STAR WARS REBELS: INQUISITOR LIGHTSABER MODS

We are in the process of making a super-articulated version of the Inquisitor here at home.  The villain of Star Wars Rebels has a really interesting lightsaber whose look provides several variations. We tried to recreate two alternate looks for his lightsaber to go with the lightsaber that was included with the original release of the figure.  We used an X-acto knife to create the half ignited saber, and we used a magnet to attach the hilt to the Inquisitor's back.  These are quick and easy modifications you can do at home in just a few short minutes.

DARTH DADDY's CUSTOMIZING CORNER: THE FORCE AWAKENS







CUSTOMIZER SPOTLIGHT UPDATE: "Garazeb Orrelios aka Zeb" custom articulated action figure created by SWK KUSTOMS

I was really impressed with the Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger customs that we received from SWK Kustoms.  So much so that when I saw that he posted a "Zeb aka Garazeb Orrelios" action figure with ball jointed elbows, knees and ankles, as well as the inclusion of swivel wrists, I just had to grab it. The figure was well worth the expense of having to make it myself.  The joints SWK Kustoms added are seamless and strong.  These are very well engineered figures.  While, the custom figures that he has made do lack ball jointed shoulders, even I will admit as a seasoned customizer myself, that even I would forgo the modification.  It would be more trouble than it was worth.  Almost all of us complained about the 5 points of articulation in the Rebels line that Hasbro was releasing, so it's nice to know that there are customizers out there providing the articulation that we all desire to give our figures more pose-ability for play.

With around 300 customs under his belt, SWK Kustoms specializes in fully articulated figures! SWK Kustoms creates fully articulated and detailed Custom 4” figures. Star Wars, Star Trek, DC, Marvel or anything you can think of. With SWK you can also become your favorite character as well: Jedi, Sith, Storm trooper, Mandalorian and much more. Figures can be purchased upon request. Price is based on how hard the piece is to make, usually between $50-150. All figures come with specialized weapons or gear & name plate stands.
