Darth Daddy's Customizing Corner featuring Star Wars customizer Colin Hobbs aka Colins Customs in the latest Customizing Corner over at The Star Wars Underworld.


Voort saBinring, or "Piggy" (X-wing: Wraith Squadron)

Colin Hobbs of Bedwas, Wales is, hands down, the most prolific customizer of Star Wars action figures in the entire world.  I thought I made a lot of custom action figures, Colin's output is just mind blowing.  He's tackled a lot of customs of Star Wars characters that I've seen no one else make.  Colin creates almost an action figure a day and his Facebook page is full of Star Wars figures from the galaxy far, far away.  He's made so many figures that I was overwhelmed when I had to decide what I should post.  After hours of trying to decide, I contacted Colin and asked him for his favorites.  A bulk of these photos were Colin's favorites, but I just had to add a few of my own too.  If you are a fan of Star Wars customs, you have to follow Colin.  You definitely want his creations in your Facebook feed.  

Colin doesn't really post in the fan forums because he doesn't have a computer, so he posts his figures on Facebook after he snaps a shot of his latest creation with his camera phone.  If you spend your time on Star Wars fan sites, this is one of the customizing masters you may have missed out on. 

Not only does he create a lot of modern looking Star Wars custom action figures,  but he also creates a lot of great custom Vintage action figures too.  So if you were never a fan of the modern Star Wars action figure line, Colin is a customizer that has a little something for everyone.  Make sure you follow his work!
