CAFN does a special podcast with Frank Diorio... -- Posted by Tamer on Sunday, May 19 2013
Frank Diorio is well known to customizing fans across the world and definitely a well known guest to CAFN. Chad and I were looking for a reason to podcast anyhow and used this special podcast episode with Diorama Workshop.com to announce a few things that I think all will like to hear.

Don't worry, Custom Action Figure News is gearing up for a new season. And if you would like to be on send me an email!
