Lately, there are a large number of Star Wars custom action figure artists displaying their work on Instagram, and there is where I found the latest artist to be added to our "Customs I Wish I Owned" page, CANTINA_SCUM.  The artist's customs remind me of figures I used to see in the Yakface Forums when I first started customizing myself, back when there were an abundance of super-articulated figures on shelves and a plethora of parts to choose from.  Fan fiction customs were everywhere to be found in those times and new creative creations could be found around every corner.  Then the 5poa figures started to dominate the collection and well, beautiful figures like CANTINA_SCUM's started to disappear and weren't as prominent as they once were.  His builds totally tap into some nostalgia for the good ole' days here at home reminding us of artists like Chewie, Incom aka Mr. Black's Customs and Dan of the Dead.  We really are excited to see more customs from this artist in the years to come.
