"Customizer Spotlight" Update: Peak-OB1 Custom Creations

Recently we were contacted and offered an opportunity to add some very unique custom action figures from "The Box" episode of The Clone Wars TV series to our personal collection. The figures were created by Star Wars customizer Peak-OB1 Custom Creations. We already owned his first version of Derrown and recently acquired the Cad Bane action figure from the series of figures that these newest additions were a part of. We were really excited to put these up on the shelves alongside the others.

We hope to complete the entire set one day!

Clone Wars "Shadow Warrior" Padmé Amidala created by Darth Daddy

Many would agree that collectors just didn't get as many versions of Padmé Amidala in the Clone Wars action figure line as we all would have liked.  Here at home we have been toying around with the idea of addressing that shortfall, so we recently made a mold of the first Padme Amidala action figure that we got in the toy line and made a mold of the head.  After, we poured a few resin casts from the mold we created, and wallah, a limitless supply of Padmé heads we could turn into any version of her from the show that we desired.

For our first run at the character, we went for the low hanging fruit.  With us covering "Shadow Warrior" this week for our YouTube show "Customizing The Clone Wars", we jumped at the chance at making Padmé in the Naboo garb that we saw her wear in "The Phantom Menace".  We painted up one of the head casts we made, and then used the figures Hasbro has already produced as a frame to add our painted head to.  We weren't sure if we liked the body of the Phantom Menace figure better, or the 2012 version that came out more recently. Let us know your preference in the comment section below!

ROGUE ONE "JYN ERSO - IMPERIAL FLIGHT CREW HELMET MODIFICATION" by Customs for the Kid

Not sure about all of you, but we had to grab a second Jyn Erso action figure from when she was disguised as an Imperial Flight crew member just so we could make this custom version of Jyn.  Only a slight helmet modification was needed to show Jyn's face through the helmet like she appeared in the film.  Grab your sharpest razor blade and with some parent supervision, slice away the thin bit of rubber to show Jyn's eyes when she wears the helmet.

We grabbed some "Death Star Walls" from a kit that Star Wars customizer, Thank The Maker, recently offered for sale on his eBay page. It's a cheap way to dress up your shelf displays.  They are perfect for photo shoots! I have a feeling we'll be using them in many photo shoots to come.  We were able to paint and assemble the kit in only a day. It can be a great craft project to entertain kids on a rainy day too!  We love these walls for their versatility. You can build them out however you like!
