I am in the process of building a Mimban Lieutenant costume, and am therefore in a dedicated mudtrooper builders group on Facebook. One of the members recently finished their costume and was approved by the 501st. As a final touch for his build, he commissioned a custom cardback through Karbonite Kustoms using himself as the image. Not only would it be awesome to have a Kenner card of myself, it’s basically the coolest trooper around. When I saw this I was stunned. Hasbro, please. Give us this figure ASAP! Special thanks to Ricky R. and Karbonite Kustoms for sharing the images!
The kid from Customs for the Kid, Elias, has been nominated as action figure customizer of the year at Toy News International. We’ve collaborated in the past with Customs for the Kid and Peak-OB1, who focus on The Clone Wars figures that Hasbro has yet to give us (but should). If you wish to cast your vote in favor of Elias, click here and register to vote. Voting ends 2/3, though, so register and vote today! You may even win their giveaway…
Diorama parts maker Hole in the Ground Productions just released two new items today. I’m very impressed by the turnaround time on these as the prototype was just posted a few days ago on Facebook. The conference table is a whopping 10 inches in diameter!! According to the announcement, “the decals are not done yet for the conference table so if you order before they are, the decals will be mailed out later.” Hopefully with the ‘garbage masher’ door we’ll eventually see some trash compactor walls to go along with it!

If you are into building dioramas to display your figures (I know I am), you’ll definitely want to check out this Indigogo campaign for Hole In the Ground Productions. Only a couple days in and already 14% funded! Keep in mind this is just the first wave, and if funded there will be more diorama pieces coming soon.
The nice thing is you don’t have to worry about crazy funding costs, but you can buy in to some higher-end campaign rewards, too. There are good options for everyone to show their support for this awesome project!
