DARTH DADDY's CUSTOMIZING CORNER: OUT OF COMMISSION TOYS








OUT OF COMMISSION TOYS aka TTT hasn't been making toys as frequently as he used to, but I just had to show off his custom Star Wars figures around the ghoulish days of Halloween.  His zombie Star Wars offerings are my personal favorites in the Star Wars custom community and I know you'll all enjoy them as much as I do.

TTT's father collected Star Wars figures in the 70's-80's. Him and his brother used to modify their toys as kids, usually with a bench vice for their Hot Wheel cars and a lighter for their model planes/cars.  Back in 2007, a few of his toys fell off a shelf; everything was okay except for a Transformers Alternators Smokescreen figure that was busted in half at its waist. He decided to add battle damage...why not - nothing to lose. He just went at it, melted some bits, dremeled off chunks, had fun and it worked rather well. Then he found he wanted to do another...and another...and...well, the rest is history.

TTT now specializes in pretty much anything, models, figures...cars, statues...clean and shiny to rusty, burned, trashed or zombiefied. Most fans know him for his battle damage and zombie work. 2014 marks 7 years of TTT "torturing your toys".

He's just the perfect customizer for the week of Halloween with his awesome zombie Star Wars creations. Have you ever wondered what the zombie apocalypse would look like in the Star Wars universe. Check out these customs and find out.  His paint work is as fun as it gets!  Now, go get your "Death Trooper" on!
