"Customs for the Kid" - Year in Review 2016


So, no huge stories this year.  Only another solid year of customizing.  We kept up with our usual fare of Star Wars custom action figures ranging from figures that a beginner could tackle, to fully sculpted figures for the more advanced artists.  A good portion of the figures we produced were from the Original Trilogy or the animated TV shows, but we took the time to sprinkle a Prequel character here and there as well. It was a nice way to round out our 6th year at the blog.








It was a great year for exposure! The "Customs for the Kid" Google+ page cleared 1 million views and Darth Daddy's Google+ page cleared 10.5 million. The blog's numbers have been surging too. We started strong at the beginning of the year with 21,603 views in the month of January, and closed out New Year's Eve, breaking a blog record with over a 1,000 views a day for December with 32,508 total views.




A good portion of the year was dedicated to kicking off the new YouTube show that put together with Star Wars custom action figure artist, Chad Peak aka Peak-OB1 Custom Creations called Customizing The Clone Wars. The show has been doing well so far, and we have been able to maintain a steady audience of Clone Wars  fans who check in every week to see their favorite Clone Wars characters made into action figures that were never available in stores.  We just wrapped up Season Two of the show, and we will be kicking off 2017 covering Season 3 of the beloved TV series in a few weeks.







Outside of that, it has been business as usual.  Other than a really cool podcast appearance that Dad did on Toy Run: The Star Wars Action Figure Cast, it has been a quiet, but otherwise productive year. As a special treat, check out the video below to see all the custom figures we produced in 2016.   Have a Happy New Year everyone, and we can't thank you all enough for all of your patronage!
