Entertainment Earth lists the fourth wave of Black Series Six Inch!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, April 18 2014
While we are all a little wistful that our favorite walking carpet didn't make it into this wave there is a lot to be excited about. I mean lets face it seeing the fact that they are packing in the hard to find Boba Fett and Stormtrooper is one smart idea. I am not used to Hasbro having those! Click here to get your preorder in. I expect these to sell out quickly.

Hemble finishes up his Six Inch Horus Diorama!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, April 18 2014
"Hi All, I decided to make another 6" diorama but this time add some lighting to it and a Egyptian style tomb was the way to go. Once the base was done it was painted and weathered using Vallejo and GW paints and pastel chalks." Trust me that link will take you to the land of awesome!

Sjefke creates a gorgeous TCW Barris Offee!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, April 18 2014
"I just finished a commission from a friend to whom I owed a favor. He asked for a super-articulated Season 5 TCW Barriss Offee. Just like with Scuba Ahsoka, I started with the lower body from Space Ahsoka There almost the same size as Barriss', but Ahsoka is a little more spritely, so I widened her hips with Aves Sculpt. I flattened out the shape of Ahsoka's boots and carved in Barriss' boots." Trust me, and I know this might sound weird, but you need to click on through just to see the hair sculpt work on this!

We welcome Thrawn Fan 01 to the Shipyards!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, April 18 2014
"Hey guys! I'm new customizing SW figures. In the past I've worked on model railroads and 1/35 scale WWII models. This is my first clone custom. His name is Scud. I've used the camo of Desert Shield/Desert Storm. Hope you like him." Well I sure do, that camo paint scheme is awesome!

Hanzo the Razor is back with more...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, April 18 2014
"Actually had some free time today. Decided to paint this figure to make it a little more accurate to the show. I'm liking it so far. I think my favorite part is how good the Nikto Guard head looks once you paint the horns. Just need to touch up some of the paint, her the symbol painted on his gauntlet, and find him the right lightsabers. Anyways. Here he is, Ima-Gun Di." Works for me!

Big Bad Toy Store

Big Bad Toy Store goes by the Power of Greyskull...
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, April 17 2014
Wow, this brings back great memories for me. I loved this show as a kid:

We have a small quantity of each of these figures on the way. Goat Man and the Loo-Kee & Kowl Two-Pack are each listed at $49.99.

This add-on set for the Icon Heroes Castle Grayskull includes the new bone base, Point Dread with the Talon Fighter, a Flag and Gun Turret and more. The set is listed at $164.99, $10 off the MSRP.

I have the theme song going on in my head now. Thanks BBTS!

Hemble starts a new Indy Dio!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, April 17 2014
"Hi All, Here are two pics of the 6" Indy dio I'm working on at the moment. The base is made out of foam core and once I got the look I wanted I glued it all together and once dry I used a thin led pencil to scribe all the heirogypths and stone and then used a thicker led pencil and went over the original trace. The indy figure is from Figma and the joints have already been superglued and then will have the joints sealed using putty he will be holding a torch in his right hand when it is complete." I wondered if Ron was gonna make a diorama for that new Figma Custom Indy and now I know!

Darth Streams shows us how the Black Series 6 inchers should have been carded!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, April 17 2014
Have you wondered what the new six inch line would have looked like on classic vintage styled cardbacks? I sure have and it was awesome to see DS' awesome Holiday Special Boba Fett with Custom Cardback. Hasbro, it would be awesome to see you do this too! Make sure you scroll around when you click into his update as there is a lot to see.

Darth Streams gives us an updated tutorial on how to make custom cardbacks!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, April 17 2014
If you have ever been thinking about making your own custom cardbacks for your custom action figures or that one of a kind action figure find then this video is one you are going to want to watch. Then, click into our custom cardback making thread to see some great product links to make your life easier if you decide to try this out!

Dark Knight 4516 gives us a Space Trees Update!
-- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, April 17 2014
"We have 7 days left so people still have a chance to get orders in! Final day to get your order into indiegogo by is April 23rd. All sets will now receive limited edition numbering (out of how many sold) to show you were the first to get one and considered what we like to call Limited "FIRST ORBIT" Edition for anyone who orders during our indiegogo campaign! Plus, We have 2 new stretch goals:

$11,000: If we can reach $11,000 everyone will get a not yet released Little Guy Bone Chest Armor Piece included with their set! So lets keep spreading the word and get those orders in! And try to reach that bonus!

$18,000: If we can reach $18,000 everyone will get a not yet released Forest Bait on a Stick included with their set! Used to trick humans and walking carpets into getting captured. So lets keep spreading the word and get those orders in. Lets try to reach the best goal of all!

Hopefully we can reach these goals before our campaign ends so we can get everyone who orders all these cool extra items. Also we have recently started printing and products are coming off our printers at a good rate."

Its sale time at Most Wanted Collectibles!

Order with confidence knowing these will arrive on your doorstep packed safely and securely. With a regular retail price of $20 per action figure you are essentially getting one six inch figure for free! Don't forget to check out MWC's entire Star Wars Collection while you are at it!

I thought this would be of great interest to those The Clone Wars Customizers and Collectors out there still going strong. Here is a case of TCW Action Figures with free shipping for $80! Remember this deal is over at midnight so you might want to order multiples!

A new update from Commando Gregor!
-- Posted by Tamer on Wednesday, April 16 2014
He showed up a few days ago with an awesome looking work in progress Bo-Katan. As you can see, he is definitely farther along now and the paint work is flawless. " The parts used by the way were Isabet Reau (torso, belt and arms), cw Aurra sing (pelvis, thighs and knee joints), cw mandalorian (lower legs) and a sculpted head."

Lucasclones is back with a great customs update...
