Custom Tree Huts Project Update


The guys at TwelfthParsec have written in to let us know about an update on their campaign to deliver some cool Ewok related items to the market (including playsets).  They have met their fundraising goal, but have been able to extend their campaign a bit longer with some new stretch goals in mind, and for each goal met, contributors will get special perks with additional accessories with their order.

Read all about it here, and their campaign page can be accessed here.   Better act quick if you want to get your hands on one of these sets though, the campaign ends in one week!

"Shasa Tiel" created by Darth Daddy

This was a quick action figure Dad threw together to help promote Yakfinities #52: Jabba's Denezins.  Dad used the body of a Black Series Ceremonial Luke with the head and hands of the Ishi Tib action figure.  Dad just had to repaint the neck, jacket, and shirt to finish this guy off after he put some pins in the hand to articulate them.

Tiel left SoroSuub after being blackmailed and fell to crime, ending up in the employ of Jabba Desilijic Tiure. She continued her accounting profession there under Mosep Binneed alongside Tessek and Loje Nella. Like them, she came to despise her employer and sought to regain her freedom.

Tiel was present in Jabba's Palace, asleep on Jabba's dais, when Leia Organa disguised as Boushh, attempted to free Han Solo from carbonite. She later witnessed Luke Skywalker's encounter with the rancor and was aboard the Khetanna when the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon broke out.

We'll have another custom action figure from Jabba's next week so make sure you come back to see it!

Dad's Shasa Tiel was featured on the front page of Imperial Shipyards.

Make any custom of a character you consider to be part of Jabba's gang, and you're set! Just make it a new custom! It can be fan fiction, EU, ROTJ based, whatever - entries will be accepted April 1 - July 31.  As always will have some random prizes announced during the Roundup Report.
