"CLONE WARS WEEQUAY PIRATE" created by Darth Daddy & Elias

We had big customizing plans this past week when we were on vacation. Unfortunately, this action figure of a Clone Wars Weequay pirate is all we have to show for it.  Yeah, we know...another pirate.  We worked on this figure over the course of the week. Every time either one of us walked past him, we worked on the action figure a little more until he was done.

I'd hate to share what we thought we'd have finished by the end of our week of rest and relaxation, because our latest offering doesn't even come close to what we had envisioned. 

Over the summer, Elias makes all the custom figures, so I can take a break. The little guy was more interested in playing with the toys in his room than making some new ones, so we made none of the custom creations that I thought we would.

Don't really know what we will be revealing in the near future, because we are going to be making it up as we go along for a while. We haven't been very productive lately, and we've neglected getting any of our new larger projects started.  Hope you enjoy the new pirate!

Whiskeytango Added to "Customs I Wish I Owned"




Whiskeytango started customizing in 2009 after finding the excellent work of some of the greats on thefwoosh.com. He toiled away on comic book figures, ignoring his true love, Star Wars, until his dream of 6" figures was realized with the release of the Black Series. 

Now he spends his time working on custom versions of characters who get official releases announced right after he finishes, which doesn't make him angry at all. Not a bit. Not... not even a little bit.

We figured it was time we show off some of the talented artists working in the 6" scale since we haven't dove into the larger custom action figures that are currently being produced just yet.  Whiskeytango has been making some amazing figures in the new action figure scale and after seeing what he's accomplished, we're eager to see what else he produces in the future.

LEAKED: The Internet Must Go (DO YOUR PART TO SAVE THE "CUSTOMS FOR THE KID" BLOG and THE REST OF THE INTERNET WHILE YOUR AT IT) - A MUST WATCH!




Check out this video and find out what the death of net neutrality means for your Star Wars fansites, blogs and podcasts.  It could be and end of an era unless we rebel against the Empire!

This issue should be discussed a great deal by the Star Wars community.  We as fans have really grown as a group because of how the internet works today.  Public discussion on proposed structural changes will only be heard until September 15, 2014.  This is super relevant.  Make sure you watch the video to its completion to be fully educated about what is at stake.
