"CUSTOMIZING THE CLONE WARS" - EPISODE 30



Celebration Anaheim featured Clone Wars custom action figure artists, Peak-OB1 Custom Creations & Darth Daddy of "Customs for the Kid" continue breaking down Season 2 of The Clone Wars TV series as they showcase custom action figures from the episode "Bounty Hunters".




Mos Eisley Vent Tube



Last week, we posted a few new diorama pieces being offered by Hole In The Ground Productions. Well, the day after we published our post, a new item was listed that can enhance your Mos Eisley Spaceport dioramas.  It is a vent tube that was present in the short scene where Luke Skywalker sells his landspeeder to Wioslea.  The scene is only a few seconds long, but for diorama builders who want to recreate the scene this is a great addition to help you along your way.  Hope you all enjoy!

"CUSTOMIZING THE CLONE WARS" - EPISODE 29

featuring an "Admiral Trench" tutorial from Peak-OB1 Custom Creations


Peak-OB1 Custom Creations & Darth Daddy of "Customs for the Kid" continue breaking down Season 2 of The Clone Wars TV series as they showcase Clone Wars custom action figures from the episode "Cat and Mouse".







SUPER-ARTICULATED "REY (JAKKU)" created by Customs for the Kid

If only Hasbro provided consumers with a greater selection of super-articulated figures, or at the very least treat their consumer of the Black Series version of the Rey with all three heads for the character to justify the premium prices that they charge.  This version of the desert scavenger is just a simple head swap using the 5POA "Rogue One" Rey (Jakku) head with the Black Series body of Rey.  The combination looks great and the most lengthy part of the customizing process was opening the package for the two figures the parts came from. 

One day we would love to see Hasbro return to a larger super-articulated line and ditch the 5POA line all together. Until then, we have to create figures like this Jakku Rey by purchasing two figures to create the one we really want.

"Princess Leia - Boushh" Hand Swap by Customs for the Kid

If you are like us, and you really miss the removable thermal detonator from the 2006 Saga Collection Princess Leia Boushh figure well it only takes a quick hand swap to give the newer Black Series version of the character that cool touch to give her the look that you want.  

We even added a silver chain to the new Black Series Chewbacca with improved articulation to update the prisoner version of the figure until we have time to redo the head sculpt so it includes the dog collar.  Stay tuned for the new headsculpt , because it will definitely be coming sometime soon. Until then enjoy the benefits of the swapped out parts to give your current figures that little extra something that makes your collection display that much better.
