A Challenger Appears

It's the start of a new month and we're excited to add something new to our repertoire. After lots of time and work, we've finally gotten around to producing our first "mass produced" figure: Twi'lek Assassin

Twi'lek Assassin

This figure includes a pair of our new Bolted Gauntlets, printed arms, printed legs, a printed curved torso, and a printed tentacle head. We will also be releasing the Bolted Gauntlets individually for those that would prefer that. These gauntlets will come in silver and black.

We’ve got your backs~

Hey everyone!

We've decided to go back and make a few edits to our old curved torso designs that lacked back printing. These revamps will be adding back printing to all of them or possibly making a few changes. All of these revamps will occur over a span of time rather than all at once, so we will be re-releasing these in between new product releases and they will not all come at once.

For our first update, we decided to add back printing to Sand Blue Midriff Curved Torso (Aayla torso). We will also be releasing it in a variety of colors as well: blue, light flesh, tan, and yellow. As an added bonus, we've also added in an updated version of the head in sand blue, blue, light flesh, yellow and sand green.

We hope you enjoy these updates and Happy Customizing!

Restocking

We hope you enjoy another chance at getting these helmets.
