DARTH DADDY's CUSTOMIZING CORNER: Whiskeytango


Darth Daddy's Customizing Corner featured Star Wars customizer Whiskeytango in his latest post over at The Star Wars Underworld.
 


Whiskeytango started customizing in 2009 after finding the excellent work of some of the greats on thefwoosh.com. He toiled away on comic book figures, ignoring his true love, Star Wars, until his dream of 6" figures was realized with the release of the Black Series. 

Now he spends his time working on custom versions of characters who get official releases announced right after he finishes, which doesn't make him angry at all. Not a bit. Not... not even a little bit.

I figured it was time we show off some of the talented artists working in the 6" scale since I haven't showcased the larger custom action figures that are being produced.  Whiskeytango has been making some amazing figures in the new Star Wars action figure scale and after seeing what he's accomplished, I'm eager to see what he produces in the future.  If you want to see more 6" customs from this artist, visit the latest "Customs I Wish I Owned" feature on the Customs for the Kid blog.

"CLONE WARS WEEQUAY PIRATE" created by Darth Daddy & Elias

We had big customizing plans this past week when we were on vacation. Unfortunately, this action figure of a Clone Wars Weequay pirate is all we have to show for it.  Yeah, we know...another pirate.  We worked on this figure over the course of the week. Every time either one of us walked past him, we worked on the action figure a little more until he was done.

I'd hate to share what we thought we'd have finished by the end of our week of rest and relaxation, because our latest offering doesn't even come close to what we had envisioned.

Over the summer, Elias makes all the custom figures, so I can take a break. The little guy was more interested in playing with the toys in his room than making some new ones, so we made none of the custom creations that I thought we would.

Don't really know what we will be revealing in the near future, because we are going to be making it up as we go along for a while. We haven't been very productive lately, and we've neglected getting any of our new larger projects started.  Hope you enjoy the new pirate!

Whiskeytango Added to "Customs I Wish I Owned"




Whiskeytango started customizing in 2009 after finding the excellent work of some of the greats on thefwoosh.com. He toiled away on comic book figures, ignoring his true love, Star Wars, until his dream of 6" figures was realized with the release of the Black Series. 

Now he spends his time working on custom versions of characters who get official releases announced right after he finishes, which doesn't make him angry at all. Not a bit. Not... not even a little bit.

We figured it was time we show off some of the talented artists working in the 6" scale since we haven't dove into the larger custom action figures that are currently being produced just yet.  Whiskeytango has been making some amazing figures in the new action figure scale and after seeing what he's accomplished, we're eager to see what else he produces in the future.

DARTH DADDY's CUSTOMIZING CORNER: BugSkirt Customs

Darth Daddy's Customizing Corner featured Star Wars customizer BugSkirt Customs in his latest post over at The Star Wars Underworld.



I have been a longtime fan of Star Wars customizer BugSkirt ever since I first started to scour the forums to see what people were making. I followed his blog ever since I started our own, and I can tell you his customs are nothing short of amazing. BugSkirt kills his audience with creativity showing them action figures you just don't see anywhere else. We're still trying to figure out what he used for some of his heads.

BugSkirt, or John as most folks know him, has been a Star Wars fan since the summer of 1977. The Florida sun and his cousins wiped out his original Kenner toys, but he began figure collecting again with the arrival of the POTF2 toys. He started tinkering with custom figures around 2005 and the hobby has increasingly become a focus of his limited spare time.
