired custom. He has an active Youtube channel complete with figure reviews, tutorials, and custom action figure debuts. Lucasclone's podcast has been a boon to the custom action figure community. Working with Imperial Shipyards administrator Tamer on his podcast Custom Action Figure News he made customizers accessible to their fans while getting some great tips on how to make our toys better. His recent addition of "Rountable" discusssions need to be archived for all interested in the artform. These discussions provide a free education  worth a fortune.  I can't even begin to list the many contributions Lucasclones has brought to the community.  Dad became friends with Lucasclones shortly after we appeared on CAFN.  Most of these figures from this post were the result of swaps that they have done through the years. Dad has always loved the "Eyeball" figures that Lucasclones made. They are some of Dad's favorite figures in my collection.

Lucascones needed an Ahsoka Tano head for a commission he had to do and Dad had a few extras. Dad told Lucascones he was just getting ready to paint an Ahsoka head to make a Darkside Ahsoka as she appeared in the Mortis trilogy.  When they were talking Dad mentioned that he wasn't sure if he could pull off painting the head properly.  Lucasclones said he could paint it for him and Dad sent him both heads Lucaclones way.  A short time later I received the alternate Darkside Ahsoka head from Lucasclones for the custom action figure of Ahsoka that Dad had made.
