"CUSTOMS FOR THE KID" 2018 - YEAR IN REVIEW

A rather anemic year over at "Customs for the Kid" compared to previous years here at the blog. Where we formerly made a custom action figure once a week, this year we only had time to make sixteen figures in total. The less prolific output could be due to the incredible amount of work that went into "some" of these customs. Dad didn't put out as many customs as one would expect, and he was really excited to see me make half of the customs produced at the blog this year!

We had the honor of being interviewed a few times this year as well. Darth Daddy got interviewed by ChannelStarWars.com, and later in the year Customs for the Kid was interviewed by both MightyGoods.com and Fantha Tracks.

We also saw the return of our YouTube show, "Customizing The Clone Wars" this year. Due to our host Chad Peak of Peak-OB1 Custom Creations experiencing a tragic work related eye injury in August of 2017, we took a prolonged hiatus from the show that lasted about a year, but this Fall we came back firing on all cylinders. We have already posted up 4 new episodes so if you weren't aware, start watching!




The coolest development for me this year has been my inclusion in the running for "Action Figure Customizer of the Year" in the Toy News International 2018 Toy Awards. Round One of voting is currently active. I'm holding down the fort so far representing Star Wars customizers, but the competition is pretty fierce so fingers crossed. Any help our readers can offer would be greatly appreciated. You can register and vote here, and I thank you all in advance for your support! - Elias
