DARTH DADDY's CUSTOMIZING CORNER: CloneTroopr

Darth Daddy's Customizing Corner featured Star Wars customizer CloneTroopr in the latest Customizing Corner over at The Star Wars Underworld.






CloneTroopr started customizing in 2010. He aims to make figures that either Hasbro will never make (especially characters from games, books, etc., since Disney has now forbidden Hasbro from making any EU figures), has made badly, or sell for ridiculous prices online. Since his start, CloneTroopr’s learned many techniques in customizing from his fellow customizers, practice, experience, and just plain accidents. To keep the cost low, CloneTroopr’s fond of utilizing household materials to make his figures with items such as bread ties,  old pens, and otherwise recyclable plastic. CloneTroopr also loves the Knights of the Old Republic and the Old Republic video games, which is where he gets most of his customizing inspiration (he currently plays as Kavyne, Republic faction on the Harbinger server).

I recognize we haven't given enough love to the Old Republic when it comes to putting custom action figure art from these games on display, which is why we felt it was so important for us to feature CloneTroopr this week. Hope you all enjoy!

Although CloneTroopr has been asked on multiple occasions, he unfortunately doesn’t have any plans to do commission work in the in the present or near-future because of how busy he is with work (although you never know, “the future is always in motion”).

If you want to see more action figures created by CloneTroopr, be sure to check out the video slideshow of his work that I featured this week in the "Customs I Wish I Owned" post over at the Customs for the Kid blog.
